sellers: The 3 Stages of Investing in Foreclosures - Do you know what you should pay for foreclosure property? - 11/10/10 03:34 PM
Foreclosure is the proceeding in which a Bank or other Secured Creditor sells or repossesses a real property after the Homeowner has failed to comply with their agreement with the lender.  This agreement is called a mortgage or a deed of trust.  This is most common when a homeowner has defaulted on their payments or obligations to the bank or creditor. Depending on the terms of the agreement, the lender now has the right to call the loan due or sell the property to satisfy the debt owed.
The 3 Stages of Investing in Foreclosures:
There are three basic stages of foreclosure, each with specific investing strategies:
1. Pre-Foreclosure

As if mortgage fraud was not bad enough, this market brings a whole new host of problems.  Real Estate Scam Artists are luring already hurting homeowners into all sorts of murky waters.  Use caution and keep a watchful eye on those claiming they can save a home from foreclosure.  If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is!
Agents, you should beware of the "slick crooks" looking to use you and your services as a middleman to lure Sellers to their trap.  The savvy cons will pose as an "Investor" or "Buyer" and use you to locate their … (2 comments)

sellers: Vision Real Estate, It's our peple that make us different" - 10/12/10 06:09 PM
Kara Machado in her own words:
After a couple-year stint of the most horrible luck, I decided it was time to change career goals.
I’d been a journalist in print media for several years before losing my job in 2008. Since then, I dealt with being sick, losing just about everything, a rape, having friends and family steal from me, moving to another state, being homeless with my family until three days before Christmas, relying on rides from others, having a new son and then almost dying after I had him … the list goes on.
However, being able to stand … (3 comments)

FHA INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS: ELECTRICAL A single main shut-off breaker is required. If more than one breaker must be tripped to disconnect the power, a new service panel is required. The main service must be at least 100 … (2 comments)
