How is a Mountain View Probate Sale Different From a Regular Sale
A probate sale is not the same as a regular sale, but unless court confirmation is required the differences are not that great. It is a world away from a short sale or foreclosure.
In a probate sale, the owner of a property has passed away and the home is being sold to settle an estate. The owner may have had a will, or may not have had a…Continue

How is a Palo Alto Short Sale Different From a Regular Sale
A short sale is not the same as a regular sale and the differences are very significant. It is not a simple process and if you are buying or selling a short sale you should be working with an agent who knows what her or she is doing.
In a short sale the seller owes more on the home than it is worth. The seller needs to ask the lien…Continue

Have you ever gotten a Save the Date invitation for an upcoming event? They are great because they help you plan for the future, and bring excitement for the future into the mix. I got a lovely e-mail today from my negotiator on a Santa Clara Short Sale Listing. He said that he was just waiting for management to approve his approval and he should have something in writing to me in a few days. This was very nice for a number…Continue

The answer is, ask your lawyer? When a home is being sold through a trust, the heirs of the estate need to be informed. If there are any objections they need a chance to express their concerns. It does not mean that the home can not be sold, just that whatever the objection is needs to be dealt with, sometimes through court action.
There heirs can agree to to forgo the 45 day waiting period for the Notice of proposed…Continue

I frequently hear the question "Can I short sell my house if I have not stopped making payments." The answer to this depends on your lender, the investor on the loan, and the phases of the moon.

Deaths in families are always hard. They can bring out both the best and worst in a family. There is often a combination of sorrow and a bubbling to the surface of many past, and normal family rivalries and childhood issues. Every estate must have an executor and this executor can be anyone the owner of the estate appoints if the estate has been put in trust. If there is no trust but there is a will and the will names an executor that person must be affirmed by the probate court. If there…Continue

Wells Fargo has a call center which is where you call to initiate a short sale, and then to get updates before they assign a negotiator. But what sets them apart from some other banks' call centers is that they stay involved throughout the short sale process. So, if you call or e-mail your negotiator and he or she is not available you can ask the call center…Continue

Well, it has taken a lot of months, and 4 buyers, but I finally got approval today from Chase for a short sale in the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park. So far everyone is delighted, and hopefully we will make it through the loan and property contingencies.
Short sales are sold "As-Is", period. Banks do not allow any credits, repairs, or other consessions for things that are wrong. That is why I try to get…Continue
