THE ORANGE COUNTY REAL ESTATE MARKET:

Orange County homeowner options: Clark Group: Keller Williams: Preventing Foreclosure

As of April 2014, over 11.7% of Orange County homeowners are 'underwater' on their home: their loan balance(s) are greater than the value of their home. The Clark Group works with many homeowners on reviewing their options: with so many Orange County homeowners owing more on their home than it is currently valued at, we find that timely, accurate information is most important so that one can make an informed decision. Unfortuneately, for many, their choices become limited by the banks' lack of progress of a loan modification or principal reduction request - and the banks have begun foreclosure proceedings.
(Click here for a chart showing the California Foreclosure Process.)

There are many options available - over a dozen - but not every option may be right for you. We are very experienced at working with Orange County homeowners in distress. If you have missed, or anticipate missing, mortgage payments, the Clark Group can help. Call us at 949-285-1207: all information will be held in the strictest of confidence.

More Free Orange County Homeowner Solution Workshops Being Planned:

Not able to attend one of our workshops? Call Bruce Clark at 949-285-1207, email us, or sign-up for our mailing list for notification of all upcoming events, to reserve a seat at one of our free homeowner workshops, or to set-up a private consultation. Always seek legal counsel and a tax opinion before attempting to pursue a short sale, or modify a home loan. A real estate agent cannot give you legal or tax advice.

Reasons to Avoid Foreclosure:

  • Many current and prospective employers run credit checks: a foreclosure can put a current position in jeopardy. Also, foreclosure is one of the top items that will put a potential new hire in jeopardy.
  • Security clearances, government positions, military and law enforcement, banking, financial services: many employers reconsider security clearances and jobs positions should one be foreclosed on.
  • You could end up with a much higher tax liability in a foreclosure than could result in a properly negotiated short sale since, in most cases, cancelled debt will be higher.
  • Credit: it will be much tougher - and take much longer - to buy a home with a foreclosure on ones record.
  • You may end up with a Deficiency Judgment (the bank may pursue you for the amount you owe less what they received at auction).

Articles of Note:

Here are articles and websites dealing with short sales, mortgage fraud, loan modification, and deficiency judgment that we found very informative:

  • Direct distressed sellers to finance, tax, and legal professionals
  • Limit risk for all parties, including limiting financial risk to the seller(s) after the sale of their home
  • Protect buyers and their funds

Bruce Clark and the Clark Group of Keller Williams: Our Successful Sellers Marketing System

One of the most significant statistics when selecting an agent to market your home for sale is their average Original Listing Price (OLP) to Sales Price (SP) percentage. (The OLP takes into account all price reductions, so is a more accurate way of measuring an agents' success at getting top dollar for a home and working with the seller on pricing the home correctly.) A low OLP to SP is a sign that the agent either does not do their homework prior to consulting with the seller about the listing price - or that the agent 'buys' listings. Either way, the net effect is the home will probably stay on the market longer and sell for less than if it were priced effectively from day one. (Studies show that a home improperly priced typically sells for up to 6.5% less than it should have had it been priced correctly initially.)

We are very proud of our OLP to SP: we pay close attention to the market, inventory, absorption rate, and much more, which is why we have such a great track record of succesfully selling a home quickly and for top dollar.

We pulled the below OLP-to-SP data directly from the CRMLS (California Regional Multiple Listing Service):

* 2010: 101.08%
* 2011: 98.92%
* 2012: 100.03%
* 2013: 101.31%
* 4-year avg. of OLP-to-SP: 100.34%!
