Is It Ethical To Walk Away From Your Upside Down Debt After A Short Sale?

Is It Ethical To Walk Away From Your Upside Down Debt After A Short Sale?

Should you walk away or should you stay? Here is how to determine whether or not you should walk away from your home.

Because of the decline in the nationwide housing market, I doubt that your home is worth what you paid for it.

First, determine the current market value of your home. Talk to a realtor. They will give you a market analysis, based on what other homes similar to yours are selling for.

For example, we recently helped a home seller who had paid around $700,000 for his home. We thought the home was worth about $400,000. His mortgage payment was a little over $4500 a month.

When you add in the property taxes and insurance his total monthly payment was around $5,300 a month. Similar homes were renting for  around $2,500 a month.

If you compared rental payments, he was way upside down on his home. We ran the numbers and saw that he was on track to repay $1,697,000 over the life of loan.

Next, let’s look at how much he would save by short selling and renting a similar house for two years. First, he would be saving $2500 a month by renting a similar home.

In addition when he bought a similar home for $400,000 then he would repay around $934,000 over 30 years. $1,697,000 minus $934,000 is $763,000.

That means he would save $763,000 in mortgage payments over the next 30 years. What can you do with $763,000? Would it make retirement easier?

You probably could completely pay for 3-4 kid’s college tuition. Most people could put 6-7 kids thru college with that kind of money.

Or, he could retire a few years early. Enjoy a little bit more of the “Golden Years. It appears that he would be doing better for himself and his family by short selling the house.

The bank was probably bailed out by the American Taxpayers. If he pays taxes, then he helped out with that bailout.

This is why I recommend that you look at all the numbers when you are trying to determine whether or not you should walk away. How much money will you be repaying over the life of the loan? Just Google “amortization calculator” and run the numbers.

Add up how much money you would be paying back with your current home and compare it to how much you would pay if you short sold, rented for two years, and bought another home after that. Thinking about a short sale?

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.

Foreclosure Avoidance Question: My Homeowner’s Insurance Won’t Renew My Policy Because My Loan Is In Foreclosure

Foreclosure Avoidance Question: My Homeowner’s Insurance Won’t Renew My Policy Because My Loan Is In Foreclosure

I recently received a question from Tim. Here is Tim’s Question.

“I have an elderly friend who recently finalized a loan modification through her lender. The mortgage company shows on their website that the mod has been processed and the new terms are in effect.

ImageDiscover how other sellers successfully completed a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here *http://www.isellyourfloridahome.com/#!contact/c15n8

However, since foreclosure proceedings were begun before the loan mod was approved, her homeowner’s insurance holder will not renew her coverage policy, since the local Clerk of Courts records show that the loan is in a foreclosure process.

The mortgage company has not sent the Clerk of Courts notice that the foreclosure case is closed. What can she do to avoid losing her insurance coverage?”

An elderly person almost loses their home to foreclosure and manages to save it at the last minute, only to find out her insurance company wants to kick her to the curb?

Give me a break! That’s pathetic. If I had my insurance with that company, I would fire them immediately!

Here is my suggestion. The first thing your friend should do is to contact the State Insurance Commissioner and the State Attorney General.

Insurance is highly regulated. There are things that insurance companies are allowed to charge more money for and things that they are not allowed to charge more.

I doubt that paying your mortgage late is one of them. More than likely, the insurance company is breaking the insurance regulations of the state.

(This is one of the things we use when negotiating short sales. We have studied to learn all the rules and guidelines. When a lender doesn’t follow a short sale guideline, we will report them to the appropriate agency.)

If that doesn’t work, then I would recommend your friend contact the local media. That is a dastardly thing for the insurance company to do.

I’m sure that the general public would agree as well. I think the media would like the story. Thinking about a short sale?

Short Sales: Isn’t It Time For A Homeowner’s Bill of Rights?

Short Sales: Isn’t It Time For A Homeowner’s Bill of Rights?

The big banks made mistakes and received a bailout. They have the resources to lobby congress and the courts to have laws written to suit them.

But, what has the little guy received? Nothing. So we decided to put together a Homeowner’s Bill of Rights. It’s time we had Washington look at what we want, versus taking care of the big banks.

ImageDiscover how other sellers successfully completed a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here *http://www.isellyourfloridahome.com/#!contact/c15n8

Considering that the big banks have way more rights than the little guy, here is what we think should be done to “level the playing field.”

The Homeowner’s Bill of Rights.

1. Stop The Loan Modification Insanity! The Right to an open and transparent loan modification process.

Any homeowner that can no longer afford their mortgage payment, petitions their lender for a loan modification, and it turned down shall receive a written, coherent response from their lender detailing why they were denied and what they can do to be approved for a loan modification.

2. The right to get an answer to a voicemail or e-mail from a loan mod or short sale negotiator within one business day.

3. The right to obtain the rules and guidelines for the loan modification of short sale from the loan servicer.

Most loans are owned or insured by someone other than the lender the homeowner mails their payment to. However, these front entities still make decisions contrary to the investor or insurer’s guidelines.

As such, the loan servicer should send any and all guidelines regulating the loan modification and short sale process to the homeowner.

4. The right to deal with one person who will make the decision to approve or deny their loan modification or short sale.This person should be available to reach by phone or e-mail.

5. The right to attempt to negotiate a loan modification or short sale without fear.

The homeowners have the right to have all foreclosure proceedings stopped when they are negotiating a loan modification or short sale.

Many lenders use an impending foreclosure sale date to force a higher payment from a homeowners attempting to secure a more affordable payment.

Many times the reason the sale date is so near is because the lender has dragged their feet on negotiating with the homeowner.

Because they are under duress, many homeowners will agree to a payment they cannot afford. Sure the loan mod negotiator at the bank gets a bonus.

But, everyone loses when the homeowner re-defaults and the lender has to process a loan modification all over again.

6. The right to walk away from their upside down mortgage debt.

We often see the lenders hold such a hard line on getting repaid everything they owe that they allow the collateral (the home that is mortgaged) decline in value even more than they ever would have received as repayment from the debtor.

7. Stop the Debt Collector Harassment! The right to tell any and all debt collectors to stop calling and never receive a phone call from then again.

In addition, this would include debt collectors that know the person’s phone number, but will call family members in an attempt to embarrass the debtor.

This is America people! Debtor’s prison was abolished two centuries ago! It’s time to update your activities to the Twenty-First Century!

8. The right to have their short sale handled competently. The short sale process with most lenders is seriously flawed.

Because of this, we see short sale offers for 385k rejected, only to see the home sell for 230k after foreclosure. This hurts homeowners, the banks, the housing market, and the American Economy.

Is it fair to pursue a homeowner for a larger deficiency when it was the lender’s decision to reject the short sale that caused the deficiency to be larger? I don’t think so.

Because of that, the homeowner has the right to have their short sale handled as detailed below.

A. All deficiencies are forgiven. We often see the lenders hold such a hard line on getting repaid everything they owe that they allow the collateral (the home that is mortgaged) decline in value even more than they ever would have received as repayment from the debtor.

Making the infamous difficult short sale process simpler and more attractive to buyers would net the banks way more money than will ever be recouped chasing down sellers.

B. To have their short sale handled to process everything as smoothly and quickly as possible so the home sells for top dollar and the loan owner receives the most money possible.

C. The right to work with a competent, experienced agent who specializes in short sales.

D. The homeowner is given a written list of investors, mortgage insurance companies, etc. (with contact information) that need to be satisfied for the Short Sale to be approved.

E. An appraisal is ordered and then the home is listed for sale at that price.The price is dropped by 5% a month, or whatever that lender’s standard price drop is for Bank Owned Properties.

F. Home buyers get an answer to their offer within 2 business days.

G. An appraisal is ordered and then the home is listed for sale at that price.

H. Allow short sale buyers 45-60 days to get their loan approved. Many lenders that have loan servicing departments that handle short sales.

These departments demand that a home buyer close the transaction within 30 days of short sale approval. However, these same companies have lending sides that cannot close a loan in less than 45-60 days.

So essentially, they are demanding that other banks close loans in 30 days, when they themselves cannot do the same thing. I would call that serious hypocrisy! Don’t you agree? Thinking about a short sale?

How Soon Can I Buy Another Home After A Short Sale?


How Soon Can I Buy Another Home After A Short Sale?

I receive this question a lot. “I am upside down and need to move. I would like to buy another home. Can I do that?” they asked me.

Today they can. FHA (the Federal Housing Administration) has a new program that enables you to short sale your existing home and buy a new home right afterwards.

ImageDiscover how other sellers successfully completed a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here *http://www.isellyourfloridahome.com/#!contact/c15n8

The home you purchase would have to meet FHA’s standard lending guidelines. FHA is a great mortgage program.

In fact, more people buying a home in today’s market are getting an FHA loan.

Here is what you would need to do to participate in the program:

1. Determine if you qualify to participate in the program. We have been told that you will need the following.

(Guidelines can change at any time, so make sure you check them with a Mortgage Professional familiar with the program.)

A. A 640 FICO credit score or better.

B. You must be current on all installment payments and your mortgage.

C. No bankruptcy or foreclosure on your credit in the last 7 years.

D. The home you are purchasing must be inferior to the one you are selling. I don’t know the exact guidelines, but I think it means it is a smaller home, or it has less bedrooms or a lower price.

E. You will need the 3.5% down payment for the new purchase.

2. Continue making your mortgage payments each month.

3. Talk to a Mortgage Professional and fill out FHA’s Short Sale and Buy Application.

4. Get pre-approved for your next home loan.

5. Put your home on the market with a licensed short sale realtor.

6. Once the short sale is approved, then you can start looking at other homes.

7. Close on selling your home and on purchasing the new property.

All in all it seems pretty simple. The key is to make sure they you are approved for the loan on the next home before you sell your existing home. Thinking about a short sale?

Short Sales: Can I Short Sale If I Don’t Have A Normal Hardship?

Short Sales: Can I Short Sale If I Don’t Have A Normal Hardship?

I recently received a question from Chad. Here is Chad’s Question.

“I own a condo that I purchased in 2007, pre-construction for $375,000. My mortgage balance is $337,000.

ImageDiscover how other sellers successfully completed a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here *http://www.isellyourfloridahome.com/#!contact/c15n8

I have been trying to sell my unit for upwards of 2 years with no success. I have been unable to refinance because my unit is worth much less than the balance on my mortgage.

I have been denied a loan modification. I must move by this summer and do not want to make a penny on the sale. I just want to be rid of this property.

I have been advised that I would not get approved for a short sale because I do not have a financial hardship. However, I am not sure this is correct. I am seeking advice as to what my options are.” said Chad.

Here was our answer. If you are moving for a job transfer, then you have a legitimate hardship. I do know this.

If you move in 6 months and stop making the payments, then something will need to be done. The bank will either approve a short sale or foreclose on your property.

You could try to rent the unit out and write a check every month to cover the payments. But, then you would be limping along for years until the market improved and you can sell.

But, what if things get worse? What if a tenant trashes your condo and you can’t afford the repair bill? No one wants to rent a trashed condo.

You would have a hard time covering the payments then and even risk a foreclosure. I would start the short sale process today. There is a good chance that your lender would approve a short sale today.

If not, then you could convince them to approve it later, after you have moved. Some short sale negotiators are easy to work with and will approve the short sale.

Others might play hardball and want a promissory note from you. It’s all negotiations. The sooner you start the negotiations, the sooner you can move on with your life. Thinking about a short sale?

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.

Does My Short Sale Have To Be Approved Before I Put It Up For Sale?

Does My Short Sale Have To Be Approved Before I Put It Up For Sale?

I often get asked if a short sale is even worth the effort. “Do I need to have my short sale “Approved” by my lender before I put my home on the market?” one seller asked us.

“When I called my lender they wouldn’t talk to me about my short sale. I am concerned that they might do that when I finally sell the property and I’ll never get the short sale approved.”

Here was my answer. Most lenders will not talk to you about a short sale until you have several things in place.

They want a solid offer from a pre-qualified home buyer along with all the necessary financial documents. Why do they do this?

Because they only want to process short sales that will sell and close. Now, I think it’s a stupid way to do things. Instead of refusing to negotiate short sales until there is an offer on the table, they should instead pre-approve short sales.

It would make the process so much easier. A home could be placed on the market at a set price.

Buyers would be more interested in the property because they know they can get an answer in 2-3 days versus 2-3 months.

I have brought this up with Matt Vernon, the Vice President of Bank of America’s Short Sale Department. He knows there is stuff to improve.

But, it’s hard to change the course of a huge company with so many different parties involved. Despite all this, experienced short sale agents are getting short sales approved every day.

The Short Sale Process is getting better and easier to navigate. More and more lenders are moving towards “Approved” Short Sales.

You just need to find a good short sale realtor that can navigate their way thru the crazy short sale process. Thinking about a short sale?

How Much Do You Charge For A Short Sale in?

How Much Do You Charge For A Short Sale in?

I recently received an email with a question from Tracy. Here is Tracy’s Question.

ImageDiscover how other sellers successfully completed a short sale and request a free consultation by clicking here *http://www.isellyourfloridahome.com/#!contact/c15n8

“I have not been late on any payments but my income will be changing dramatically towards the end of the summer. What is your exact service and what are the fees involved? I do not have any cash in savings and pretty much live paycheck to paycheck. Tracy.”

Here is the answer to Tracy’s Question: A Short Sale doesn’t cost the homeowner any money. All of the costs are paid for by the homeowner’s lender.

Now, I’m sure you are asking, “The bank is losing money on the short sale. They wouldn’t want to have to pay to sell the property.”

Many people also think this. After all, it makes sense logically. But, it’s actually not the case.

Banks have been lending money for centuries. They have learned from past experience that a short sale is a good way to cut their losses.

In fact, a recent study by the Boston Consulting Group actually showed that a short sale reduced a lender’s losses by 20%, compared to a foreclosure.

After a lender forecloses on a property they put it up for sale. They have to hire and pay a real estate agent and all the other related costs.

Why not pay those costs on a short sale and cut their losses by 20%? It’s a good business decision. And that’s why a short sale doesn’t cost the homeowner anything.

Your lender covers all the cost including the real estate agent, title fees, and other closing costs. Thinking about a short sale?
