5 Insights on Miami foreclosure from the Lender’s Perspective…

Phone call last week with a lender foreclosing on a Miami condo…

Last week I had a follow-up conversation with a small independent banker in Colorado whose bank is going through the foreclosure process with a condo in Miami.  We will be listing the property for sale with ShowcaseMiami Realty as a Miami foreclosure/REO/Bank owned property when his bank regains possession of this Miami condo.

It was an interesting conversation because so often, as Miami Short Sale Specialists, ShowcaseMiami Realty represents the interests of Sellers who are at risk of foreclosure (not their lenders).

 

Here was his feedback from a lender’s perspective…

1)  He said that the process is very one-sided (in favor of the borrower)

2)  In this situation, the Miami borrower has not made a mortgage payment in 2 years.

3)  His bank has been paying their attorneys to try and foreclose on the Miami condo for over one year.  As is often the case, the borrower has her own attorney working to extend the foreclosure process.

4)  The banker says that a foreclosure generally costs his bank $5,000 in attorneys fees.  Today, he says, the cost for a bank to foreclose is $15,000-$20,000 as a result of the delays imposed by borrowers.

5)  The banker says that his bank is “losing their shorts” already on this Miami loan.  The additional time, attorneys fees & deferred maintenance of this Miami condo increases the bank’s loss.

I asked the banker if borrowers were able to stave off foreclosure altogether as a result of technicalities.  He said this was not an issue with his firm because they are a small, independent bank as opposed to a “processing plant with large mortgage portfolios”.

3 Reasons to contact ShowcaseMiami when selling or buying real estate outside of Florida…

1)  We have a vast network of agents that we work with around the country.

2)  We know what questions to ask a potential agent when vetting the right agent for your out of state referral.

3) Follow-up and added accountability…we communicate with the out of state agent until the deal is closed.

Recent Napa example…

  Our customers purchased a penthouse condo in Coconut Grove and were seeking a 2nd home in the Napa, CA area.  We contacted 4 potential agents in Napa (Saint Helena) and after interviewing them we determined that one was the right choice.  Our customers were very pleased with this agent’s service and closed on a beautiful home with its own vineyard several months later.  See photos below…

Coral Gables Waterway Homes (Standup Paddle Board Perspective)

As a Miami Real Estate Agent, I find that there is no better way to appreciate Coral Gables’ waterfront homes than by stand up paddle board.

Sunday’s Coral Gables paddleboard adventure from Cocoplum to the Biltmore Hotel…

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of standup paddling from Cocoplum to the Biltmore Hotel via the Coral Gables Waterway.  It is a scenic 6-mile journey roundtrip.  I finally had to turn around at the Biltmore Golf Course when I realized I was 200 feet from one of the golf holes.  It felt like being in an artillery range with approaching airborne golf balls.

 

Along the way, there was so much to appreciate…

Did you know?

There are boats larger than 60 feet on the Coral Gables Waterway.  They must depart and return from the dock during low tide only in order to have clearance under the fixed bridges.

Some photos of the Gables Waterway below…

Boathouses like the one shown above are plentiful behind the homes of the Coral Gables Waterway.  Boat Houses can not be found in any of the other premium Coral Gables Waterfront Communities including (Gables Estates, Old Cutler Bay, Journeys End or Cocoplum).

 The 125 foot boat slip (photo above) carved out of the Coral Rock was built by the Army Corps of Engineers.  The U.S. Navy hid ships designed to hunt German U-Boats in this Coral Gables Waterway boat slip because it was so discrete.  The U Boat hunting vessels were manufactured on the Miami River.

Feel free to call me if you would like additional information on areas to explore by standup paddle board in Coral Gables or Coconut Grove.
