Need help with a deal!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all;

Jonathan Rexford, MC, or anyone else with some experience: I need some assistance to help out a homeowner in need. I would obviously give most of any profits to you; I would love to simply learn from the jedi masters out there!

A seller contacted me who needs help and is desperate. She is here in Columbus, OH. House listed for 150K, comps closer to 130 or maybe more (haven't done a detailed analysis yet) and she owes 138. The house was occupied to a lady who took it on a land contract but has moved out and hasn't paid the owner (the seller) for over 4-5 months. The house is in danger of being foreclosed on b/c of that. She owes roughly 7-8K. Payment is $1400/month.

I suspect she needs to speak with the bank to negotiate a short sale but I have no experience with this. A sub 2 is a possibility but she is quite behind and there is no equity. Perhaps having her pay part of the payment for a while would be a possibility.

I would be happy to turn this over and watch the deal unfold to learn how to deal with this. I would like to help her out. If anyone wants to take this on please let me know ASAP. Thanks!

As you already know, there isn't much here to work with. At best, it appears the homeowner has zero equity. At worst, she is upside down. Eliminates a lot of options, other than a short sale. Personally, I hate short sales. Too much bureaucracy to deal with. Shoot Rexford a line. He might be able to help.
