Can be a valuable resource for potential buyers and people who invest in foreclosure properties. Loans that are insured or guaranteed by a Government-Sponsored Enterprise (GSE) such as Fannie Mae (FNMA) or Freddie Mac (FHLMC) or by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or Veterans Administration (VA) are managed until they are transferred to those entities by PNC Mortgage.
Furthermore, over the years I have seen homes in the pre-foreclosure process that never get foreclosed on. Many times the mortgage gets paid up to date, or at least within the two most recent payments due, and the property emerges from the foreclosure process.
Facing a foreclosure can be daunting prospect for people in trouble with their mortgages, especially when they are unsure of what to do. Across the country, six out of 10 homeowners questioned said they wished they understood their mortgage and its terms better.
Foreclosure by judicial sale, more commonly known as judicial foreclosure, which is available in every state (and required in many), involves the sale of the mortgaged property under the supervision of a court, with the proceeds going first to satisfy the mortgage; then other lien holders; and, finally, the mortgagor/borrower if any proceeds are left.
To further my point, even if all of the foreclosures that are currently bank-owned homes all hit the MLS today in this Georgia county, foreclosures would still comprise less than 10 percent of total inventory in the market, compared with peaks as high as 30 percent to 40 percent a few years ago.
