Foreclosures Up 23 Percent – Sell My House

May 2, 2008

The 2008 first quarter results are in and they do not look good. Foreclosures are up 23 percent from the first quarter in 2007. This marks record foreclosures across the nation. Now one in every 195 house holds is in some sate of foreclosure.

We are only four months into the year and already over 156,000 home owners have lost their homes to foreclosure. The real scary thing is that the foreclosure rate is not slowing down, it is actually speeding up. This means we will see more foreclosures each and every month. There were only 4 states in the nation that did not have increasing rates of foreclosure.

So where are the hardest hit areas? Nevada, California, Florida, and Arizona top the list with the largest amount of foreclosures and the trend does not look to be slowing anytime soon. One out of every 54 homes in Nevada is in a sate of foreclosure. This is amazing considering they are still one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Many people moving to Las Vegas and other areas of Nevada are renting until they see the market bottom.

Many people are wondering if the newly passed government programs created to help stop those falling into foreclosure is helping. Despite all the effort the government has been putting into new bills and laws to help stop the foreclosure nightmare, it just does not have a chance against all the default loans. It is like sending trying to stop a freight train with one box car. The laws that are being created are taking time to create and are only helping a few home owners. They have no chance stopping the foreclosure momentum.

Even more disturbing is the fact that over 360 billion dollars worth of mortgages with adjustable interest rates is going to reset in 2008. This is only going to increase the number of foreclosures across the nation.

So what can you do if you live in Las Vegas, Stockton California, Detroit, or any other area and you are starting to loose your house to foreclosure. There is a simple and easy answer, sell your house. Now you might say, easier said than done right? Well it is in fact that easy. Even though there are not many home buyers looking for houses you still can sell your house.

The best way to sell your house if you are falling behind on payments or see the foreclosure monster coming your way is to contact a local professional home buyer. You see, there are many ways to sell houses and professional home buyers make a living from helping people sell their house, at no cost to you I might add.

Even if you owe more for your house than what it is worth, you can sell your house. Local home buyers will work with the banks to release the loans against your home and they will buy it from you, all this at no out of pocket expense. The problem is many people do not realize that professional home buyers exist, they think the only way to sell a house is through a realtor or for sale by owner, not true.

So, if you need to sell your house to stop foreclosure contact your local home buyer and receive a free offer on your house today. If you contact them today you could have an offer on your house within 48 hours. They can explain to you your home selling options and possible solutions. Then you just choose the right one for your situation.

Sell and Rent Back My House

April 28, 2008

Lets face it, the real estate market has changes and many of you got caught with high mortgage payments and now have a house that you can not sell, or can you? When the real estate market slows, the demand for houses goes down and appreciation stops. The majority of home buyers wait on the side lines for the real estate market to come back around.

If you own a home that you can not afford then you need to sell now, not a few years from now when the home buyers decide to buy. Well know that you still do have options. One great option to sell your house now, is to sell it to a real estate investor and then rent it back. Yes some real estate professionals do buy houses and then allow the home owner to rent it back.

The sell and rent back process is fairly simple actually. If your home qualifies then you sell your house to a professional home buyer, keep living in the house, pay rent, and if you decide you want to purchase the house in the future you have the option to.

The rent back option is great for home owners who are over extended and can not afford their mortgage payment. Possibly they purchased a home and now their mortgage is adjusting and they can not afford the new payment. Just contact your local home buyer, ask them to buy your house and let you rent it back. If your home selling situation works for the real estate investor then you will have no problems.

Another great thing about the sell and rent back home selling option is that you can find out if your selling situation qualifies quickly and painlessly. All offers by professional real estate home buyers are no obligation offers which means you have nothing to loose.

Who knows, you could sell your house this month, get your finances in order and buy back your how in a few months. Like I said the process is simple and can be done quickly. Besides, when the offer is a no obligation offer, you have nothing to loose.
