Well as much as I enjoy the Mortgage industry, it just is not paying the bills right now.

Add to that another mouth to feed in the next week and i need to find some new work.

I plan on still doing mortgages in my spare time, but I really need something full time.

Prefer something somewhat professional, as my background is in industrial outside sales.

If you've heard of anything, I'd appreciate the heads up.

If I hear anything, I'll let you know.

Thanks to everyone, except you looking for homosexual help..

I really do enjoy my job now, but it's getting tough and money's running short. So it's time to bail before things get real bad.

I'd really like to find something in the Vancouver area, because Portland really sucks.

My ex wife is also a RE agent, and says foreclosures are up significantly this month. Heard this morning about some large lay-offs in the banks lending departments.

Buckle up...


Almost sounds like it's time for me to start looking at houses for my first.

Look for "short sales". Might could save a bunch of money. Go get pre-approved for a loan first (besides, Steve could use the business ), and get all your ducks in a row so the seller's bank has an easier time making a decision.

Very true, definitely a buyers market. Lots of people willing to get out of their houses before them end up being foreclosed.

My realator just told me down here they have about 18 months of stock basically. This time last year about 6 months. Great time for first time buyers for sure.....

Yes, but most now have to have 5-10% down payment. Which is the correct way, but difficult when everyone wants everything with zero down and interest only payments.

But if you can afford a home and actually document your income, right now is a great time to start buying. Summer is coming to an end soon and a lot of people are getting desperate to sell and are motivated.

Do you have a degree? What is your prime area of expertise?

I know our company (ATT Wireless Division) is always hiring.

That's our prob. We'd love to buy a place, but don't have the down payment. Last place we checked into was going to cost $2600 a month, and that ain't gonna happen.

Be patient, and see how things flush out. I don't think we will see a great buyers market combo of high numbers of homes for sale and extremely low rates again, but when things settle down to as low as they are going to go, all of the market conditions may be such that you could buy and afford it.

Figure out what you can afford as a payment, then start paying that for your monthly living expense now. Rent goes to the landlord and the rest goes someplace safe and as unaccessible as possible for a down payment.

It will cost more to buy than to rent now matter what.

Check your credit, work on any issues while getting your score as high as possible.

That's part of the problem, while not great, my credit isn't terrible. My darling brides credit on the other hand.....

Fortunately time heals all especially credit. Just make sure to have some open and active accounts under her name. Pay everything on time and keep the balances low.

We've also had good luck using some of the reputable credit repair places, but they cost money.

Get your free copies of your credit reports, and make sure what is there is accurate. Contest everything that is not.

Then just keep up on it.

By waiting until your credit scores are 700+ you will save thousands of dollars a year on payments.

Seems like they are only looking for Engineers and Telemarketers.

I've actually done work for Nautilus before, sold them cables for some machines and some test cables.

Right around 9/11 I was working with Nautilus(Direct Focus) to supply all of the cables to go on their machines at a new factory in Mexico. Then the economy came to a halt and off went my multi-million dollar per year contract. We were actually considering setting up a factory in Mexico just to produce those cables.


I'm making some in roads, it appears that Fastenal is looking for outside sales people and hopefully I have a fairly good shot at the job. Seeing how I've sold some of the same products and have 10+ years of industrial sales in this territory.

We'll see, please let me know if any of you hear of any other opportunities here in Clark County.
