Antioch CA - Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac (I'll call them Fannie & Freddie in this article) are finally starting to realize that lenders are not doing their job. Between the two of them, Fannie and Freddie own around 55% and 65% of the country's mortgages. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. Freddie and Freddie have other companies act as the lender on their behalf. Those companies collect all the payments, run the accounting, and forward the check to Fannie and Freddie. In my opinion, these lenders are not doing their job. The owner of the loans lose lots of money because of these lenders incompetence. I have seen this first hand. Let me give you a few examples. Homeowners that would like to keep their home get no help ...

Antioch CA - "I can't process this short sale without the TPS form filled out with the seller's full name", the short sale negotiator told him. "But, based on my calculations, this short sale will help your company avoid a $17,000 loss", he replied. "So, you're telling me that unless I can get you the TPG form filled out, then you will reject this short sale and subject your company to a potential $17,000 loss,?" "Yes, you are right", she replied. "But $17,000 is a lot of money. Don't you agree?", he replied back. "I don't care about the money. The TPG form is company procedure", she said. The story above illustrates just how crazy short sale lender bureaucracy is today. The guy who told me that story couldn't remember the form name. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short s...

Antioch CA - Many people ask if they should do a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure and give their house back to their lender. A deed-in-lieu does have its benefits. Lenders like them because they speed up the foreclosure. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. A deed-in-lieu is the equivalent to a "No Contest" plea in a criminal trial. You just give up on the foreclosure. If there is a foreclosure court case, the judge will still have to schedule a foreclosure sale. Contrary to popular opinion, a deed-in-lieu does not automatically release you from the debt. This means that your lender could be pursuing you five years later, after you get back on your feet. There is an application process. You will have to spend between 5 and...

Antioch CA - We recently talked to another agent about her short sale listing. (Some of the details have been changed to hide their identity) She had been working on this short sale for 6-8 months with no success. The original buyer offered 265k for the house. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. The short sale lenders rejected the offer. The house ended up selling eight months later for 220k. Why did the short sale lenders reject the 265k offer, only to later on accept an offer for 45k less? Because the person negotiating with the short sale lenders didn't know what they were doing. Here's what happened. The first mortgage was owed $289,000. The 2nd was Bank of America, owed 60k. She submitted the 265k short sale off...

Antioch CA - I recently met a realtor in a another town. “I hate short sales", she told me. "They are so frustrating. They take forever. Most of mine have dragged out for 9-12 months. The short sale lenders are so tough to work with.” Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. The closest comparison I can think of is learning to ride a bike. Remember the first time you tried to ride a bike and you crashed and fell off? You felt like you would never be able to ride a bike. Maybe you told your mother, "I'm just not as smart as Timmy. He knows how to ride a bike." Apparently this agent does not specialize in short sales. Neither do a lot of the other agents that complain about them. These agents openly admit they hate short sa...

Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. Here is what we do when a customer has a concern with that. First, we will make sure that everything your neighbors see does not say "short sale" on it. The sign will look like all the other for sale signs in town.

Royal Rangers of Outpost 5 went on a hike in Black Diamonds Mine Regional Park on Saturday.  Royal Rangers is part of the Assembly of God Church and works a lot like Scouting.  Rangers Ministers and works with boys from K-12. About 20 of us showed up for the hike.  Black Diamond Mines is primarily an area that formerly had a a number of coal mines and small towns.  However, the picture of the boys is at the entrance to a sandstone mine.  The coal mines are dangerous and closed; although I think I went in one about 30 years ago in Boy Scouts.  Little Sherman in the picture is my 3 year old that went on the hike with us; but they would not let him go in the mine at that age.  He was very upset. Royal Rangers Out Post 5 meets at Calvary Temple in Concord.  Although technically in Concord i...
