foreclosures: Foreclosure Q & A - Who Ends Up Paying The Price? - 02/03/10 01:55 AM
The Q:
The A:Hey there--you've got some excellent thoughts and ideas, and if you wish to act on any of them, my suggestion would be to formulate a business plan and take it to the SBA.   Some of the answers you may get from others in the business:
 there are programs in place to do just what you  are  suggesting--it's called the NSP, or neighborhood stabilization program.  Pasco received a huge endowment from the State and has rehabbed hundreds of homes. the bank's answer to this situation is to try and push through the 'fast track' foreclosure legislation already passed by 37 other … (0 comments)

foreclosures: What's Quick About a Short Sale? - 09/15/09 06:05 AM
I guess we all know the answer to that one by now:  Nothing!  There's nothing "short" about a short sale--ask me, as a person of diminutive height, I can tell you that short sales are nothing about shortness!  So, where from did this term derive, anyway?
Well, put simply, the real estate market is just like any other market--and selling short is market terminology.  When you sell a stock short, you are actually purchasing under the assumption that the future price of the stock will fall.  When you sell a property short, you are asking to purchase a property which has … (5 comments)

foreclosures: Want to Buy a Home in Pinellas County for Less Than $500 Per Month?!? - 01/27/09 09:10 AM
Seriously--with Largo's down-payment assistance program, which gives qualified first-time homebuyers up to $35,000 in down payment assistance, if that were to be applied to one of the foreclosure or short sale homes available RIGHT NOW in Largo (tour a couple below), your mortgage payment would be in the ballpark of under $500, as shown below:

foreclosures: "Anything Selling in ALOHA GARDENS?" she asks... - 12/29/08 07:32 AM
 
A client/friend of mine just asked this today, with impeccable timing, since I just finished compiling foreclosure statistics for Pasco County, Florida, where she lives.
So let's take a look at Aloha Gardens--a lovely, waterfront community of moderately priced homes in Holiday, Florida.  I know the area well, since my own most recent investment property is in the same subdivision.
Here are some stats:
Holiday, Florida has 69 bank-owned properties currently, which is 12% of the bank-owned properties in Pasco County.  (See Florida-FORECLOSURE-FORUM-Whats-Happening-in-Your-County).  16 of these foreclosures are in Aloha Gardens or Tahitian Homes. Holiday has also had 59 homes on … (1 comments)

foreclosures: Who Has Seen the 60 Minutes Video "Where's the Bottom"? - 12/16/08 03:45 AM
Many econimists have been predicting what 60 Minutes is outlining here--basically, that we've only just begun to see the fallout of this mortgage crisis.  Sub-prime mortgages were primarily responsible for the first wave of foreclosures deflating the real estate bubble, and yet to come are the Alt-A and Option Arm defaults only just beginning to have rate resets.
I wonder, though--how many of those Option-Arm and Alt-As have already been refinanced?  I had a couple of Option Arm mortgages myself, on investment properties, and I refinanced last year when rates began to drop.  The statistics referred to in the video, which … (0 comments)
