Housing Prices on Long Island Decrease

The sale prices of homes on Long Island went down in the month of August. This is compared to the price that homes sold for one year ago. The medium sale price for a home in Nassau County was $420,000. This represents a reduction of 4.5 % from last year. The medium sale price for a home in Suffolk County in August of 2011 was $324,000. This was only $1,000 less than that home would have sold for in August of 2010.

A Stabilizing Market

Real estate experts have indicated that the market for single family homes on Long Island is stabilizing. This is another way of saying that the amount of decline in home values is slowly leveling off.

Rock Bottom Prices

Buyers today are looking for rock bottom prices before they will buy a home. Has the market bottomed out? One can never be sure as to what the real estate market is going to do. The major issues involved in the real estate market relate to national and local economic decisions. The unemployment rate has a significant impact on the real estate market. The consensus among families as to the future of their employment prospects impacts on the real estate market. Worries and fears about recessions impact the real estate market. Job security issues have a negative impact on the real estate market. Home values have been going down on Long Island for more than four years. When will the bleeding stop?

Foreclosure Defense and Bankruptcy Lawyer

The law office of Elliot Schlissel handles foreclosure defense for homeowners. We litigate all aspects of foreclosure proceedings including, but not limited to, defective foreclosure lawsuits,defective mortgagespredatory lending issuesbad faith, and other real estate legal issues. We attend foreclosure court conferencesfor the clients we represent. We also assist our clients in the preparation of mortgage modification applications, as well as deal with mortgage modification programs that are unresponsive to our clients’ needs.

In certain situations, foreclosure related bankruptcies can be utilized to stop foreclosures from moving forward. Upon filing either a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the bankruptcy court issues an automatic stay that stops the foreclosure lawsuit from moving forward. It should be noted that bankruptcy proceedings are brought in the United States Bankruptcy Court, while foreclosure proceedings are brought in New York State Courts.

For our clients who file bankruptcy, we can sometimes eliminate second mortgages. We also can assist our clients in re-establishing their credit after filing bankruptcy. Should you have questions as to what type of bankruptcy would be appropriate for you or whether there is other alternatives related to foreclosure defense, feel free to contact us. At your initial free consultation, we will discuss all of your foreclosure options. We look forward to seeing you again on our foreclosure blog.
