The FHA buyer was given back up position for the purchase of this … (8 comments)

palo alto foreclosures: Palo Alto Ca Short Sale/REO Watch 11/30/2010 - 11/30/10 03:32 PM
Are you waiting for the rash of short sales and REO properties in Palo Alto so you can snatch a bargain. or just curious about them? Well, not much has changed in the last few months. 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.

palo alto foreclosures: Don't Get Behind on Your Mortgage in Palo Alto! - 07/29/10 10:38 AM
 

Many distressed homeowners have found that if they are unable to make mortgage payments they are frequently not foreclosed on for many many many months.  It appears as if many banks are trying to release foreclosures in a way that will not further depress prices and want to keep these delinquent homeowners in a home so that it is not vacant for long periods of time, which further devalues their investment.   However, this does not seem to be the case for Palo Alto.  While Palo Alto has had very few foreclosures come to the market, the ones that have are … (5 comments)

palo alto foreclosures: The FACTS About Palo Alto Short Sales and Foreclosures - 06/08/10 01:51 PM
There's a lot of chatter on real estate blogs about the steep increase in foreclosures and short sales in Palo Alto.Unfortunately many sites post stats from a company called Realty Trac which tracts everything from a Notice of Default through a listed bank owned property.  Many things can happen before a home with a Notice of Default actually gets to be sold by the bank, but unless you read the fine print carefully it is easy to confuse a house that is behind a few months in payments with an actual bank owned property on the market for sale. Most bank owned homes as … (2 comments)

Confessions of a REO Buyer's Agent
 
One of the great things about being a realtor is that the profession is always changing. Every year I try to figure out what is on the horizon for this world and how I can get involved in what is new.  Despite the relatively few number of REO properties in my market area, they do exist and I have had clients interested in properties that are REO, banked owned and being sold through the multiple listing service.  This has lead me into a world that is sometimes more bizarre than Wonderland and definitely harder … (8 comments)
