BENICIA SHORT SALES AND HIGHER EDUCATION What on earth could BENICIA short sales have to do with education?  Let me illustrate.  Two years ago I had a client who declined the terms of their short sale and let the property go into foreclosure.  They were advised by an attorney that this would be the better option.  They could declare bankruptcy and everything would be fine.  Yes, surprisingly, the same attorney did their bankruptcy for $2700. Well, the husband got into a car accident which totaled the car five months after the bankruptcy was discharged and had to pay over 12% interest for a car loan.  His payments are over $600 a month on a car that cost less than $15k.  Ouch. Now comes the heartbreaker.  His oldest child applied to California State University at San Francisco.  Was acce...

Fabulous Friday morning to all, Expect choppy trading today with most of the pro traders off early for the long weekend. Yesterdays sell off was triggered by China indicating they would support European debt. Why....... they need to sell what they produce somewhere. With the Fed out of the market trading is choppy and as yesterday market news can create wild swings. Rate Guard Update Enjoy the long weekend!

BENICIA REAL ESTATE SHORT SALES Do short sales sell?  Yes they do!  There have been many improvements by the banks to process short sales a lot faster.  If you have a Wells Fargo or Wachovia loan, you may be able to get an answer within seven days.   If you are a Bank of America customer, they have a new automated system that streamlines the process.  Since May 1st, there have been five successful short sales closed in Benicia real estate, 11 new short sales listed and 19 that have gone pending.  So 24 out of 30 have had or are headed towards a successful outcome.  There are a lot of reasons that you may have to do a short sale, loss of income, transfer for your job, the need to downsize.  The banks will work with you, but you need an agent experienced in the short sale process as well ...

BENICIA REAL ESTATE-MODIFYING MY MORTGAGE Due to recent economic events, many find that they are having difficulty keeping up with their current mortgage payments.  Given the fact that many will soon see low or no interest rate mortgages adjust up, they are knowledgeable that they will not be able to afford their mortgage payment. Enter the loan modification.  LOOK OUT!!!!  A loan modification promises under the HAMP or HAFA programs to lower your monthly payment to one that meets your current economic situation.  First ask yourself, why would my bank really want to help me?  Most would say, because they do not want me to foreclose, they get nothing.    Banks know how to protect their investments; they most likely have insurance that you are unaware of. A loan modification sounds like a...
