Silicon Valley

For about 2 years now my market (Silicon Valley) has seen a steady increase in sales prices. This is finally causing changes in Banks approach to Short Sales.

I just had my 1st experience where a Bank (BofA) cancelled a previously approved short sale when they realized that the current value of the property is now higher than the amount of the loan.

They have now re-started the Foreclosure process where they can expect to get all of their money back and not have to take a loss after all.

This also gives the owner/borrower the opportunity to minimize the Credit hit by selling the property before the foreclosure completes, and maybe even get a little money back themselves.

I firmly believe that the age of the Short Sale Specialist is coming to it’s end and all those useless seminars will disappear with them.

However, there

for the home owner who is falling behind  if the Banks begin to think it might be smarter to foreclose and lose a lot less than previously, rather than expend time and effort trying to keep the afloat.

The next 6 month will be very interesting.

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this topic to be actually something that I believe I’d by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely huge for me. I am looking forward for your subsequent submit, I will try to get the cling of it!

    Recently, I did not give a great deal of consideration to leaving feedback on weblog Sztachety web page posts and also have placed feedback even a great deal less.
