Karl Falk, CEO of Summit Mitigation joins us on this episode…
You need to understand the fundamentals of the market to be able to get an idea of what is going to happen in the future. We talk Non-performing loans (NPL’s) pre-foreclosure, (37% of all loans = $14million loans) the bulk of which were originated between 2004 and 2008… these were the Ninja loans where you have a pulse you get a loan situation. These loans are at a high risk level and are still impacting the real estate market today. These loans are at high interest rates and did not re-fi with historically low interest rates. This reflects, people still under water by more than 25% on their loans.
We discuss the opportunities for agents and brokers servicing short sales, foreclosures, and npl’s. The whole we have to dig out of is far deeper than initially thought.
