Home buyers should know that the mortgage market is not exempt from the impact of a possible government shut down, which the U.S. faces perhaps as soon as Tuesday if lawmakers do not agree on spending cuts.

On a positive note, home owner who are pursuing mortgages bought and backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can feel relieved. Those mortgages would not be affected because those companies rely on fees from loans to keep their operations going, not on government money. Luckily, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-backed loans comprise the majority of loans as of late.

However, home buyers pursing loans backed by a government agencies like the Federal Housing Administration should keep a sharp eye on government decisions this week. Any of these loans that…

Hot Washington DC Property Post for June 5, 2012

Petworth is on fire right now.  Buy this and flip it.  Sell for $500-600K.


1420 Crittenden St NW, Washington, DC 20011

List Price: $549,990

This is in 16th Street Heights.  The price is way too high.  I think I have posted this on the blog 3 or 4 times now.  This seller needs a reality check.  A cash offer with quick close in the low $400's is what it will probably take to get this one.  Renovated it would sell in mid $600's.

Every Friday I will blog about the best deals that I think are available on the market.  Buyers need to understand that inventory is very low right now.  To get a good deal you must be patient and be willing to make a lot of offers with the hopes that one will stick.  A lot of the homes on the market right now are overpriced.  You need to be prepared to make a lot of lower then asking price offers and hope that the seller comes to his or her senses. 

Here are the hot properties that I think are worth looking into:


Huge house.  Been on the market for 217 days.  Started at $680K.  Homes on this street in 16th Street Heights have huge lots.  

Current Price: $485,000

Offer Price: $425,000

Last evening I met with a homeowner regarding his decision to complete a Prince Georges County Short Sale.   The meeting was initiated by the homeowners lender.  In my experience this setup is rare.  Typically, in these situations it is the borrower(homeowner) who must contact the lender to inform them that they would like to do a short sale.  The fact that the lender has reached out to the borrower to initiate a Prince Georges County short sale shows you the situation that most lenders are faced with.  In the last few years lenders have had to adjust their loss mitigation efforts due to the mistakes they have made when foreclosing on their borrower.  That may all change soon.  Last week 49 state attorneys general came to a settlement with the nation's…

A lot of investors and homebuyers ask me about buying a Washington DC foreclosure.  In this blog I will talk about the process a bank must go through to foreclose and where to search for them. 

First, you must understand that in Washington DC there are very few foreclosures on the market currently.  It has been over a year since banks have foreclosed on a property in Washington DC.  This is due to the robo signing issue(which was just resolved last week) and the mediation law that the DC council put in place in December 2011.  The mediation law forces banks to meet face to face with the borrower to prevent a Washington DC foreclosure.  In the second half of 2011 only 25 notices of default were issued by banks compared with over 1000 issued in 2010.  A…
