One of the most recent frustrations I am dealing with in closing short sales here in Bradenton, FL has been created by associations that are unwilling to bend on outstanding HOA and Condo fees.  Has anyone else had an association attorney prevent a sale of a home over delinquent fees? Banks that foreclose on homes in Florida, and are part of a HOA or condo association will get 12 months of fees paid upon the sale.   In two current short sale files I am representing the HOA fees are over 12 months in arrears, and as part of the negotiations with the seller's lender(s) they will agree to pay 12 months of the hoa fees.  Their rational is that since this is all the HOA would get in a foreclosure sale, then they should be satisfied with the same amount with a short sale. This is a common sen...

PURCHASE AND REHAB YOUR HOME IN BRADENTON FLORIDA WITH THE FHA 203(K) LOAN - Most home buyers are turned off at the sight or even thought of buying a fixer-upper; a foreclosure or an older home today. However, educated and informed home buyers are utilizing the FHA 203(k) loan to buy their new home and fix it up with no additional out-of-pocket expense. The FHA 203(k) loan is a tool that savvy home buyers, successful contractors, Realtors and mortgage originators have been using since 1978. An FHA 203(k) loan is very similar to the traditional FHA loan. The only real difference is that with the FHA 203(k) loan, the home buyer is adding money to their mortgage balance to finance-in any repair/improvement cost. Whereas the traditional FHA loan requires that certain repairs be done before ...

1.  How long do you plan to stay put? Renting has one major advantage over buying a home.  Mobility.  If you want to move across town, or around the country, simply pack up and go when your lease is up.  Owning a home is not quite as simple.  You will have to sell your home which can take time.  If you are planning to live in the area for at least 3 years minimum, then buying a home may make more sense then renting.  If you are not sure if you like the area, have a need or desire to move soon, then buying a home is probably not a good idea.  One thing to keep in mind as a home buyer is if you had too could you rent the home for more than your cost to own?  This is a basic premise for any real estate investor.  Buying something that does not cash flow does not make any sense.  So if you ...

There may be hope for those that have tried for a loan modification without success.  Freddie mac has announced that they will have a program for modifying delinquent borrower's mortgages for those that have tried, and failed prior modifications, and also for those that do not qualify for the HAMP program.   I have heard of lots of talk of loan modification programs, but I am always hopeful that the idea of permanent loan modification for troubled borrowers could become commonplace.  This new modification program is set to begin in January.     To find out if you have a Freddie Mac loan to be eligible, check out their loan look up tool, here you can find out if Freddie mac owns your mortgage.   https://ww3.freddiemac.com/corporate/     In the hundred plus short sales that I have helped ...

Of course not! So, why do the banking crooks think that they are above the law and exempt from the same legal process that applies to every other criminal?

For those of you who haven't been keeping up, "robo-signing" has to do with bankers willfully and intentionally filing fraudulent loan paperwork, thus undermining our nation's system for facilitating the documentation and transfer of real estate ownership. Because they found the established legal process to be "inconvenient," mortgage lenders took it upon themselves to engineer ways to subvert the system to their own benefit, and to the detriment of borrowers. While these fraudule...
