If you live in the gorgeous Hidden Trails Community in East Escondido and you purchased your home in approximately 2004, you may find that you are "upside down" or that you owe more to the bank than your home is worth. If you can afford to make the mortgage payments and you plan to stay in your home for awhile, then that is okay. But, if you need to sell, then you sell in a transaction called a short sale. So, if you live in Hidden Trails, East Escondido, and beyond, and need to participate in a short sale, read on. What Is a Short Sale? A short sale is a real estate transaction where the lender agrees to a accept a payoff for less than the full amount of the mortgage, and possibly forgive the remaining balance, pay the seller's closing costs, and pay the Realtor's commission. The loss ...

Although FHA has no minimum credit score requirement for FHA loans, currently many FHA lenders do impose a minimum score.  Most lenders have already moved their minimum credit score requirements to 620 or 640.  While there may be others, at this moment I am only aware of two wholesale lenders accepting between 550 and 580 with compensating factors and recent good credit.  After December 12, it looks like all lenders will move to a minimum of 620 unless they have a special investor tucked away somewhere.  Fannie Mae, announced that it "is revising the eligibility, underwriting, and pricing policy to support housing market liquidity and sustainability." In a statement released on Tuesday, September 24, 2009 Fannie said that starting December 12, 2009, the minimum credit score will be incr...

If you are a homeowner in Escondido, San Marcos or beyond who needs to sell, and if you owe more to the bank(s) than your property is worth, than you may need to participate in a short sale. In a short sale transaction, your real estate agent or a designated negotiator will negotiate with the bank(s) to forgive the difference between what you owe and the buyer's purchase price. Homeowners who are "Upside down" commonly ask, "How much does this cost?" Surprisingly, the answer is "Absolutely nothing." Homeowners become very surprised and dubious when they hear this response, but the explanation for this is very simple. In a traditional real estate transaction, the seller pays the Realtor® a commission to sell the property. If another Realtor® represents the buyer, then that commission is ...

If you are a seller who is considering a short sale in Escondido, San Diego County, and beyond, then you have probably heard all sorts of horror stores and short sales. No doubt you have heard that the banks are tough to deal with and that the transaction can be lengthy. There is good news, however! Most short sales actually close escrow-just as long as everyone is vested in the transaction. This past month our office closed two short sales where the process took over a year to complete. In neither case was the bank to blame. Here is what happened in one of those cases: A short sale in Oceanside, California was listed in August of last year. It received multiple offers, and the best offer was submitted to the bank. The bank approved the short sale in October of 2008. In November, the bu...
