During attorney review, one of the lawyers came across a title defect: in the 1880s, when the first deed was written, a restriction was placed on the property stating that the proceeds of any sale of the property would need to go to building a church in the community (This lot was donated for the first church building in town, and the grantor wanted to ensure that, one way or another, it would actually be built. The current leadership and I never saw the restriction because the title changed hands several times before actually being assigned to the church organization itself).<br/>Unfortunately, the wording is such that <em>any</em> sale of this lot would require proceeds to go to construction of a church building. Makes the property unmarketable. And yes, we did talk about quitclaim deeds; the buyers aren't interested.<br/><br/>As all of us NJ real estate agents know, there are only two ways to remedy this: get the heirs of the original grantor to release the restriction, or go to court and get the title altered.&nbsp;<br/><br/>-Has anyone here ever had to do an heir search? I'm looking for some sort of success story to assure my clients with.<br/><br/>-In the possibility that the heir search fails, how long does it take to process the quiet title?<br \><br \>0 replies Tue, 22 Jul 2014 18:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-long-does-it-take-to-do-change-a-title-restriction/550774/ 2014-07-22T18:06:00Z NEED HELP!!!!!

I just want to pick the brains of some agents on here that are willing to shed some light on the subject.<br/><br/>I am trying to build a large &nbsp;network of realtors and am making the cold calls and setting up appointments but was just curious as to what annoys realtors and what they look for initially through a phone call to say yes to setting up a brief face to face appointment. <br/><br/>I understand that when I call agents that I am probably the 20th lender to try and get an appointment to go over what my company and I can provide so I am curious what triggers some agents to say yes to setting up a face to face appointment. And what turns them off.<br/><br/>I wish I could just come out and say that yes I am always available and yes we close loans vey qickly, which is the truth, but isn't that the "speech" you hear all the time?<br/><br/>It is easier for me to show how&nbsp;I really am in person but it is getting that initial meeting that I am curious as to what agents and/or broker owners look for.<br/><br/>Thank you for reading and for your time if you post an answer!<br/><br/>Best wishes!<br/><br/>-Scott Frasetto<br/><br \><br \>6 replies Mon, 23 Jun 2014 20:23:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Agents-What-are-you-looking-for-in-a-lender/546802/ 2014-06-23T20:23:00Z My listing on Zillow says Woodbine but it is really Petersburg...BIG DIFFERENCE http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-listing-on-Zillow-says-Woodbine-but-it-is-really-Petersburg-BIG-DIFFERENCE/545051/ I am unable to edit it.
