Guest Speaker: Real Estate Attorney Jonathan Bishop

Buyer and Seller Beware: Only prepared buyers and sellers should enter into transactions involving distressed properties. Short sales, pre-foreclosures and foreclosures are fraught with potential missteps and ramifications that are normally not found in an already stressful situation ~ the buying or selling of a home. Banks have become more aggressive toward buyers, sellers and their representative. Learning all sides of a transaction is paramount when negotiating, especially when the banks have loss mitigation departments that are overwhelmed and/or ill prepared.

Real Estate Attorney Jonathan Bishop has extensive experience in lending, escrow, title and bank controlled properties. Realtor Pat Kapowich is a Certified Residential Broker and a contributor to the Saturday Q & A column Market Wise in the San Jose Mercury News.
