Many in the default servicing industry are preparing for the next wave or waves of foreclosures to hit the market. In many areas of the country like here in San Diego this will be a welcoming event. That’s right, welcoming. In many price ranges and in many areas of San Diego County California the inventory has had buyers looking at some pretty slim pickings. Many of the first time homebuyers trying to take advantage of the 8,000 first time home buyer tax credit are left in backup offer position to the cash offers. These first time home buyers also come in second place to offers with conventional loans with lots of buyer money in the deal. Some of the reasons for this are that the asset managers and banks like to accept the cash offers and large downs because they have less of a chance of falling out of escrow due to loans falling apart and appraisals not coming in at loan value. A symptom of the market.Foreclosure moratoriums are being lifted in some areas of the country. California for instance has the California Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Act that was signed by the Governor on February 20, 2009. The California Foreclosure Prevention Act modifies the foreclosure process to provide additional time for borrowers to work out loan modifications while providing an exemption for mortgage loan servicers that have implemented a comprehensive loan modification program. Civil Code Section 2923.52 requires an additional 90 day period beyond the period already provided before a Notice of Sale can be given in order to allow all parties to pursue a loan modification to prevent foreclosure of loans meeting certain criteria identified in that section. A mortgage loan servicer who has implemented a comprehensive loan modification program may file an application for exemption from the provisions of Civil Code Section 2923.52. Approval of this application provides the mortgage loan servicer an exemption from the additional 90-day period before filing the Notice of Sale when foreclosing on real property as designated by this Section.This next wave of foreclosures as it’s called by many in the default servicing industry has been described by some in the know as a Tidal Wave or Tsunami. Many are wondering what effect it will have on the fragile real estate markets throughout the United States. I welcome the wave and the faster we get through this stagnant inventory the better off the whole real estate and economic environment will be. This elephant in the room, the massive foreclosures that are not being put on the market has to be dealt with. Let’s push through and push on and get through this and on to the next real estate market. I’ll take and sell as many assets as I can to help with the situation.
