Mortgage fraud on the rise

As the economy gets tough you will start to see more and more people doing anything to make a quick buck. There are a bunch of charlatans trying to screw people out of their possessions. Mortgage fraud is a very popular type of fraud. The following has happened to all of us! You get in your car and you see a little card for mortgage modification. While a business card might look professional, you have no idea how reputable they are. More and more people today are not doing their research about real estate companies despite the fact of having an amazing tool such as the internet. In most cases all it takes is a simple Google search to find out.

If you are a home owner you might not help but feel a bit worried about this. Its ok. Just know there are people out there who can help you fix this. The first thing homeowners think of doing is suing. But at times it can be hard to find out who to sue. Some of these scam companies are not real companies. They are not incorporated. We have heard of some cases where a private investigator was hired by the affected family to find out all of the details of the offender. While it might not be feasible for everyone to do this there is an alternative. Like we said before all it might take is just some looking around in the web.

mansionSometimes when you buy a home you have no idea what the previous owner might have done with it. That’s why here at Housing Expert we always recommend you do thorough research. There has been lots of cases where couples or families bought what they believed to be their dream home only to find out its not. Usually homes like these attract some bad attention from the wrong kind of people. Sometimes when you are on Zillow its very easy to get mesmerized by all of the eye candy in a home. But its always a great idea to look into a homes past and find out what has taken place there. Not only for this reason but find out what construction has take place here or even additions. Its illegal in most states to have construction in your house with out the proper permits. If no permits were requested you run the risk of illegal and not up to code work.

A adult websites has recently been doing a social media push about this topic. You can see more of this on Luv2Skeet’s YouTube and their Twitter. You see all of the content you see on this guys blogger website.

Do research before you buy your home!
