Is a Bank Foreclosure on its way?

By / February 20, 2015 / News

Home

One of the saddest things to hear as a realtor is that someone is losing their home to the bank.  What a gut wrenching experience it must be for these families.  I have seen so many good people get into trouble when they start doing renovations that they ultimately cannot pay for.  Alternatively, some home owners get themselves into credit debt from buying through a "don't pay untill" payment plan.  If you find yourself in that situation, the worst thing you can do is to do nothing, or not answer the phone when the bank calls you.  The best way to deal with a missed mortgage payment is to call your bank as soon as possible and see what alternatives are available to you.  Banks do not want to take your home back so make sure you call and do not  let the problem get bigger and out of hand.  If there is no reasonable expectation that you will be able to continue to meet the mortgage payments then you need to contact a local realtor.  Be honest with your realtor that you need to sell sooner rather than later and price your home accordingly.  If your home is taken over by the bank, there are expensive fees that may eat up any equity that you have built up in your home, so...act fast as the longer you wait the worse it will become for you.   The link below is a great article on Foreclosure:

More than one reason to keep condo fees low

By / February 19, 2015 / Selling your home

Condos

Think that your condo fees only affect your monthly bank account?  Think again!  When your condominium apartment or townhome complex has higher than average monthly maintenance fees, it makes a negative impact on the sale price of your apartment or townhome.  Condo boards should find savings where they can and do the best they can to keep these costs reasonable.   The following link is to a Toronto Star article on this very subject:
