Short sales-Frequently Asked Questions-Munson Montejano- What is a Short Sale? A Short Sale is the sale of a home when the net proceeds do not fully pay off the existing mortgage loan(s) and the Lender is willing to accept a discounted payoff. Why would my lender accept less than what is owed on my mortgage? Lenders are in business to lend money, not to own real estate. They do not want the expense of the foreclosure process and/or the holding and maintaining of the property if it does not sell at foreclosure. The foreclosure process is very expensive and time consuming, so many lenders will agree to what seems a loss on the mortgage when they will actually save money by not completing the foreclosure and holding the property in their portfolio.   If I do a Short Sale, how much will I ...

 If you love old architectural homes, pools and great locations, this Silver Lake craftmsan pool home may steal your heart! 1639 Golden Gate Ave If you love old homes, it would be hard not to be taken by this Silver Lake craftmsan- talk about great curb appeal.  Interestingly, the interior has elements of both old and new.  From the original built-ins, fireplace and moldings in the living room and dining room to the funky sunroom with view of the yard and the pool out back.

Short Sales-What is a Short Sale?-A short sale can be a good solution for homeowners who need to sell, but owe more on their mortgage than the home is worth. In the past, it was rare for a bank or lender to accept a short sale. Now, however, due to overwhelming changes in the market, banks and lenders have become much more flexible when it comes to approving short sales. Recent changes in many corporate policies and the Obama administration have also greatly improved the chances of getting many short sales approved. To be clear, here is a more technical definition of a short sale: When a seller must sell their home for less than they owe on the property, and the lender that they owe the money to agrees to take less than they originally loaned to the seller, that is a short sale. The "sh...

Silverlake Los Angeles is one of my favorite Los Angeles Neighborhoods. I love it’s hip, trendy and culturally diverse energy and its wide variety of shopping, culinary and social experiences.  Some of my personal favorite dining spots include: “Cliff's Edge”, “Gindergrass”, “Silver Lake Wine”,  “Madame Matisse”(for breakfast), “Dusty's”, “The Desert Rose” in Los Feliz,  “Masa” in Echo Park for great deserts & Chicago style pizza and of course “Two Boots” for their great Louisiana style pizza.  And let’s forget the eclectic night life scene and all of the neighborhood coffee houses such as Intelligentsia for coffee. Part of Silverlake's charm is its somewhat windy and hilly streets and of course its namesake reservoir, Silverlake Reservoir which is composed of two basins, with the lower...

Munson|Montejano Realty-#1 Reason Homes Don't Sale- Price is determined by The real estate market, not by your Realtor®, and not by you. When you insist that your property be priced above the current market value, your property will not sell. When real estate agents agree to take an overpriced listing, it's called "buying the listing". Basically they agree to what YOU believe the value is, just to get your listing. Once they have your listing, they must ask for price reductions over and over again. "Buying The Listing" really doesn't make sense though because they've "bought a listing" that will never sell. This is a "lose-lose" situation for both the Seller and the agent. So wouldn't it make sense to price your home right from the get go? It is a proven fact that you will receive the ...

Munson Montejano-A simple follow up sells a home! My Client Ned who's testimonial you are about to read had originally listed his home with another agent. After 6 months of no offers, Ned decided to list with us as we have the reputation for Selling Homes That Didn't Sell The First Time Listed. After the first week of showings I went back and contacted every agent that used the lock box (another great example of why you should use a lock box). I noticed one agent had accessed the Lock Box several times so I called him and asked him why they didn't submit an offer. He said they were afraid their offer would be rejected because it was lower than what my Seller Ned was asking for. I told him to put something in writing and let's see if we can't pull it together. At the end of the day, beca...
