The Second Step In Fixing The Flawed Northeast OH Short Sale Process

Northeast OH – In our last post, we agreed that the first step in fixing the flawed short sale process is to acknowledge what the problem is.

We agreed that the problem is that the lenders and investors are losing billions on defaulted loans.

In addition, American Homeowners are losing billions on declining home values caused by a housing market decline caused by foreclosures.

The next step is measuring the damage and finding ways to fix it. Here is how we suggest that by done.

To analyze the problem properly, someone will need to study the results. Lenders need to start tracking the results of their actions.

The projected outcome from each of the outcomes should be recorded. Each defaulted loan will have several stats.

First will be the expected outcome if they had agreed to a loan modification. They find that out by asking the homeowner what they are willing to pay monthly.

They plug that into an amortization calculator and find out the mortgage amount that payment equates to. For example a homeowner says that can pay $1,500 a month for the next 30 years.

That equates a $264,182 mortgage at 5.5% interest. Measurement #1: Loan Modification: $264,000 could be realized by accepting that loan modification.

If the house is marketed as a short sale, then any and all offers should be recorded. Let’s say a buyer offers to buy the home for $249,000. That would give us Measurement #2: Short Sale Return: $249,000.

The short sale is rejected. The home is foreclosed and sold as a foreclosure. It is put on the market and ends up selling for $218,000. That gives us our final measurement.

Measurement #3: Foreclosure Return: $218,000.

Now we can all see solid numbers on the results. If that lender did reject the loan mod and short sale, then that process needs to be fixed.

With proper measurement there is no more guessing. Solid, pragmatic decisions can be made to fix the problem.
