Local Broker Offers Free Resources to Struggling Homeowners

With More Than One in Seven Mortgages Not Being Paid, Local Broker Offers Free Resources to Struggling Homeowners

In response to community needs, new website educates struggling homeowners on options to foreclosure.

MESA, AZ – May 25, 2010 – Local real estate broker and Certified Distressed Property Expert®, Joe Martin of RE/MAX Diamond, responded to new mortgage delinquency numbers by creating a new information website for Phoenix Metro, Scottsdale and East Valleyarea homeowners facing financial hardships. contains vital facts about the options available to distressed homeowners.

By offering free information on more beneficial options, I know I can help our community’s homeowners.”

The Mortgage Bankers Association’s First-Quarter 2010 National Delinquency Survey announced that more than 14 percent of mortgage loans are not current on payments. More specifically, 10 percent of prime loans and more than 40 percent of subprime loans are delinquent.

What are your thoughts regarding the HAFA program for Short Sales?

From April’s Monthly “Ask Joe” column

My first thought is that of hope. I sincerely hope the majority of homeowners who currently allow their homes to go to foreclosure without ever exploring their options to avoid foreclosure will educate themselves and take advantage of the many viable alternatives available to them.

Let’s face it, as easy as it may seem to just walk away from a home, the haunt of a foreclosure goes on for years to come effecting credit and even employment, in some cases. Many people are not aware that foreclosure even can affect their security clearance levels and future employment. Foreclosure is certainly not the best option, particularly with the advent of HAFA.

Obviously, foreclosure can’t always be avoided, but knowing your options before going into an “ostrich mode” would well be worth the time invested, particularly in light of HAFA, which will even provide relocation assistance money and eliminate the hovering concern of a deficiency judgment when a short payoff has been accepted.

Personally, I’m so adamant about informing the public about their options, I’ve setup a “Home Rescue Network™” at to provide homeowners who owe more on their homes than they are worth or are behind on their payments a comprehensive list of their options to avoid foreclosure and a quick questionnaire to help them determine if they are eligible for the new government programs available.

With our National network of top agents around the country, we’re able to refer homeowners to the experts in their area to further educate and help them rescue their homes from the black hole of foreclosure. Homeowners or Agents who would like more information can email me at

I believe HAFA will help simplify and streamline the use of short sales and the deeds‐in‐lieu of foreclosure options with the use of the top features HAFA possesses including:

1. Providing financial incentives to borrowers, servicers AND investors
2. Requiring servicers to release borrowers from future liability for the debt (no deficiency judgments)
3. Using standard processes, documents and timeframes to help streamline and standardize the normally daunting short sale process
4. Complementing HAMP by providing workable alternatives to homeowners who are HAMP eligible
5. Eliminating the need for additional analysis on eligibility by utilizing financial and hardship information collected in conjunction with HAMP
6. Allowing the homeowner to receive pre-approved short payoff terms prior to the property being listed

With over 11,000,000 homeowners in negative equity positions on their mortgages (that’s roughly 24% of all properties with a mortgage), I look forward to seeing what HAFA will be able to do to help borrowers avoid foreclosure and how the goals of HAFA to standardize the process flow, minimize the performance timelines and standardize documentation of short sales will play out.

For single family homes for sale in Mesa, foreclosures dominate Mesa home sales

mesa-home-for-sale Looking for a single family house for sale in Mesa? There are plenty of them, but if you want to know what is actually selling, those are the foreclosures.

There are currently 1,726 active single family homes for sale in Mesa according to the MLS at time of this writing. Of those, only 290, or only 17% are foreclosure properties. So if I told you that there were 602 single family homes in Mesa that sold in the last month, that should mean roughly 102 of them were foreclosures. Not even close.

Of the 602 Mesa homes that sold last month, 294, or nearly 50% were foreclosures. The main reason foreclosures are selling is because of their price. The homes are generally listed below what a private sale is listed and is setting the market value for all homes on the market.

Another interesting statistic from these numbers is the very low supply of foreclosure properties on the market. with only 290 active and 294 sold in the last month, there is only a one month supply of inventory which is leading to a seller’s market.

There has been a lot of talk about a "shadow inventory" or foreclosures being held off the market on purpose by the banks. These numbers show the market could be flooded with this "shadow inventory" if it exist and still not crash. There are more than enough buyers out there right now for the inventory available.
