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

  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 Queen Creek 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 Queen Creek home than allowing their Queen Creek 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 mo...

  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 Queen Creek 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 charg...

Real Estate is a second career for me.  My first career began in 1985 when I graduated from the Police Academy.  I spent the next 27 years in law enforement but that is a whole other story.  Fresh out of the academy and ready to put all my great new training to work, the Captain met with me to give me his sage words of advice and counsel. What followed was what everyone else already knew as the "Disneyland Story".Essentially, all new employees were encouraged to provide the best possible customer service we could to our community. The basic topics covered look something like this: Be Happy…make eye contact and smile! Be like Sneezy…greet and welcome each and every guest. Spread the spirit of Hospitality…It’s contagious! Don’t be Bashful…seek out Guest contact. Be like Doc…provide immedi...
