Strategic Foreclosue?

by The Pilgrim Team

What is a "strategic Foreclosure"?  There has been a lot of talk lately on the news networks such as ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX News, MSNBC and others about these types of forclosures. I have heard the talk that if it is ggod enough for corporate america to walk away from the financial obigations it should be good enough for the private sector to do the same.

Think of it like this, and ask yourself these questions.  Does the corporation have a family to feed? Does the corporation need a place to live? Does it need to have credit in the future to buy a house or even rent an apartment? Does it need a job? If you need any or all of these things STAY AWAY from the idea of a Strategic Foreclosure. They entice you to milk the system for all it can give you at the time, but remember payback can come back to hit you in a big way.

The only good foreclosue is NO foreclosure. You need an expert with the experience like a CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) who can work closely with the Banks to negotiate a settlement that will not adversely affect you for a very long time such as a foreclosure can. Please go to my web site www.pilgrimteam.com and seach for my CDPE site for additional information that can help you or someone you may know who is struggling with the possibility of foreclosure.

REALTYTRAC® YEAR-END REPORT SHOWS RECORD 2.8 MILLION

U.S. PROPERTIES WITH FORECLOSURE FILINGS IN 2009

A total of 2,824,674 U.S. properties in received a foreclosure filing in 2009, a 21 percent increase in total properties from 2008 and a 120 percent increase in total properties from 2007, according to the RealtyTrac Year- End 2009 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report. The report also shows that 2.21 percent of all U.S. housing units (one in 45) received at least one foreclosure filing during the year, up from 1.84 percent in 2008, 1.03 percent in 2007 and0.58 percent in 2006. Foreclosure filings were reported on 349,519 U.S. properties in December and foreclosureactivity in the fourth quarter decreased 7 percent from the third quarter.

The latest idea bubbling up in the world of real estate is the use of principal reductions to stem the foreclosure tide, the theory being that if we lower Home Financing balances then homeowners will have smaller monthly payments and fewer foreclosures. Truth is, the only reason lenders will reduce principal balances is when it's to their advantage. Reducing principal balances will instantly produce big and hideous losses, something Lenders don't want but something lenders will accept if the probability of even bigger and more hideous losses from short sales and foreclosures can be avoided.

Faster Sales Coming For Foreclosure Buyers

Foreclosure buyers got a Christmas Eve goodie from Fannie Mae, a new strategy that's likely to make foreclosure purchasing very much quicker. The catch? A bunch of lenders are about to be very unhappy. With the growing number of distressed properties there's now a substantial “foreclosure discount” in most markets. What were once tolerable and controlled losses are today steep and sharp declines that leave lender red ink everywhere. The question for loan owners is this: Is there anyway to make such lender losses smaller? The answer, as we shall see, turns out to be good news for foreclosure buyers.
