A Bill of Rights...For Homeowners?

Hi Folks,
   I hope everyone had a great weekend, and welcome back!

   It had to happen. We knew it was coming. We didn't know how, or when, however, we do know what it is, from whom, and why! It started with our "Bill of Rights" here in the United States a few hundred years back. Fast forward those few hundred years, and we have seen the creation of a different Bill of Rights for Airline Passengers. And on January 1, 2013, the "Homeowner Bill of Rights" takes effect in the state of California.

   The legislation was actually passed in July, however, this "landmark law", as it's been referred to, is making a big splash from coast-to-coast. Emerging from the dust and ashes of the "Robosigning" scandal, as well as the vulnerability of homeowners during the mortgage modification and foreclosure process, this Bill of Rights is actually a "series of bills enacted to protect California homeowners", to which the California Attorney General Kamala Harris said, "will give struggling homeowners a fighting shot to keep their home" (as per a recent story by Barry Paperno on Credit.com).

   In terms of lenders and loan servicers, the Bill of Rights imposes requirements on them, such as prohibiting “dual track” foreclosures (simultaneous foreclosure process and loan modification negotiation with the servicer), guaranteeing a single point of contact from the lender/servicer "for a borrower with a loan modification application pending", writes Paperno. Additionally, banks will need to be much clearer in explaining a rejected loan modification to a borrower, and similarly, allows borrowers to sue lenders for "significant, material violations” of the law, writes Paperno. The Robosigning fiasco was also addressed in the requirement that servicers "document their right to foreclose and imposes fines of $7,500 per loan on fraudulently signed mortgage documents".

   These sound like some great components, however, as Paperno writes, consumer advocate critics of the bill have charged that "only first-lien mortgages for owner-occupants apply", that by first taking effect in 2013, "hundreds of thousands of troubled homeowners won’t benefit from these protections". Additionally, additional criticism included the lack of obligation by servicers to "consider applications for loan modifications or appeals before January 1, 2013."

   "Opposition to the Homeowner Bill of Rights was mounted by the large banks, the California Chamber of Commerce, title companies, real estate agents, trustees and securities industry representatives", writes Paperno.

   There may be some minor drawbacks, and there may be some tweaks needed, however, this looks like a solid piece of legislation in a state that has been pummeled by Foreclosures, and these new laws could have been quite helpful all along. Will they start sprouting up in other State Legislatures? I certainly believe so, but help is needed now in states such as Arizona, Nevada, Florida, and many more. How soon do you think these and the other states will see light at the end of the tunnel?

Rent, Own, or the Hybrid of Rent to Own?

Hi Folks,
   Welcome back, and I hope all of you made it safely through Hurricane Irene, and ironically, this weekend was the 6-Year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I am still without power, as I post this from a laptop with draining power and through my wireless Droid hotspot. But...the show must go on...

   Oftentimes, when people are renting a home, they get to a point where they realize that they are paying their landlord's mortgage, putting the landlord's kids through college, or any of a million other ways to spin it. But with the complete change in the "norm" that has taken place over the last few years, these thoughts need to be seriously weighed in light of many other factors.

   David Getson, a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential in the District of Columbia, was recently quoted in a story by Michele Lerner ("Rent-vs.-own equation changing"), and said that the decision to buy a home vs. rent a home is, “Usually this is an emotional decision rather than a financial one, based on their desire for a dog, to start a family, to put down roots or just to have the ability to paint their walls whatever color they want.”

   Lerner writes that the decision to move from renter to homeowner was "simpler in 2005 for two reasons", which she points to as the "trajectory" of real estate prices that made buyers "comfortable that the property purchase would be a good investment", coupled with the fact that mortgage lenders "made it easy for buyers to qualify, even if they lacked cash and had yet to demonstrate a pattern of creditworthiness." However, she writes, the decision nowadays required "more measured thinking about the emotional impact and the financial implications of purchasing a home."

   Getson advises that potential buyers must look at their lifestyle today and the lifestyle they expect to have in 5+ years. In the same story, Bennett Whitlock, a financial adviser and managing director of Whitlock and Associates in Lake Ridge, Va., said, "becoming a homeowner should be part of an overall financial plan rather than a simple rent-versus-own decision."

   Lerner says that instead of contacting a Realtor as a first step (as most potential buyers do), they really should visit a lender and estimate how much they can borrow. Mark Goldstein, president of Capitol Funding in Rockville, adds that some important factors are Job Security, the amount of time the buyers plan to stay in the home, and suggests that buyers should assume 5+ years in the home to recoup costs and see appreciation (similar to the comments of Getson).

   Financially, Getson says that buyers today, "seem to recognize that their comfort level with the monthly payment is more important than borrowing as much as they are approved for". With that in mind, Whitlock suggests to avoid spending more than 33% of your gross monthly income on housing costs. As for a security cushion to cover home maintenance and repairs, Goldstein recommends that you keep some cash reserves on hand.

   Goldstein suggests that one way he advises buyers to prepare for homeownership is to, "take the difference between their current rent and their prospective mortgage payment and put that money in a savings account each month”, and adds that this helps the prospective buyer "get used to the monthly payment and make sure they are comfortable with it, rather than finding out six months after they bought a house that they are paying too much for their mortgage". Definitely a fantastic idea!

   Rent or Own? Decisions, Decisions...! How about the best of both worlds...Rent to Own? Great idea? Yes, I know...shameful promotion time...Rent to Own Homes via our website (HomeRun Homes). OK, sometimes we plug the site...the idea is not to abuse it !

From Foreclosure To Eviction...Why So Long?

Hi Everyone,

   Welcome back!

   A major trend that is (sadly) happening all around us is the foreclosure process, which entails a long and drawn-out process which usually ends in the eviction of the current homeowners...or not!

   Today, let's focus on the "or not!", and see what is really going on out there.

   A recent CNN story written by Les Christie, titled, "Squatter Nation: 5 years with no mortgage payment", examined this in detail, and said that Nationwide, "it takes an average of 565 days to foreclose on borrowers in default from their first missed payments to the final auction. In New York, the average is 800 days". One such example of "Squatters", as they are referred to, is a Florida couple, that, "have not made a mortgage payment in nearly five years -- but they continue to live in their five-bedroom West Palm Beach, Fla. home.". I find that absolutely incredible !

   As incredible as it may sound, this is not a new trend, says Patrick Hohman of Louisville, KY, who says that when his dad was a little boy, "they lived in their foreclosed home from 1933 to 1937. Due to the volume of foreclosures in the 1930s, they stayed in the home for 4 years before being put on the street."

   Lesley A. Hoenig, a bankruptcy attorney practicing in Michigan, says that "the foreclosure process can take an insanely long time in some cases, especially if the owner has filed chapter 13 to catch up.", and that, "Ultimately, the lender may eventually kick the person out (Likely if the person isn't making any effort to get the loan modified or catch up)", and adds that, "until the number of foreclosures die down, people are going to be able to spend up to two or three years in their house before getting kicked out".

   Hoenig thinks that the main reason people manage to stay in their house is, "because lenders aren't really itching to have vacant houses in their inventory.". Marc S Hyman JD, a Licensed Real Estate Agent in Santa Barbara CA, says basically the same thing; "The last thing a bank wants to do in this market is actually take possession of a home so banks are letting the foreclosure process drag out as much as possible.", he says, adding, "During a normal market banks foreclose quickly in order to get their "investment" back as soon as possible and put it back to work."

   The reason Hyman provides is that in this market, "a bank does not want to own a home that it will need to maintain and insure. The bank will become responsible if anyone gets hurt while on the property. Furthermore a bank will not be able to sell the house quickly. Banks are looking at any solution that does not mean taking back the house.".

   Hyman does say, though, that once it does complete the foreclosure, "it does quickly evict tenants in order to avoid the legal obligations of being a landlord eg timely repairs, insurance coverage etc.". Referring back to the Christie piece from CNN, one such "Squatter" says that, "Living in this foreclosure limbo is "Hell,"", and adds, "I feel like I'm locked in a box. I work for a financial organization and if this came out, it could cost me my job."

   Ultimately, Hyman offers up this interesting point, and perhaps something for everyone to chew on; "The squatters are getting a longer break than in the past but it will come to an end.", and says that, "The sad thing is that the squatters are spending everything they are saving while living rent free. If they did not have the squatter mentality they would be saving the money and looking to buy somewhere else with the windfall they are getting by squatting."

   Hyman makes a very good point. We need to realize that a lot of these "Squatters" are families (with children), who had been working hard for years to pay on time, until hardships arose with the Economic downturn. It does not make it right, but it's quite possible that this category of folks would never have imagined being in the foreclosure process and being a "Squatter". It seems as if the whole definition of everything we believe(d) in has taken a 180-degree turn. Tough Times!

   What are your thoughts on this hot topic?

Have a Great Week, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !

Fear Over The Closing Of Escrow Process?

Good Morning,

   Monday has rolled around today, and summer is fast approaching (WOW!).

   On the topic of "Heat", one of the times we sweat to most is during Closing on a property. As on Ron J. Kuhn, a Sr. Mortgage Planner, says, "Closing" or settlement or "escrow" is listed as one of the top ten problem areas that occurs in a real estate transaction. It is probably the least understood, and most feared, aspect in a property purchase. Misunderstandings about closing costs can result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars of needless expenses, and put seemingly solid deals at risk". If that's not enough to make you sweat, let's examine this topic today.

   "In general: The process is dependent upon conditions set by the lender", says Nigel Swaby of Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc.. Swaby says that the conditions are quite often set by the investor that will, "end up buying the loan on the secondary market.", and adds that With loan buybacks becoming more prevalent, "this is very, very important as no originator wants to buy back loans that can't be sold." Susan Anderson, a Broker with Inspired Real Estate, adds that, "The closing process is generally the same in any transaction, but there are some definite differences depending on whether the transaction involves a traditional sale, short sale, or REO (foreclosed property), as well as whether the(re) is financing involved or the purchase is all-cash."

   As you can imagine, each state has their own unique process, and as Swaby says, "State law will impact the closing process.", and provides the state of Maryland as an example. "Maryland has transfer taxes that are levied on buyer and seller.", he says, but adds that the state specific requirements are "handled by the closing title or escrow company."

   Anderson says that one thing that is unique in California is that, "in Northern California, the escrow and title are usually handled by the same company. In Southern California, they are often different companies. Also, the buyer gets to pick the escrow/title company and the offer negotiation determines who pays for it (usually 50/50)." She says that usually, the escrow officer is in the local community, but says that, "However, with an REO, the selling bank usually picks the escrow/title, but they also pay for it, saving the buyer a big chunk of money. In that case, the escrow is most often handled by a company out of town who is working in a 'bulk' arrangement with the seller."

   Timothy G. Kearney, a Real Estate Attorney in Connecticut, says that Connecticut is an "attorney state" which means, "attorneys do the closings as opposed to an escrow or title agent in a title state." He says that the rules, "can vary from county to county but are, for the most part, standard." Kearney says that the normal process starts with the Execution of a P&S Contract, passes through title search, scheduling of closing, and then all of the settlements and figures are compared and adjusted, ultimately reaching the closing and conveyance of security deeds.

   Anderson says that, "as an agent, I prefer having someone local handle the transaction as it provides the ability to meet face-to-face if a problem arises.", but says that "one of the very best, pleasant, most efficient escrow officers I ever worked with was a woman in Southern California assigned to an REO transaction. And, of course, in California we do not use attorneys as part of the closing process. The real estate agent and broker are responsible for the entire process. I believe have the most rigorous broker license testing in the US."

   Kuhn adds the following comment about the Closing: "This final step to your purchasing a home or property can go smoothly if you take a few precautions beforehand. Knowing what questions to ask and reviewing all documents well in advance of the closing day will prepare you for a hassle-free and smooth closing.

   Good sound advice and good information. Tell us about your state's procedures and what are your suggestions. We'd love to hear from you.

Have a Great Week, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !

Real Estate Market Forecast For 2011

Hi Folks,

   Happy Friday. How was your week? Did you meet all of your goals?

   The question for today is: "Where Do You See The Real Estate Market Headed in 2011 ?" In order for us to gain the proper perspective, we spoke with professionals from 3 pieces of the Real Estate "Pie": A Real Estate Advisor, A Real Estate Investor, and A Real Estate Attorney.

   The Real Estate Advisor that we spoke with is John Rymer, of Rymer Strategies in Tampa. Rymer discusses the continuous, "downward pressure in the form of added supply from foreclosures and banks finally disposing of long-distressed condominiums in many sunbelt locations", as well as the, "tightening of credit standards" from the, "GSE's (Freddie and Fannie) and overly zealous overlays from the major mortgage banks that have made mortgage approval the most difficult in generations."

   Rymer tells us that, "As any renter will tell you, patience has been well rewarded in this downturn and strategic buyers who jumped in during 2008 - 2009 have been penalized are now gun shy about putting more money, or recommending to other to put money into real estate.". In addition, Rymer reminds us that the, "affordability of homeownership is at a 50 year record.", and warns that, "Sooner or later greed always overcomes fear". "Will 2011 be the year that we see a significant uptick in housing?", questions Rymer, rhetorically, "and replies, "Perhaps not until late in the year, but headlines seem to focus on the negative, so look for any good news to be buried on page 6."

   For the perspective from a Real Estate Investor, we spoke with Marc Sherby, the "Sheriff Sale Guru", who believes that foreclosures will continue to be one of the, "hottest segments of the market in 2011, in spite of the robo-signing incident." Sherby has seen a drop-off in foreclosures at the end of Q4 in 2010 due to banks, "checking and rechecking their paperwork.", but says that, "as the lenders get their paperwork houses in order and as the continued sales are carried out, and as new properties are coming up for sale there will most likely be a deluge of housing on the market. That is why I see the market headed to another record year in foreclosures, as do most experts."

   Sherby says that for those who are educated in purchasing foreclosures, "the buys will be extremely good to great as banks chop prices even further to move product from their non-performing assets inventory.", and says that while retail prices are still dropping in some markets, some others are stabilizing.

   Troy Doucet a Real Estate Attorney, provides our Real Estate Attorney perspective, and says that he sees the Real Estate market, "continuing to stagnate this year into next.", and states that, "as the pressure of debt continues to grow on state and local governments, we will begin to see interest rates rise. As interest rates rise in the bond markets, rates will rise for homebuyers, meaning buying a home will become more expensive and will discourage buyers." Just as our other commentators have said in this article, Doucet also points to the number of foreclosures and the, "lender's shadow inventories of homes" as major contributors to the, "market's stagnation."

   How about your point of view? What do you think about the 2011 Real Estate Market? We'd love to hear your comments.

Taking the Plunge - 3 Tips on Buying Your Rental Property

Hi Folks,

   Happy mid-week to everyone, and we ask that you arrive safely to wherever your destination is, should you need to commute in the Northeast today.

   You know, if you're renting a property, and the homeowner gave you an option to buy the property...well, how do you know when you are truly ready to buy the home? That is the question we are addressing today, along with 3 tips to help you along.

   "As a tenant with an option to own there are some fundamental principles you should consider before buying a property.", says Brian Rademacher of Re/Max Advantage Plus. First, make sure the property, "is a good fit for your lifestyle and family. Do you ultimately envision this property as your home?"

   Secondly, says Rademacher, "contact a real estate professional to review the option to purchase contract and perform a current market analysis. With declining real estate values in many markets the purchase price on the option contract may be higher then the current market value of the property.", and he suggests that if this is the case, that you should, "show the owner the current market analysis and discuss lowering the purchase price to meet the current market value.

   As a final tip, Rademacher suggests that you, "talk to a mortgage professional to determine if you are qualified to obtain a loan to purchase the property. Find out what your mortgage payment would be and if your mortgage commitment would fit into your monthly budget." As Greg Cook, a Mortgage Professional, says, "Owning a home costs more than renting. Most of the time an "all-in" mortgage payment (including taxes and insurance) will be more than the rent they might currently be paying. But that's only part of it. The tenant is now responsible for maintenance, repairs and all those other little expenses that come with homeownership." Cook also recommends to any tenant looking to , "make that jump" to find out from a, "first time home buyer specialist how much the mortgage payment would be on the home they are buying, add an additional $100-$200 each month and then take that difference between rent and homeownership expenses and put it in savings."

   "Having seen several option agreements over the years, ask yourself a 2 pronged question", says Thomas Redmond of Redmond Realty. "1st, What is important about staying in this property and the community at this time and 2nd, Are the terms in my option agreement favorable or extremely favorable when considering my local market as well as my ability to purchase elsewhere during the option period." Redmond says that if the answer is, "yes I want to stay here for a couple of years or longer but your option favors to the landlord, who likely prepared the option agreement, then renegotiate or let option expire."

   "As long as renting is not substantially cheaper than owning it would be worthwhile to become the owner and start reaping the tax benefits and building equity.", says Lenny Layland, Broker/Owner of Investorlando Realty. Layland says that the owner, "should be doing everything possible to help this happen (assuming they want the tenant to exercise the option). Credit counseling support, paying closing costs and rent credits are possible ways."

   In summary, Rademacher says that it's a good time to buy, "if the property is a good fit for your lifestyle, has a sound option to purchase contract, is priced at current market value, and meets your budget and mortgage qualifications." By analyzing these 3 items, Cook says that, "Not only will they now have an idea of what sacrifices or lifestyle changes will need to be made but they will have built up their savings which, from a lender perspective, is only a good thing.

   Redmond makes a very positive statement, in saying that you need to, "Remember you bring a lot to this transaction so do not discount your position with tenant mentality.  You can take charge help the seller to help you for the best possible outcome."

   We hope these tips have been helpful. Do you have anything to add to this list?

Crazy Hazy Appraisal Madness

Hi Folks,
   Hope your week is coming along great, so far.

   Well, considering the fact that we put a man on the moon and that we have found cures to a vast amount of the illnesses that have plagued mankind, you would think we would have this appraisal thing licked by now, right? Well, not exactly !

   To bolster this argument, this morning, I read a story on Yahoo Finance about a couple that were looking to purchase a specific home, and who shelled out $1600 for 7 appraisals, each of which was different than the other...and some of them by substantial amounts. Ultimately, due to this fiasco, the couple wound up renting the home that they actually wanted to purchase, but could not due to the scattered and lower appraisal(s).

   Since a majority of the trades on the stock exchange are done via computer, isn't there a way to have a universally-accepted appraisal program that spits out a figure? Perhaps there can be 3 programs (as with credit scores/FICO), with a Low, Middle, and a High. In that case, lenders can choose to accept the middle price, an average, or some other computation. I realize that my Appraiser friends are turning bright red with anger, but it should be a system that is created, organized, and computed by Appraisers, and they would still need to go on-site to verify all features of the property.

   Please don't yell at me for this one...but I am a stickler for automating procedures to minimize variation and errors. What are your thoughts on this proposal?

Have a Great Day, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !

UPDATED: Private Money...Any Available For Real Estate Deals?

Hi Folks,

   Happy Mid-Week to everyone, and welcome back.

   When we posted on the topic, "Best Markets For Commercial Real Estate Investing", we had a few requests to cover the topic of "Private Money", so as per your request, that is our topic for today!

   We spoke with 3 respected figures in the field to gauge their feeling on the topic. All 3 of them seem to agree that there is private money out there that is available for Real Estate deals, and we present their viewpoints below.

   Alfred Miller, President, Private Lending Solutions, LLC, states that, "Capital isn't scarce; vision is. There is tons of money available for real estate deals.", but says that he wants his, "money invested in solid deals (diamond in the rough)!" and the deals can be either residential or commercial.

   Vernon Martin, a commercial appraiser with American Property Research, who specializes in serving private lenders (96% of his work is for private lenders), says that, "There's no shortage of money waiting to be lent, but there also seems to be a shortage of credit-worthy deals.", which is similar to what Miller has said. "Most loan applications to private lenders are for refinancing deals which are already over leveraged, so there is no way the borrower can pay off existing debt at a safe loan-to-value ratio", says Martin.

   Martin also says that private lenders are, "very interested in financing REO purchases by new investors.", and provides an example, where last week, he worked "on a $35 million construction loan that is being purchased for only $5.2 million. The private lender feels safe in lending $2.8 million. The difference is that loans can be underwritten at today's market values without any disappointment to the borrowers.". Martin points out that some private lenders are looking overseas for deals in potentially "stronger markets" (i.e., "Canada, Australia, Fiji, Barbados, South Africa, Mexico, Costa Rica and Jamaica.")

   Dennis P. Fassett, a Real Estate Investor who interacts with many sources of private money, says that, "there's quite a bit of private money out there. But it's gotten more difficult to get to, despite what the late night gurus want people to believe.", which he attributes to, "the stock market crash and Bernie Madoff scandal". The impact of the crash and the scandal had a few ripple effect impacts on private lending, Fassett says, such as, "with people out of the market, there is a lot more money on the sidelines looking for a reasonable rate of return", and "the Bernie Madoff scandal has made a lot of people quite wary of where they invest their money.",and says that, it's ironic that the scandal has also helped make local real estate investing more attractive, because the investor can go drive by the asset that they either lent against or have an equity piece of."

   Fassett provides a hint into the mentality of the private investors. He finds that, "the private investors that I deal with are looking for a track record for one and a sense of stability by me as well. I'm fortunate that I have couple of dozen deals and now own or control 54 rental units in nice areas that are all doing well. I had one investor tell me that one of the reasons that he invests with me is because I have a whole lot to lose if I screw up in terms of reputation in the community.", and he continues to say that he's also finding that, "the direct approach to getting private money doesn't work anymore, as people are getting pitched to death about everything under the sun, so I have switched to an oblique approach that focuses on drawing people into being interested in my business to the point where they ask questions and close themselves."

   As the recession lingers on, Michael Stark, a licensed real estate broker in California, is clear about the future. "The greatest transfer of wealth since the Depression is underway.". Where this will ultimately channel the private funds is yet to be seen, however, we all hope and pray that it stokes our housing market and the economy. Comments are welcomed !

Have a Great Day, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !
