Tis the Season for Rocklin Short Sales-5 Reasons to Sell your Short Sale Now With the holidays here, why is it a good time to list your Rocklin short sale? 1. Short Sales realistically take 2 months or more to accept an offer, negotiate a bank approval and close.  You can definitely stay in your home through New Years and beyond. 2. The Rocklin real estate inventory has declined in the last 30 days.  That means less competition for your home.  The holiday season means a better chance at a strong short sale offer. 3. Serious buyers are house hunting during the holidays.  Not only do shoppers have more time to look during the holiday season, but only the most serious Rocklin short sale buyers are the ones looking. 4. Homes show better with holiday decor.  Holiday lights, a wreath on the d...

Sell Your Home Fast in Rocklin CA Today's real estate market is a roller coaster.  It's up, it's down, it's slightly up, there are few buyers, tons of buyers, no buyers because the holidays are here again.  It can be difficult to keep up with the Rocklin real estate market.  However, if you are a home seller in Rocklin and need to sell fast, there are tips that can help you do that: 1. Price it right the first time! I can't stress this point enough.  Pricing it right doesn't mean pricing it low.  A Rocklin real estate agent can help you come up with a great pricing strategy to ensure your home gets a lot of buyer attention.  Aim for a bidding war to get your price.  List your Rocklin home slightly below the last sold comparable.  You only have one chance to get your listing price right!...

Rocklin Short Sales-Is the Buyer's Offer Too Low? It's a short sale, not a fire sale!  Many real estate agents will convince you to accept any short sale offer that comes to you.  Bad idea!  In order to have a good chance at a short sale approval, you must have a short sale offer that is more attractive to the lender than a foreclosure.  What short sale offer should you accept?  Your Rocklin short sale expertshould provide you with the most recent comparables in your neighborhood.  Take the lowest comparables and knock off 5%.  Lets say that the lowest comparable to your Rocklin home sold last month for $300,000.  Do not accept an offer lower than $285,000.  The banks will get their own appraisal and see that your Rocklin home is worth much more.  They will reject your buyers offer and ...

Rocklin CA– Many people think that in order to be eligible for a short sale you must stop paying your lender. That is not true. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. Many lenders will approve a short sale, even if you are current on your payments. They will consider a short sale based on another hardship, such as a job transfer, job loss, or if you foresee that you won’t be able to make the payments in the near future. Should you stop making your payments? I am not a lawyer, and therefore cannot give legal advice. I can tell you my opinion. It all comes down to what is most important to you. If reducing damage to your credit rating is important, then continue paying for as long as possible. Continue paying your lender ...

Rocklin CA – Yesterday I gave you a good example of why you should “escalate” a short sale file. The Stop Foreclosure Institute took a short sale that wasn’t going to be approved, pushed for an approval, and received it. As a result a homeowner avoided foreclosure, a buyer was able to buy the home they wanted, the bank reduced their losses, and we made a little money. There are a few problems you may run into when you attempt to escalate a file. Sometimes the negotiator won’t give you their supervisor’s info. They won’t order a new appraisal or help you out. Most people would be at a dead end. Here is how to get their supervisor’s contact info. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. Call the lender’s short sale 800 num...

Rocklin Real Estate-Has Your Short Sale Been Submitted Properly? Anyone with a real estate license can list Rocklin real estate short sales.  What happens once there is an accepted offer?  Your Rocklin real estate agent must submit your short sale offer to the bank using the bank's offer submission instructions.  Every bank has different submission instructions.  Most agents don't even know where to begin to look for these.  In order to quickly obtain a short sale approval and avoid foreclosure, partner with a Rocklin short sale expert. If your Rocklin real estate agent does not follow the bank's short sale directions, then an over-worked, under-staffed department will not go out of their way to work on your short sale file. There is very little likelihood of this situation working out ...

Rocklin Real Estate-Do I Have Enough Time to Short Sale my Rocklin Home? Are you afraid that you are too far behind on your mortgage payments to qualify for a short sale?  Well, the good news is that these days, the answer should be, "NO!"  Listing your Rocklin home as a short sale will almost always delay your foreclosure sale.  Your Rocklin real estate agent will be able to list your home and call your lender on your behalf, often times delaying the sale.  It's even better if your real estate agent has an offer in hand to submit to the bank.  Most lenders will immediately begin the short sale process and delay your foreclosure with a solid offer. It is critical that your Rocklin real estate agent understands the foreclosure laws. They should be able to show you an estimated time line ...

Rocklin CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute in Rocklin recently received a question from a homeowner facing foreclosure. I’ll call him Dave to protect his identity. (Foreclosure is embarrassing and I don’t want to put his name out there.) Dave asked, “I haven’t made a house payment in a while. I’m just wondering how much longer it will be before I have to move out?” Discover how other sellers successfully did a Rocklin Short Sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. Here is the answer to Dave’s Question. It all depends on what his plans are and how tight he is on money. Most people in foreclosure are at a disadvantage because they don’t how the process works.

Rocklin Short Sales-Has Your Short Sale Agent Stalled? Your Rocklin home is listed as a short sale, an offer is accepted, and your agent submits it to the bank.  What is taking so long to get a short sale approval? There is no question short sales take longer than traditional sales.  However choosing an experienced  Rocklin short sale agent can greatly increase your chances of getting a quick approval. As your property goes through each stage of the short sale process, an inexperienced agent can jeopardize the transaction by not properly communicating with everyone involved. As the homeowner, you may not know that your file has been delayed, and that you again may run out of time to close and avoid foreclosure. Select a Rocklin short sale agent with experience. The right agent knows exa...

Rocklin Short Sales-How to get a Short Sale Approval All real estate agents are not alike!  Short sale negotiation is night and day compared to other types of real estate sales.  I've known agents who list a home as a short sale, get an offer, and then....NOTHING.  The process just stops because they have no idea what to do next! A  Rocklin short sale specialist knows that a complete short sale proposal must be submitted to the bank.  Remember when you were a kid in school and the teacher marked you down for not putting your name on your homework?  It is the same way with Rocklin short sales.  The bank expects a complete package: executed sales contract, estimated HUD, hardship letter, bank statements, tax returns, and financial statement to be handed into them, in one PDF or FAX, the f...
