menlo park short sale realtor: Menlo Park Short Sales: Get Those HOA Dues Paid - 07/05/11 07:49 AM

Right now it is estimated that nationally 1 in 4 homeowners owes more on their mortgage than their home is worth. You may be be one of those homeowners.  While not everyone who owes more money than their home is worth is going to sell that home, if they do, it will have to go through the short sale process. If you decide that a short sale is the best option for your circumstances be sure and check with a lawyer and/or accountant to get the best legal and tax advice.  You may find yourself unable to make the payments … (0 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Menlo Park Wells Fargo Short Sale Default vs Eminent Default - 05/13/11 10:16 AM
I frequently hear the question "Can I short sell my house if I have not stopped making payments."  The answer to this depends on your lender, the investor on the loan, and the phases of the moon.  However, at least right now, if you have a loan with Wells Fargo then at this moment in time they will look at approving a short sale if you have not stopped making your payments.  Wells Fargo has two different review processes, one for currently defaulted and one for eminent defaults.  So if you are currently making your payments, but you have circumstances which … (0 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Menlo Park Short Sale Approval Today!!!!! - 04/29/11 04:30 PM
Well, it has taken a lot of months, and 4 buyers, but I finally got approval today from Chase for a short sale in the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park.  So far everyone is delighted, and hopefully we will make it through the loan and property contingencies. 
Short sales are sold "As-Is", period. Banks do not allow any credits, repairs, or other consessions for things that are wrong.  That is why I try to get inspections on all my short sale listings before they go on the market. That way there are fewer surprises at the end.
Nothing is a … (2 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Bank Of America Loan for Menlo Park Short Sale Buyer: Is it Really Approved - 04/07/11 03:01 AM
I just had the strangest conversation with a B of A Lender for a Menlo Park Short Sale one of my buyer's is purchasing.  First I must say this is not the broker I normally deal with at Bank of America, but someone who came highly recommended to my buyer.  Two weeks ago this broker told me the buyer was approved and we just needed the appraisal.  Yesterday he tells me the appraisal came in fine.  So I ask the logical question, "Can my client remove his financing contingency or are there still conditions that concern you. The answer I get … (0 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Relocation Expenses From a Menlo Park Short Sale - 12/30/10 04:47 AM
Relocation Expenses From a Menlo Park Short Sale
 
The owners of a home in Menlo Park just got a short sale approval from Aurora.  They asked me the following:  "The approval letter did not say anything about $3000 towards relocation expenses. On their web site they said we could get that money for our relocation. Do you know how we can get it?"
Here is the answer. If this were a HAFA short sale which is a short sale where the government makes the rules, the bank agrees to do certain things when they approve the short sale, including giving … (0 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Menlo Park Short Sale and A Seller's 401 K - 12/15/10 07:20 AM
I have a Menlo Park short sale listing that is in escrow. Chase was the original lender and is now the servicer of the loan.  What that means is that after Chase made the loan they sold it to another investor. It could have been sold to Fannie or Freddie, Wall Street, another bank, or an individual. The important thing to remember is that this investor is The Decider.  The wonderful negotiator at Chase does not get to make the final decision, the investor does.  Now if you have a loan with Chase and have gone onto their web site to … (2 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Menlo Park Ca Distressed Property Update: 12/3/10 - 12/03/10 12:13 PM

 
Menlo Park, Ca. Distressed Property Update
Are you waiting for a distressed property for sale in Menlo Park so you can snatch a bargain, or are just curious about them? Well, there are a few of these types of sales, but not many. Short sales, as in other places, are more common than foreclosures. Most banks are at least giving homeowners the option to try to do a loan modification or short sale before foreclosing. These options do not always work, but they are worth a try.
Active Short Sale Listings:  8 
Pending short sale listings:  14

menlo park short sale realtor: The Sophie's Choice for the Short Sale Seller (My Apologizes to Meryl Streep) - 09/16/10 02:01 AM

Elizabeth Weintraub, Short Sale Guru, wrote an amazing blog about the short sale process from the seller’s perspective.   She discusses the issue that when the buyer walks they do not lose anything and can go on and buy another house, but the seller potentially loses everything. They can try to get another buyer and another stab at selling the home, or they could get foreclosed. Getting fore-closed is getting to be the more likely scenario as many banks are refusing to postpone the foreclosure trustee sale or auction once the date is set.  Since so many sellers wait to initiate a short … (5 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Why Don't Banks Act Rationally in a Short Sale? - 08/26/10 02:38 PM
 
Why do some short sales get approved, and others rejected?  Why do some short sales with loans from the same bank get approved while others don’t?  Why do some short sales with loans by the same bank in the same developments get approved while others are denied? The world of the short sale is changing on a daily basis, and what you know today will be different tomorrow. The rules change, the players change, the documentation changes every minute.  There is, however, one constant: you do not always know whether a short sale will close or not.  Two years ago only about 5% were closing, now … (6 comments)

menlo park short sale realtor: Do You Want to Buy a New Car? - 07/16/10 12:05 PM
OR: What Hurts More, A Short Sale or One Where There's Still Equity But You Have Lost A Lot This morning my husband opened up an envelope with information about his stock options. He looked at me and said, “Do you want to buy a new car?”  My answer was of “Of course not.” He then explained we'd just lost $50,000 in value from his stock options.  My response? “Don’t be so greedy.”   We are both working, our mortgages are almost paid off on the house and rental properties, and the stock options are like dessert, nice but not essential. However, … (1 comments)
