Distressed properties - those that are "under water" where more is owed on the property than will be available from the proceeds of a sale of the property - are thankfully far fewer than during the crash during the latter years of the previous decade. Still - some do exist - and Short Sales are still a viable option when faced with a "must sell" scenario of an "under water" property. Currently running at less than 3% of the closed transactions every month in our MLS, homeowners in that 3%, whether in Buckeye or another part of the valley, can still use our help. The first step is to contact us so we can schedule a complimentary confidential consultation to discuss how the short sale process works, and the considerations for your particular circumstances.   Careful up front planning is c...

While there are far fewer people these days considering a Short Sale of their home in Buckeye, there are still some who may have purchased just before the "bust" last decade who may owe significantly more on the home than the proceeds of the sale will bring. What to do? A Short Sale is one such solution. A Short Sale is a "regular resale" with one distinct and significant difference. The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance(s) owed on the loan(s). Whether or not a homeowner meets the other "requirements" of their lender(s) such as a "valid" hardship can only be determined by consultation with a skilled and experienced professional with a solid Short Sale track record - we recommend a minimum of 100 closed Short Sales with a 90%+ Short Sale List to Close ratio. The...

While the numbers of Short Sales and REOs in Buckeye are way down from the staggering levels following the market crash about 10 years ago, there are still some properties "under water" and some that have received a Notice of Default, the first step in the process that will result in the Trustee's Sale on the courthouse steps. It's always sad to see people give up and walk away from a home, particularly when alternatives exist which may well be better for them and their lien holders. We've learned that often those who "opt" to let the home go to foreclosure "by default" often believe that their personal circumstances prevent them from doing a Short Sale.   Circumstances such as: Multiple Home Loans IRS Income Tax Liens Past Due Child Support Past Due HOA Fees ...and the list goes on. In...

Although we no longer see the levels of Short Sales that we did a few years ago in Buckeye, Notices of Default continue to be issued, meaning that yet another Buckeye property is on the path towards foreclosure at auction on the courthouse steps. Suzanne and I wonder why the owners would allow the property to go to foreclosure, rather than investigate alternatives that may be mutually beneficial to themselves and their lenders. Not all properties heading for foreclosure are necessarily "under water" - which theoretically means they could be sold via a "traditional" sale rather than a "short sale" - but circumstances may mean there are other liens attached or other factors that inhibit or prevent the owners from selling the property - whether or not it's a short sale. Short Sales are "re...

  While the Short Sale days of the previous decade are for the most part behind us, the reality is that there are still hundreds of homes "under water" in Arizona.   While it's true that not every property facing foreclosure in Buckeye is "under water", may of them are, and unfortunately many homeowners still don't understand that the likelihood is they will be far better off doing a Short Sale of their Buckeye home than allowing their Buckeye home to be sold at auction on the courthouse steps!    Short Sales are "regular resales" with one big difference.     Your lender(s) must agree to accept less than the amount(s) owed on your loan(s).   While there are many details regarding Short Sale Seller financial circumstances and the hardship they face, the bottom line is that most lenders p...

  There are still hundreds of homes "under water" in Arizona.   In other words - the homes are worth less than the mortgage balance(s) - so it's not surprising that many homeowners are looking for solutions to stop foreclosure.   One solution to stop foreclosure and mitigate damage to a homeowner's credit is a Short Sale.   Short Sales are "regular resales" with one big difference.   Your lender(s) must agree to accept less than the amount(s) owed on your loan(s).   While there are many details regarding Short Sale Seller financial circumstances and the hardship they face, the bottom line is that most lenders prefer to stop foreclosure in favor of processing a Short Sale where the Seller is able to procure a Fair Market Value contract for their home.   After all, why foreclose on a home...

While the number of homes "under water" in Buckeye is significantly less than just a few years ago, some homeowners who purchased just before the "crash" that started in 2007 are still in a position where they owe more on their home than will be forthcoming from proceeds of a sale of the home. If you need to sell your home, and you are in this situation, a Short Sale is one solution to this situation. By definition a Short Sale is a regular resale with one distinct and significant difference. The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance owed on the loan(s). Whether or not you meet the other "requirements" of your lender(s) such as a "valid" hardship can only be determined by consultation with a skilled and experienced professional. There should be no upfront charge fo...

Buckeye, ArizonaThe City of Buckeye is located approximately 30 miles west of downtown Phoenix just off of the I-10 freeway.  The original town of Buckeye was founded by early pioneers in 1888 and was built around the downtown's main street. Agriculture was a huge part of Buckeye's identity for decades, and while there is still farmland in the area (mainly cotton and alfalfa),  numerous communities and subdivision have been built, the majority of them have easy access to the freeway.  The City of Buckeye boundaries are vast, encompassing nearly 600 square miles of Phoenix's West Valley.  Buckeye is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation.Area Attractions Golf Courses:  Rave at Verrado, Sundance Golf Club, Copper Canyon Golf Club, Sun City Festival Hiking and Camping:  Skyline Re...

Yes, I’ll list your House; No I Don’t Need to See It The phone rang yesterday and on the other end was a familiar voice.  The caller asked if I could list her home for sale.  “Of course I can,” I said.  The caller is a past client who purchased a new build home through me back in 2010.   She asked if I needed to see it and I replied, “No I remember it very well.”   Bear in mind that with this client, I had visited the design center with she and her sister.  They were delightful and I liked that they were both very different.  They each had their own style and personality.  This sister is pragmatic, analytical, and is quite the golfer.  The other may be a golfer, but is more apprehensive and a planner.  We had a grand time picking out finishes. Assisting clients through the design proces...
