Don't foreclose! Do a Humble Texas short sale... March 30, 2010 · Email me Short sales are the hottest thing going in the distressed-property market, and the trend is expected to get even hotter in coming weeks, when the government starts handing out cash to encourage lenders to close these deals. "Banks have ramped up short sale approvals," said Duane Legate of House Buyer Network, which connects short sellers with buyers. "They're hiring a lot of the people who once worked in the mortgage-lending industry and moved them over to short sales." These transactions, where lenders allow homeowners to sell their houses for less than they owe, accounted for 17% of all residential real estate sales in February, up from nearly 13% in November, according to a monthly real estate market survey by...

Are You Buying a Texas Short Sale Most buyers pursuing short sales get a good deal.  When you see a price listed for a home that you think is too low for the neighborhood, ask your real estate agent to call the listing agent to find out if the home is a short sale. You might want to think twice about making an offer on a pre-foreclosure, short sale home. Very few can close in 30 days or less. Many home buyers have waited 3 to 4 months to close on a short sale, sometimes longer. But is it a good deal to wait on a short sale? What is a Short Sale? A short sale means the seller's lender is accepting a discounted payoff to release an existing mortgage.  Because a property is listed with short sale terms does not mean the lender will accept the offer, even if the seller accepts it. A seller ...

Is There a Length of Time to wait for Short Sale Approval?                 And Why You Need to Involve Real Estate Investors!!                                                                                                             Email meTexas short sale buyers are singing the blues right along with everyone else. Every short sale is different and depends as much on the lender as it does on the listing agent. Some listing agents outsource their short sale negotiations to a third party, which can give the agent more time to more on other listingsQualify Your Short Sale Before Writing the Offer Before you decide to buy a short sale home, ask your agent to do a little groundwork first. Some of the things your agent might do are: Examine the Comparable Sales Many banks will discount t...

Frustrated Public Awareness is needed in the Houston Real Estate market! Here is my experience: Being licensed in a few states it boggles my mind how the public here in Houston thinks that we (Us Realtors) get paid a salary.  I have had scades people call and tell me to show them a house because their Realtor is on vacation or their Realtor was lazy and sent them to the listing agent.  Example: I had a call where the prospect called me and asked to see a house.  I asked if she was working with a realtor and she said yes but she is out of town.  I explained to her that i had no incentive to show the home because I am not the listing agent nor her buyers agent.  She said well it is your company's listing you should show it to me any how.  I explained that i am commission based independant...
