What is a Temecula short sale process? BY now most homeowners have an idea of what a short sale is but don't know if it is the right option for them. A short sale will present itself as the best option to most homeowners if they.... Can no longer afford to make the mortgage payment. Need to move or relocate and can not sell the home due to current market values. Divorce or court orders a home to be sold. Nearing retirement and you need to downsize and reserve your capital. Or you just got in over your head and need a fresh start.  A short sale gives you a controlled exit to today's crazy real estate market and in almost all cases a complete break from a bad mortgage with no deficiency owed to your lender ever and no tax issues when you are an owner occupied home seller. What does it cos...

Do you know what it takes to close a short sale in Temecula? Want to find out what's in it for you? Aside from the very good benefit of not having to lose your home via foreclosure, are you ready to get a check for $30,000.00? "Are you ready to get a check for $30,000.00" - this was the exact text message I sent my client. I have been working on their Temecula short sale for almost a year now. It's had many ups and downs like most short sales in Temecula. It has had the sale date set three times and I have had it postponed three times. It has been approved twice and canceled twice. The lender is Chase on the 1st loan and Real Time Resolutions for the second. It has been a total nightmare to sync up these two lenders. Chase Bank has been very responsive and has offered the seller's $30,0...

What does it take to make a successful short sale transaction? Today I was very happy to be able to hand over a check for $30,000.00 to my camera shy short sale client.This check came from Chase Bank after a most challenging Temecula short sale with Chase Bank and Real Times Resolution.  Getting these two banks to agree on the terms of this short sale took over 6 months of tough negotiations, two flat turn downs, three sale dates and a lot of blogging to the social powers of the press.  Oh did I also mention three different buyers? :) Hard work  and dedication are what's needed to make sure your Temecula short sale closes successfully. With my determination to help you, we can make this happen for you too. Visit my website at  http://Realty-World.net/Short-Sale-Agents to find out how I ...

Sell your short sale without added stress! As the last step before a foreclosure, short sales can become an anxiety-inducing event in a person’s life. Just imagine how much time and money was spent on purchasing that dream home – only to end up having it listed under Temecula short sales. Simply put, a short sale is when the seller needs to unload a real estate property for a price that’s lower than the amount needed to cover the mortgage. It’s the last step before a foreclosure and while it’s not an ideal situation to be in, it’s definitely smarter than declaring bankruptcy. Homeowners resort to short sales due to various personal financial difficulties. But no matter what type of situation your credit is in, you can definitely score an excellent deal on a short sale – you just need to...

Short Sale Battle: Nation Star vs Nation Star I work hard and get my seller's short sale approved - that makes me a happy agent! :)I sent the approval to the buyer's agent, and that makes them happy.   This then begins the time period for the buyer to do their inspections and appraisal. Now we're on our way to our Temecula short sale closing! A little background into this short sale.  The buyer is FHA and is asking for closing costs to be paid by the seller. The seller's lender agreed to pay the buyers closing costs only on the condition that they get to do the buyers loan. OK, the buyer agrees. The seller's lender, Nation Star then counters the sales price of $285,000 to $335,000 - the buyer agrees to the counter. Now after the approval is tendered to the buyer they order their apprais...

2017 will be a good year for homeowners needing to use the short sale as an option to foreclosure.Most all, the major lenders and servicers are following the lead of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which have reduced the paper work needed and time to a Temecula short sale approval. See Chart below and enjoy the video.   Visit my website to find out more useful information about Temecula short sale: www.Temecula-ShortSaleAgents.com *Service providers may implement changes immediately*  The Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) Program is a government-sponsored initiative overseen by the U.S. Treasury Department and administered by Fannie Mae assisting all Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP)-eligible homeowners in avoiding foreclosure,specifically through short sales or deeds...

Got HAFA and 2 loans? Prepare for the battle. Well your short sale will be a bit more difficult for your short sale agent to get approved. It used to be that the second lender would be happy to sign off for $6,000.00 and allow you out of their loan.  Under HAFA guidelines your first lender can offer them up to $8,500.00 to release your second lien. Lately I have been running into short sales were the 2nd states they will not allow the short sale to continue unless they get the full $8,500.00 HAFA is a set of guidelines for lenders to follow, but that's just it: guidelines.  Many first lender will only offer 6% to 8% of the amount owed up to the maximum of $8.500 which ever is less to a second lien holder. Example you owe $70,000 to the second lender the first will offer $5,600.00 but th...

Should you short sale your home? Most sellers can easily get confused with short sales. What exactly is it and will you get any benefits from it? Let’s break it down. If you’re putting your home up for sale and it doesn’t get a high enough offer to cover your mortgage, but you need to unload that property so you take that low offer. Simply put, a short sale is when you end up “short” on paying back your mortgage and your bank agrees to accept an amount that’s less than what you owe on your loan.  Most of the time, homeowners are pushed into short sales due to personal financial difficulties which makes it impossible for them to pay their monthly mortgage. It’s hardly an ideal situation to be in, but it is definitely smarter than allowing yourself to declare bankruptcy or foreclosure on ...

Closing Cal Vet short sales slow and steady. :) I just closed another Cal Vet short sale! This type of short sales are very different from other types of short sales. With a Cal Vet short sale, we do day in and day out with the major lenders.  All Cal Vet short sale are handled out of their office in Sacramento CA. They are often understaffed and have to handle the short sales that come their way when they can find the time away from their core functions.   This means you, your seller and your buyer must be very patient. Would you believe this one took me 296 days to get approved? One good part of their process is as they are short staffed you are talking and negotiating to the same person through the whole process. An odd part of the Cal Vet short sale process is you get to do your own...

Here's a common email I get during the short sale process... Hi Sidney,   I just checked my mail at the house and found a letter dated June 11, from a lady by the name of Debra Gorham at HSBC with the subject "short sale assistance" declining the short sale offer because they have not received all of the required documentation.     I don't know if this is old information, we have been out of town for a few days and haven't been at the house to check the mail. Is there any documentation we need to provide?    I can bring the letter over to you, along with any documents needed, but it will have to be tomorrow.  Regards,Frank   And here's my usual reply to this confusing Temecula short sale predicament...   Not sure why you received this letter. Please get it to me for your file. I think t...
