Huntington Beach CA – Here is a shocking fact that most of the American Public doesn’t know. Most mortgages are not owned by banks.
In addition, most of the huge losses on bad mortgages was not lost by the banks themselves. Instead, the biggest loser was Uncle Sam, thru the takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Most mortgages are sold after they are made. We estimate that around 75-80% of all mortgages were sold before the housing crisis.
This means that the large lenders didn’t take the hit on the bad mortgages they originated. Instead, Uncle Sam often took the hit.
Another large buyer of mortgages were pension funds and retirement funds. Do you think the Average American was fleeced by Wall Street?
But, here is something even more appalling. It appears that they are still being fleeced by the big banks. You see, those were sold to Uncle Sam or a pension fund.
However, in many cases those mortgages are still being handled by the original entity that made the bad loan. They are required to act in the loan owner’s best interest.
But, in many cases the lenders are not doing a good job trying to maximize the return on defaulted mortgages.
Remember yesterday’s blog post about the lender charging a 1% fee to the home buyer on a short sale? That fee only reduced what the loan owner was able to get for the bad mortgage. Thinking about a short sale?

Tony Hunthausen, Remax Select One, 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.
