Three Ways The Big Banks Could Help The Housing Market And Increase Their Profits At The Same Time

Three Ways The Big Banks Could Help The Housing Market And Increase Their Profits At The Same Time

It seems unlikely that the big banks could help the housing marketing and make a profit at the same time.

#1: Approve more Loan Modifications. Every loan modification is one less home that has to be sold as a distress sale. Distress sales drag down home prices.

In addition, many loan mods are rejected, only to see the lender lose even more money when the home sells. Here is an example. A homeowner offers to pay their lender an amount equal to a $300,000 mortgage.

That means the homeowner would pay the same as someone borrowing $300,000 to buy a home. The lender rejects their loan mod offer and forecloses on the home. It sells for $200,000.

Don’t kid yourself, this happens every single day.

#2: Make short sales easier. Yes, short sales do close. But, many don’t. The ones that don’t are usually sold for less money as a foreclosure. An extreme example is a home that received a $380,000 offer as a short sale.

The lender rejected the short sale. The home was foreclosed upon and sold for $230,000. The reason that lenders usually lose more money on foreclosure compared to short sales.

First, most foreclosures are usually left empty for several months. Mold, mildew, and other things make the home undesirable.

Second, most foreclosures are taking 18 months or more. That is a lot of time that a home can sit empty. In addition, interest, attorney fees, unpaid property taxes and other costs are growing each day.

#3: Handle foreclosures better. We have seen many foreclosed homes sit empty for months and months. In one extreme example, a foreclosed home has been sitting empty for over 3 years.

(The picture above is the front of that home.)

In that time period local housing prices have dropped by 20-30%. Interest and property taxes have accrued over those two years.

Here is how banks could do a better job handling foreclosures.

First, put all foreclosures on the market within a week. There are a lot of hungry, aggressive real estate agents that would love to market these properties.

Put them to work getting the homes sold for top dollar as quickly as possible. The typical 2-3 month wait it not acceptable, especially with all the hard working agents available.

Second, maintain the vacant homes. The home pictured above is wide open. The doors are not locked. Anyone can walk right in and vandalize the place.

I have seen profanities spray painted on the walls of vacant, bank owned homes. Think that affects the sale price?

These are just a few ideas. The next time you hear your local banker tell you how they “care”, ask them about how their bank is handling the recommendations in this blog post.

To us, a banker telling us about how they supposedly “care” just rings of hypocrisy. Thinking about a short sale?

Short sales can drag out giving you time. It takes maybe sometimes a month to sell the house. Then, the short sale negotiations start. They can drag out for 3-6 months. So instead of foreclosure here is what you should do.
Here is a tactic you can use to delay the foreclosure process and even stop a foreclosure sale. Stop Your Foreclosure With A Short Sale  Click here * http://instantbizsites.com/VaughnRice/stop-foreclosure

Vaughn Rice specializes in assistance  with  short sales in Tamp Bay Area of Florida

Vaughn Rice, Quicksilver Real Estate Group is not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. I can offer you loan modification information.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.

The views expressed here are Vaughn’s personal views and do not reflect the views of Quicksilver Real Estate Group.
