Fountain Hills, AZ Real Estate News

While the numbers of Short Sales and REOs in Fountain Hills 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...

Although we no longer see the levels of Short Sales that we did a few years ago in Fountain Hills, Notices of Default continue to be issued, meaning that yet another Fountain Hills 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...

  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 Fountain Hills 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 Fountain Hills home than allowing their Fountain Hills 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 i...

  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 Fountain Hills 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 ch...
