Strategic Default – Is it for you?
If you are considering whether to “strategically default” on your mortgage, be sure to look into all of your options. Results of a recent study estimates that 36% of Americans think that walking away from their mortgage is a viable solution when they owe more on their home than it is worth. With one in four American homeowners “underwater”, you are not alone.
In a “strategic default”, homeowners simply stop paying their mortgage when they owe more than the home is worth. They just walk away, not understanding that the inevitable foreclosure carries consequences they haven’t considered.
3 Reasons to Question the “Strategy” in “Strategic Default”:
1. Defaulting on purpose is not strategic. Options including short sale, mortgage modification and refinancing (just to name a few) are worth consideration before you expose yourself to credit issues, current and future employment challenges, security clearance problems and possible debt collections which can result from a foreclosure.
2. Waiting periods to obtain a new mortgage are considerably less in a short sale vs. a foreclosure–possibly as much as five years less.
3. A foreclosure will appear on your credit report and affect your financial situation for many years to come. That will be inconvenient, to say the least, every time you apply for a home loan, auto loan, new job, and many other occasions.
Fortunately, you have options available to avoid foreclosure and protect your financial future. Always seek legal advice before deciding on your strategy.

What do you do if default on your mortgage is imminent? Countless homeowners are asking that very thing! The following 8 tips will help answer this burning question and guide you to resolution!
1. Act Quickly! - Before you can no longer pay your mortgage, call the bank and tell them that default of the mortgage is imminent. This action will get their attention and get the ball rolling toward resolution!
2. Keep calling the lender – DON’T GIVE UP! - Some banks are more responsive than others. If you are dealing with a lending institution that you feel aren’t giving you answers quickly enough, keep calling! Be persistent.
3. Have all financial records in order - You will need:
- Tax Returns for the last 2 years
- W-2′s or 1099′s for the last 2 years
- Last 30 days paycheck stubs
- Last 90 days bank statements
- Personal financial statements
- Hardship letter detailing the circumstances that have lead to the inability to continue paying the mortgage
4. Talk to a HUD Approved Foreclosure Intervention Specialist. - This is a free service through www.hud.gov.
5. Consult with the loan officer who originated the loan. – If the loan officer who originated the loan is still available, contact them to see if they have any programs that can help.
6. Ask an attorney to send a letter to the bank. – Often, a letter from an attorney will get the banks attention faster and compel them to act on your case in a more timely fashion. Attorney’s fees can vary but you can often find an attorney who will write the letter for $100-$200.
7. Ask a licensed Real Estate Agent for assistance. - In this economy, Real Estate Agents work closely with banks to assist their clients in financial distress concerning their home mortgages. A licensed Real Estate Agent can help you through the process and may have personal experience dealing with your bank!
8. Contact external help! - If you are still not happy with the bank’s responsiveness or answers you are getting, contact the Controller of the Currency at www.occ.gov or, if dealing with a national bank, visit www.helpwithmybank.gov for guidance.
6 Tips For Trying To Get Your Short Sale Approved
Let’s face it, Short Sales are the new reality. We can no more ignore them than you can ignore that excruciating headache you get when the weather changes! We can’t escape them, so lets discuss how to deal with them with the least amount of pain and in the shortest time! If you are considering a short sale as an option for getting out from underneath your home, there are a few things you should consider and do as you start this process. These “tips” are exactly that, they are ideas, suggestions, things to think about, they are NOT legal advice and should not be construed as such! With that being said, “Tip” #1 is to consult an attorney and/or CPA before proceeding with a short sale. A good Realtor will help you navigate through the process and handle the negotiations, but they can not and should not tell you how to proceed and what your “best” financial options are.
#2 Act Quickly ~ Get on the phone to your lender. Ask specifically to be transferred to the “loss mitigation” department (they will know what you are talking about). Then tell the person on the other end of the line that “default is imminent” and ask them how to proceed with a short sale.
#3 Keep Calling ~ Don’t give up. Inevitably, they will loose your file or some form that they request you send them. Mark your calendar and call them 2-3 times a week to follow up.
#4 Have All Financial Records In Order ~ Here is a list of items you will need to gather. A) Tax Returns (2 years) B) W-2′s or 1099′s (2 years) c) Last 30 days of pay check stubs D) Last 90 days of Bank Statements (both sides) E) Personal Financial Statement – you will need to provide your own personal version of a profit and loss statement. F) Hardship Letter – This letter should detail the circumstances that have lead to you needing a short sale. You must have a legitimate hardhship. Also keep in mind, that as each 3o days go by, you will need to update your pay stubs and bank statements.
#5 Talk to a HUD-Approved Foreclosure Intervention Specialist ~ You can visit the HUD website at www.hud.gov
#6 Contact the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency ~ This is the department that regulates the banks and how the disperse monies. If you are having trouble getting an answer go to their website at www.occ.gov and link to www.helpwithmybank.gov
These are just 6 quick tips for you to think about. Short Sales are not fun and they are not easy, but there is a benefit to getting them done vs. foreclosing. If you are thinking about embarking on a short sale, you need to have a team of agents, negotiators, escrow officers, title reps and more, on your side. Call us today for a confidential appointment to determine if a short sale is right for you.
