Request a FREE Foreclosure List! Welcome to our La Habra Foreclosure Report. Today, 09/14/2010, there are a total of 27 Foreclosures amongst the currently active La Habra Single Family Homes and Condos - 15 La Habra bank owned Homes and 12 La Habra bank owned Condos. With regards to La Habra Homes, the highest percentage of Foreclosures can be found within the price range between $0 to $200,000 with 33%. However, this would give a false idea of the real distribution as the 33% is only 1 property. The more accurate scenario is to look at the actual amount of properties that are bank owned, rather than looking at the percentage: the largest amount of La Habra Foreclosures is in the price range between $300,000 and $400,000 with 10 properties. With regards to La Habra Condos, the highest p...

Rental properties of one to four units are both a good choice for many of today's investors, and a good area of specialization for many of today's real estate professionals. Why rental properties? For one thing, a growing number of people will seek out new places to live, and an increasingly attractive choice will be renting. In fact, vacancy rates have already begun to ease. A recent study cited by The Wall Street Journal reported that apartment rents rose in the first quarter of 2010 after five straight quarters of declines. In the past, investors bought rental properties based on the reasonable expectation that their market value would rise along with rents, and that they could take advantage of tax benefitsl. In addition to tax advantages, investors have been able to realize a posit...

Like many of us in real estate, the term buyers are liars was a mantra in 2009. Over the last 6 weeks we have seen a change of perception of a buyer. We have met and represented many buyers since the new year and have found them to be more realistic and comitted to buying a home. I hope this trend continues for the rest of the year. Let me know how buyers are thinking in your areas?

Two hunters (Realtors from California) got a pilot to fly them to the Canadian wilderness to hunt moose.  They manage to get two big bull moose.  As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could only take the hunters, their gear and one moose.  The two hunters objected strongly.  "Last year we shot two.  The pilot let us take both and he had the same plane as yours."  Reluctantly, the pilot (who happened to be an ex-mortgage banker and not wanting to be outdone by another pilot) gave in and everything was loaded.  However, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down crashing in the woods.  Somehow, surrounded by the moose, clothing and sleeping bags, George and Mike survived the crash.  After climbing out of the wreckage, George as...

FHA Short Sales and Short Payoffs Borrowers that were in default at the time of the short sale (or pre-foreclosure sale) of their previously owned primary residence are not eligible for a new FHA loan for three years from the date of the pre-foreclosure sale.   This means, that buyers wanting to purchase a similar or superior property within a reasonable commuting distance will not be able to obtain a new FHA loan.Borrowers are considered eligible for a new FHA loan if they were current on their mortgage and other installment debts at the time of the short sale of their previously owned property, and the proceeds from the short sale serve as payment in full.
