The Times They are a Changing....
If you go to your Property Search Screen, you will find there are new sale locations in your drop-down menu.
You will also see some of the old locations removed as time goes by.
These are adjustments we are making as the courthouses phase out as sale locations.
The new locations and new NTS filings also are adding a different wrinkle.
You will see new notices of trustee sale come out as trustees move the sales to new locations on existing
We are also seeing more republishing than in previous years due to sales being contested and trustees having to
cancel sales and file a new NTS under the same file number in response to legal proceedings and files going beyond
one year from the original sale date.
Such changes are making it difficult to track a sale, especially as the websites who carry information can often feature
the results of the old sale as well as the new sale information. If these records contain the same APN and TS Number,
It can create confusion. We often see two records for the same sale on the posting sites when this happens.
Our tip is this: Look at the most recent documents. Every profile has an added or listed date, which refers to the date it was posted on our website. This is BIG. Refer to the most recent NTS ONLY. It will have the current info. on the sale date and location. If for any reason it appears that the sale date has not yet passed, but we are showning a SOLD or SOLD TO BENEFICIARY or CANCELLED status, call us. We are scrubbing our data for these anomalies by removing the older record, but it is possible to miss some, as we have so many these days.
We will review and correct the record upon request if we have not done so already.
Please keep us informed if you hear of any additional changes. And we will do the same for you.

We are currently adding new sale locations, as www.Auction.Com is now holding Trustee's Sales.
More importantly, the public locations where auctions have been held for decades are becoming off limits.
The reasons for this are varied, but it is part of a concerted movement to move the auctions to private locations.
As these changes occur we will keep you posted. The sales will continue, and the bargains are excellent.
Examples from today:
Duplex at 5408 S. Manhattan Pl in Los Angeles
Est Value: $522,400.00 Est Bid: $675,422.00 Opening Bid: $188,000.00 Sold: $188,000.01 !!!

Sounds like a sweet deal doesn't it?
But wait. There's more.
This was an HOA lien from 2/32011 that foreclosed. This was not a loan.
Our profile for this property shows two loans that are "Senior", which means older than the lien.
The loans are from 9/28/2005. And they were not wiped out by the foreclosure.
A First TD for $268,000.00, plus a Second TD for $33,500.00 add up to $301,500.00 in Senior Loans.
The new owner is upside-down and must make payments or lose the property to foreclosure.
Always know your property, and always ask questions before you buy.
A wise investor would not spend more that $125,000.00 on such a property.

See Sign On San Diego, published today, 7-11-11.... Read an Article by Lily Leung entitled...
"Foreclosure Auctions Banned from Courthouse Steps"
Here are a few comments from us, but you should read her article and make your own opinion.
These are not direct quotes, but a response to the article itself:
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department is the latest local government entity to deem Foreclosure Auctions a nuisance on their watch. They have pushed for and gotten a ban from Superior Court Judge Kevin A. Enright on Trustee's Sales on the San Diego Courthouse grounds. In our opinion, this is not an effort to stop the auction process in San Diego County, it is an effort to save nominal budget costs and compel the lenders to provide their own security.
As the article states, Riverside and Los Angeles County Employees have already forced the Trustees attempting to hold lawful sales in their jurisdictions to move to alternate locations. While this demonstrates a concerted effort by the public employees in the state to cut their excess workloads and stop providing security for the sales at public facilities, it will not stop the sales themselves.
What we are likely to see are more independent auction venues, like we see from companies like www.Auction.com .
If that is the case, costs related to security may end up being added to the cost of a foreclosure, as it is the county government which is now creating this additional cost for lenders. We are also likely to see efforts by counties and cities to charge for permits and fees for these independent venues as their inability to fix their broken budgets becomes more pronounced. We will be watching these changes closely. It is clearly a work in progress.
