chandler heights short sale: Still Under Water in Chandler Heights? Consider a Short Sale. - 02/09/18 04:12 AM
Distressed properties - those that are "under water" where more is owed on the property than will be available from the proceeds of a sale of the property - are thankfully far fewer than during the crash during the latter years of the previous decade.
 
Still - some do exist - and Short Sales are still a viable option when faced with a "must sell" scenario of an "under water" property.
 
Currently running at less than 3% of the closed transactions every month in our MLS, homeowners in that 3%, whether in Chandler Heights or another part of the valley, can still use … (2 comments)

chandler heights short sale: Are you one of the few considering a Short Sale in Chandler Heights? - 12/23/17 06:44 AM
While there are far fewer people these days considering a Short Sale of their home in Chandler Heights, there are still some who may have purchased just before the "bust" last decade who may owe significantly more on the home than the proceeds of the sale will bring.
 
What to do?
 
A Short Sale is one such solution.
 
A Short Sale is a "regular resale" with one distinct and significant difference.
 
The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance(s) owed on the loan(s).
 
Whether or not a homeowner meets the other "requirements" of their lender(s) such as a "valid" hardship can only be … (6 comments)

chandler heights short sale: Don't Just Give Up - Consider a Short Sale in Chandler Heights - 11/07/17 06:40 PM
While the numbers of Short Sales and REOs in Chandler Heights are way down from the staggering levels following the market crash about 10 years ago, there are still some properties "under water" and some that have received a Notice of Default, the first step in the process that will result in the Trustee's Sale on the courthouse steps.
 
It's always sad to see people give up and walk away from a home, particularly when alternatives exist which may well be better for them and their lien holders.
 
We've learned that often those who "opt" to let the home go to foreclosure "by default" … (0 comments)

chandler heights short sale: Why Foreclosure? You Do Have Options To Avoid It In Chandler Heights - 09/26/17 08:01 AM
Although we no longer see the levels of Short Sales that we did a few years ago in Chandler Heights,  Notices of Default continue to be issued, meaning that yet another Chandler Heights property is on the path towards foreclosure at auction on the courthouse steps.
 
Suzanne and I wonder why the owners would allow the property to go to foreclosure, rather than investigate alternatives that may be mutually beneficial to themselves and their lenders.
 
Not all properties heading for foreclosure are necessarily "under water" - which theoretically means they could be sold via a "traditional" sale rather than a "short sale" - but … (6 comments)

chandler heights short sale: A Good Way To Avoid Foreclosure In Chandler Heights - 08/13/17 01:38 PM
 
While the Short Sale days of the previous decade are for the most part behind us, the reality is that there are still hundreds of homes "under water" in Arizona.
 
While it's true that not every property facing foreclosure in Chandler Heights is "under water", may of them are, and unfortunately many homeowners still don't understand that the likelihood is they will be far better off doing a Short Sale of their Chandler Heights home than allowing their Chandler Heights home to be sold at auction on the courthouse steps!

There are still hundreds of homes "under water" in Arizona.
 
In other words - the homes are worth less than the mortgage balance(s) - so it's not surprising that many homeowners are looking for solutions to stop foreclosure.
 
One solution to stop foreclosure and mitigate damage to a homeowner's credit is a Short Sale.
 
Short Sales are "regular resales" with one big difference.  
Your lender(s) must agree to accept less than the amount(s) owed on your loan(s).
