massachusetts real estate: Massachusetts Foreclosures - Hold Your Horses Wells Fargo And The Rest - 12/16/11 09:38 AM
This month, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley initiated a lawsuit against 5 major US banks. They have allegedly illegally seized properties, filed fraudulent foreclosure documents, and failed to help struggling borrowers who could have stayed in their homes if those borrowers had been allowed to make lower mortgage payments through a loan modification.
The lawsuit is against Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., JPMorgan Chase & Co, Citigroup Inc., and GMAC, a subsidiary of Ally Financial Inc. It also names MERS, also known as Mortgage Electronic Registration System, Inc. and its parent company MERSCORP as defendants.
Ms. Coakley says … (1 comments)

massachusetts real estate: Water Water Everywhere! And Lots of It To Drink! - 04/16/10 06:27 AM
This has been a rainy year on Cape Cod. A report this month from the Cape Cod Commission says that "... Cape water tables are at record highs." It seems that Cape Cod has an unusual abundance of water.
While flooding that has been seen in other parts of the country has not happened here, high water tables do have an impact on real estate. Engineers use the water table levels to plan future projects and to adjust known factors that affect things like septics, sewers, and foundations. The "extra water" causes re-calculation for annual events, or 50 year or 100 year … (3 comments)

massachusetts real estate: Good Attorneys Make Life Easier - 03/27/10 01:04 AM
I had the pleasure of closing a deal this week. One of the reasons the deal closed on time was the Hyannis attorney that was involved. In this case he was representing the Buyer of a property on Cape Cod.
Alexander T. Senatori, or Alex as I now know him, was thorough, patient, persistent, and very communicative. He made requests for what he needed, and responded when he had received what filled each request. He was persistent without being frustrated when we had to request the same thing many times from the other side of the transaction - even to the … (5 comments)

massachusetts real estate: Yesterday's Worry is Today's Problem - New Tax May Mean Job Loss In MA - 03/26/10 12:50 AM
The Boston Globe made the point yesterday in an article by Jay Fitzgerald, that the medical device industry in MA will be changed by the new health care package. The companies that have been making their devices in MA, may have to move their operations out of the state in order to stay competitively priced.
New taxes that come from the latest vote in Washington, were possible early yesterday, and now are definite after the vote later in the day.  The manufacturing companies may try to pass on the new fees to customers, but that will affect sales. how much affect it … (0 comments)

massachusetts real estate: Quincy Adams Builders Pymouth County MA - 12/22/09 01:45 AM
I recently met Tony Antonellis of Quincy Adams Builders. He and his staff were completing the remodel of a home right on the coast in Marshfield, MA. The crew that Tony has assembled works hard to get the job done right with the correct materials.
One thing I got to see was the way windows need to be installed when you are very close to the water. The window has to be rated for high wind, and there are a few extra procedures for their correct installation. High wind windows are one way to meet the regulations when close to the water, … (1 comments)

massachusetts real estate: Should you get a septic inspection? - 11/03/09 01:40 AM
Should you get a septic inspection? It is extremely important to have a proper, thorough, inspection of the septic system components if you are buying a home with a septic system. Unfortunately for many home buyers, the typical brief septic inspection tells you very little about the real state of the septic system. In my state, the tank is uncovered and viewed, and the scum level and depth is noted. A diagram is drawn indicating the location of the components. Septic inspections for the sale/purchase of a home is a limited visual inspection to determine the condition of the septic field … (0 comments)

massachusetts real estate: MA Court Rules That A Foreclosure May NOT Be A Foreclosure! - 10/16/09 07:13 AM
Massachusetts has joined the list of states with "foreclosure confusion". A judge ruled yesterday that because a bank did not prove it owned a couple of loans before it foreclosed on them, the foreclosures are not valid! Oops - to say the least.
In one of my blogs last year: http://activerain.com/blogsview/525644/More-Foreclosure-stuff-MERS-Mystery I tried to summarize what my research on MERS had shown me. It seems that these two loans were both examples of that kind of "lost paperwork".
This judge's decision raises some questions. 1) If banks now have to prove ownership before they foreclose, will that delay the foreclosure process?  2) If … (0 comments)

massachusetts real estate: Does Your Mortgage Originator Have A "Unique Identifier"? - 10/10/09 05:35 AM
According to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System every mortgage originator is now going to be fingerprinted, registered in a registry, and tracked through their life as an originator. This is evidently intended to monitor the originator and the loans they write.
If you ask your mortgage originator for their "Unique Identifier" and they don't know what you mean, they may not be current on the developments in their industry. The answer should be, "That isn't in effect yet, but I will get it to you when I get one."
Once more, government is making everything we do … (0 comments)

massachusetts real estate: Hollywood East Update? - 09/17/09 01:27 AM
Southeastern New England is waiting for the final words that will tell the world Hollywood East is an actuality. For years the project has been planning, organizing, and promoting the possibility of a new, highly technically relevant movie studio and production facility.
The funding for the project is the last hurdle in the future of the Massachusetts movie industry's effort to encourage movie making and production in the Bay State. Plymouth town residents are watching for developments like a Red Sox fan watches a possible no hitter developing.
This is the month of decision. When the funding comes, Massachusetts will become the place … (1 comments)
