Hi Emily,

I see that no one has replied to your question.

While have never been foreclosed on, I am a local property manager in Las Vegas NV.

I would not be legally able to provide you with a list of tenants that have been foreclosed on. It would breach our confidentiality agreement with our tenants.

What I can tell you is that I have many family that currently live in one of my personal investment properties and or ones that we manage.

If I can assist you with your story feel free to let me know.

Yes they can.

They can also get a judgment and attach wages even though you're in Canada.

Yes. However, auctions usually require 5% buyer's premium and other fees (reed the small print).
Make sure not to get to excited and not to overpay - many people do, and they later can not get a mortgage due to purchase price being too high...The contract you have during foreclosure or auction is much stricter and protects the seller, so buyer beware!

Hope this helps,

Please contact me. I used to live on Cerchio Basso for 5 years and I am very that neighborhood as well as the entire LLV area.

You can find some great deals in LLV since that area has not fully recovered. You do need to be aware of the multiple HOA fees as well as potential SIDs/LIDs.

Are you looking for a primary home? Second home? Or investment property?

Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss further.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
Probably not. I am not familiar with Nevada Landlord Tenant Law but in New Jersey an owner has the right to rent the home as long as they actually own it. Many people are under the misconception that rental income goes to the bank, it does not, not until the bank actually takes back ownership. Also, the owners may be seeking a mortgage modification, or they may have obtained a modification and the pre foreclosure listing has not been pulled down when it should have been. Don't jump to conclusions. Find out the facts. ... more

Hi JH,

Be careful using appreciation statistics by zip code as the only measure of an area's vitality or lack thereof. One large project that goes bust or boom can have an impact way out of proportion to what is actually happening. For example, in 2012 Lake Las Vegas had several large condo projects that were purchased by bulk sale direct from the lenders. That negatively affected the appreciation statistics for Lake Las Vegas as a whole in 2012.

I think the thing that has hurt Lake Las Vegas the most right from the beginning are the high association fees on top of the SID fees. Many subdivisions have as many as three separate HOA fees. Take, for example, V at Lake Las Vegas. It is a lovely community with spectacular views and great floor plans. But the combined monthly fees are almost $800 per month. Outside of being located in Lake Las Vegas, the only extra amenities are the community club house and pool. You could own a home in Anthem Country Club, and for just $100 more in monthly fees and have a full golf membership, state of the art fitness center, pool, stadium tennis courts, gourmet restaurant, etc.

That being said, we are seeing that as the market recovers, business in Lake Las Vegas is also picking up nicely as well. The project is under new ownership. There are more pedestrians in the village and more special events are being planned. There are currently plans underway to turn the Falls golf course (to the left of Lake Las Vegas Parkway as you are entering) into a public park and the clubhouse into a community center. Celebrity residents like Celine Dion are starting to spend more of their time in Lake Las Vegas and turn their vacation homes into primary residences. Those are indicators that it will come back strong over the next couple of years.

However, if you want alternative suggestions on other areas to purchase, I would need to know more about what you find the most appealing in the Lake Las Vegas lifestyle. Golf? Casinos? Spas? Marina?

If you want to view current Lake Las Vegas listings, including foreclosures and auction properties, go to: Choose "Lake Las Vegas" under the development name drop down, and you can search for homes, town homes or condos and even vacant lots. These listings are updated every morning so you don't spend hours viewing properties that are already under contract or even sold.

Hope this helps!

Hi Phyllis,

Have you thought about purchasing at auction? I have a network of associates within the auction buying core of Las Vegas that have been completing auction sales for more than 15 years (including a statistician!). When you purchase at auction you immediate take title as the new owner and have the ability to either occupy the property or begin generating income.

As with all things unique, there are considerations and nuances. You'll want an experienced team to work with and that's exactly what I have!

Please contact me to discuss at length.

What does the CMA for the property come in at?

Has the property value gone up since you put in your original offer?

Did you accept their counter?

Qualifications for a Short Sale

Before you eagerly climb aboard the short sale bandwagon, consider the following to determine whether you may qualify for a short sale. If you cannot answer yes to all four requirements, you may not qualify for a short sale.
â– The Home's Market Value Has Dropped.
Hard comparable sales must substantiate that the home is worth less than the unpaid balance due the lender. This unpaid balance may include a prepayment penalty.

â– The Mortgage is in or Near Default Status.
It used to be that lenders would not consider a short sale if the payments were current, but that is no longer the case. Realizing that other factors contribute to a potential default, many lenders are eager to head off future problems at the pass.

â– The Seller Has Fallen on Hard Times.
The seller must submit a letter of hardship that explains why the seller can not pay the difference due upon sale, including why the seller has or will stop making the monthly payments.

Short Sale Consequences

A short sale is dependent on a buyer making an offer to purchase. If you do not receive an offer, you will not qualify for a short sale. So even if you meet all the other criteria, it is possible that no one will buy the short sale. It is also dependent on the lender accepting the buyer's offer. If the lender rejects the offer, a short sale will not take place.
â– Tax Consequences
If the lender agrees to the short sale, the lender may possess the right to issue you a 1099 for the shorted difference, due to a provision in the IRS code about debt forgiveness. Many situations are exempt from debt forgiveness, according to the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007.

You should speak to a real estate lawyer and a tax accountant to determine the amount of short sale tax consequences, and whether you can afford to pay those taxes, if any.

â– Blemished Credit Report
While a short sale will not show up on your credit report, the loan status will. For those in default, it's a pre-foreclosure that has been redeemed, which is often reported as Paid in Full for Less Than Agreed. Short sales affect credit ratings. While the damage to your credit report may not seem as significantly bad as a foreclosure to you, creditors may not make the distinction.

Anyone shortselling their home can apply for HAFA but there is no guarantee that you will be approved for HAFA. You can shortsale your property without being approved for HAFA. Since you are not making your mortgage payments, save every dime you can so that you can pay to move and get into a rental.

Always seek legal counsel before attempting to pursue a short sale. A real estate agent cannot give you legal advice.
