Free Foreclosure and Avoidance Guide

by The Pilgrim Team

  Free Foreclosure Avoidance Guide

I wanted to provide information to you about some startling statistics regarding the latest distressed property trends.

In a recent study by Lender Processing Services (LPS), 6.38 million people were at least 30 days late on their Home Financing payments. If you or someone you care about is feeling the stress of an unaffordable mortgage, please take the time to review the free foreclosure avoidance guide I’ve place on my website: www.YorkShortSales.com

As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), I can navigate a homeowner through a variety of options. I’ve listed some of the most common alternatives to foreclosures that homeowners can take advantage of to get back on the path to financial stability.

 

I would truly appreciate your taking the time to refer any homeowners you know that may need my assistance. I’m sure that they would appreciate it, too! The sooner they contact me, the more time we’ll have to develop a strategy to avoid foreclosure.

 

With gratitude,

Jerry Pilgrim

Break Free From Unaffordable Mortgage Payments!

by The Pilgrim Team

 

Break Free From Unaffordable Home Financing Payments!

A recent study in Nevada (a state that holds the nation’s highest Foreclosure rate), found that only 5% of distressed homeowners knew they had alternatives to foreclosure, and only 3% took advantage of them. It was also found the 1 in 4 homeowners chose to “strategically default,” or allow their Homes for sale in york pa to be foreclosed upon on purpose!

The Realtors Association of York and Adams County (RAYAC) and the local Multiple List Service report for York County that there are currently 3236 (Active) properties on the market as of May 24th, 2011.  There are 371 Short Sales included in that total, and there have been 276 Bank Owned Properties that have closed or are pending settlement and 260 properties have sold since January 1st. These numbers represent 536 total distressed properties or 27% of the properties sold.

Clearly, too few distressed homeowners know their options and the fallout of foreclosure. If they did, they’d soon realize that there’s nothing ‘strategic’ about foreclosure, and that avoiding foreclosure is always the best plan to create financial stability.

Millions of Americans feel alone and trapped by Home Financing payments they can no longer afford. In fact, 27% of Americans with Home Loans now owe more than what their home is worth. However, more and more of them are finding education on the responsible alternatives to foreclosure is helping them move toward financial stability.

Education is key. The more distressed homeowners know about solutions, the more likely they are to overcome their financial challenges. I’ve seen this firsthand.

I can help with the education part—it’s up to you to contact Jerry Pilgrim Broker/Owner of Pilgrim Team of Professional Realty Asscociates.

 

 

 

 

Investment Property, York PA

by The Pilgrim Team

With college starting back up it could be time to consider buying an Real Estate Investment property for your child to live in rather than paying for a dorm room. With interest rates being so low it makes sense to invest in something that you can later sell or hold onto as a rental property rather than pay rent for a room.

York College, Penn State York, Gettysburg College, HACC, and York Technical Institute are some of the campuses nearby.

Pilgrim Team can help you find just the right property that could work for you. Contact us to discuss this opportunity further.

What a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) Offers

by The Pilgrim Team

What can Jerry Pilgrim, a CDPEAdvanced member, offer to homeowners in distress?

“I am a member of the CDPEAdvanced program. You may have heard of CDPEs or Certified

Distressed Property Experts before. We are agents who have committed to understanding and

providing Foreclosure avoidance solutions to homeowners facing financial hardship.

Being a real estate agent today means something different than perhaps a few years ago.

Today, around 15 percent of Home Loans are delinquent, or not being paid. That means one in six

homeowners you meet may be experiencing the same challenges you are. So the first thing you

should know is that you’re not alone, and that there are millions of others across the country

in your situation.

As a CDPEAdvanced member, I’m part of the charge to turn this crisis around by immersing

myself in the solutions available to distressed homeowners. And my goal is to bring the best

option to each individual homeowner.

CDPEAdvanced gives me access to regular industry updates from the Distressed Property

Institute, a company created by real estate leaders with the specific purpose of pulling as many

homeowners out of distress as possible.

I also have access to a network of top agents nationwide who are also dealing with distressed

properties. This is a powerful tool. It lets me find out what is happening on the front lines, what

banks and buyers are looking for, which foreclosure avoidance tactics are working and which

ones aren’t.

Between the market analysis and the network of agent communication, I can offer you the

most current, relevant solutions.

This housing market has become such a moving target that anyone who isn’t taking extra steps

to keep up will simply get left behind. My clients need to know all the options available to them,

and that is what I can deliver. This is why I am a CDPEAdvanced member.”

Avoid Mortgage Modification Fraud

by The Pilgrim Team

Hi
I wanted to give you a heads up on something I think every single homeowner should be aware of. The FBI and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have reported a 400 percent increase in Home Financing fraud cases from five years ago. Seems to be that with more homeowners unable to make mortgage payments, there are more and more predators trying to exploit these people.

I don't want to be unnecessarily alarmist. But this is a threat that you or anyone you know should be aware of when going through a real estate transaction. It's not the nicest thing to think about, but essential nonetheless.

For anyone you know who is considering a relocation, Home Financing modification, Short Sale or any other transaction, I put together a free report available on my website that explains what kinds of fraud schemes the FBI has seen, as well as the "red flags" to look out for. You can download it here:

If you have any questions about Home Financing scams, or if anyone you know needs legitimate, professional help with avoiding Foreclosure, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am here to help.

Sincerely,

Jerry Pilgrim
