Roseville CA – If you’re facing foreclosure, then you are probably under stress. You don’t know what is going to happen. How long will it take before the bank kicks us out on the street? Will I owe my lender a ton of money? Will I ever get my life back? That’s why we put this site together. You need to know what your options are. So, let’s go thru them here. Option #1: Do nothing and the lender forecloses on the house. Please be aware that in most states the foreclosure process can take a long time. I’ve seen it take some lenders up to a year to foreclose on a house. Some banks have better lawyers and can get a foreclosure done in 3-4 months. But, that is often rare. Option #2: Deed-In-Lieu of Foreclosure. A “Deed-in-Lieu” is where you surrender your home to the lender. This enables the...

Commercial real estate terms:  DSCR: Debt service coverage ratio. Meaning how many times does the income of the property (the commercial real estate only )  produce to pay the mortgage. Most lenders require a min  of 1.25-1.5.  NOI: Net operating income. The total amount of money left over after paying all the liabilities due by the property( the commercial real estate) . Some include the mortgage payment into this equation to really be on the safe side. Fact is this process is done to figure out how much a property can afford to pay in mortgage.  P&L's:  Profits and losses. A detailed record of expenses. Most lenders require 2 yrs and year to date but may allow less especially if it involves the purchase of a distressed asset.    Knowing what things mean and knowing that lenders will a...

Roseville CA – A hardship letter is one of the most important items in a short sale. This is your opportunity to explain why your lender should approve your short sale and let you walk away from the debt. In clear terms, you need to layout exactly why you can no longer afford to keep the property. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. Under no circumstance should you say any of the following. “I don’t want the house anymore.” “It doesn’t make sense to keep the house because it isn’t worth what I owe on the mortgage.” Or, “I can afford the house, but I think paying the mortgage is a bad investment.” Absolutely do not say anything like that. Instead, say the following. “Our income went down and we can no longer afford th...

Roseville CA – People often ask me, “How does a short sale work for the seller?” A short sale is usually very beneficial for the seller. Here is how the process goes. First, the seller will put the home up for sale with an agent. It will usually take 1-3 months for the house to sell. During that time buyers will come with their agents to look at the house. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here. Once a buyer makes an offer and you decide to accept it, then we will begin negotiations with your lender. The good news is that you won’t have people looking at the home anymore. We will gather all of your financial paperwork. That will be submitted to the lender along with a copy of the sales contract and an estimated closing s...

What do you do when a lockbox won't open? Every so often, a Supra lockbox jams, and I get a call. Maybe the last agent crammed the key in sideways. Maybe it's moisture in the air or temperature changes that causes it. I don't know, but I know how to fix it because I've been down that road. The trick is to remove the lockbox by releasing the shackle. Then, holding the lockbox by its shackle, repeatedly smash it on a concrete surface. Trust me, it will unjam. You can't break a lockbox. So, that's where I am headed this morning after the sun rises. Over to my listing in Fair Oaks to bash around a jammed lockbox. It's likely to be good therapy for me. Business has been so hectic lately. You know what else is good therapy? Walking into a new listing that sparkles and is ready for showings. I...

Sprint 4G Coverage in Roseville, CA - New Android Phones (Samsung Epic 4G, Samsung Intercept) We visited the Sprint Store in Roseville, California yesterday and...surprise, surprise...their new Samsung Epic 4G (which was just released for sale on August 31, 2010) was on 4G! Huh??? After reading about the 4G coverage areas online, I thought it was only currently available in Stockton, Modesto (and elsewhere) and "in the works" for San Francisco and San Jose. There was no mention of it coming to the Sacramento area, but there it was...4G coverage! The HTC Evo 4G (pictured above left) has a very large screen and (of course) is a very large phone...with no slide-out keyboard. The Samsung Epic 4G (two of them are pictured above right) has a smaller screen but it's also a smaller phone than t...

It happened again. This time to a different short sale and not in Sacramento. This short sale is in Roseville. High demand neighborhood -- such high demand that I received more than a dozen calls within 24 hours of putting this short sale on the market. Several months later, I'm still receiving phone calls and inquiries. We received short sale approval for an all-cash offer and were headed for closing when a buyer's agent in Roseville called to put me on the alert. Even though this vacant home has been in active short contingent status for a while, agents still show it. I don't know why. But this particular agent noticed the air conditioning unit was missing. That huge component that sits on the side of most homes in the yard. Turns out not only did thieves steal the A/C unit, but they ...

Home Is STILL Listed As "Short Contingent"...But The Bank Foreclosed 26 Days Ago! Do you ever see a home listed as a short sale that's priced significantly under market value that seems too good to be true? I just noticed a listing in Villemont, a gated community in Roseville, CA where I also have a home for sale (not a short sale or bank owned). These "unapproved" short sale listings do nothing but bring the neighborhood comps down under a false pretense. If a home listed as a short sale does NOT have bank approval AND it's listed way under market value AND it already has a notice of trustee sale...it's NOT very likely that the home can be purchased for its asking price. For example, there is a short sale currently listed on the MLS as "active contingent" in the gated community of Vill...

Strategic Eviction By Tenants & Squatters - What Every Landlord, Investor & Property Manager Should Know There have been many discussions about strategic defaults and even some regarding strategic short sales, but it's time to introduce a new one to today's terminology: strategic evictions. If you are a landlord, investor or property manager, you may become the target of a strategic eviction by your tenant or squatter. A strategic eviction is defined as a tenant or squatter's decision to not pay rent in exchange for rent-free living for a certain period of time (until they get evicted by the current landlord or, if the property goes into foreclosure, the investor or the bank.) The type of person who does strategic evictions doesn't care about the consequences of having an eviction recor...

Sellers in Sacramento who are looking for a Sacramento short sale agent should be very careful whom they choose because there are "fake it till you make it" agents out there. These are novices who are erroneously calling themselves a short sale specialist. How do I know this? Well, some attend a 3-hour class down at the Board and slap the title of certified short sale agent on their business cards. A seminar doesn't replace experience. It seems like everybody and their grandmothers are hopping aboard the short sale wagon these days. I also know it because a website entrepreneur contacted me yesterday to offer me an extraordinary opportunity. He asked if I wanted to be listed on a new website, shortsalesguide.com, as one of his two exclusive Sacramento short sale experts. It's so exclusi...
