Interesting selection although sad state of affairs the country has to endure these foreclosures.

I would personally recommend these fellows: http://mortgagebuyerbasics.com/ . They helped save my house from being foreclosed!

With their loan modification/loan restructuring plan they saved my house from being foreclosed. They provide loan refinancing facilities as well.

Although my new husband and I make a decent living, we rent a small studio in an area of town where we couldn't realistically own at this time. We have looked into real estate, sat down with a broker, and been pre-approved for a $325K mortgage. However, in the current economy, even with housing prices supposedly falling to its lowest since the early 90's, getting into that kind of mortgage, with hardly any money-down (I owe student loans, and he still has 2 more years of school to go), we don't think it's wise getting ourselves into that kind of debt. My point is, if more people had been thinking like that, there wouldn't be such a foreclosure issue at this time. But many people saw $-signs a few years back, and thought they could make some easy money in 5 years, and are now stuck (some of them with 2 or 3 mortgages). I don't mean to sound cruel at all, as this is an extremely difficult lesson to learn, especially for people with young children. I'd LOVE it if we could own our own little condo in a nice, centrally located area, I really would! But we've been smart about it, and we're waiting till we have enough saved to put at least 20% down, which is 60K for a 300K home. It'll probably take a few years, but the way things are going, I don't foresee housing prices climbing to where it'll be unattainable for us. So, with that said, it does get under my skin when I hear the government is planning on "bailing people out" from foreclosure! WTF!?!? I was forced to take out $18K in loans because I supposedly did not qualify for grants when I went back to school to become a nurse. And I got lucky, because I went to a community college where tuition wasn't astronomical (a few friends of mine will graduate with a $60K debt!). And I don't think anyone is coming to bail any of US out. And we truly invested in our future. We bust our buns each and every day we're on the floor. Granted, we make good $, but it's still a HUGE responsibility. Arrgh! I guess I'm just venting. Be smart, people. Don't be such consumer-whores. No, you don't need the latest Ipod, IPhone, gadget, SUV, designer purse, or a week at an all-inclusive in Cancun if you have to put it on credit! I'm far from a cheapskate. I do my share for the environment, carefully researching the household products and make-up I use. We make our meals at home most of the time, and walk, ride our bikes, or take public transportation whenever we can. Buying a home a 45-minute drive from work just so I can say I own an acre is absurd to me! So call me a hippie, I don't care. At least I'm not foreclosing...

Hello to alls

It is a good post and I really like it because this is interesting selection although sad state.It is very good site in real estate.

My wife and I have been looking at various pieces of Boca Raton real estate (http://www.langrealty.com/content_no_menu.aspx ) and have been impressed with many of the repo’s we’ve walked through. It’s actually been somewhat of a surprise as we didn’t expect to find such good deal with repossessed homes. Now we’re not sure whether to buy new or go the repo route to save some money.

Posted by: Darren at Mar 15, 2008 10:39:09 PM

Wow! In Sarasota, Florida foreclosures are creeping to record numbers by the day.. Great time to buy if you're interested in taking a long position in that investment..

Posted by: www.thesarasotadeed.com at Mar 16, 2008 8:38:16 PM

There are agents in our community - Evergreen Real Estate - that are buying $1M plus houses for themselves purely by selling bank forclosures. I wonder what will happen when that market dries up. I still don't sell any bank shorts or foreclosures. Still feels like making money on someone elses misfortune. Maybe missing great opportunity but happy anyway.

Thanks to all for the tips and various sites. In my area we are fortunate in that we're not dealing with as many foreclosures. I did have one short sale. I certainly know where to find resources if I am faced with a foreclosure home sale.

Posted by: Sue at Jun 30, 2008 5:43:14 PM

Great article. I know things can get tough out there but I'm using a different website than the big two or three sites that cost $600-$800 a year.

I started using BuilderBrokerNetwork.com, it's really inexpensive (I think it's $59.99 a year). Basically, it networks commercial brokers, builders, and investors together. They have a Wants/Needs section that allows investors or buyers who are looking for certain types of commercial properties to post their needs then it's broadcasted to their database.

Hope this helps.

I have been in the mortgage business for many years and I have never seen this before. There are people out there like you that owe more on thier home than what its worth. They may have an adjustable loan, an interest only loan, or maybe even a pick-a-payment loan. Whatever it is, its adjusting and your payments are going up, way up. Maybe you lost your job and you can't afford the new payments. Maybe your escrows, taxes and insurance, have gone through the roof and you are getting behind on your payments.

If this sounds like you...WE CAN HELP!

This service isn't for everyone, but if you don't check with us, you will never know if it could work for you. Before you walk away from you dream, see if we can help.

IF YOU HAVE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING YOU MAY QUALIFY:

-Adjustable Rate Loans

-Pick-A-Payment Loan

-Interest Only Loans

-80/20 Loans

-Negative Amortization Loans

-Stated Income Loans

-Declining Property Values

-Taxes more than you can afford

-Insurance more than you can afford

-Escrows more than you can afford

-Loss Of Job

-Change In Wages

-Divorce

-Death Of Spouse/Co-Borrower

ANY FINANCIAL HARDSHIP!!!!

This is not a joke. This is not a scam.

This is real and we are helping people just like you.

Please don't wait until its too late and you have no options.

Nice info.... Thank you for sharing...

Posted by: Bobby Korey at Sep 13, 2008 12:54:45 AM

I am a victim of a foreclosing scam. These are the companies’ involved:

Trustmark National Bank
Mortgage Professionals
Remax Realty
Realty South


To understand Trustmark and any other mortgage company that takes your money, do not apply it to your account and puts you out of your house- UNDERSTAND THIS
When the Un-native Americans came over to this country, gun traders sold guns to the Native Americans knowing full well that they were going to use them on their fellow Americans. This is the same cold destructive attitude of Trustmark National Bank and all the other mortgage companies that do the same.
I was at Sixteenth Street Baptist Church that Sunday morning in Sunday school. My father dropped my brother and me off and he went home to dress for Church. Trustmark is responsible for destroying far more lives than on that Sunday. They are doing by taking money from homeowners, not applying that money to their accounts, and keeping that money for themselves. THEY ARE KILLING HOMEOWNERS AND THEIR FAMILIES ONE FAMILY AT A TIME. All the lawyers are working together; they know that the contracts are not being followed by the mortgage companies.


To check to see if your Mortgage Company sent in payments to HUD call:

FHA RESOURCE CENTER
1-800-225-5342


This is for anyone with a FHA or VA loan.

I want to help you. Please write me a letter with your situation to:

Edward M. Coke
P.O. Box 610021
Birmingham, Al 35261

I am going to sue the lawyers that handled the foreclosure for my mortgage company.

If they can read and understand the simple language in the contract, that they can’t foreclosure if the loan is not insured, then they are incompetent or crooked.
You can even sue your lawyer if he did not bring this part of the contract out.

HUD stated that the insurance mortgage premium policy number written on the settlement statement.
It was not.

The real estate company also knew at closing that the loan was not going to be insured.

If your mortgage company did not insure your FHA loan you can go back 7 years to sue in Alabama. All people from 2001-2008 can sue. In other states you may be able to go back even further.

Anyone out there who is having difficulty with their foreclosure should check out the website: www.fightfraudulentforeclosures.com
I purchased their ebook and could not believe some of the stuff I was reading. Did you know that in most cases the Plaintiff of the foreclosure is not the owner of the note? What does this mean? It means that the Plaintiff has no cause of action. When I read about the selling of mortgages all of that makes complete sense. How does the Plaintiff who does not legally own the debt foreclose on me? This is what got me so upset, the fact that I did not know this before they took my home. I hope that doesn't happen to any of you!!

Hi,
I own the website http://www.savemyhouse.org and I am developing a nationwide law firm to help people in foreclosure. The company is probably 5-6 months from opening but There is a website http://livinglies.wordpress.com/ (I don't own this one) that has some very good information that people can use. Great foreclosure defenses there

Posted by: mike at Nov 9, 2008 7:20:59 PM

There are many places for people to get help. Most people do not have to get to the foreclosure process to get their mortgages lowered, or their back payments incorporated or eliminated. Amerimod has done great things for me. Contact them at 888-956-5553x209. They can help in almost any case, even if you have an auction date. The banks got their bailout from the government, now it is the homeowners turn to get some help! No one seems to know about loan modifications and if you just go to your bank, they will not give you the best rate. Why should they, they are not on the homeowners side.

For those people facing foreclosure and/or bankruptcy and are curious about what might happen along the way, read how I have been dealing with my misfortunes in real estate. I had to let my house go back in foreclosure last year (I got 1099's this year for taxes), and I will probably lose two investment condos this year.
Best of luck to you.

I am in foreclosure on second home, with hearing for summary Judgment next week. I am filing a request to produce original note. We have documentation from 1st note holder to 2nd note holder but were foreclosed upon by a 3rd (or maybe 4th, who knows). We attempted to work out with representatives of 2nd note holder and listed for short sell toward deed in lieu. The real estate agent implied sale more difficult with tenants so we got rid of them (no problems there). When no interest from buyers after 5 months, we were entered into an agreement to rent property to a young newly married couple from church, on month to month, pending foreclosure. Tenants had taken possession by moving in belongings and one day came to find locks changed. Calls to attorney for plaintiff in foreclosure resulted in keys being sent aprox. 24 days later after many calls and emails. What can I do in my request to produce/motion to dismiss/ cross-claim, to help my case using this unlawful action?

It makes sense investing in real estate during depression since prices are falling but you should be very attentive to know when the prices hit the bottom, you might miss the ride.. You can park the properties and sell it later for a good price and remember “millionaires are made during economy depression!”.

Great blog resource, it's been a pleasure to read all of the sites your blog recommends. Check out http://beatforeclosureguide.com for information on how to avoid foreclosure and lower your monthly mortgage payments.

Posted by: Beat Foreclosure Guide at Jun 10, 2009 3:48:01 PM

Good job narrowing down all the information.

Posted by: Boca Waterfront at Jun 15, 2009 9:52:41 AM

If you are having financial difficulties and can't make your mortgage payments and you owe more on your house than it's worth, you probably need to do a short sale. This means the bank will take less than what you owe on the mortgage.

Most buyers stay away from short sales because they take too long and the buyer never knows if the short sale will actually be accepted by the bank.

I have a way around these problems and I can sign a purchase contract with you today to buy your house and work with your bank to get them to accept my offer.

Give me your email address at
foreclosuresolutionsgroup.com and I'll send you more info about how the process works. It's completely free to you and it'll really take the pressure off of you knowing that you now have a plan of action instead of a looming foreclosure.

For those in foreclosure or pre-foreclosure there is an little know company in South Florida that will help you with your problems. They inspect the documents of the loan and more often than not they can find problems in the documents that can put a hold on the foreclosure. As you know the lenders sell these mortgages and the documents are not in order such as the note and other documant filings. They will find these errors if they are there and more often they are there. Don't get involved in a Short Sale. There are all kinds of pitfalls. The lenders have been know to send you a 1099 for the difference. When just as you think your problems are over you have to deal with the IRS, another nightmare.
