Comments on: Muddy manse http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/12/17/muddy-manse/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: GotDOCG http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/12/17/muddy-manse/comment-page-1/#comment-407241 Wed, 24 Mar 2010 04:07:14 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=23325#comment-407241 The simple facts are: 1) lenders are still DEMANDING homeowners first be no less than 60 days delinquent (a 180 point credit hit). 2) The process takes at least 7 months. 3) even when successful, the modifications put in place are not conducive to long term compliance… just the opposite. 4)IRS code makes it more profitable for lenders NOT to cooperate, and foreclose on homes…

There are no less than another 3-4 million Option ARMS (100% of the WaMU, Wachovia and Downey portfolio’s) that are underwater… cannot remotely be refinanced. with modification being the ONLY answer… Case Shiller, RealtyTrac and the rest of the “experts” are off by a factor approaching 100%… by the time that this bloodbath ends, in no less that 3-5 years, 23-25 homeowners will have been devastated…

Maybe he can use TurboTax, as Geithner did, plead being an ignoramus (like Geithner) and get away with it.

How about the Llenroc Mansion located in Clifton Park in upstate New York. This 60,000 sq ft mansion is estimated to have cost upwards of $30,000,000.00 to build but just sold for a paltry $1,900,000.00.

Without proper, affordable price on buying and selling houses, price corrections, knowledge on day today prices on luxury segments, then, it will be very difficult to monitor and likely involved in these segments.Of course, U.S.A. markets are started to showing some encouraging results, but not yet totally on main stream.
My sincere advice to U.S.A. Citizens to wait,watch,analyse on any important sectors and then, they can decide whether to purchase or sell their hereditary properties and for new purchases.
