Pre Foreclosure Deal - Posted by Manny

Hey Gang

Got a lead on a pre foreclosure in Brooklyn New York for them NY, NJ investors. Property is being foreclosure by 1st has a 2nd as well. Here are the numbers

SFR/ Rented with tenants not making payments
FMV- $220,000
OWES- $166,000
PITI- 1,498 AT 6.45%
The $ 166,000 would be the payoff amount. If we wanted to bring the mortgage current we would need $23,000. Which is pretty hefty for a tenant buyer to place on a lease option.


OWES- $23,000

I know the numbers are tight, but I feel we can play with this. Any suggestions on what strategy to use.

I would think I can most definitely try a short sale here. Owner says 2nd had mention to her they would consider that.

I also figured maybe I can just put a option to purchase on it and market the property as owner financing and sell it to the retail buyer , but time might be a factor with the owner just filing for bankruptcy.

She wanted to slow the foreclosure process to see if she could get anything done to get rid of the home. I also feel I can go sub 2, but not sure if that is the way to go.

So anyone with any ideas on best getting this deal done. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions.

I have a meeting with the family that is renting the home tomorrow to look over the property.

The owner lives South Carolina she left New York about 13 months ago.

Best Regards,

I would agree that the second should definitely be shorted. I probably wouldn’t pay more than $5k (if that).

Although there’s good equity, I would probably try and short the first as well. I’ve seen situations where the 1st really didn’t have a clue as to the value of a property and agreed to a shortsale allowing the buyer plenty of equity in the deal.

But I would first get all the information. Has it ben scheduled for sale yet? How much time does the owner have? How much to fix the place up?

Without a ss from the 1st, the deal is kind of tight. You may have better luck trying to get it at the sheriff sale, IMHO
