Some short sales are too good to be true and here is why

Maybe you have seen a real estate listing that has a price that is too good to be true? More than likely, that property is listed as a short sale. Short sales are those homes for sale where the seller wants the bank to accept less than what they owe, so they are able to sell the home. When you buy a home, you agreed on a price. The bank sent out their appraiser and that appraiser verified a price. The appraiser further established that the value you agreed to pay was accurate and at Fair Market Value – FMV. Sometimes “life happens”. People get struck down with disease, job loss, divorce, life changes etc. It can happen that the circumstances of life start a chain of events that would cause a person not to be able to make their mortgage payments. Most of the people in those circumstances attempt a loan modification with the bank to get some relief. However, most of the time those “loan modifications” are hard to get so the next step would be a short sale. Recently in the Santa Clarita Valley we had a listing being offered for sale by an out of area agent at over $200,000 less than fair market value. Of course the listing, online and within the buyer’s I’m working with, received a huge amount of attention. Getting this home at this price would be like finding the bag of money on the train. Here are the Red Flags that exist on this one: Drive by only – no viewings of the property allowed. Owner Occupied – Not tenant...

Only 12 Active Santa Clarita Foreclosure listings for sale 2015.147

You can say that the Santa Clarita real estate market is returning to normalcy. This is because we are down to about 2% of the total active market being REO in nature. Once we get down to about 1% of the active listings being distressed in nature – we will have arrived. Today is the 147th episode of our Santa Clarita real estate radio show. On Wednesdays we call our show the Foreclosure and Hump day update. We get into the Distressed real estate and show you the ways in which to do the BETTER than average searches online and within our Paris911 Websites. Here are all the “active” foreclosures and distressed real estate listings in the SCV Cities that are currently Foreclosures. No Short Sales – Pre foreclosures – Just those homes that have actually been foreclosed on, have a real estate agent assigned and have been placed on the “official” multiple listing service(MLS) and are being offered to the general home buying public. During my preparation for our real estate radio show this AM – we had 12 – there is a new one that hit which is bank owned and was placed onto the market during the past couple of hours. BTW – this Foreclosure and Active Bank owned map will update every 7 to 10 minutes and gathers it’s intel directly from the Multiple Listing Service for Southern California. That is the difference between a “true foreclosure” search engine and those that are real estate syndication websites in nature. We get our listings, the only actual and verifiable, real estate listings directly from the Multiple...

Foreclosure and Bank Owned update for Santa Clarita 2015-140

While this is not only a Foreclosure, Bank Owned and Real Estate Owned Broadcast – this is more of a complete real estate update and radio show broadcast. We also covered some of the intel related to the Fact Buyers of real estate cancel escrow. We started our Once Upon a Time in Real Estate segment at 10:10 – see what we think of Buyers that cancel escrow and our philosophy. I was also very happy with the Santa Clarita home inspector and the way in which he handled the buyer’s cancellation “mid stream” after about 20 minutes of inspection time. Check that segment at show mark at 12:28. During the show today we talked about the Santa Clarita Foreclosure market, which is not much of a market. We are returning the 1% healthy market levels that we had back prior to the last real estate cycle crash. Out of the Santa Clarita Valley Cities – Total, including the City of Valencia, Stevenson Ranch, Castaic, Newhall, Canyon Country and Saugus – We have a total of 306 distressed homes that are in some kind of distressed process. These include 108 pre foreclosures, that are on the market for sale. Also, we have 67 real estate listings that are headed for the auction block. Of the listings that are currently on the “radar” we see that 77 are bank owned presently and that could be something that a buyer can possibly procure. The resource that I have been using to get the intel related to the current foreclosure market is under our Foreclosure Tab at our Main Santa Clarita real...

Is the phrase ethical foreclosure realtor an oxymoron

I suppose it depends on who you are asking. Those who were slighted in the last Foreclosure and Real Estate Owned cycle, would probably say “yes it is”. Others, those that had gotten what they wanted, would probably say no. However, those who got what they wanted, did so by jumping through a lot of hoops, and probably encountering the “not so ethical” foreclosure realtor. It was a time when the big banks were hiring the local Real Estate agents to sell their distressed properties to the buyers that would buy them. We had seen many a property that had been “torn up”, almost beyond repair, by the property owner as they were being forced through an eviction. One of the paramount questions that kept coming up was, “Why can’t the bank sell me back the home at the discounted price where they are going to market it for?” That question has to do with the “rules and regulations” within the lending world. But in actuality, I suppose they could have if the rules were to have been broken, or at least bent. The fact of the matter is it did not happen. The Banks had their ways and regulations that followed. As did the realtors they hired to sell their properties that were categorized as REO – Real Estate Owned. We had many a person want to use us specifically due to us being the listing agents. They thought there was an edge in doing so. In an imperfect world, there may have been. But due to the corruption that had been felt by the banks, they required...

Real Estate in Santa Clarita YouTube Video update

Some of the “knee jerk” things you will find published online have to do with “great deal”, “Too good to be true real estate prices”, and “Hurry before they are all gone…” Those types of ads are the ways of “old”. They are not fitting in today’s advertising and marketing world because the consumer is more educated than ever before. Today, you don’t have to ask anyone or go to a library or reference those 60 year old encyclopedias that Mom and Dad bought from the door to door salesman. You can ask google. The Mobile Market has more devices than “desktop computers” in play today. Those people that have them and have access to Google on the internet can ask a question without having to do the legendary “library” homework. Remember when you had to get home to see if someone had called? I remember a time even before that – my kids don’t believe it That getting up to change the channel thing is a total mystery to them. Reach out to me so I may take great care of you and please let me know when you are ready for our assistance with your real estate needs. I’m Connor with HONOR and I’m glad to be of service. You will find my phone number at the top of this page along side of my email...

The Daily Real Estate Radio show presents our Foreclosure Update 2015-112

Good day everyone, I’m Connor MacIvor with REMAX of Santa Clarita’s Paris911 Team of Local Realtors. Today is our Wednesday Hump Day Foreclosure Broadcast. In case you were wondering we have a seven day a week format for our real estate radio shows. Today – Wednesday, we get into the Foreclosure and Bank Owned intel reports that we generate from our Foreclosure Page at Paris911.com When venturing around the world wide web looking for distressed properties and homes, you will come across a lot of bad intel related to them. You will also find that the internet is not so “transparent” when it comes to verifying information. So hence our Real Estate Radio Show. Today, as is typical, we spoke about the current real estate inventory in the SCV cities. We see that during the past seven days we have hit a high mark for new real estate listings. If you want to view all of the new real estate listings that are still with us that have been added during the past seven days type in the word:  new – into the macBoX where you find it.  Resource: MacBoX at the Paris911 Home Page Within the local SCV real estate market we are returning to “pre fall” foreclosure and bank owned levels. We are getting to very close to 1% active foreclosures on the market for sale in Santa Clarita Valley cities. Today we ran in at 13 real estate listings that are of the Foreclosure and REO variety. This does not include the approx 150 Short Sale listings which are in varying stages of foreclosure(in the active...

The Santa Clarita Foreclosure and Real Estate Owned Daily is out 2015.084

Good Day everyone – thanks for taking the time to check out our Santa Clarita, Valencia and Stevenson Ranch California foreclosure update. We are going to cover the bases as they relate to the Foreclosure Inventory then get into the bank’s pricing strategy. By you understanding how the bank’s price their Foreclosures, you will be better equipped to buy them. First – We have covered several key Santa Clarita real estate radio shows already this week. Monday – We had our market mondays broadcast. We uploaded some of the Data Reports for all of the SCV Cities concerning the local Housing Market.

This is the time during the week where we travel to some, or many resources online that will make your search for homes, property valuations, or foreclosure searches easier. These are systems we build unless they are not “connected to a specific housing realtor”. Example is the VA website where you are able to search for the VA approved complexes in the United States! This Tuesday we spoke about two new real estate sites that I put together that do specific things: – SCVowners.com This is a site that has it’s purpose for the owners of Santa Clarita and Southern California real estate. It allows someone to keep tabs of their home’s specific value. It allows for you to track your own property values: What we did was to take a system that is tied to the local Multiple Listing Service in the SCV cities, and expand it online. You...
