VENTURA, California – District Attorney Gregory D. Totten warned today that county residents should be extra vigilant about mortgage, forbearance, and loan modification scams as financial predators seek to exploit the current COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the economic fallout from the COVID-19 virus, last month alone, mortgage forbearance requests increased by approximately 2000 percent. Such conditions are ripe for financial predators seeking to exploit desperate homeowners with false promises of assistance to delay their overdue mortgage payments.

The District Attorney recommends the following tips to avoid becoming a victim of this type of fraud:
Never pay any person or business for mortgage or forbearance assistance, including the negotiation of a new, lower mortgage payment. It is unlawful for any entity to charge an advance fee to negotiate on a borrower’s behalf with a lender. Borrowers should contact their lender directly to discuss forbearance options, and never go through a third party.
Never sign a deed that transfers any portion of home ownership to another person or entity as part of a mortgage assistance or forbearance scheme.
Never make any portion of a mortgage payment to anyone other than your lender. Such payments are never passed on to the lender and this often unnecessarily triggers foreclosure proceedings that otherwise may never have commenced.
Never stop making mortgage payments to your lender on the advice of a mortgage or forbearance “expert.”
Be wary of mailed or telephonic advertisements promising mortgage or forbearance assistance. Legitimate assistance will not come to a borrower, it must instead be sought out.
Homeowners struggling to pay their mortgage payment should contact their lender directly
to learn what assistance programs may be available.

Perspective | How the coronavirus will change closings, home prices and what’s on the market

This is a very good article. Consistent with what we are seeing except a pullback in prices (yet).

So while the number of transactions are reduced, the quality of the transactions remains good.

You might be interested to know in the markets I track, there were 20 new listings and 21 new escrows over the weekend. Buyers are currently consuming the available inventory which is holding prices up for now.

At the end of the day, we still have an inventory shortage and more buyers than available inventory. As a result, we are still seeing, multiple offers above asking price on properly priced listings.

Unless there is a flood of new listings, this trend should continue for the near term.

Much better to get on the market now, ahead of the flood of listings expected when restrictions are lifted (versus waiting to see what happens).

There is no anticipated upside to waiting, but the downside could be significant.

REAL ESTATE MATTERS | The National Association of Realtors predicts a 10 percent reduction in sales for 2020 due to coronavirus.

Supreme Court makes it harder for borrowers to fight foreclosures in non-judicial states

This should eliminate mass joinder lawsuits that do not save houses, but allowed lawyers to collect tens of thousands of dollars from struggling homeowners in exchange for hope they could prevail. Homeowners need the help of advocates, like us more than ever!

The ruling is a victory for the mortgage industry in its fight to retrieve property from delinquent homeowners. One attorney claims the ruling may eliminate thousands of similar homeowner lawsuits. Click the headline to read more.

Is it time to buy? Let us know your thoughts. Take our poll!

Higher prices and interest rates have put home ownership out of reach for most middle class buyers, but rising inventory levels (that has lead to much lower prices), interest rates under 4.5% again, and low down payment programs, this might be the right time to enter the market before prices and interest rates run up again as anticipated by summer.

What do you think?

End of net neutrality could spell doom for real estate

The end of net neutrality could spell doom for real estate, small businesses and drive internet costs way up for consumers. Internet service providers want us to pay for internet like we pay for cable! http://ow.ly/UnWi30gLxD8

And for RedFin, Zillow and realtor.com, a rollback could have a deleterious effect, making it more expensive for consumers to access these sites.
