Buy a Short Sale Home in Rocklin It's a Buyers Real Estate Market and often the best deals, with the most room for negotiating come from short sale listings.  A short sale is when a seller owes more on their home than it's worth and must sell, negotiating with the lender to accept less than the mortgage amount. As a Rocklin short sale buyer, your best chance for a successful short sale starts with hiring a Rocklin short sale expert.  Real estate agents who specialize in short sales know  how to best navigate a short sale on the buyer's behalf. Duties for a Rocklin Short Sale Buyer's Agent: When buyers write an offer on a Rocklin short sale, they typically want some kind of assurance that their offer will be presented, accepted, submitted to the bank, approved by the bank, and closed.  T...

Even Howie Mandel would say “Deal!” to an undervalued home on the market in Rocklin, California. Considering the recent chaos in the housing market and the controversy of sub-prime loans and loan-shark lenders, even desirable cities like Rocklin have their share of foreclosures and short-sale properties. That’s the bad news.Foreclosures and Short SalesThe good news is that buyers willing to take the added risk of dealing with foreclosures and short-sales can get their hands on some real estate treasures. Banks are looking to get as much of their investment back as possible but they also recognize the volume of homes on the market. The Rocklin real estate market is not glutted with homes as many areas are, but there are plenty of excellent properties going for much less than their assess...

Rocklin Short Sales-Avoid Deficiency Judgment What is a deficiency judgment?  A deficiency is the amount of the principle mortgage LESS the amount the bank receives from a short sale.  A deficiency judgment is when the lender tries to collect some or all of the deficiency after the short sale closes.  Attention Rocklin Short Sale Sellers.... you DO NOT want to agree to a short sale if the bank wants to include a deficiency judgment in the short sale approval letter.  The short sale approval letter will say something like this:  The lender or its investors may pursue a deficiency judgment for the difference in the payment received and the total balance due. As a Rocklin short sale agent, I will never advise my short sale sellers to accept a deficiency judgment, EVEN if that means the sho...

Short Sale Rocklin - Short Sales are on the rise in Rocklin and account for the largest percentage of available homes on the market today. There are 226 Short Sales that are unsold out of 449 total homes for sale in Rocklin. I expect these numbers to soar in 2011.  Unfortunately, only 22 Rocklin short sale homes sell every month, on average. That's less than 10% of the available Rocklin short sales listings!  In addition, 123 Short Sales in Rocklin have expired or have been withdrawn in the last 6 months alone, some due to foreclosure. It is very important to choose an experienced Short Sale Agent for your Short Sale in Rocklin. Can the agent provide recent short sale approval letters? Are they negotiating the deals themselves or are they farming out to a third party negotiator?  How of...

How to Choose a Power of Attorney for Your Signing I recently had a Sacramento home purchase deal that was delayed by the lender's requirement for a second appraisal.  As we neared the close of escrow date, I got the following email from the buyers' agent: "Hey, Ed!  Are we going to close this by the 27th?  The buyers are leaving the country for a month-long vacation beginning on the 29th." The lender was not able to get the docs to escrow until the day after the buyers' departed. So, when buyers are not available to sign, is the only option to put the transaction on hold until they are available again?  Not necessarily.  If the buyers will be unavailable for an extended period and lender will permit it, the buyer may be able to have a Power of Attorney (POA) sign for them. The specifi...

West Rocklin Short Sale - Mark Peek recently received a question from Gary. "Why would I do a short sale instead of saving the monthly payments and letting it go into foreclosure?" Gary asked. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. Here is the answer. If you stop paying your mortgage, then you can live in your home rent free for 12-24 months, depending on the state you are located within. I have seen lenders wait a year after the first missed payment just to file for foreclosure. Yes, you can live in your house for free for a long time. However, a short sale has many advantages over a foreclosure. It does less damage to your credit and allows you to buy another home in 2 years versus the 5-7 years after a foreclosure. If you want ...

For Sale By Owner Rocklin CA Are you considering selling your home without a Rocklin real estate agent?  A For Sale By Owner or FSBO may sound like a good idea because of the saved real estate commission, but is it? For Sale By Owner Statistics: * 86% of FSBO's eventually end up listing with a real estate agent. * The 14% of FSBO's who are successful will get earn an average of 12%-15% less for their homes.  That's a lot more than any real estate commission. *75% of real estate lawsuits involve buyers and sellers without representation. * Buyers are hesitant to work with a FSBO seller without their own representation.  * A For Sale By Owner home is much less exposed to the market than comparable homes listed with a Rocklin real estate agent. Don't spend your time trying to sell your Roc...

We decided to beat him to it and release some information on how a large US Bank caused their client to lose an estimated 40k because of their incompetence. Discover how other sellers successfully did a Stanford Ranch Short Sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. This is a house that we drive past every day on my way to work. We noticed that it look abandoned. We looked up the owner to see if they might want to sell the house. That’s when I saw that the home had already been foreclosed. The house was foreclosed on February 4th, 2009. That’s almost a two years ago. Since we didn’t know who the lender was, we forgot about the house. But, it was a great examp...
