Foreclosures in Dennis MA - Jan 1 thru Nov 15 2016

Foreclosures in Dennis MA from January 1 thru November 15, 2016

Wow, lots of foreclosures were started in Dennis MA this year, even though property is usually able to sell before it forecloses. Even as a short sale, property can usually be sold before it gets foreclosed on. I often receive inquiries about foreclosures on Cape Cod. If you need help, Holly and Heath know how to help

In the town of Dennis this year, from January 1, 2016 and November 15, 2016 there have been forty-one properties that had an Order of Notice recorded. The order of notice is the first recorded step in the foreclosure process. This is a formal public notice that a borrower has not kept the payments current and that the lender is planning to foreclose.

Once this is recorded, there are other steps that the lender needs to take correctly before the foreclosure can take place. Up until the recording, only the borrower and the lender know the true status of the loan. Upon the recording of the order of notice, the public is now informed that this property is going to go through the foreclosure process.

For this time period - January 1, 2016 and November 15, 2016 - the twenty-six properties in the recorded land section of the Barnstable Registry of Deeds for the town of Dennis, MA, are too numerous to specify here. The original mortgages can be found in the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds. Be careful to check for assignments of those mortgages, and to make sure that the filer of the Order of Notice is the correct owner of the mortgage being foreclosed on. If you need help, I know how to easily search for them.

The Land Court section of the Barnstable Registry of Deeds for the town of Dennis, MA has fifteen more order of notices recorded. Those addresses are too numerous to list here. The original mortgages can be found in the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds. Be careful to check for assignments of those mortgages, and to make sure that the filer of the Order of Notice is the correct owner of the mortgage being foreclosed on. All the assignments would need to be confirmed to make sure who has the right to foreclose.

Over the decades that I have been selling real estate on Cape Cod, I have been able to help buyers buy foreclosures. However, the process is tedious, and the transaction process is usually not for the inexperienced investor. If this is a first time purchase, using an experienced real estate professional can help a buyer understand the process and learn what are normal steps and what are unusual distractions.

The foreclosure laws changed this year, and the trend appears to be that more foreclosures are starting to be processed. Banks have been given a little more leeway in the foreclosure process requirements in MA. While the lenders may be able to act sooner and with less restrictive requirements from the Massachusetts government, it is still a process with multiple steps that must be carefully followed. Once completed, the foreclosing entity may market the property. Finding foreclosures early in the process can help an investor plan projects and stay busy. Identifying the correct properties which are in trouble is the first step in that planning process.

Properties that show up in MLS being identified as foreclosures have already traveled through the foreclosure process. Once listed in the MLS, they are again for sale. Buying a foreclosed property must also be carefully researched, so that the process can be verified for correctness and validity of title. A good attorney will be able to see if everything is correct. And, title insurance is a good idea at the closing, for any buyer of foreclosures.

If you need a an experienced, full time real estate professional to help you find or buy foreclosures, I'd be glad to work for you.
