Short Sale Hardship Letter Examples - 03/25/10 11:31 PM
Yes, we can help! Short sales are increasingly common as new government acts have passed to find alternatives to foreclosures. You are not alone. The economy is tough in Boulder Colorado and elsewhere; people are losing jobs and it's been a difficult time in real estate as property values have dropped below mortgages owed on homes. This makes it difficult to refinance and when it's hard to pay on that mortgage, you find yourself in a dire situation. Often times if you qualify, a short sale is a better solution that foreclosing. It's not as hurtful to your credit and the (1 comments)
Yes, Another Short Sale Blog. - 03/18/10 10:11 PM
But worth your while, I guarantee you. The Troia Team from Boulder Colorado is writing so much on the subject lately because IT IS the subject lately. Real estate short sales are everywhere and the numerous listings are partially due to the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program; go ahead, call it HAFA. The information is non-ending. You can't write enough about short sales. As we discussed before, having a knowledgeable Realtor is most important. One who can walk you through the process. If I were going through a short sale, here's what I would want to know from my real estate (0 comments)
What You Need To Know About A Short Sale - 03/10/10 11:41 AM
What is it when a seller's lender agrees to accept a lower amount for a property than is owed? Yes...a short sale. This is big real estate news in Boulder Colorado and throughout the country. If the owner of a home has an outstanding loan/lien that is greater than the value of the home and they are in financial distress (late on mortgage payments), then a short sale is an option other than foreclosure.

Lafayette has "Spork" and Boulder has "Mork" - 03/08/10 08:18 PM
"Save Spork " I received an email last week with a link that you were suppose to click ://www.ipetitions.com/petition/savespork/ . Spork , a 10 year old miniature Dachshund was taken to Lafayette's Jasper Animal Hospital to have a bad tooth extracted. Spork is now up on "vicious animal charges" for biting a veterinarian technician. The owner said that dog was just in pain and scared, and so far the family has spent over $6000 on fees involved with the ticket. The courts will be reviewing the case in April 2010 and will decide if the dog should be euthanized or not. (2 comments)
Foreclosure Verses A Short Sale - 03/07/10 05:12 PM
A short sale is when the real estate sale proceeds fall short of the balanced owed on the property's loan. This happens when the borrower is unable to pay their property's mortgage. Instead of penalizing the mortgagor, the lender agrees to sell the property at a moderate loss. This is an advantage to both parties as it allows them to avoid foreclosure, which involves hefty fees for the bank and poorer credit report outcomes for the borrowers. Clients in Boulder ask this all the time and no, this may not release the mortgagor from their deficiency. Neither foreclosure nor a short (2 comments)
What Is An Eco Friendly Renovation: Part Two - 03/03/10 09:51 PM
Why is this information important? For several reasons: Being more conscientious is the way to be. It's the right choice. The eco evolution is not only taking over Boulder but it's blossoming throughout the world. We drive Priuses, shop locally, and remodel with the consideration of the environment. You're not only saving mother earth but yourself as well; indoor contamination causes health problems and the community is becoming more aware of its harmful risks. It's really not that more expensive to do a earth loving remodel and it will positively increase the value of your real estate. Buyers are looking for (1 comments)
It's a Buyer's Market After All - 03/03/10 02:05 PM
The fallowing are all definition of a buyers' market: 1) When the demand for property is less than supply so the advantages shift to the buyer. 2) A market which has more sellers than buyers. Low prices result from this excess of supply over demand. Also soft market or opposite of seller's market. 3) When a buyers' market exists in commodities, the buyer is able to be selective in purchasing contracts, as there are many individuals wishing to sell. Furthermore, these buyers will generally be able to purchase contracts at lower prices than those that were previously prevalent. Click here for (0 comments)
