chandler short sale: Still Under Water in Chandler? Consider a Short Sale. - 02/03/18 06:36 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 or another part of the valley, can still use our help.

chandler short sale: Are you one of the few considering a Short Sale in Chandler? - 12/23/17 06:41 AM
While there are far fewer people these days considering a Short Sale of their home in Chandler, 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.

chandler short sale: Don't Just Give Up - Consider a Short Sale in Chandler - 11/02/17 08:43 AM
While the numbers of Short Sales and REOs in Chandler 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" … (2 comments)

chandler short sale: Why Foreclosure? You Do Have Options To Avoid It In Chandler - 09/26/17 06:34 AM
Although we no longer see the levels of Short Sales that we did a few years ago in Chandler, Notices of Default continue to be issued, meaning that yet another Chandler 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 circumstances may … (0 comments)

chandler short sale: A Good Way To Avoid Foreclosure In Chandler - 08/13/17 01:10 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 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 home than allowing their Chandler home to be sold at auction on the courthouse steps! 
 
Short Sales are "regular resales" with one big difference.

chandler short sale: Needing To Short Sale Your Home In Chandler? - 05/01/17 07:15 AM
While the number of homes "under water" in Chandler is significantly less than just a few years ago, some homeowners who purchased just before the "crash" that started in 2007 are still in a position where they owe more on their home than will be forthcoming from proceeds of a sale of the home.

chandler short sale: Chandler Short Sale Newsflash - 12/20/10 12:56 AM
Chandler Short Sale Newsflash!
Many Chandler homeowners facing foreclosure mistakenly believe that they have "All the Time in the World" to make a decision and take action.

In fact - they will tax you if your property goes to foreclosure after that time!

chandler short sale: Under Water in Chandler? Time is running out... - 12/05/10 03:08 AM
It's been over 3 years since the Chandler market started to tumble, and while it's not still in free-fall, one can tell from the property tax records amongst other resources that housing prices are still declining.
Those under water in Chandler hoping for a miraculous recovery that restores equity and brings them once again above water have, for the most part, grudgingly acknowledged that it's going to take "a while".
In many cases "a while" translates into 15 years or more!
Here's the problem looming on the horizon.
