Lenders push houses to foreclosure by demanding short sale offers to be 10% to 30% higher than market value. It’s a mystery. We can send the lender the electronic log from the lockbox to prove that 20 or 30 agents showed the house and that we got the highest offer the market will pay. We can send them comparable sales showing market value. We can show the banks the long days on market and all the comparable listings that never sold. Somehow the lender overrides reality. Foreclosures Cause Values To Spiral Down. Short Sales Reduce The Lender's Losses. The lender dooms the house to foreclosure rather than accepting a logical short sale. That causes more blight in the neighborhood, which brings values further down, which causes more future foreclosures. Many articles and studies have been ...

Recent Trend in Short Sales: 2nd position mortgage holder demands $X dollars more than the 1st mortgage holder is willing to allocate 1st position mortgage holder is unwilling to allocate more Seller doesn’t have the extra money to bring to closing Doom Loop Scenario #1 Buyer is unwilling or unable to pay the extra $X dollars on the seller’s behalf Buyer walks. Takes time to get a replacement buyer, the market continues to decline. 1st mortgage company loses much more than the $X dollars they withheld from the 2nd.

  One of the best aspects of living in Douglass Hills is the convenience of the park.  Regardless of your age or interests, the park offers plenty to do.  From a playground to tennis courts to sand volleyball pits to bike trails and open space for soccer, football, or frisbee golf; this green space has plenty for kids of all ages.  Grills and picnic tables are available for family gatherings, quiet picnics, etc.  There's even a large gazebo if your get-together is requires more space.  Finally, the Douglass Hills pool is adjacent to the park. While this public space is convenient to most of Middletown, there is nothing quite like being within walking distance.  This is a tremendous amenity for Douglass Hills residents. Playground Sand volleyball courts and plenty of open space for socc...
