Diane, I live in that neighborhood and would be willing to answer questions about it if you'd like. My name is Suzanne, and I live up the hill from Carrera Drive in Tam Valley.

Hi Mondamo,
The truth is foreclosure is always an option. You simply walk away from your house. I don't recommend it and cannot give you advice about the legal and financial implications you'd encounter from foreclosing. What I can tell you is that there are options out there that can allow you to short sell, offer the bank the deed in lieu of foreclosure, modify your loan (get a possible principal reduction, reduction interest rate), or sell and bring money to the table to make up the difference in what you owe and what you sell for.
If you want a consultation, I'm happy to meet with you and discuss your options. I can also refer you to two excellent attorneys and a tax professional to have your legal and financial questions answered.
Let me know.

A lack of inventory, may work for your benefit should you decide to sell. Another thing to consider, foreclosures tend to sell at market value in Southern Marin. If they don't it is because the home is in need of major work. I have yet to see a foreclosed home in Mill Valley that sold well below market value. ... more

I do not care such busy roads but If I believe later when I sell this house, I would find a buyer who does not care busy road issue, as easy as the seller found me, then I would go ahead to buy it.

Andy answered:
You need a real estate sales familiar with the local. Marin is a closed and various area. There are so many legal and market concerns that the neighbor counties do not have and each Marin's city has some unique things too. Also, the house you want is a condo. That makes the paperwork more completed.

One of the biggest but also the most interesting risk is you can not find the creditor/lender (rather than the borrower).
