There Was Never A Better Time To Invest In Real Estate

December 6th, 2018 Comments off

The current economic downturn and the fear of an impending recession has driven the normal real estate market, which thrived on speculation and gambling to a virtual standstill. The credit that usually sustained it has disappeared as savings associations have started to massively recall their loans and to bring foreclosures down upon those who have defaulted.

A direct side effect has been the falling of house prices to their lowest point in a very long time as debt weary owners anxious to sell their properties before they are foreclosed are selling their houses for far below their market value. This means that the opportunity to purchase investment properties is here.

There is always a market for reasonably priced good homes even in the eye of a potentially stormy financial climate. Also, housing markets tend to be cyclical and prices will eventually bounce back so their current nadir, as long as it lasts, may be the end opportunity to purchase investment properties at such bargain prices. The amount of property desperately on sale at more than reasonable prices fringes on the impossible.

Investors who are knowledgeable enough in real estate, are aware of market fluxuations and are willing to run the risk which can be as high or low as the investor feels ok with stand to make a killing in the middle and long term.

Whether an investor is looking to invest in a property to flip it immediately or to renovate before selling, this is a fantastic time. As long as the investor is disciplined, evenhanded, methodical and not seeking to make a quick and simple buck there has not been as a good of time to buy valuable real estate on the cheap in many a year. This is no time for people on the fence or unskilled investors who depend upon luck and the gift of gab. For serious businessmen, however, the opportunities are raining down.

Understanding Foreclosure

November 30th, 2018 Comments off

The real estate business is witnessing a downturn; house foreclosure is a common word we hear these days. Most of homeowners are ignorant of what it actually means and end up putting themselves in the worst of situations.

Foreclosure is a legal process instigated by the lending institution to terminate a homeowner’s right to reinstate the mortgaged estate. As a result the lender becomes the authorized owner of the property and can also sell the property to recover the principal money. Foreclosures only happen when homeowners fail to pay the stipulated payments as mentioned in the deed of trust for a period of more than 3 months.

These proceedings normally begin by sending a letter of notice called a notice of default to the homeowner demanding the mortgage payments. There are different types of house foreclosure and their application varies from state to state. However, the two most widely used and common types are by power of sale and by judicial sale.

America has experienced a large increase in foreclosure proceedings, above 79 percent in many cases. How do we put an end to this house foreclosure crisis? What follows are a group of tips that can at least help you individually to make a guide toward foreclosure stop.

First and foremost is communication. You must quickly and clearly communicate with your mortgage lender when you anticipate financial problems. Do not wait to receive a notice of default.

With an increasing number of foreclosure cases, you can easily find professionals to bail you out of such circumstances. The second step therefore is to seek professional help. If you are short of finances it is prudent not to hire them but rather simply ask for advice.

Finally, realize there are other sources of help out there and you are not alone. Ask those that are involved in the process: your lender, professional help to point you toward other helpful institutions or information. Just by doing a search on Google you can find multiple helps and aids in your area so do not give up!

One the most important aspects of avoiding a foreclosure is awareness of your financial situation and the aforementioned timeline. Keep your emotions in check it is very easy to let them overtake you and shroud you in depression and worry, just relax and be hopeful. Use the experts from the mortgage company and those you have sought out for vital support and information and as I’ve said hope for the best!

Did You Receive An Eviction Notice? Don’t Do Anything Until You Read This.

November 22nd, 2018 Comments off

Recently, Monique had the following question about an Eviction Process:

“I have six months not paying my mortgage, and I am worried about it. My question is if the sheriff can take me out with my family anytime now?”

Answer: It will depend in your state. Some states are under a Judicial foreclosure and others under a Non-Judicial foreclosure system. You may want to understand the Foreclosure Process and the Eviction Laws of your state. Look at foreclosurelaw.org

First of all, check the following points that are very common in a FORECLOSURE PROCESS for many states, although every state use to change the names for each one:

1. In Default.- (30 to 90 days late)

2.- NOTICE OF DEFAULT: At 90 days without making a mortgage payment, you will receive from your lender a notification called in many states as Notice of Default. It will say that your lender will send your home for sale if you don?t pay what you owe.

3.- NOTICE OF SALE: Generally at 120 days late on your mortgage, a Notice of Sale will arrive at your home from a lawyer or a trustee telling you what day and what place will be the auction of your home. You still have the option to negotiate your situation.

4.- FORECLOSURE: After receiving the Notice of Sale your home will be sold in a public auction from two to eighteen months later, depending in your state. This entire period any homeowner can legally continue living into the property without making payments.

5.- PERIOD OF REINSTATEMENT: If your house was foreclosed, you still have a chance to find a loan to buy this property again. For this intention, many states allow you to have a Reinstatement Period on which you can also stay making no payments covered by law. NON-JUDICIAL system states dont have this rule.

6.- EVICTION: Following the foreclosure sale, or the end of the reinstatement period, you will be reached by the new title-holder of the property asking you to leave the property. If the property was bought back by the same lender, they may give you some money to leave the property clean and in good condition (this is called Cash for Key). If you don’t leave, after 30 or 45 days they can start an EVICTION PROCESS AT COURT. The Judge will send you an EVICTION NOTICE including the date when you must leave. If you dont leave that day, the sheriff will go to the property to take you out and change the locks. If they lock the doors with your belongings inside, you cannot take them out anymore.

Don’t forget you have legal rights. Homeowners can stay rent free into their home until receiving an official notice from court. See your eviction laws.

NOT EVEN A SHERIFF CAN TAKE ANY HOMEOWNER OUT FROM HIS HOME WITHOUT THIS NOTICE FROM COURT.

There are a lot of states allowing homeowners to stay into the property up 18 months without making payments to their mortgage. You need to check the laws of your state.

YOU WANT TO AVOID FORECLOSURE. Learn how to do it.

The Long Mile Of The Mortgage Modification Business

November 6th, 2018 Comments off

Who is there to Help Those Who are Called to Provide Help? I work at a Foreclosure Defense Law Firm which happens to also engage in the practice of Loan Modifications. I am not an lawyer nor am I here to provide or imply legal advice. The Loan Modification & Foreclosure Defense business has gotten a bad rap due to some rotting apples in the bunch but there are some of us who actually care about what we do.

It’s terrible that myself and others are subjected to the very inaccurate and fictitiously skewed perspectives that is constantly broad casted by the media without conscience to the patriotic men and women who give up valuable time with their own families in an effort to restore stability to families. The Broadcasters as a whole has been quick to tell stories that tell of bad lenders and what were once prominent mortgage lenders now well on their way to becoming cell mates at local and federal correction institutions nationwide.

But what about people like myself, people with a sincere, moral, and ethical motivation to assist their fellow Homeowners in saving their American Dream? It is amazing to see how many of us really do have an impeccable work ethic and are passionate about aiding homeowners in distress.

Not only do we deal with the bad Info of the self serving and often relentless broadcasters but many of us are faced with a tragic and sometimes devastating dilemma, the mortal fact that we are exactly that, we are only human. In my personal experience it has become difficult at times to walk away from my job at the end of the day. Every day at the Law Firm it seems there is a more horrible or unjust case than the last, but still they seem to keep coming, almost as if there were no end in sight. For anyone with a heart or anyone who is truly undaunted in their faith, although it can be spiritually and financially rewarding at times, the Foreclosure & Loan Modification business can become truly draining after prolonged exposure. To the credit of those who possess the inner strength and choose to answer the call of servant leadership, I am writing this to acknowledge the truth behind the old saying “Never judge a man until you walk a mile in his shoes.” and to add that “working a day in his suit might not be a bad idea either”.

During the course of our own personal disasters, there is a lot to be said for the idea of taking a marginal step back, and away from the situation or stepping outside one’s self to reflect for a moment that there are many variables in every equation and sometimes all is not what it seems. This is the moral of the story, to better illustrate I will share something with those who took a moment to look a little further into this article. judging my intentions based on my statements is that I and the majority of our clients could actually be considered one and the same if you were to make a generalization or attempt to categorize me.

mortgage What do I mean by that? What I am making an effort to convey is that sometimes it seems like the worst enemy a borrower can have in the courtroom is not the Lender threatening to take back the house and not even the Law Firm representing them. The worst enemy that many Homeowners face while facing a possible or impending Foreclosure is the enemy they find staring back at them in the mirror each day. That enemy is Homeowners themselves, in my experience it seems to be the most common recurrence among cases I have seen during my time working in the Foreclosure Defense industry. Homeowners and in many cases family members alike are so concerned with getting cheated that in reality they wind up cheating themselves. In conclusion I will provide you with the missing material fact which should re-calibrate even the most skeptical perspectives. In approximately 30 days from today I will be going before a judge in an effort to save my own home from a pending foreclosure which I have fought long and hard to overcome. The truth is that was my original reason for getting involved in the industry, I did it to find a solution for the Foreclosure that has been looming like a dark shadow of unknown demise over my own life. You see I too share all the same concerns and all the same fears as so many other American Homeowners do in this country today. You wouldn’t believe how often people misconstrue the sincere empathy and sense of urgency which I often tend to convey. Many misunderstanding what they sense immediately defaulting to the negative which has been cultivated by our society today. This almost automatic defense system has left many Homeowners and their families almost completely defenseless and unable to protect their homes due to their inability or refusal to act. I also have been fighting to save my last and final property that I own and live in. So in final it is with great sincerity that I offer this humble opinion. Never judge a book by it’s cover because it might end up costing you more than you thought it would ever be.
