Test Your Knowledge: 10 "Normal Questions" and 9 Difficult Ones

If you can answer 40% of these foreclosure questions, you’re ahead of most of the people in our industry.”

— Joffrey Long

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Non-judicial foreclosure” in California involves a notice of default, a notice of trustees sale, the trustees sale auction, and property going to one of the bidders or reverting back to the lender/beneficiary.

There's a lot more to foreclosures and trustees sales than just what I mentioned. If you can answer 40% of these foreclosure questions, you’re ahead of most of the people in our industry. The last 9 questions are a little more advanced – all the answers will be in my next article, tomorrow.

Confirm your knowledge:

Trustees Sale Bidding: The first trust deed on a property is foreclosing. The lender’s minimum bid including the loan balance, payments due, advances, and charges on their first loan is $310,000. There’s an existing second trust deed with a $60,000 unpaid balance and a 3rd trust deed with a balance of $100,000. The property sells at the trustees sale for $400,000. What happens to the money paid at the sale in excess of $310,000? Who receives it?
What if the same house with the same 1st, 2nd, and 3rd sold for $500,000? What would happen to the money?

Second trust Deed: A lender holds a $50,000 second trust deed on a property. There’s a first trust deed for $200,000 and the first trust deed begins a foreclosure. How can the holder of the second protect their interest?

Is there another way they can protect their interest?

Delinquent property tax: House was purchased in 2015 with 250,000 first loan. Property owner never paid property taxes. By 2019, $18,500 in delinquent property taxes are due. First trust deed forecloses. Total balance on the first at time of sale is $291,000 and the property sells at the auction for $360,000:

1- Do the property taxes get paid from the trustees sale proceeds?

2- Does the buyer get the property free of the unpaid property taxes?

IRS Lien: There’s a $310,000 first trust deed that’s been on the property for 5 years. 2 years ago, the owner got an IRS lien for $75,000. The first forecloses and the property goes to auction. It sells at the trustees sale for $500,000.

1- Is the IRS lien paid off from the trustees sale?

2- Is the IRS lien “wiped out”?

3- Does the new buyer take the property with an IRS lien attached to it?

Excess Proceeds: The total of the first trust deed lender’s loan, payments and other charges is $270,000. The first forecloses and at the sale, the property sells for $400,000. After the foreclosing first trust deed holder gets their $270,000, how is the remainder of the $400,000 distributed?

Trustees Sale: Who is the auctioneer at the trustee’s sale? Who announces the auction, the property address, the trustees sale number, the opening bid, and calls for additional bids, then announces the winning bidder?

The questions get harder…………

Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure: A lender holds a loan and is foreclosing. To avoid having a foreclosure on their record, the borrower is willing to sign the property over to the lender with a deed in lieu of foreclosure. If the borrower just deeds the house to the lender, they can both bypass the foreclosure process.
Should the lender accept the deed in lieu?

Why or why not?

Lender’s Bidding at the Trustees Sale: Sometimes you’ll hear that “there was a trustees sale but there were no bidders.” This is never correct. To schedule a trustees sale, a lender must always submit a minimum opening bid. There’s always at least one bid (the lender’s) at any trustees sale. Bidders OTHER THAN the lender are called “third party bidders.” It is often true that “there were no third-party bidders at the trustees sale and the lender’s bid was the only bid.”

Question: If a lender is foreclosing, what is the maximum amount of their opening bid?

Next question: Is there ever a reason why the lender should bid less than the maximum they’re allowed to bid?

Foreclosure 103: These questions are a little tougher yet………

Is Property Auctioned at the Trustees Sale Sold “As-Is?”

Are You Sure?

Judicial Foreclosure:

We’ve talked about non-judicial foreclosure – notice of default, notice of trustees sale, then an auction, the most common in California. It can take as little as about four months, costs are about 2% of the amount of the trust deed being foreclosed on. Judicial foreclosure is a “full-on” lawsuit and could take years. It could cost tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Question: Why would anyone do a judicial foreclosure?

What other reasons are there?

Could you start both a judicial and a non-judicial foreclosure at the same time?

How did you do?

Please watch for part 2, tomorrow. We'll discuss the answers.

Joffrey Long: Key Reasons You Should Attend a Live Class

One idea, one contact, or one new way to improve your business could be worth the entire class.”

— Joffrey Long

GRANADA HILLS, CA, UNITED STATES, August 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A growing number of attendees return to live classes year after year. Live classes are entertaining, interactive, and draw not only on course material, but on the combined decades of experience of the instructor and the attendees. Participants in live classes contribute their personal knowledge, often to the benefit of the group.

The fast moving classes cover:

Federal Law and Regulation impacting real estate loans, including TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosures (TRID), Fair
Lending, and practical aspects of compliance and interaction with Federal requirements.

Non-Traditional Mortgages, including VA Loans, will be addressed, along with coverage of Qualified Mortgage and “Non-QM” loans, and Hard Money Loans. (Private money loans)

State Law and Regulation are also covered, along with practical aspects of compliance, including the California Homeowner’s Bill of Rights, (HBOR) requirements and compliance with HBOR, and non-judicial Foreclosure.

Ethics, including compliance with privacy laws, as well as ethics for those who are loan originators is covered. It is also discussed as it relates to loan servicers, or lenders who may service a mortgage.

Expert witness testimony in Superior Courts, Federal Courts, Bankruptcy Court, and in Arbitrations provides Joffrey Long with additional insights and information of value. Certain loan originators, loan servicing personnel, and other participants in either making, arranging, or servicing consumer-purpose loans are required to hold an NMLS endorsement, often in addition to another license under which they originate loans.

Loan originators get more from the classes than just continuing education credit. They network, exchange ideas on the direction of the industry, trends in mortgage lending, and information about useful sources, lenders, and ways of dealing with the continual changes we face. One idea, one contact, or one new way to improve your business could be worth the entire class!

The 8-hour class will be provided in numerous locations in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino Counties. Joffrey Long will be teaching the class in the following locations:

On The Block modernizes the current real estate environment in Durham Region

Innovative GTA-based company is expanding east to improve the
traditional way Durham Region buys and sells real estate

Our ultimate goal is to put the power back where it should be – in the hands of the buyer and seller”

— Daniel Steinfeld

CLARINGTON, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLARINGTON, ON (August 20, 2019) – On The Block Realty Inc. is an innovative real estate business that has successfully been bringing unprecedented transparency to the industry in recent years. Now, they are expanding their services into the Durham Region to offer buyers and sellers more choice in the real estate process.

On The Block is a premium full-service real estate brokerage that, in partnership with On The Block Auctions, gives clients the exclusive option to auction their home. The first of its kind in Canada, its business model is designed to take the ‘silent’ out of the traditional bidding process seen in Ontario, and instead offer an option that will provide buyers and sellers with full transparency. Using a cutting edge online real estate auction platform, On The Block is able to give sellers the opportunity to sell their home like never before and at no extra cost.

“Our ultimate goal is to put the power back where it should be – in the hands of the buyer and seller,” says Daniel Steinfeld, CEO of On The Block. “The primary focus is to provide greater choice for people and greater transparency – of process, of information, and of costs. It is unfair that home buyers are often unaware of the process that takes place behind the scenes. By having all of the information about a listing out in the open, we are able to give buyers the opportunity to make comfortable and well-informed decisions.”

When selling a home by auction, there are many unique benefits to both the seller and potential buyers. The seller controls the terms and the timeline, which eliminates variable conditions and makes the process more efficient. The seller is able to set a reserve price before the auction to ensure the home sells at a price point they are comfortable with. In many cases, the auction intensifies when the reserve price is reached, with motivated buyers attempting to win an open bidding war for a home that will sell at the conclusion of the event.

While the auction format is expected to ensure the highest value to sellers, it also has appealing benefits from a buyer’s standpoint. The transparency of the process allows buyers to feel more comfortable increasing their bids and gives them a fair chance to purchase their dream home. Each buyer has access to the offer documentation ahead of time, which means there are no surprises to derail a potential sale. By ensuring that each buyer is on a level playing field, the price is the only thing left to negotiate.

“More and more we are seeing homes sold in multiple offers across Durham Region, which can make the process stressful and frustrating for consumers,” says Dan Minion, Sales Representative for On The Block in Durham Region. “In my opinion, buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions a person will make in their life. I am thrilled to be able to offer as much choice and transparency as possible, so a successful outcome can be achieved for both buyers and sellers.”

Durham Region continues to grow at a rapid pace, and offers a number of outstanding communities that are attracting buyers from across the GTA and beyond. With the increase in demand for homes in the area, the need for a more transparent process is vital.

Social Media Brander Lands On Entrepreneur/GreenEntrepreneur

Brand recognition requires social media marketing in today’s age

GREENWICH, CT, USA, August 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fotis Georgiadis, owner of the blog by his namesake, is a branding and image consultant specialist with a robust background and is a visionary interviewer. With a knack for pulling out a well rounded interview, not only covering cutting edge technologies and corporate directions, but also bringing out the personal side of the interviewee.

Branding requires multiple avenues of exposure to bring the name to the masses. Social media provides a vast range of exposure when done right, something Fotis Georgiadis specializes in. As a result, he has recently received exposure on Entrepreneur.com and GreenEntrepreneur.com. Linked here:

https://www.entrepreneur.com/author/fotis-georgiadis

https://www.greenentrepreneur.com/article/337952

Getting right down to it, Fotis Georgiadis delves into the interview with Olivia Alexander, founder of Kush Queen, finding out what brought her to the cannabis industry:

Thank you so much for doing this with us! Can you share with us the story about what brought you to this specific career path?

When I was in college, I began using cannabis recreationally. Safe usage wasn’t shunned in my family, but supported, so I began learning everything I could about the flower. Shortly thereafter, I took a job as a budtender at a friend’s dispensary and loved it. I knew then cannabis was my destiny.

Before Kush Queen, I owned a company called The Crystal Cult, which made Swarovski Crystal vape pens. I started the brand with only $700 on Instagram. Within months, we had tens of thousands of followers and a healthy business. I designed a vape for dry flower/wax concentrates called “Kush Queen”. It quickly became our number one selling product. So many people would call the Cult and ask to buy cannabis from us. I realized that women really didn’t have much speaking to them in cannabis or a brand they could belong to. I then spent a few years working for other cannabis companies, mainly doing social media and digital strategy. When you go behind the scenes, you realize the issues with the products, the issues with customers, and overall I just felt like I could make better products. It took some time, because everything was self-funded, but overtime we created and formulated our products, starting with the bath bombs. The complete interview can be seen on GreenEntrepreneur.

The cannabis industry continues to grow at an amazing rate, offering many opportunities for women to take the lead business development, formation and more. Along this same topic, Fotis Georgiadis has been interviewing a number of women leaders in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The president and founder of Par Avion, Ltd, Janine K. Iannarelli, recently sat down for an interview with Fotis Georgiadis to discuss this growing industry of women in STEM. Not only is branding about putting a name out there, it is also about putting the story and people behind it in the spotlight as can be seen in this part of the interview:

Thank you so much for doing this with us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Most people who choose unusual career paths will tell you they stood at a crossroads, though it may at the time have been unbeknownst to them. How I ended up building a career in aircraft sales was borne more out of my sense of adventure and an attempt to be unique without being perceived as “odd.”

I knew from early on that going to work for a large corporation where you are a number and the chance for advancement may be limited to how well you respond to a test versus demonstrable added value, was never going to work for me. I quickly realized that any action you take in a small company has a direct impact on the bottom line and the ability not only for you, but the company to succeed.

My first job as a researcher specializing in identifying trends in the business aircraft resale marketplace made that abundantly clear to me. That sense of making a real contribution that was almost immediately measurable was very empowering. After about nine months of working for the company, mostly from my desk, I was promoted to a sales position and was tasked with actually going on the road to secure new clients. Fresh out of college, with no training program on how to do this, I was given license to write the playbook on business development. Wow! That was not a daunting task to me and rather had the opposite effect. After two successful visits to prospective clients I felt invincible and realized I had found my calling. – The full interview is available here.

Looking back at both articles, we see how Fotis Georgiadis brings the success of these individuals and their brands to the masses in a way that pulls the reader in, wanting to find out more about the interviewees. Creating staying power for a reader of an interview allows time for the brand to 'sink in' and entices them to explore the company and more.

One big thing is that hospitality companies will need to allow full flexibility to their guests to cancel, change and move to other places.”

— Rafael Museri, Creator and CEO of Selina

GREENWICH, CT, USA, August 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Candice Georgiadis, owner of the blog by her namesake, interviews individuals on the cutting edge of hotel, travel, lifestyle and other similar topics. She expands the marketing foot print of companies with a combination of branding and imaging across social media and conventional websites.

Traveling the world continues to be one of life’s many great adventures. Each journey has its own merits, drawbacks and memories to bring home. What if the drawbacks could be minimized and the memories better? That’s what Candice Georgiadis finds out in 2 recent interviews. She is helping shape the travel industry by building brand name recognition for companies and people.

In a recent interview with Ryland King, Founder & CEO of Surf Trip List, Candice Georgiadis discusses the ‘roller-coaster’ ride that brought about Surf Trip List, one of the companies helping form the new travel industry for 2020 and beyond.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? Can you share a story about that?

In college, I founded an environmental education non-profit that grew incredibly fast. In five years it went from just an idea in my head to managing over 200+ college student volunteers in five cities throughout California.

I worked insane hours for years. So much so that my I was gifted office supplies by my parents on my 23rd birthday. A few months after that I hit burnout and had a massive breakdown.

I went through counseling, got my degree (which I had written off) and realigned my life. I wouldn’t give any part of the journey up, but boy have I dealt with burn out.

The most helpful thing I do today to help with burnout is to have a checklist of “To do”s and “Won’t do”s. What’s in each category constantly changes as each day develops. I like to think the “won’t do” list is almost more important than the “to do” list. Check out the rest of the interview here.

Bringing the real world challenges to light and how they were overcome, puts the reader in the shoes of the brand maker and gives them a feel for what it was like at the beginning. Building the story behind the brand is what sucks in the reader, builds recognition and a lasting impression.

Speaking of lasting impressions, another interview from Candice Georgiadis, has her meeting up with Rafael Museri, Creator and CEO of Selina, a travel experience focused brand.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? Can you share a story about that?

My tip would be that you need to be the customer of your own product. If you really love what you do and you keep it real and fun, your work becomes your life and your life becomes your work.

Entrepreneurs and CEO’s need to dedicate all of their time to these projects — if in your free time you are not enjoying your own product you need to create two separate lives: personal and work life.

The challenge is that when that moment comes that you need free time or to disconnect and find a way to be a customer of your own product, that’s when it’s truly amazing. But of course, at the same time, you need to keep dreaming and exploring places around the world and think a lot outside the box to continue to expand your business. I connect my passion of exploring new places and learning new cultures with my job at Selina. Read the rest of the interview over here.

Bringing the Selina brand to the traveling masses is what Candice Georgiadis’ focus is with the interview. Showing the traveling public what innovations can be had now, breaking from the traditional ‘sleep’ location.

Let’s jump to the core of our discussion. Can you share with our readers about the innovations that you are bringing to the travel and hospitality industries?

One of the most innovative things we did was to bring professional Coworking spaces into our Selinas. That allowed freelancers, corporate employees and digital nomads to travel and maintain a high level of work in our spaces. The reality is that people need to work, even if people think that when they go off the grid they are going to stop working the truth is that they will keep checking their phone, answering their emails and staying connected to what they do.

This applies more to people that want to travel for more time, let’s say 4–5 months they have to be able to maintain a productive and professional work time. The second is that Selina is not just staying at these prime locations in top cities around the world, but at the same time, we are going to surprise our customers with off the grid and remote locations challenging them to have a different experience.

With many hotels and resorts having established brands, breaking in to the industry can be challenging. Candice Georgiadis continues to help companies get a foothold in the industry and show travelers there is lots more to do than sleep at these places.
