Are Resetting Mortgages causing more short sales in 2015?

Yes,just when it looked like it was over for short sales they have picked up again inpart due to many homeowners not being able to afford the large raise in their mortgage payment.

This time the number one cause is unaffordability. Many homeowners that 
were given a loan mod 5 to 10 years ago are now getting letters from their lenders 
with major price adjustments to their house payments.

These price hikes are large and are now forcing homeowners to default on their payments and seek help from their lenders for a second or third time. This time most homeowners are finding that the lenders are no longer willing or able to help. So they must sell or face a foreclosure. While the option to sell maybe your best solution many homeowners find that their homes value still have not increased enough to repay the mortgage if sold today at current market value.

This is why in 2015 we are now seeing the come back of another option the short sale. Just when it was looking like short sale were going to be a thing of the past. Mortgage resets are causing a come back of the short sale process here in 2015.

A short sale is a solution to avoid foreclosure. A short sale will allow you to market and sell your home even thought you owe more the the current market value. You will net ZERO Dollars,but you avoid foreclosure and can remain in the home during the process which is taking 3 to 4 months to complete.

Here in California at the end of a short sale you are released of the mortgage in full and the lender can not come back after you for any deficiency. Plus you are NOT allowed to pay any costs of the short sale including agents commission.

Temecula Short Sales are getting shorter!

Good News! Short Sales are getting Shorter.

temecula short sales

Three weeks ago I told you about how I started submitting my Temecula short sales with Bank of America electronically instead of the old way.The old way…. collect all required documents,fax them to the bank,call the bank,the bank states they don’t have them and would you please re-fax them.Then once they do have it I called every week,waited on the phone and answered the same questions over and over again.Rinse & Repeat.Maybe after 2 months of this I would get the privilege to be able to talk to a real person that could make a decision,we call these people negotiator’s,I don’t know what to call all the others I have had to talk with previously,but stupid comes to my mind.This is a broken system and takes 3 months to complete.What a waste.

The new way….way better.Log into Bank America and request your short sale to be processed on line via the “Equator” System.I have entered 5 of my clients into this system in the last few weeks and already received 2 approvals with out ever having to call or talk to the stupid people.Its working!Short Sales are getting shorter,3 weeks not 3 months.I like it.I hope to see the other banks follow Bank America’s lead.

How to price a Short Sale Listing.

short sale pricingOK you have made the decision to short sale your home. Here is were you have your first disconnect.
With out the guidance of a short sale expert you would most likely overprice your home.
The goal in a short sale is to get an offer fast and one that the bank, your lender will accept.
Overprice the home and it will NOT generate an offer and your home will be foreclosed.
Underpricing the home WILL generate an offer that the bank will reject.
A Short Sale Specialist knows how to price your home for a successful short sale,not to high and not to low.
I am a Temecula Short Sale Specialist,call or email me for more details on how I price my short sale listings.

What is a  Short Sale? Short Sale Expert

A Short Sale, also called “Short Pay” is a process through which your lender agrees to settle your loan for less than what is owed to them. They do this as an alternative to the expensive and time consuming process of foreclosure. Each lender has their own  process through which they decide whether or not to accept a short sale, and while there are many similarities, each has its own requirements for approval. As a third party mediator, we have a distinct advantage in negotiating with your lender.  Short Sales are a way for Temecula homeowners to avoid foreclosure on their homes and still be able to show the mortgage as paid on your credit report. If your lender has told you a short sale is an option for you,call me your Temecula Short sale Expert.
