"We were first time buyers and consider ourselves bright people, so we educated ourselves, gathering as much real estate related information from books, news media, friends, family & colleagues. Some people suggested that we might not even need a realtor, that we could do it ourselves. So, after dipping our toes in the water, we quickly realized that alone was not the way to go. We needed someone with expertise in the local real estate market, someone with experience. Basically, we wanted the job done right. A good friend of ours recommended Kim, so we called and the ball got rolling pretty quickly. In the end, Kim found us a wonderful home. We could not have asked for a better realtor. Kim was thoroughly professional, always efficient and really just a pleasure to work with. And most importantly to us, she was always upfront and honest. In the beginning, when we weren't as discerning as we should have been, Kim correctly steered us away from certain homes, even when though those same homes may have resulted in a bigger profit margin for her. It was all the little things that made the difference for us. Like our friend did for us, we would recommend Kim in a heartbeat.”

Short Sales & Foreclosures

Fact: Most houses today are over-leveraged. Homeowners have refinanced and taken out 2nd and 3rd mortgages (up to 125% of their home value). With a turbulent economy combined with high unemployment rates and life’s unexpected turns, record numbers of homeowners are struggling to pay their mortgage payments. Therefore the road to foreclosure and Bankruptcy look like the only options available. But there is still hope with yet another option…a Short Sale.  (email me a list of short sales)
 
What is a Short Sale?
A short sale is when a Lender accepts a discount or less than the amount due on a mortgage to avoid a possible Foreclosure auction or a Bankruptcy.  Instead of buying from a seller, you are actually purchasing the property from the lender at a discount.  The idea here is that you are saving the lender time and money by stopping the legal foreclosure process and taking the property off the lender's hands.

For example:
A homeowner, who is facing foreclosure, has an existing first mortgage of $300,000. An offer is written for $220,000, which is thereby accepted by the lender as full payment for the loan. This is a short sale.

The downside of Short Sales is that banks can be very slow in responding to a buyer's Short Sale offer or never respond at all. If you have patience and are willing to work with the lender, it becomes a win-win situation for all the parties involved.
