kimberlee frank: Parents who co-sign take a stand on Short Sales - 08/13/12 12:19 PM
Parents who co-sign on a mortgage need to take a stand on short sales.  Many parents have co-signed for their son or daughter helping them purchase their dream home.  However, the co-signer never intended to become liable on the mortgage as their son/daughter promised to make the payments on the mortgage.  With the change in our economy, many co-signers are left holding the bag or should I say the debt from a mortgage on a home that is upside down.  Everyone has mixed feelings as to how to proceed in this situation.  Co-signers never intended to be completely liable on the … (3 comments)

Walt from Seniors and Life Solutions Sell Fast Realty, Kimberlee Frank, Taylor Frank and Robert O'Hare share a wonderful story of how they had fun.  The Church on the Living Edge decided to reach out to the Orlando Community in July during compassion week.  I, Kimberlee Frank of Sell Fast Realty was excited as I always wanted to show my son how to give back but never did it.     I asked my 15 year old son, Taylor Frank and his friend 15 year old, Robert O’Hare if they wanted to help.  They said sure.  We met with Walt from Senior and … (0 comments)

kimberlee frank: Road Rage on US-417 - Mentorship to get you unblocked - 12/07/11 02:10 PM
Road Rage on US-417 in Florida - Do you have a Road Block?
I was driving Saturday night on US-417 minding my own business heading home from a real estate seminar.  There were hardly any cars on the road.  I watched a car come up behind me and stay behind me for a couple of minutes.  He didn’t flash his lights like most inpatient people do, he decided to go around me and then get in front of me and slow down.  He didn’t cut me off or anything he just got in front of me.  Since I had my car … (0 comments)

kimberlee frank: What is the difference of a “Full Satisfaction of Loan” versus a “Lien Release Only” Short Sale? - 11/13/11 04:15 AM
Full Satisfaction of Loan versus a Lien Release Only
Understanding the outcome on a short sale is vital not only to the Seller but to the Realtor.  Below I explain the different types of short sale approvals.
There are two different types of Short Sale Approvals:
Full Satisfaction of Loan Lien Release Only
A Full Satisfaction of Loan means that you will not owe any more money on this loan after your buyer pays the short sale amount of $90,000.  It also means that the lender will not pursue you for a deficiency judgment on the remaining $60,000.  A Lien … (1 comments)

kimberlee frank: Deficiency Judgment or a 1099-C which should a Seller receive? - 11/13/11 04:10 AM
What is a Deficiency Judgment?
A Deficiency Judgment is the difference in what the property was sold for and what you owed on the mortgage, including interest and attorney fees.  Your lender has the right to come back after you for 25 years to collect on the difference.  They have 5 years to file a deficiency judgment and 20 years to collect from you…for a total of 25 years.
 
Many sellers will just give up and walk away from their house.  The most famous speech from Winston Churchill was “NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER GIVE … (1 comments)

kimberlee frank: Does a Seller have to pay closings costs and Realtor commissions on a Short Sale? - 11/08/11 04:52 AM
Does a Seller have to pay closings costs and Realtor commissions on a Short Sale?
NO, you don't have to pay closings costs and realtor commissions on a short sale!  On a short sale, even though you are the seller, the lender allows certain fees to be paid out at closing that normally the seller would have to pay, i.e. title work, transfer tax, Realtor commissions, etc.   Sometimes the Realtor fees are reduced in order to sell the property on behalf of the seller.  That means that our service is absolutely FREE to you, as your lender(s) allows the Realtor(s) to … (0 comments)

kimberlee frank: HAFA Short Sale - Can I get $3,000 from HAFA to move? - 11/08/11 04:42 AM
Will my Lender pay me any money to move with the HAFA program? The Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative (HAFA) program does allow a relocation fee of up to $3,000 paid to the homeowner if they claim their home as a homestead exemption.  The HAFA program does not apply to investment properties.  The deadline for the HAFA program is DECEMBER 31, 2012.  If you are considering a short sale and you would like to be paid $3,000 through the HAFA program to relocate, please call us immediately as it takes time to do the short sale.  There are other requirements such as … (0 comments)

kimberlee frank: How will my credit be affected on a Short Sale, is there any advice you can give me? - 11/08/11 04:33 AM
How will my credit be affected on a Short Sale, is there any advice you can give me? 
Disclaimer:  I am not a credit expert and I am responding to you based only on my understanding of the affects on credit.  Making late payments on any debt will lower your credit score based on the amount of days you are late on your payment.  It is my understanding that on average, a short sale on your credit report is a negative 150 FICO points versus a foreclosure on your credit report is a negative 250 FICO points.
Please note that … (2 comments)

How is Sell Fast Realty different from other Realtors? I understand my sellers’ needs because I, too, have been down the foreclosure road.  I can tell you life does get better when you decide to make a decision.  Making a decision that is best for you and your family is a huge relief!!  I know how you feel when you start receiving all of the telephone calls, the amount of worry and stress that you and your family have to endure during these times.  So, if you want to know from someone who has been there, done that, and has the … (0 comments)

kimberlee frank: How do I qualify for a Short Sale...here's how! - 11/06/11 01:45 PM
How do I qualify for a Short Sale? To submit a short sale request, you need to have a hardship, a buyer, and the lenders require that you have the house listed with a Realtor.   Your offer from your buyer, along with your financial information, is submitted to your lender for their review to determine if you qualify for a short sale.  There are different types of short sale programs which I will discuss in other paragraphs in this Special Report.  Many homeowners have been informed by their lender that they should sell their property on a short sale.  However, many … (2 comments)

kimberlee frank: Stress of foreclosure: I can’t take it anymore…what should I do? - 11/06/11 01:36 PM
I can’t take the stress of Foreclosure anymore…what should I do? Become educated and make a decision.  I remember waking up in the mornings after a sleepless night, praying that this was all just a bad dream.  I fought with everyone from my husband, kids, mother and even the dogs.  I was so sick over everything, I even lost a kidney.  I realized the fact that I was throwing good money after bad.  The stress of foreclosure will do everything it can to take you out!  What I found to be the most helpful was that I made a decision and … (2 comments)

kimberlee frank: Should I save my home and fight the foreclosure? - 11/05/11 04:44 PM
Should I save my home and fight the foreclosure? You may be struggling with this question.  Should I try and save my house?  If you can afford to stay in your house at a comfortable payment, then I can refer you to a non-profit organization that will help you fight the foreclosure.  Your monthly payment will be paid directly to that organization and they will provide you with your own attorney.  There is no guarantee that they will be able to help you keep your house.  Sometimes, sellers will end up doing a short sale anyway.  However, there are several things … (5 comments)

kimberlee frank: Bankruptcy vs Short Sale or Foreclosure - 11/05/11 04:30 PM
Should I file Bankruptcy? There are different types of bankruptcies.  There is a Chapter 7 that will discharge you from all your debts; qualification will depend on how much is owed and your income.  Then there is a Chapter 13 which is a 3 to 5 year re-payment plan for your debts.
A bankruptcy prior to a short sale does not help you with getting a fresh start because the lender will still have to do the full foreclosure process to get title back to the house.  A bankruptcy will eliminate the debt that is owed. However, many people want a … (2 comments)

kimberlee frank: Foreclosure mistakes by banks allowed these Sellers to win with a short sale - 09/20/11 06:55 AM
 
Have you heard that the Banks make foreclosure mistakes when they foreclose on Sellers?  Well, they do!  On Monday, September 19, 2011, Sell Fast Realty assisted Sellers who thought that the bank had taken their property to foreclosure and they didn't own it any more by selling the property on a short sale.  Let me tell you what happened.
The Sellers had their property for sale with Sell Fast Realty for over a year during the time when 60 minutes announced all the Banks foreclosure mistakes.  We had a buyer and were working the short sale, however; the bank did … (2 comments)

Many investors are asking me Kimberlee what should I do right now? Invest in more property, wait, try and sell what I have?

Right now is a great time to buy and start your investment strategies with fresh and new ideas.

kimberlee frank: Riding The Waves of Foreclosures - 12/04/08 07:05 AM
Riding the Waves of Foreclosure
 I have been a full time investor since 1998. My past experience was a legal secretary for 18 years working for Attorneys, Builder and Real Estate Broker.  We were working pay check to pay check.   I started investing in real estate in Michigan and then rode the foreclosure wave to Florida. A smart investor needs to shift with the tide to be successful.   I purchased real estate courses and attended as many educational boot camps as possible.    I am a licensed Real Estate Broker.  In 2000, I created the course "I'm a Real Estate Junkie" because … (0 comments)
