I have several owners that are in your exact situation. Of course, renting with a qualified Property Manager may be your best option. My properties have been renting quickly in the last several weeks, but this situation could change at the end of December. Another option I offer to my owners is to list the property for rent or for sale whichever comes first. I do agree that you must be agressive in pricing this property. Please feel free to email or phone me and I will be happy to run a CMA to advise on what I think your property could rent for quickly, ... more

Good morning Rochester,

I'd have to agree with the previous information from Shanna and Bill. I'm not sure if the circumstances would allow for the former boy friend and his new soon to be wife to qualify to refinance on their own which would take the responsibility off of your girl friend and keep it soley on them. This would also allow her to be removed from the deed and title ... more

Maryanne and I are Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Select Agents. That means we sell a lot of foreclosure properties. Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac outsource the majority of the sales effort of foreclosed homes to REO asset management companies. Although there are agents who work directly for them. Many of these companies pay agents the standard 3% for their involvement in representing a contract with a successful closure. This is 3% to a buyer's agent, and 3% to the agent representing the REO company, and ultimately the mortgage holder. Assignments usually come with a $2,000 guaranteed commission for homes which have smaller sales prices.

If someone told you that's the norm, they're embelishing the truth (to say the least). You may be able to get a foreclosure (aka bank-owned property) for about 30 percent below what the market value of that property would be if it were a traditional resale. But once you factor in the amount of money you'll need to fix the property up to bring it up to par, you may see that 30 percent margin whittle away quickly.

Don't believe blank promises like, "Sure! You can get a foreclosure for 30% less!" Like the saying goes, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

Joy you have to negotiate with both mortgage compoanies seperately if there are 2 different mortgage companies involved, if one company has two loans, then you will want to make sure each is negotiated or included with your negotiations. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
If you choose to complete a deed in lieu of foreclosure, if you have 2 loans with 2 different banks, you can not deed the property to 2 different people or banks. Depending if your state law is different, in many cases teh first mortgage gets the deed in lieu however the second mortgage remains unless they are some how paid off or negotiated with. It is the action of teh foreclosure auction that clears the title of liens so many first mortgage companies wont take a deed in lieu if there is a second mortgage. You would be best served by trying to negotiate, your first step is contact the first mortgage company, ask for the home retention department and let them know your situation, they should be able to guide you and assist you. You shoudl really try a loan modification if you would like to stay or at least a short sale, then a deed in lieu if they will accept it. good luck working things out ... more

Wow, Don's response was great. He's dead on in his answer. Basically the investors already negotiated the short sale and the bank accepted their price, they are simply trying to find someone to take over their deal at a higher price than they negotiated it for. While the legalities are up in the area because we don't know what kind of disclosure they used, I see it happening quite often. My opinion would be to let the investors know it's better to walk with some money, then the bank take the deal back and you don't get any. Remind them of the foreclosure date and hope for the best. Best case, you get it back as an REO and make a lower offer...hahah. ... more

voices member. You can still flip houses in this area. That person just made 110K in just 5 years. That's 22K per year. It goes to show you, that if you wait long enough, someone will buy your house. There was a bigger house, just down the street from this house, that sold recently for 226K, but it was a bank owned home.
