इंग्लिश हाफा HAFA

HAFA the latest and greatest government fix plan and how it might work



Lenders want to look good in the news and to shareholders. The HAFA plan is being rolled out to lenders who want to continue.

Borrowers must be HAMP-eligible to qualify for HAFA and must be considered for the new program within 30 days of failing to qualify for or complete a HAMP trial. The rules and regulations are not simple or straightforward and it is going to require someone to hold your hand through the process.

I am not NOT saying to go pay some attorney or service company. Don’t waste your hard earned dough.

Here’s the skinny:

1. Clear title No tax liens no second no third no past due taxes no HOA liens.
Any subordinate liens must be paid off in full. The borrower can also negotiate with the holder to release the liens before the closing date but you would be a fool to wait until closing because these guys are not going to just smile and walk away.

2. Get a pre-approved short sale terms before the property is listed and frees them from future liability for the debt.

3. Get a great experienced and knowagable loan agent at the lender where your loan is serviced and a great experienced and long time Realtor as your listing agent. Lenders can’t make the Realtor cut the commission so you get your terms in writing with your Realtor before you apply. Servicers are prohibited from requiring a reduction in the real estate commission agreed to in the listing agreement.

4. The borrower also receives a $1,500 incentive for relocation after the transaction.
Lender also gets a little money

Worst Ten in the Worst Ten
SAND States: CA Florida and Nevada are up there
• The table below lists the ten metropolitan areas that had the highest rates of foreclosure in the first half of 2008 as reported by RealtyTrac (the “Worst Ten” MSAs).. Rank MSA Non-prime Mortgage Foreclosure Rate 1 Detroit 22.9% 2 Cleveland 21.6% 3 Stockton 21.5% 4 Sacramento 18.0% 5 Riverside/San Bernardino 16.1% 6 Memphis 15.6% 7 Miami/Fort Lauderdale 14.3% 8 Bakersfield 14.3% 9 Denver 14.0% 10 Las Vegas 13.9%
• For each of these metro areas, the “Worst Ten” originators were identified: the ten originators in each MSA with the largest number of non-prime mortgage foreclosures in the Loan Performance database for 2005-2007 originations.
• Only 21 companies in various combinations occupy the Worst Ten slots in the Worst Ten metro areas:
AEGIS FUNDING CORPORATION GREENPOINT MORTGAGE FUNDING AMERICAN HOME MORTGAGE CORP. INDYMAC BANK, F.S.B. AMERIQUEST MORTGAGE COMPANY LONG BEACH MORTGAGE CO. ARGENT MORTGAGE COMPANY NEW CENTURY MORTGAGE BNC MORTGAGE OPTION ONE MORTGAGE CORP COUNTRYWIDE OWNIT MORTGAGE SOLUTIONS INC. DECISION ONE MORTGAGE PEOPLE'S CHOICE FINANCIAL CORP DELTA FUNDING CORPORATION RESMAE MORTGAGE CORPORATION FIELDSTONE MORTGAGE COMPANY WELLS FARGO FIRST FRANKLIN CORPORATION WMC MORTGAGE CORP. FREMONT INVESTMENT & LOAN
• Of these 21 firms, 12 were exclusively supervised by the states; overall, such originators accounted for nearly 60 percent of non-prime mortgage loans and foreclosures in the Worst Ten metro areas in 2005-2007.
• Only three firms on the list were subject to OCC supervision at any time during 2005-2007, and those three accounted for fewer than 12 percent of foreclosures in the Worst Ten metro areas.
• Results for the U.S. as a whole are similar to those for the Worst Ten metropolitan areas. OCC-supervised institutions accounted for approximately 12 to 14 percent of the non-prime originations; moreover, foreclosure rates for OCC-supervised institutions were markedly lower on average than for other types of originators.

Your lender is bankrupt absorbed or state supervised: english translation:
Are probably not on the HAFA/ Short sale is going to work list.


You have a first second and third all different lenders---
English translation:
Your first is not going to negotiate with them. You must
Fight a very steep uphill battle

You have a first larger than $ 730000.00
English translation:
You are going to have to fight outside of the federal rules
And make common sense to the lender.

ENGLISH Translation OVERALL:

Opportunity for Real Estate Agents, Borrowers and Lenders IF they are willing to be paperwork pros.
