Unconventional Sales Help
California Housing Market



With the new housing laws in effect, the number of bank-owned properties is declining. This, along with a large number of investors picking up properties with hopes to profit has helped the California housing market flourish for the beginning of 2013 but not in the traditional sense. Overall, some facts are pointing to future gains:
With less foreclosures, the banks are turning to short sales, loan modifications, and other workout options. As sales increase through these unconventional means, so do the types of legal issues raised by these types of sales. This is partially because the mix of sale options being used can be confusing for the average individual seeking to buy a home. For instance, in REO sales a buyer buys directly from lenders while in a shortsale you are buying from a homeowners/investor. Still further you can buys at a tax auction sale from the government. These are just some of the unconventional sales we are seeing in the market currently.

Overall, buying and selling through unconventional sales requires knowledge about complex legal issues not typically seen in a traditional escrow sale. One of the biggest issues raised by these types of sales relates to the "seller's" obligation (or lack thereof) to disclose costs, repairs, taxes or other important facts. There are a whole host of other issues as well with these types of sales but in the end these deals become ever more attractive as inventory dries up. As a future home owner, or a current homeowner looking to sell your property, you should know your disclosure rights in any conventional or unconventional sale.
