If you have some equity left, start refinancing with another private lender. I am assuming you don't have the money to pay current? Send me an email and I will send you the foreclosure timeline. It takes some time before they can force your home to sale. Urgency is important. I can also provide you with some private lenders, who may be able to help you out.

Why are you interested in quit claim deeds? That is a very risky type of transaction. It is best to avoid quit claim deeds, they can be very hazardous to your pocketbook. I am not sure lenders will provide funding for that type of transaction. ... more

Hi Shawn. It is not as simple as handing some money over to the bank, having a quit claim deed signed., and suddenly you own the property. There are several other steps to the purchase process and a quit claim deed is not involved in this type of transaction. Yes, there are loans programs for people with credit issues. Contact me & I'll refer you to a direct lender. ... more

It depends on how the contract is negotiated. Be sure to ask for prorations to everything is current. Talk with your Realtor on what is the best way to do that. The lender will probably come back and want to negotiate it out but hold firm. Good luck. ... more

Rebecca Chambliss answered:
Hi Grace. It depends. Has the short sale been approved by the bank or not? There are many short sales listed for sale that are not bank approved..when that is the case, the amount listed means nothing. When it has been approved by the bank, the bank is pretty firm on the number they need, however some things can be adjusted...sometimes you can pay less for the property and pay the banks closing costs or the commission can be reduced etc. You should also have a great Realtor working for you to help you purchase any property in Torrance, short sale or not. ... more

Contact the Banks/Lenders directly and ask how to be on thier list for REO. There is an individual responsible for them. You will need to be able to maintain the properties (mowing, electric, water, sewer, trash removal etc...) and the bank should reimburse you. Usually on a monthly basis. ... more

Hi Kristen, Torrance values are holding steady over all. Also the time on market is shorter in Torrance than other areas in the South Bay which means there is more demand. Some areas have more listings and more room for negotiation on price..overall I would say it is a good time to buy in Torrance but better depending on which neighborhood in Torrance. ... more
