Real Estate as Retirement Investment

Many of you don’t realize how lucky your grandparents/parents were in the 1970s. They were able to purchase a much bigger home than the one you have now, with a much bigger property, but for a much lower price than you would pay today. Are any of you wondering how this was possible? Well let me tell you how! You see, the average house in 1975 would sell for $57,581. After 1975 the price for an average home increased by almost $5,000 a year and in ten years the price almost doubled! The market inflated until 1989 when the average house would eventually sell for $273,698. So, if you would have bought a house in 1975 and sold it in 1989 you would have made more than $200,000 just for living in the house for 14 years. Just imagine if you had bought more than one house, lived in one of them, and rented the other, you could be rich! If only our ancestors were more aware of the housing market and inflation, even we their grandchildren could be benefiting from their success.

Foreclosure Process in British Columbia Canada

Foreclosure Process in British Columbia Canada is legal procedure when the property owners fails to make mortgage payments and the Lender is in legal process to recover their investments.The word foreclosure means to deprive a borrower [in default] of the right to redeem the mortgaged property.  In British Columbia, the foreclosure process it is a Judicial Sale.

foreclosure process

It is also an extinguishment. In legal terms, this means to pay off and satisfy in full, or to nullify. In a sense, a foreclosure is like a divorce proceeding, where the borrower and the lender become divorced under the mortgage terms. All of the foreclosures in British Columbia are subject to Judicial Sale proceedings. The lender can apply to the British Columbia Supreme Court for a judicial sale, also known as Court-ordered sale, which will then be carried out under strict Court orders.

The foreclosure begins with a demand letter, which offers the property-owner a very short time-frame in which to pay out the mortgage. In simple language, the lender is saying that the property-owner must pay up, or get sued. The next step is a petition filed in the British Columbia Supreme Court registry, where the foreclosure action begins.

Being a Canadian real estate investor, it is important to know the whole process so that a real estate investor can assist the panicked property owner, as well as the lender to resolve the default.

The Order Nisi serves to establish the time of redemption. The redemption period is the time period in which the property-owner can redeem the mortgage, as well as the amount required. The redemption period is usually set at six months. There are exceptions where the redemption period can be reduced to one single day, subject to the approval of the Courts.

When a lender applies for an Order Nisi, they will apprise the Court of the current value of the property, and ensure that it is high enough to satisfy the cost of the sale and claim off the property-owner. If the property is sold by the Courts, the lender is entitled to recover the difference between the sale proceeds and the mortgage debt from the property-owner.

Once a lender has been granted a conduct of sale, they act in the role of the lender pursuant to the Court order, solely for the disposition of the assets. They also have the right to list the property with a realtor on MLS.

When a potential buyer wants to make an offer through the realtor, the offer is prepared and directed at one of the lenders. At that point, the realtor confirms that the potential buyer will be negotiating with the lender, and the deal may be possible once the offer is also presented in the Courts. The offer can be subject to a sealed bid process.

The foreclosure process in British Columbia can be very complex, time-consuming, and very expensive for all the parties concerned.
