Preforeclosure w/ lots of equity but has multiple liens/loans

3 Replies

I am a new investor. I came across a property with lots of equity (about $520k), but it has loans totaling over $2M. I think the loans are for a business or something else. It doesn't say but it shows up under mortgage on the report. Is there any way I would be able to buy the property and get the owner equity but not have the loans attached to the property?

Here are the numbers:

Original Loan Amount


Loan Balance


Judgement Amount


Estimated Value




This is the mortgage history:

Recording Date                         Loan Description                                                   Loan Amount
2/26/200Fixed Rate$30,000.00
12/4/2003Fixed Rate$210,000.00
10/24/2005Construction Variable$850,000.00
10/18/2006Variable$1,000,000.00 $120,000.00
1/8/2009Fixed Rate$417,000.00
1/20/2010Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) Variable$200,000.00
7/15/2011Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) Variable$350,000.00
9/19/2012Construction Unknown$900,000.00

Probably not. But, If you are into challenges, empty the ocean with a teaspoon. It makes as much sense. ;-)

Well, with the other mtgs, it has No equity.

You are using the term "equity" where it would not apply in your scenario. There is no equity based on what you posted. Looks like they took out a land loan, then a construction loan, then permanent financing, then threw in a couple of equity lines and then got into trouble. Which is where you would be in my opinion if you went down the rabbit hole of pursuing this property based on the assumption of equity.

The "original" loan amount means nothing whatsoever.
