        Buyers Need To Put Down A Cash Deposit To Show They Are Serious Antioch CA – Short Sales can be tough. Many buyers don’t understand the process and think that since it is a buyer’s market, then they set the rules. That’s not the case.   You, the seller set the rules. After all, you still own the property. But, more importantly, you must set the rules for offers. If you don’t then you dramatically reduce your odds of successfully short selling your property. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Here is what you should think about before you take your home off of the market. 1. You should only accept and work with one offer at a time. If you accept more than one offer at a time, then buyers get mad. The primary offer migh...

    Antioch CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Brent. Here is Brent’s Question. “If we are not behind on our mortgage but can’t sell our home through a normal sale because we don’t have any equity, can we still qualify for a short sale? We would like to sell this property and get another property where we are not upside down. Thank you!” asked Brent. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Here was our answer. Brent, there is actually a federal short sale program that encourages what you would like to do. It is called the FHA 4155 loan program. It allows a person that is short selling their house to buy another one right away. However, there are a few caveats. We have been told that you will need...

  Antioch CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Paul. Here is Paul’s Question. “I am thinking about a short sale, but I am behind on my property taxes. Will I still have to pay them if I short sale my home? Max.” Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Here is the answer to Paul’s Question: In most cases your lender will pay those property taxes. Property taxes are a first priority lien on a property. That means that if a property is foreclosed upon, then they still have to be paid. They don’t go away for any reason. This is also why most lenders want to charge you monthly and then pay the property taxes themselves. They know that the taxes are a big bill that only comes once a year. Not everyone ca...

    Antioch CA – We often get asked if a short sale is even worth the effort. “Do I need to have my short sale “Approved” by my lender before I put my home on the market?” one seller asked us. “When I called my lender they wouldn’t talk to me about my short sale. I am concerned that they might do that when I finally sell the property and I’ll never get the short sale approved.” Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Here was our answer. Most lenders will not talk to you about a short sale until you have several things in place. They want a solid offer from a pre-qualified home buyer along with all the necessary financial documents. Why do they do this? Because they only want to process short sales that will sell and close. Now, I...

      Antioch CA – It always amazes me how some people will do anything to have perfect credit. They would rather go hungry than risk harming their prefect credit rating. A good example is a guy I will call Seth. Seth has perfect credit. He has worked to keep perfect credit for the last 12 years. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Seth has a several credit cards with high balances. He ran the balances up when the economy was strong.

Here is a tactic you can use to delay the foreclosure process and even stop a foreclosure sale. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Here is a story from Alberto where he explains what to do. “Here is what I had to do. In the case of looming foreclosure sale date then, I get the owner to go to the courthouse and file a petition with the foreclosure judge. (The owner is the only one allowed to do this. I think the actual legal term is a motion.) The seller will b...
