Mortgage Problems? Tips That Can Help. Contact: Mark Schreier Licensed Sales Person Century 21 Prevete Real Estate For More Info (516) 263-9094

Homeownership isn’t always a happily ever after story. There are times when owners can no longer meet their mortgage obligations. In this case, there are several options.

One is foreclosure. In this scenario, buyers have a grace period where they can stay in the home and try to make good on their outstanding debts. Eventually, if they are unable to reverse their current course, the bank or lender will evict the owner, reclaim the home and place it on the market for sale.

A second, lesser-known option is called a short sale. Here the lender agrees to take a loss on the home in exchange for recouping most of what is owed to them. In other words, if you owe $90,000 on your mortgage, your bank may agree to take $80,000 and consider the debt paid. The benefit for the lender is that the case is expedited and closed without the added expense of a foreclosure proceeding. Of course the seller would not see any profit from the sale.
If you find yourself in such a position, research the short sale option further. Start by using online resources to learn about the agreement. If you think it is feasible for you, consult with your lender and a real estate attorney who is familiar with this arrangement

When you closed on your home, you surely did not envision yourself in this situation. Unforeseen circumstances, such as a job loss, can put you in a position you never imagined. It is imperative that you look at all options, including bankruptcy, foreclosure and the short sale before you select the one that will work best for you.

Free Energy Efficiency Analysis for Morton Ranch Owners

LI Green Begins Energy Efficiency Study of Plainview New York

Plainview, NY - LI Green is looking for a few good houses, sixteen actually, located within a specific neighborhood in Plainview New York. Engineers at LI Green, a not for profit organization affiliated with the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center at Stony Brook University, has built community methods to greatly reduce the use of energy by homes on Long Island. The organization looks for help from homeowners in Plainview to assist in this effort.

“Long Island’s homeowners face tremendous economic pressure due to out of control energy costs,” stated Richard Turan, one of the founders of LI Green. “LI Green has action plans to finally do something about this. The Plainview Energy Efficiency Study is one of the first steps.”

Chuck Schwartz, the second founder of the LI Green organization said, “LI Green is studying homes in the Plainview neighborhood south of Old Country Road bordered by the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway, Plainview Road and Haypath Road. This neighborhood is being analyzed to determine strategies for economical ways to achieve significant reductions of energy use and pollution within Long Island communities.”
Participating homes will receive a no cost energy analysis of their home. This study will include a survey for energy efficiency improvements, infrared thermo graphic study and utility bill analysis. Information collected in these studies will be utilized in community wide efforts.
More information about this project and a signup form is available at

“Every homeowner on Long Island understands the value of making their residence more energy efficient,” continued Mr. Turan. “The challenge is implementation, getting the work done. The LI Green plan being fine tuned in Plainview will significantly impact this entire region.”
