Marketing: It’s All about the Numbers So what does it take to get a homeowner who is in foreclosure to actually call you? There are a lot of people in the sales industry who will employ certain marketing strategies to get customers, and that totally makes sense. But at the end of the day it boils down to this: it’s a numbers game. And it is, isn’t it? Whether you’re trying to buy houses or doing marketing to homeowners, the more prospect clients you have, the more chances you’ll have to get positive results. Look at it this way: it’s like mining for gold. You don’t know where exactly the gold is, but if you have a larger area to dig through, you’ll more likely to succeed. Do marketing, marketing, and more marketing. It’s that simple. It’s just sensible to diversify and actually utilize different marketing approaches. It won’t do much good, however, if you get stuck analyzing foreclosure...

Practical Advice on Judging a Foreclosure File People usually think that the first thing to do when dealing with foreclosure properties is to decide which one to actually consider buying. Actually, it’s not. The first thing to do is do NOT even attempt to pass judgement just by looking at a foreclosure file. It simply doesn’t make sense to try distinguishing the difference between a good prospect and a bad one simply by the figures and details available on hand. If you’re considerably knowledgeable on the matter, you may be able to discern which properties have more equity than another – but that doesn’t mean you’re going to get a nice profit just because of that. Analyzing data doesn’t cut it; actually writing an offer for a property does. For example, you may consider a house that looks like it’s a great deal on paper – maybe it boasts of a lot of equity –...

The Purchase Offer - Three Important Clauses
Jarek Bucholc ||Street Smart RE InvestingJarek Bucholc ||Street Smart RE Investing   Updated April 18, 2018 9468 0 2 0 1 0
Many home buyers, and even some investors, seem to approach a real estate purchase offer as just an opening of negotiations. It can be this, of course, but it is also a legally binding contract the moment the seller signs it. You don't get to change the terms after that, or back out of the deal. That is, unless you have the right language in the offer to begin with. Purchase Offer Clauses To Protect You 1. Inspections This is perhaps one of the more important clauses in a purchase offer, and is common. But make sure you get the wording right. Ask for help if necessary, but the point is to make it possible to cancel the offer if any inspections show problems you don't want to deal with. Such a clause might read something like this; "This offer is contingent on the buyer's approval of the results of a termite inspection...

What is Foreclosure?
Jarek Bucholc ||Street Smart RE InvestingJarek Bucholc ||Street Smart RE Investing   Updated March 22, 2018 5608 0 2 0 0 0
Foreclosure is a court action taken by the mortgagee or the lender asking the court to cancel the equity of redemption to the mortgagor. The second and third mortgages should have a clause saying that if first is in default, the others are automatically in default too and they can take action against the borrower or the mortgagor. Redemption is the right of the mortgagor to have clear title to the property after paying the loan fully. Redemption period is usually provided to pay off interest, fees and back payments. There are basically two types of foreclosures. The first one is called Judicial. In this type of foreclosure, the mortgagee petitions the courts and begins a lawsuit against responsible parties. The second type is Non-judicial. With this, the power of sale has the processes covered in the mortgage documents. Lenders have the right to sell the property. On the power of sale process, happens quickly. It...

One of the most overlooked methods that homeowners may have available to save their homes from foreclosure is obtaining a specific type of loan called a reverse mortgage. Because of its limited applicability, it is not frequently discussed as an option, but it may provide certain foreclosure victims with one more valuable solution. A reverse mortgage is usually used by homeowners over the age of 62 who are trying to supplement their monthly income. Instead of paying a mortgage every month, the reverse mortgage will pay the homeowners. The payments can be taken in a number of ways; for example, the homeowners may receive one lump sum from the mortgage company, get a certain amount every month, or be given a line of credit to be used whenever it is needed. Even if there is already a mortgage on the property, a reverse mortgage can be used. The main consideration will be how...
