Flippers in Trouble Gallery

Just a few of the 300 or so Sacramento flippers in trouble. The pictures speak for themselves:

I see a lot of price reductions like this on Long Island as well. And a lot of the houses just sit and sit.

This market is amazing. Today I see Beazer Homes is offering $1,000 down, $1,000/mon loan payment at Fieldstone Meadows in Folsom. I did a quick calculation on this scam. 100% financing with a neg amortization ARM 80% 1st mortgage and an interest only 2nd mortgage. I had to use a MAGNIFYING GLASS to read the fine print and then did the calculations:
In 5-years, your loan payment (including PITI) goes to $3510/mon and your loan balance is $553,298! The first year builder incentive is $30,692. I hope no one really falls for this!

I'm just amazed that there's still a secondary market for these loan products (and thus companies still willing to "underwrite" them). Are there still people out there who think you can really buy a $500K house for $1K a month?

You guys are right on top of this. Many thanks for your time and effort. People need to read this stuff. I drive around a new subdivision and see young working couples moving into a new house and I just want to rewind their lives about 90 days and show them where things are headed.

Housing Prices will drop to mid 2002 - early 2003 levels

Look at the property at 2427 Snowy Egret.

Sold by developer in early 2004 for $550,000.

Sale price reduced to $495,000. Still no activity

He will have to reduce price to $450,000 which is what the houses sold for in early 2002 - mid 2002 if he wants to unload the place.

Problem is that the homeowner is underwater with the fishes.

I don't think the bank will accept such a low short sale price and will take the place in foreclosure.

The bank will find that they can't sell it and will drop the price to $400,000 to clear it off the books.

All I have to say is "LOOK OUT BELOW" if the middle east war (aka World War III) heats up

Taking the first picture as an example:

Sold 2004-05-06 for $130,000
Sold 2005-11-03 for $300,000

First listed at $309,000 and now cut down to $274,500.

I'd like to hear some guesses as to what this house could sell for around the end of 2007.
