Ventura County Short Sales: Why A Second Mortgage Is Willing To Negotiate On A Short Sale

Your Ventura County Certified Short Sale Specialist. Loan Modification Denied? HARP re-fi denied? Want to avoid foreclosure? THE BEST REALTOR IN VENTURA COUNTY CA,Ventura County Short Sale HELP!! –Are you wondering why a Second Mortgage or HELOC gets zero from a foreclosure. Let me explain why.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.  When a property is foreclosed upon, it is auctioned on the courthouse steps.  Let me give you a scenario where a homeowner owes the following on the property.  First Mortgage is owed $200,000.  Second Mortgage is owed $40,000.  There is a HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit) that is owed $100,000. (The home increased in value to $400,000 and a lender agreed to grant the loan.)  So a total of $340,000 is owed on the property. Now, what if it only sells for $150,000 on the courthouse steps. Who gets that $150,000?  The first mortgage does. The second mortgage wouldn’t get a dime unless the property sold on the courthouse steps for more than $200,000.  The HELOC is in third position and doesn't receive any money unless it sold for more than $240,000. This is why a second mortgage gets so little money from a foreclosure.  Historically, second mortgages were loaned for the top 20% of the property value. The lower 80% was the first mortgage.  In most cases, the attorney fees, foreclosure costs, delinquent property taxes, and other fees would bring the first mortgage’s total up to around 100% of the property value.  This is why in most cases a second mortgage rarely gets any money from a foreclosure. Of course there are other variables that can change things, but this is how it usually works. Thinking about a short sale?  I can help you short sale your property and get back on your feet.

Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why? Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit. However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification. We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision. This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing. You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
