$4.5 Billion on Delinquent Debt ready to Hit the Market

$4.5 Billion on Delinquent Debt ready to Hit the Market

Three of the nation’s largest mortgage lenders have put sizable packages of nonperforming and reperforming mortgage loans on the realestatehousemoneymi600-resize-600x338 market for investors to buy, according to New York Mission Capital Advisors.

Bank of America has put up approximately $2.56 billion worth of delinquent debt for sale, including nonperforming loans, reperforming mortgages (those in which the borrower was 90 days or more behind but has resumed making payments), and home equity lines of credit (HELOCs), according to Mission Capital.

Citigroup has put up $1.8 billion worth of reperforming mortgages for sale, and JPMorgan Chase is looking for a buyer for $143 million worth of nonperforming mortgage loans, Mission Capital said. Last month, Freddie Mac announced that it intended to sell $410 million worth of delinquent mortgage loans. But there has been so much of a demand that the suppliers cannot keep up, Mission Capital said.

Secured Property Taxes Due on November 1st.

Secured Property Taxes Due on November 1st.

All property owners in California must pay taxes that are based on the value of their homes or commercial property. Property taxes are paid in two installments. The fiscal year’s first property tax bills are mailed out on October 1st; the first installment is due by November 1st, and is considered delinquent on December 10th. The second installment is due February 1st, and this payment is considered delinquent after April 10th. Property Taxes Due Now copy

For many California taxpayers, the property tax bill is one of the largest tax payments they make each year. For thousands of California local governments—K–12 schools, community colleges, cities, counties, and special districts—revenue from property tax bills represents the foundation of their budgets.

 

A California property tax bill includes a variety of different taxes and charges.

Among them,

  • The 1 percent rate established by Proposition 13 (1978). Under Proposition 13, a referendum passed in 1978, property taxes may not exceed 1 percent of the assessed value of your home. And cannot rise by an amount greater than the rate of inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index, up to a limit of 2 percent a year.
  • Additional tax rates to pay for local voter–approved debt.
  • Property assessments.
  • Mello–Roos taxes.
  • Parcel taxes.

Boost Your Home’s Selling Price!

Boost Your Home’s Selling Price!

If you’re looking to sell your home for top dollar, in addition to “Location, Location, Location” there are some other suggestions you may benefit from, to get top dollar for your home!    child and father painting wall together

As the saying goes, “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.” While curb appeal gets buyers in the door, sellers who want to move their homes quickly need to take other steps.

The strategy varies by neighborhood and market conditions, but staging a house to appeal to the maximum number of buyers can make difference in how fast the home sells.

If you have a limited budget, here are some tips that can make your house to sell for a top dollar:

  • Add color to you landscape by either replacing flower beds or potted flowers, along with fresh sod.
  • Replacing light fixtures and plumbing fixtures will give your home a modern touch for a minimal investment.
  • Consider removing popcorn ceilings; however you need to be careful because popcorn ceilings of pre-1979 homes are likely to contain asbestos, and you need someone licensed to remove it.
  • Remove window treatments, unless they are current and high-end. That cuts the risk of turning off would-be buyers who don’t share your taste, and uncovered windows that will let more light into the rooms.
  • If you’re using your dining or a bedroom as an office for example, turn it back to their original use.
  • Replace dirty or worn carpet, you’re better off removing the carpet if there are hardwood floors underneath.
  • Unclutter your house by packing away items that you will not use on an every day basis. You want the new family to envision themselves living in the home.
  • A deep cleaning before you put your home on the market is a must, so everything shines.
  • Repaint all rooms in neutral colors. A fresh coat of paint also makes the house look newer and more modern.

With a few simple, low-cost tweaks, you can significantly enhance your house’s curb appeal. Focus on low cost improvements. Since every dollar counts, devote your time in renovations that’ll bring you a return.

La Venta de Casas muestran estadísticas alentadoras

La Venta de Casas muestran estadísticas alentadoras

Las Ventas de Casas  existentes, excluyendo las ventas angustiadas, muestran  actualmente estadísticas muy alentadoras.

home-salesEsto, según reportes de Trulia y de la Asociacion Nacional de Realtors, estas estaban en el 80 por ciento de su normalidad en Agosto.  El reporte de Trulia mostró también que los precios presentaban un 3.4 por ciento de devaluación en el tercer trimestre, una mejora marcada comparada con una devaluación del 13.5 por ciento en el momento que estallo la burbuja hipotecaria. Esto significa que los precios ahora están tres cuartas partes camino a la normalidad.

Las tasas de morosidad y las ejecuciones hipotecarias también han mejoraron mucho. Según Trulia y Black Knight la tasa de morosidad y las ejecuciones hipotecarias a nivel nacional bajaron dramáticamente volviendo casi a un 74 por ciento de su normalidad en Agosto. La disminución en los atrasos hipotecarios y ejecuciones hipotecarias han ayudado a estabilizar notablemente el sistema financiero y el sector vivienda en las áreas que fueron afectadas por la crisis hipotecaria.

Mortgage Rates slightly higher

Mortgage Rates slightly higher

Finding-a-refinance-rate-for-your-homeMortgage rates are higher today, leaving September as one of only 3 months this year with noticeable upward movement.

And today was an exception to that recent trend, but it’s tempered by the fact that yesterday’s gains were the best of the month.

The only downside is that the most prevalently-quoted conforming 30yr fixed rate for top tier borrowers remains 4.25% whereas it would have likely moved to 4.125% if rate went the other direction today.

These movement considerations may be small scale compared to what lies ahead.  Several big tickets events are coming up in the second half of this week and they stand a good chance to increase the level of volatility.

Why NOW is a great time to buy a house!

Why NOW is a great time to buy a house!

There has never been a better time to buy a home; the advantage is on the buyer side. Buying is cheaper than renting in most markets. More people want to be homeowners, even younger buyers.  A recent Fannie Mae survey of younger renters and buyers finds out that younger renters prefer owning. They don’t want to be renters – 90% would prefer to be homeowners. Family Savings

Mortgage rates have dropped across all loan types including FHA loans, USDA loans, VA loans, and conventional loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and 30-year rates are at their best levels of 2014.

Inventory is down but so is the buyer pool. That means prices may be coming down. You may well have less competition for homes right now, especially if you’re in the ultra-competitive first time buyer market. This means that your chances of finding a home—and getting it for the right price—look good.

Credit and affordability issues remain. If you are financially and emotionally prepared, it makes sense to write a check list of what you need to get approved for a mortgage; order your credit reports; get your FICO score; pay stubs and bank statements; shop for the best mortgage rates; cobble together a down payment; meet with your choice of lender, and find out what your monthly payments will be for the home of your dreams, then GO for it!
