Know Your Options Before Choosing Any Course Of Action. Explore Your Options Before They Are Removed. Lenders that have been slow to move towards foreclosure are streamlining and speeding up their foreclosure timelines. I've noticed that many people struggling with their mortgage payments avoid thinking about and addressing their options.  Often, until it is too late and many of their choices are no longer available. You do face some tough choices.  Do you stay in a home you may no longer be able to afford?  Or, do you leave your home in search of an alternative solution?  It is difficult to think about leaving your home but it may be the right option for you. Whatever you do, do not walk away from your home.  The most important thing you can do for your future is to avoid foreclosure a...

Ladera Ranch is divided into distinct communities known as villages.  Each village/community has it's own unique features and a range of housing.  I've provided prospective buyers with a breakdown of each village by tract showing the range of bedrooms and square footage. Oakknoll Village       This is the first of the developed villages in Ladera Ranch. Within Oak Knoll is the Oakknoll Village Club which boasts of a fabulous Clubhouse which can be rented for parties and is often used for Community Activities as well as a pool and water play area. There are many walking trails throughout Oakknoll which lead to the clubhouse as well as to the adjoining neighborhoods.  Condominiums Tract Name Range of Bedrooms Range of Square Feet Sycamore Grove 3-4 1349-1987 The Trails 3 1397-1800 Single...

Successful Ladera Ranch short sale!!! This was an investment property that my client bought 5 years ago. He refinanced the condo and cashed out 2 times prior to short selling the condo. He owed the 1st mortgage $ 530,000  and the 2nd mortgage $ 200,000 Property sold in approx 10 days for 349k Short sale approval for both banks took 7 weeks. The original buyer cancelled escrow and then we received a new offer for 337k. The bank did accept the new offer. That process took approx 7 days for the new approval. 1st lender accepted $ 307,000 2nd lender accepted $ 3,000 The bank paid all past due taxes, hoa fees, escrow, title and commissions. This seller received a full settlement. Interested in short selling your home contact Ann Urias with ReMax Homes and Estates Pre-Foreclosure division. ww...

Wow, hot off the press…..Thanks to The Wall Street Journal for this timely content on “Real Short Sales Of Orange County”…..   Reality has hit home for one of the “Real Housewives of Orange County’s” blond-and-Botoxed stars: Tamra Barney unloaded her Tuscan-style house in a short sale, the Orange County Register reports. The 4,300-square-foot Ladera Ranch showpiece went for $1.12 million, a 30% discount from the original $1.6 million asking price. In a short sale, the lender-in this case, JP Morgan Chase-agrees to a price less than what is owed. The process helps troubled owners avoid a foreclosure. “No one wants to face foreclosure,” agent Marcos Prolo of Berrington Properties is quoted as saying. “This is a good lesson for everyone who’s struggling.” Simon and Tamra Barney-parents of ...

In the midst of the most profound housing downturn most of us will ever experience this is the million dollar (often literally) question.  Over the last three years I have witnessed many clients that have taken extraordinary measures in an attempt to stay in their home.  Given the emotional attachment and considerable investment a home represents this is understandable. Subjecting yourself to massive financial damage in order to remain in a particular home is not a sound decision, though.  Humans have an amazing capacity to remain optimistic.  There is a difference between healthy optimism and irrational optimism though.  I have seen homeowners that owe 250% or more of their homes current market value struggle on admirably and destroy their credit and finances in the process.  Is drain...
