Okay, someone school me on this.  Did this guy offer ad space on his blog when he started it? Or is that a new development?  - Sorry - I haven't followed this guy at all and just went to the site and I'm shocked to see ads.  This guy is amazing.  How does this blog world work?

Did you real the post by the loss mitigation guy?  Unreal.  In explaining why he working for free:

3) professional ethics dictate that a no-fee arrangement be extended to one facing so much financial turmoil.

Looks like people are lining up to not get paid by this con artist.

On a positive note, its good to see people are seeing what a loser this kid is, and his 15 minutes will soon be over.

The icing on the cake would be an indictment for mortgage fraud.

Come on..you gotta give the guy credit for turning a bad experiance into a positive situation. I bet he's making money right now while people are making sarcastic comments jelous that they can't get their 15 minutes for something good, much less something bad.

I think he made some bad desiscions but I have to respect what he turned it into.

Most of you just sound jelous!

He's made it positive?  Multiple foreclosures, ruined credit and reputation and the positive spin is that he is making $1000 a month off his blog?  I was jealous of $1000 per month when I was 7 years old.  I don't get out of bed for it now.

There is nothing positive about this loser.

I bet you could be just like him if you set about a little fraud mixed with stupidity--maybe I am just "jelous"  (sounds like french for "the lous").

The kid is clearly a dips**t that needs media attention to make him feel loved. So sad.

Okay, so this guy has his foreclosure meltdown and starts a blog.  The blog becomes profitable, but he shuts it down.  He starts it back up again and he's making a grand monthly.  Who would continue to give this guy money?

Now he could write a book! 
"The 10 dumb real estate moves to make when you refuse to believe in market cycles" or "My addiction to Real Estate Riches - The Rush, The High, The Crash."  Something like that

LOL.

I have been following his lame story.  The guy is a complete idiot.  He is not in tough with reality on any level. I cannot understand how one could go to all the classes and then get in the mess that he got himself into.  There is so much more to the story, and I bet he ends up in jail on a fraud conviction.

I once read a statistic that said that a foreclosure accounts for a 1% decrease of home prices within 1 mile of the foreclosed property.  His actions have had a negative effect on countless others.

If he commited a crime of this magnitude he should go to jail.

To be jealous you would have to want to be as fortunate as Casey....Not me, I don't want to be that fortunate.....He might even be a sociopath..

This is his next scam.  Unfortunately for him, he is the one getting scammed, per usual.  He's going to do a self-published book, of which he has paid thousands up front, and will then get a cut of the proceeds.  Considering how many people are going to be willing to pony up for this garbage, and the fact that it is freely available on his blog, I don't see him making his money back on this.

 Negative - IMO. He has no one to blame but him and his greedy self. The lending industry has no one to blame but THEIR greedy selves. YOU (and I) have no one to blame in this case but the lending industry. You and I have both ridden the RE runup - perhaps waaaay up!

 Guess what - you and I OWE our home price appreciation to JUST HIS TYPE. Period. Do you think RE appreciation did its dance because of real investors? It was the speculators. Foreclosures are part of the process. Foreclosures occurred when SD did its run up, albeit they were masked by 30% appreciation at times. We all get some salt with our sugar, baby.

If he committed fraud he should be prosecuted. If he is found guilty he should be punished.

Simple.

His actions have helped make housing unaffordable for a lot of people, so I have no sympathy for him. But whether or not he is a sympathetic character or a creep has no bearing on his guilt, if he's guilty.

You are assuming that housing appreciation was a good thing for me.  Don't make that assumption.

Have you ever read this quote by Roosevelt:

http://www.zazzle.com/product/228067242545045860

Not saying you are all not doers but the kid tried and lost and that's much more than most people do. This story 5 years ago would have come out completely different.

Oh and you don't have to be jealous of his situation but I bet you he's a lot popular than you will ever be..that may leave room for jealousy.

$1,000 a month now..a book in a a few months. People can't get enough of this guy and that's marketable.

I think many people need to talk bad about him to make themselves feel like successful investors with their 4 property purchases....I realize this does not apply to all but I dare say most.

Just my .02 cents.

He wasn't a "doer." He was a monkey-see-monkey-doer. He jumped in because the smart people had already made money.

Absolutely!  That's why I chose Miss Thang in my analogy of this young man - he's a R.E. version of her!  Well - he'll make $$ from the blog and from the book and perhaps his earnings will be frozen by a judge to pay back whoever for these foreclosed homes.  I have to admit that I'm struck that this guy is making easy, passive income doing nothing basically. It's amazing that in this country with people working so hard on J.O.B.'s and paying dearly for college educations - jobs and industries outsourced hourly- someone bold like Casey can "win."  Now most of us don't want what he has or want what he is going through - but clearly, he has enough narcissism/sociopathy to keep himself in the light in such a negative manner - build a platform and make $$.

How is your property value affected by your next door neighbor living under house arrest?

Good! Here's another. How are the values of  luxury homes in Hollywood holding up in general. I doubt they are affected by the bubble...

Li Ka Shing's golf caddy approached him in '98 and lamented the fact that she'd bought 4 houses on spec and was deeply underwater. With a gimlet eye towards looking for the ability to bail on the properties.

Mr. Li suggested that a golf caddy speculating on 4 properties might be stupidly out of her depth. And that he wasn't personally responsible for her gamble, she was.

People like Casey aren't forward thinking entrepeneurs. They're gamblers. Excepting that, unlike most gamblers, Casey didn't gamble his own money.

Where do the chickens come home to roost? Well, stinkers like Casey will soon make their presence known through sub-par performance in your retirement fund. Or your parents pensions (and your requirement to top up such pensions so Mum & Dad don't have to dine on Cat food). And through the subsequent government bail-outs of those necessary societal institutions.

The whole notion that Casey and his ilk are 'hated' because they had the 'balls' to try and no one else did is risible. They gambled. And not with their money. And not with any intention of paying the piper personally in the event their gamble went punk.

Anyone who imagines that the opprobium his actions have brought forth is the result of jealousy is probably as morally bankrupt as Casey. In the kindest light, he's a fool. But under the more realistic light of honest scrutiny, he's a serial scammer. And perhaps worse.

Guys like Casey are one way black holes which suck down the efforts of hardworking people through a myriad of unintended results. We'll all pay more for borrowing money. We'll all get less result from our pension funds. We'll all ultimately pay the price for Casey's BIG ADVENTURE. And Casey won't. Guy's like Casey never do.

That's why we should hate guys like Casey. They're a cancer on society.

Cheers, Haggis
