The way it works in VA (even for mortgage companies, banks, etc., unless you do some tricky manuvering) is that all defaulted property goes for auction. It does not have to sell for the balance owed, and it does not revert to the previous owner, just the monies do. So in order to assure that you get your money, you can actually buy back your property and then re-sell it. Since Mom owes no money, and since we have had decent offers on it, even if I buy it back, I'll probably have it sold in less than a month. If someone bids enough to make sense, then I won't bid, and we'll get the money.

I knew your answer would be reasonable.  It just seems so convoluted!!  Good luck!!  And sorry you won't get to MF.

it is weird, I admit. I don't know if any other state does it that way. Doesn't seem fair somehow to me. I mean, my Mom owned that property outright. Le sigh.

Does your Mom hold the mortgage on the house. My DD & I (I am the silent partner) buy foreclosures, but we never finance for the buyer when we re-sell them.

Wolvie's picture

yep. She holds the lien/mortgage. The problem is, she didn't know about Va must auction law for real estate. Le sigh. Huge PITA.

At art auctions there are folks there on their cell phones with the real buyer. Any chance you could arrange it that way?

Just trying to see you again.

Cheers,

Peter

Check your email, rhea...RuthAnn and I could use a roommate, and since she's a Repooblican and I'm a Dubya basher, you can have your pick of politics! 


Wolvie, that bites.  Sorry, girl, but we'll see you next time.

Well, drat and darn.  You already said we won't discuss the "h" word.  Guess we'll just have to gossip about Mean.

Well, we can, I just figured no one would want to talk about that...it's kinda gross.

You know, we got along just fine last time...see there can be real bipartisanship if we just try!  (And I agree, the "h" word is gross.  No arguments there!)

What in the world is the h word? And why is it gross?

Meanie, since it looks like I will not raise enough money prostituting myself to fly out there( in fact I had to give a refund just yesterday) I want you to promise me that you will behave in a disorderly fashion and overexcess in all indulgences-JUST FOR ME!!!!!!

Sorry you will not be attending.  Save up for next year.


Misbehavior is guaranteed.

You realize, of course, that Li is in charge of posting bail for any of us who might get hauled in for disorderly conduct.  Bless her heart.

the rule is that one must always post bail for friends....

I agree!  We are actually quite serene and reserved when we go to Meaniefest.  Most of our time is spent in meditation and silent prayer, with a little fasting thrown in to make us spiritually strong.  You're really not missing much.  ;)


(But you need to come next year, anyway!)

Can you say 'liquid diet'?

Shhh...we don't want everyone to know!  I figure whatever we do in the corner is strictly our business.  Besides, I like the idea of having a lawyer along.  After Li posts bail, Pomona can represent us (unless, of course, she is locked up with us, and I'm not sure what the protocol would be in that case!)

I've already started packing...wish I could be leaving tomorrow!  Besides, I figure that if I pack three days in advance, surely even my feeble mind will be able to remember everything I need sometime before I leave...although I wouldn't bet on it!

I remembered last night another side trip to take -- the crepe stand at Pike Place. Crepes with Nutella, yum. And Mario Batali's Dad's Salumeria. And the Chinese dim sum take-out across the street from Pike Place. And. . .

Somebody put a stop payment on my reality check!

Yummmmm...I love crepes.  Count me in!  (Unless I'm behind bars or something, of course.)
