Long term owner goes Ponzi

I am always saddened by the cases of home owners who bought before the 00s who doubled or tripled their mortgage balances and lost their houses. I can understand the Ponzis of the 00s. The new loan owners of that era saw mortgages as consumption and didn't know a different market. The people who weathered the storm of the early 90s were forced to be frugal because there was no appreciation to spend. They did not form bad habits from the beginning. Their spending sprees were learned behavior. They knew better.

  • The previous owner of today's featured property paid $290,000 on 12/29/1995. Their mortgage information is not available, but it was likely an 80% mortgage and 20% down.
  • They refinanced on 8/12/2002 with a $300,000 first mortgage.
  • On 1/30/2004 they went Ponzi and refinanced with a $585,000 first mortgage.
  • On 4/29/2005 they followed with a $131,416 HELOC.
  • Total property debt was $716,416.
  • Total mortgage equity withdrawal is $484,416.
  • Total squatting time was about 16 months, assuming the NOD was filed 3 months after the borrower went delinquent.

Foreclosure Record
Recording Date: 01/28/2010
Document Type: Notice of Sale

Foreclosure Record

The new owner is a flipper. It appears they paid for a full renovation of the property. They are also looking for a healthy profit. Will they get it?
