but then I realized…there is no good day to talk about foreclosure!

This post is just as true here in the Northwest as it is in St. Louis.  Homeowners having difficulty paying tend to see The Bank hovering over them as this nebulous, swirling mass of grabbing hands.  It isn’t really. 

I always tell buyer when they’re looking at foreclosures, that the good part is The Bank has no emotional attachment to the house.  The bad part is The Bank has no emotional attachment to the house.  They don’t have to get out of it because they’re being transferred to Houston and they want the family all together.  But they also just want it off the books if the numbers make sense.

If you can’t pay, call The Bank and see what can be worked out.  It might turn into a good day to talk about foreclosure after all.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
