Ventura County Real Estate Market Updates

 Mortgage Rates Just Jumped Over 4%. Now What?

Last week, mortgage interest rates jumped over the 4% mark for the first time this year according to Freddie Mac’s Mortgage Market Survey.

Moorpark Home Market Trends               Moorpark Condo-TownHome Market Trends

In an article in Housing Wire, a Bankrate analyst explained:

“Mortgage rates rocketed higher following a stronger than expected monthly employment report. The good news on the job front further solidifies the notion that the Federal Reserve will likely begin raising interest rates soon, perhaps in the third quarter of this year.”

This is the same type of commentary we heard back in the spring of 2013 when the talk of the Fed possibly raising rates caused mortgage interest rates to surge by a full percentage point from the end of April through the end of June of that year.

Will We See that Same Surge in 2015?

No one knows for sure. However, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Mortgage Bankers Association and the National Association of Realtors are each calling for rates to continue their upswing over the next six quarters.

Here is a chart comparing 2013 to this year:

Mortgage Rate Spike Comparison | Simplifying The Market

Bottom Line

Though no one can definitely say where rates will be six months from now, most experts believe they will be higher. If you are thinking of buying your first home or are considering a move up to the house of your family’s dreams, now may be the best time to do it.

How To Fix Your Credit After A Moorpark Short Sale: Step 1

Moorpark CA – One of the common reasons that people are concerned about a foreclosure or short sale in their history is because they are concerned about their credit score.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

While it’s true that your credit score will be adversely affected by these items, it is also true that you can move past blemishes on a credit report.

You may want to consider doing some credit repair or credit restoration. It isn’t hard to do, and when taken step by step, it can be handled in an organized, manageable way.

The first step that you need to do is to get and review your credit report. I’m always amazed by the psychology of just this step.

Most people don’t want to pull their credit report because they “just feel” like it will be bad, and they don’t want to see it.

However, you won’t know where you are at or how to get onto the next phase of recovery until you figure out where you are at.

You have seen all the commercials, and can sing the jingles, for some of the places to get your credit report. There are pros and cons for any of the places you can get your credit report.

The two words of caution I offer here are:

1. You can get an annual free credit report (the one that the government requires the 3 credit reporting bureaus to provide) from annualcreditreport dot com.

However – if you choose this route – it is free, but it then bumps up the time that a creditor has to investigate any of your disputes from 30 to 45 days.

This isn’t a great option, in my opinion. You’ll understand why after you learn about the dispute process.

Also, be aware that this service doesn’t have to give you your 3 digit credit score – which you might want to know.

2. Most of the other services offer you a free 30 day trial period, and then you get “enrolled” in their credit monitoring program. If you aren’t one to keep track of the 30 day trial timeframe, you could end up sucked into paying for something that you wouldn’t normally want to spend monthly money on.

In my next blog post I will talk about how to review your report, what to look for, and how to analyze it. Thinking about a short sale?

Chris B Johnson, Prudential Califonia Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.

Step 2 To Fix Your Credit After A Moorpark Short Sale: Analyze Your Credit Report

Certified as a California Association of Realtors HAFA Specialist, a National Association of Realtors Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource, Chris B Johnson Realtor is a Certified Distressed Property Expert, Certified Short Sale Negotiator and Certified Pre-Foreclosure Specialist.

Fix Your Credit After A Ventura County Short Sale: Analyze Your Credit Report

Moorpark CA – Once you have gotten your credit report, the next step in the process of restoring your credit score is to go over it with a critical eye. Analyze what the report says.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

Put aside any emotion that looking at the report might stir up – you need to look at it objectively.

First, make two copies of your credit report. Save the original without any marks on it. You can make any notes you need on one of the copies, and put the other copy aside for a later step.

Your credit report will show all sorts of history on your credit accounts. Look for all the negative items on your credit report and highlight each one.

The credit reporting firms might not make it easy for you to know what they are considering negative with all the codes they use.

As a very general rule, Experian notes negative items with an asterisk or an inquiry; Equifax and TransUnion put “>>>” as a way to signal negative items or items that have a rating higher than l1, M1, or R1.

You can also look for these words: repossession, foreclosure, profit and loss write-off, charge-off, paid profit and loss write-off, paid charge off, settled, settled for less than full balance, included in bankruptcy, collection amounts.

Paid, unpaid (or anything indicating payment history); court accounts, liens, judgments, bankruptcy (chapters 11,7, or 13) divorce, satisfied liens, or satisfied judgments; or items that show more than 30, 60, or 90 day payments. All of these should get highlighted by you.

Once you’ve highlighted anything that is listed as negative, take out a pencil and put a note next to the items that are either inaccurate or inconsistent. Inaccurate items are the ones that aren’t yours, or show the wrong balance, etc.

An inconsistent reporting is where the same information on the report contradicts itself somewhere else. For example, showing one place that there are twelve 31-day-lates on an account, while also saying that the account was only reviewed for 4 months.

It is always surprising how often there are errors like that found on credit reports. Remember – there’s a whole lot of information being submitted each day to these companies, and mistakes can happen.

The next step will be important to take as soon as you finish highlighting your report.

You will need to move quickly through these first few steps – your timing is all tracked and it’s important for you to be diligent so that your credit can be restored. Thinking about a short sale?

Step 3 To Fix Your Credit After A Moorpark Short Sale: Rank Items In Order Of Importance

Moorpark CA – The next step in going over your credit reports is to really rank the items being reported about you to find ones that are the most negative. Rank the negative items with the MOST negative ones given the lowest ranking.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

You want to rank the ones that will cause the most damage to your credit score.

Here are the most damaging items (in order of damage amount): bankruptcy; foreclosure; repossession; loan default; court judgment; accounts in collections; payments that are past due; payments that are late; being denied credit; inquiries to open new credit.

One thing to note about disputing things on your credit report – items like court judgments and foreclosures and child support arrears are verified by a different system, and are rarely if ever disputable.

Here is one of the best suggestions that I have seen work well. Take a Sharpie pen, and mark on the unused copy of your report.

Circle the items you are disputing and write a SHORT note about why you are disputing that item – for example “Not my account” or “Not Late.”

I am not advising you to lie or make misleading statements when you write to the credit reporting company. However, I will tell you that if someone is reporting something about you, they should be able to prove that what they are saying is the truth.

The credit bureaus are required to check out and investigate all the disputes they get that are deemed to not be “frivolous or irrelevant.”

What that means is that you need to not dispute every single item on your report right now, and you need to be taken seriously.

This means DO NOT use the dispute form that they sent with your credit report. They see those forms as “frivolous” 9 out of 10 times.

DO NOT use their online dispute center – the credit bureaus don’t take those seriously because they think you can’t be too serious if you just click-click-clicked away to dispute it. Thinking about a short sale?

Step 4 To Fix Your Credit After A Moorpark Short Sale: Write The Credit Bureaus

Moorpark CA – Using your work on the credit report, you are ready to take action. You are now going to write a letter to the credit bureaus about the items you’ve highlighted and noted.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

You are writing to the credit bureaus because they are the ones reporting the information – it is up to them to change what they report.

The goal is to get bad things deleted from your credit report in order to improve your score.

Do not go to Google, or bing and try to find a form letter than you should send in for this step! The credit reporting companies can spot those like a hunting dog can spot a duck.

You will not get anywhere with a “canned” letter, and will damage your chances of ever resolving issues.

Your letter should sound like you are frustrated (which you undoubtedly are), and should sound authentic. But, do sound polite and friendly.

Don’t sound like an expert, but do sound like you expect action. In this round of letters – your aim is to have the credit bureaus remove items that are hurting your credit score.

The bureau will then have to investigate your dispute and REMOVE any of the disputed items if they can’t prove them to be accurate (this involves them contacting the original creditor and verifying with them – all within the short 30 day window allowed by law).

Here is the basic outline to follow for your first round of letters you send:

At the TOP of the letter, put your name, SSN, current address (and state lived there for X years), and your DOB.

Say something about how you’ve just reviewed your credit report, and found items that are inaccurate.

List the items BRIEFLY. Say something like: “Chase Credit Card xxx-xxx-xxxx, listed for 30 days late. I have never been late on this account,” or “Citi Credit Card xxx xxxx xxx listed as collections. This is false.”

Note that you are upset / worried / distressed / embarrassed about these items, since you know they are negatively affecting your credit score.

Ask that these items be deleted from your report immediately.

Add Sincerely, and your name below. Sign the letter.

Include a photo copy of your driver’s license as proof that you are you making this request. Also include proof if you have it (credit card statement from the month where they say you were late when you weren’t.)

The next step is to submit this letter. Thinking about a short sale?

Moorpark CA – Once your strongly worded credit report dispute letters are written to each of the three credit reporting companies, then it is time to get it into the hands of their dispute department.

The goal is to get your letter read, taken seriously, and responded to.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

**Make sure you make a copy of whatever you are sending to the credit bureaus.** Just keep all your credit reports, letters, etc. in a file so you can use these later (this will be important.)

Send your letter, a copy of the credit report with the items you are disputing noted in Sharpie, and a copy of your driver’s license to each of the credit reporting companies.

This step CAN be a bit tricky, even though it should be the easiest step of all! Here’s why – the credit reporting firms don’t really like to deal with these dispute letters, and they change their mailing address for submitting these requests fairly often.

You will need to go to the website for Experian, Equifax, and Trans Union to get their dispute address.

BUT DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR DISPUTES ONLINE, like their websites pushes you to do. If you do this, your request is less likely to be taken seriously, and you won’t have any written record of what you submitted.

Send each of your letters as Certified Mail. Your local post office will help you with this.

Put the copy of the certification slip into your file as well. The certification slip ensures that you have a timeline started for restoring your credit. Thinking about a short sale?

Moorpark CA – I mentioned in the last note that you’ll need to keep a file of records about your credit restoration process. This is an important part of the process, and deserves a bit more than a brief mention.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

The credit reporting companies have 30 days (by law), to investigate and handle the disputes submitted to them. This is why you submitted everything through certified mail.

That enables you to record the time firmly for the credit reporting firms to respond within. But it’s more than that. This file will become important for a long time for you.

Many people successfully removed items from their credit reports. Later on they found those same items show back up on their credit report months in the future! Having a record of your efforts and the results is needed to keep your record blemish free in the future.

Make your records easy to follow. You will need to keep the original copy of your credit reports here, as well as the copies you’ve made notes and comments on.

Keep copies of the letters you send to the credit reporting companies. Keep the Certified Mail slips. File any correspondence that the credit reporting companies send to you.

Keep a journal in your file of any telephone conversations you have with any of the creditors or credit reporting companies. Record in this journal the names, dates, times, and notes of these phone calls.

In addition, have a method to remind yourself of “action step dates” – those dates where you expect to have a certain action done by the credit reporting firms.

This can be a calendar you keep on the front of the file, or use Outlook’s calendar feature, or your calendar app on your phone.

This may seem like your credit report has become your new part time job, but with a little bit of organization and perseverance, it will be worth it! Thinking about a short sale?

Important Notice

Chris B Johnson, Prudential Califonia Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.

Step 8: To Fix Your Credit After A Moorpark Short Sale: Checking Your Results

Your BEST CHOICE FOR A REALTOR IN VENTURA COUNTY CA, Ventura County Certified Short Sale Specialist, Ventura County Short Sale Help, Certified Short Sale Negotiator, Stop Foreclosure Institute of Ventura County, Your Top Listing Realtor with Prudential California Realty, Moorpark, http://bit.ly/14WW3B0 Moorpark CA – The next step in your credit repair process is a very important one. This is the time where you check the results of your efforts so far.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

The credit bureaus have now sent you their results, including a new credit report and a letter telling you what has changed on the report based on your disputes.

Don’t just read what they sent and file it away! Make a copy of it, and have it ready to file.

Take out your file that has the original copy of your credit report and put it side by side with the new report. Take out your copy of the letter you originally sent to the bureau that laid out all the things you were disputing.

Go through and compare these disputes against their updated credit report.

Their summary might say that an item was investigated but was verified, and so it still shows on your credit report, and wasn’t removed. They won’t say more than, “item verified.”

This could discourage you, but what folks who’ve been down this road before you will tell you is that no one called the original information provider to verify the item – that they used that eOscar dataset to check it out.

If they “verified” something on your credit report which clearly isn’t yours:

  1. Call the toll-free number at the top of the report
  2. Tell them your report reference number and ask for “the method of verification per FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) Section 611 (a) (7).
  3. If they say they called the original creditor, ask them for the phone number of the original creditor.
  4. Call the original creditor and ask for the records yourself.
  5. If they say the records are not available, call the credit reporting agency back at their number from the results report and tell them that the original creditor has no records, and that they need to open another dispute – provide them with the name and number of the person you just talked to at the original creditor.

This sounds like a lot of hassle, but it’s worth the extra effort.

On the other hand – you might find in your new reporting from the credit bureaus that the disputed item was investigated and the listing was found to be inaccurate or unverifiable!

If this is the case, the negative listing will either be deleted from your report all together or it will go from being a negative to being a positive. This is great news for you! Thinking about a short sale?
