Westminster CO: Home Farm Monthly Market Minute February 2013 by Jennifer Prestwich, REALTOR®, YCRE The Real Estate market in Home Farm has been holding fairly steady over the past few years.  While home values did see a drop, Home Farm has not seen a great amount of short sale and bank owned properties in comparison to much of the Denver Metro area. The turnover rate for the past 12 months in Home Farm has been 5.4%.  This represents the number of sold homes as compared to the number of total homes in the area.  There were 16 sold homes over the past 12 months.  This number has seen a drop since January.  As was the case in January's report, I attribute this drop to the normal slowing of the winter market, as there has not been much new inventory to replace those homes that have sold. ...

"Disgusting Lender To Watch Out For!!"   Westminster, CO - Wow, not much to say about this organization that is GOOD or POSITIVE, when working a short sale situation for your client!! They are called, "21st Mortgage Corp", based out of Knoxville, TN.  Their main business is to provide loans on Manufactured Housing!!   Recently, and that is probably over the last couple years, they have gotten into servicing loans.  GMAC, has been releasing their loan service business, and 21st Mortgage Corp has picked up some of that business!! Now, here is where it gets interesting.  When you review their website at https://www.21stmortgage.com/web/21stSite.nsf/GMACCustomer?OpenForm, you will see some disturbing policies, if you can stop laughing long enough, on what they will do in the event 21st Mort...

"Do We Have a Challenge Or What?"   Westminster, CO -  Oh BOY, now the fun begins!!  How many times have you come across a situation you just DO NOT KNOW much about, and must still take care of your client's needs, because you are their Real Estate Advocate for their short sale?? This has recently happened to one of my short sale listings!  The 2nd lien holder, GMAC, has released their service on this loan, right in the middle of negotiating the short pay-off!!  What is worse, is the new loan servicer of the 2nd lien holder, and that amout is probably around $32,000, is 21st Mortgage Corp!   Yes, this is a new loan provider for me to deal with.  Mind you, I do have a short sale processor to work my client's short sale process so that I CAN DO what we do best....
