PCSing? Short sale info from HQMC


From HQMC:

a) The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently announced that military homeowners with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loans who receive Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders will be eligible to sell their homes in a short sale, even if they are current on their mortgage. Previously, many military families’ only options were to maintain financial obligations on two residences, or to default on their mortgage. Under the new policy, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will not pursue a deficiency judgment from service members with PCS orders for any property purchased on or before June 30, 2012.  PCS orders often require quick moves and can create hardship for military homeowners who are underwater on their mortgages and therefore cannot sell their home without taking a loss. Military families were faced with tough situations such as living in separate homes or the risk of losing the service member’s security clearance.

Service members can check the Fannie Mae and the Freddie
websites to see if their loans are held by them or they can call hotlines for military homeowners at 1-877-MIL-4566 or 1-800-FREDDIE.

Baby’s got a brand new bag. . .


So, what had happened was. . .

In a week so much can change, in my case, I’m sitting at a new desk, in a new office, waiting on new business cards.

After a wonderful offer and way too much time spent on pro and con lists over wine with family and friends, I have made the leap.

So, what’s the scoop now?  I am still very much in residential real estate and what ever commercial matters you may have, I have nice folks to pass it off to so I don’t get messy.  Focus is still on residential new construction, pre-sale, custom home builds as well of course as always residential resale assistance on both the buyer and seller side.

I MAY have promised a name change a year to two or both on a post or four about resolutions and what not-but throw a career and office move in triple digit heat in the upswing of the busy season while I’m fostering a wild man of a dog. . .and now navigating an Apple (stop laughing, no, really, stop laughing)-pardon my now extinct skills of right clicking and copy and pasting.  Hold your horses, I swear it’s on the to-do list, in bold italics with highlighter.  Hunting down a friend’s twelve year old to give me some tutorials on the mac in the meantime and while I’m treading water with work.

So, IMAGINE a pretty pic right about ———-> ici.

Looking forward to exciting new things, projects and folks. . .hope we have an opportunity to rub elbows soon, but hopefully in air conditioning. 😉

Area market activity- summer is heating things up!


We are working on fixing the broken links–stay poster but in the meantime, copy and paste action works well too.
