Foreclosures and Short Sales

Warning: Be suspicious of any company that says they will guarantee to you that no matter what your mortgage is, they can stop your foreclosure. Any company that requires an upfront fee, tells you that they will take over your mortgage payments, tells you to not contact your lender, or asks you to sign over your property deed should be avoided. Most of these companies are scammers that are looking to take advantage of the increasing number of homeowners across the US that are in trouble and don't know their options.

Real Estate Tips

Bargain Properties >Less Than Market Value

Real estate ads are sprinkled with terminology that often puzzles consumers who don't have applied knowledge of housing industry lingo. Internet homebuyers find that information about properties is often presented in abbreviated form or unfamiliar language. Shedding a little light on some basic real estate terms may help you locate a home that is available at a very affordable price.

'MLS' refers to the Multiple Listing Service, which is the national database of listed homes for sale. Some real estate web sites allow homebuyers to preview local listings that appear on the MLS. If you see a real estate ad for a "FSBO", it means that the property is for sale by the owner, who is declining the services of a Realtor. A home listed "As-is" is being sold in its existing condition. A "bargain sale" home is priced at less than its market value, and a "fixer-upper" is priced low because it needs refurbishing.
