Whether To Invest On A Pre Foreclosed Or An REO Property?

Larry O. Doss Friday, January 15, 2010

If you are an investor looking to invest on a foreclosed property, then you may also want to consider whether to buy the Real Estate Owned property or the pre- foreclosed property that is still owned by the borrower. You may feel that investing on an REO property is a fairer deal as you will be assured with the title to the property and the insurance. Also you will have a security of the old owner not returning to claim back the property.

However, these features are not applicable when you buy a pre foreclosed home! But the real problem you will face when you want to invest on an REO... Read more

Do’s and Don’ts at a Real Estate Auction

Larry O. Doss Tuesday, January 12, 2010

The real estate auctions that happened before 2005 were more of trustee sales that took place in front of the house being auctioned. If you were to participate in those auctions, you would surely get a great deal, but there were drawbacks as well. If you won the bid with the highest amount then you were required to pay cash in full. Also you were not given an opportunity to inspect the house. There were also possibilities that the house had a lot of mortgages on it. All this and more kept many investors from participating.

Before you visit an auction site, question yourself as to why... Read more

Watch Out For Negative Equity

Larry O. Doss Thursday, December 10, 2009

Do you own a home which has negative equity and are wondering how this occurred? The answer is simple. Negative equity occurs when you purchase a home using a home loan and the home prices begin to decline due to economic slowdown. The home value now decreases below the value principally on mortgage. This condition is called negative equity. It can be calculated by taking the value of the home, less the balance on the remaining loan.

An important aspect in the performance of home loans in the third quarter of 2009 was the high resale of foreclosures. This came up to one fifth of the t... Read more

Larry O. Doss Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Recession’s over, but it doesn’t feel that way in capital area

It looks like the longest U.S. recession since the 1930s is over.

So why doesn’t it feel that way?

After four quarters of shrinking, the nation’s economy – as measured by its gross domestic product – grew 3.5 percent in the third quarter, the Commerce Department reported Thursday.

But the news did little to erase the gloom that has settled over Sacramento’s economic landscape like a thick tule fog.

Local businesses are keeping the umbrellas within arm&rsquo... Read more

Larry O. Doss Friday, September 4, 2009

Hats are off today to Sacramento’s Michael Choe, 43, a supervising engineer with the state Department of Toxic Substances Control. This week he earned his second appearance in Time magazine since 2005 – for making good calls in this crazed real estate market.

He rented for four years.
