David Petrovich, Executive Director for Society For Preservation
of Continued Homeownership, a 501c3 tax exempt charitable and educational organization,
and founding member of SPOCHs Homekeeper Advisory Services, teaches financially
distressed homeowners how to cope with their mortgage problem, predatory lenders, and
speculative investors who prey on those who face the loss of their home to mortgage or tax
foreclosure. His career in real estate spans 20 years during which time he has
investigated allegations of predatory lending, mortgage loan servicing error, fraud, and
untoward realty transactions for the Mortgage Bankers Association of America. He has
served as mortgage loan servicing expert in Federal Courts (New Jersey, New York, and
Pennsylvania) and has been involved (directly or indirectly) in thousands of
preforeclosure mortgage loan workouts, including loan modifications, preforeclosure sales,
preforeclosure short sales, and REO sales transactions.
He frequently contributes to the New York Times Real Estate Q & A, CNNs Money, Wall Street Journals MarketWatch, Blogging Stocks, and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs including, but not limited to segments on FOX Business TV, CN8 TV Meet the Newsmakers, local cable TV, Los Angeles Business Talk Radio, and Boston Business Radio. His recommendations and advice appear in newspapers and magazines nationwide including the San Francisco Chronicle, the Chicago Tribune, and Christian Science Monitor. His Blog, ForeclosureFocusUSA - The Unvarnished Truth, and column are featured in The Atlantic Gazette.
Published in 2006, Short Sales: An Ethical Approach , is a procedural primer for real estate brokers, brokers agents, homeowners and speculative real estate investors explaining how to properly construct preforeclosure, and preforeclosure short sales while facilitating foreclosed homeowners best interests.
His latest book, Fight Foreclosure! How to Cope With a Mortgage You Can't Pay, Negotiate With Your Bank, and Save Your Home! (Wiley & Sons - 2008) which received rave reviews from The Los Angeles Times, and Pepperdine Universitys School of Business, and others, was written in response to the predicted collapse of real estate markets and the growing foreclosure problem throughout the United States. In retrospect, he admits he underestimated the Subprime Chernobyl's impact on mortgage loan servicing practices.
You should consult with an attorney at law and a certified public accountant before entering into any agreement to sell your home, refinance your mortgage, or agree to the terms for a loan modification.
