Distressed properties - those that are "under water" where more is owed on the property than will be available from the proceeds of a sale of the property - are thankfully far fewer than during the crash during the latter years of the previous decade. Still - some do exist - and Short Sales are still a viable option when faced with a "must sell" scenario of an "under water" property. Currently running at less than 3% of the closed transactions every month in our MLS, homeowners in that 3%, whether in Goodyear or another part of the valley, can still use our help. The first step is to contact us so we can schedule a complimentary confidential consultation to discuss how the short sale process works, and the considerations for your particular circumstances.   Careful up front planning is ...

While there are far fewer people these days considering a Short Sale of their home in Goodyear, there are still some who may have purchased just before the "bust" last decade who may owe significantly more on the home than the proceeds of the sale will bring. What to do? A Short Sale is one such solution. A Short Sale is a "regular resale" with one distinct and significant difference. The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance(s) owed on the loan(s). Whether or not a homeowner meets the other "requirements" of their lender(s) such as a "valid" hardship can only be determined by consultation with a skilled and experienced professional with a solid Short Sale track record - we recommend a minimum of 100 closed Short Sales with a 90%+ Short Sale List to Close ratio. Th...

While the numbers of Short Sales and REOs in Goodyear are way down from the staggering levels following the market crash about 10 years ago, there are still some properties "under water" and some that have received a Notice of Default, the first step in the process that will result in the Trustee's Sale on the courthouse steps. It's always sad to see people give up and walk away from a home, particularly when alternatives exist which may well be better for them and their lien holders. We've learned that often those who "opt" to let the home go to foreclosure "by default" often believe that their personal circumstances prevent them from doing a Short Sale.   Circumstances such as: Multiple Home Loans IRS Income Tax Liens Past Due Child Support Past Due HOA Fees ...and the list goes on. I...

Although we no longer see the levels of Short Sales that we did a few years ago in Goodyear, Notices of Default continue to be issued, meaning that yet another Goodyear property is on the path towards foreclosure at auction on the courthouse steps. Suzanne and I wonder why the owners would allow the property to go to foreclosure, rather than investigate alternatives that may be mutually beneficial to themselves and their lenders. Not all properties heading for foreclosure are necessarily "under water" - which theoretically means they could be sold via a "traditional" sale rather than a "short sale" - but circumstances may mean there are other liens attached or other factors that inhibit or prevent the owners from selling the property - whether or not it's a short sale. Short Sales are "...

  While the Short Sale days of the previous decade are for the most part behind us, the reality is that there are still hundreds of homes "under water" in Arizona.   While it's true that not every property facing foreclosure in Goodyear is "under water", may of them are, and unfortunately many homeowners still don't understand that the likelihood is they will be far better off doing a Short Sale of their Goodyear home than allowing their Goodyear home to be sold at auction on the courthouse steps!    Short Sales are "regular resales" with one big difference.     Your lender(s) must agree to accept less than the amount(s) owed on your loan(s).   While there are many details regarding Short Sale Seller financial circumstances and the hardship they face, the bottom line is that most lender...

  There are still hundreds of homes "under water" in Arizona.   In other words - the homes are worth less than the mortgage balance(s) - so it's not surprising that many homeowners are looking for solutions to stop foreclosure.   One solution to stop foreclosure and mitigate damage to a homeowner's credit is a Short Sale.   Short Sales are "regular resales" with one big difference.   Your lender(s) must agree to accept less than the amount(s) owed on your loan(s).   While there are many details regarding Short Sale Seller financial circumstances and the hardship they face, the bottom line is that most lenders prefer to stop foreclosure in favor of processing a Short Sale where the Seller is able to procure a Fair Market Value contract for their home.   After all, why foreclose on a home...

While the number of homes "under water" in Goodyear is significantly less than just a few years ago, some homeowners who purchased just before the "crash" that started in 2007 are still in a position where they owe more on their home than will be forthcoming from proceeds of a sale of the home. If you need to sell your home, and you are in this situation, a Short Sale is one solution to this situation. By definition a Short Sale is a regular resale with one distinct and significant difference. The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance owed on the loan(s). Whether or not you meet the other "requirements" of your lender(s) such as a "valid" hardship can only be determined by consultation with a skilled and experienced professional. There should be no upfront charge f...

So, it's time to sell your current home.   And you have decided to list your home for sale with a real estate broker. How do you decide which real estate broker to list your home with? It can be tempting to list with the real estate broker who "promises" you the highest price - regardless of what the market data supports. In the industry that's known as "Buying a Listing".  The practice is - tell the Sellers what they want to hear - and then beat on them for price reductions once you have the listing.   Is that the way it should be? Let me put it another way - does that benefit the Seller?   Yesterday I met with a couple who wants to sell their home. I spent close to two hours with them - and not once did we discuss list price. Based on our discussion, they decided they will be listing ...
