Hi Kiran,

This should not be a problem as long as we have documentation of the issue. When you ask Macy's to remove the account be sure that you request that the remove it from the report in total and not as a charge off or settlement. That should help your credit score. Your 50% down payment will help with the lenders in making you look like a more favorable borrower. I am a lender here in bellingham, wa and would be happy to answer any question you may have in private. Give me a call or shoot me an email.

If you are underwater on a loan originated before 2008, Bellevue attorney Bob Penfield can negotiate a loan modification or short sale with the bank's legal department based on the idea that their mishandling of securitization of loans has made them unenforceable through foreclosure.

Rob, I wouldn't view this as a way the landlord makes a lot of money. It's actually very nice of them to have a clause that allows a tenant an out by paying two months rent. Absent that clause the tenant would be stuck in the lease until the end. I'd also note that in a bad rental market it might be more than two months before the unit is rented, and it might be rented at a lower rate. ... more

There's a lot to research before jumping into the foreclosure arena. I've just started researching and sometimes the tiny 'delinquent' amount listed on a website may mean a lien that doesn't mean much if the primary mortgage isn't purchased.

It's the equity or potential equity that makes the profit on a foreclosure. The author got to reclaim properties that other people 'thought' they bought for very cheap, when they actually bought secondary liens that ended up being worthless. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Happy researching! ... more

I "grew up" in Renton and a few years ago was very involved with the Greater Renton Chamber of Commerce Community Development Committee. Benson Road (aka 104th in Kent) covers a pretty large territory and it's a very busy road. No one has a crystal ball, however, I do believe that Renton will continue to do well just based on it's location between Seattle and Bellevue. The city has done a great job and I'm proud to be from there. ... more
