Facebook Rolls Out Places - Do you know your privacy settings?

Facebook launched it's new feature "Places" where You can add places, check in to places that already exist, and tag people who are with you.

Read the Facebook Places: A Field Guide from Mashable

A few things to note about Facebook Places:

    • Configure your privacy settings!

      By default, Places I check in to is set so Friends Only can see it.  To change the setting click on Account,then Privacy settings and Customize Settings. 

      Another default setting on the “Customize settings” page is “Include me in ‘People Here Now’ after I check in.” When you check in, your location is visible to your friends and also to anyone else nearby. If you’d rather be more private, you’ll have to opt out of this setting.


      Facebook Places privacy

      Your friends can, by default, check you in without your explicit approval or permission.  Again, go to your privacy settings to change this if you prefer.

Understanding General Guidelines for Loan Underwriting: Bankruptcy, Foreclosure, Pre-Foreclosure, and Short Sales

Guest Blogger: Steven Kitnick, CFAC, CNE, CSP, GRI, RRG
Steve is a Nevada Real Estate Broker-Salesman,  California Real Estate Broker, & Managing Director of Steven Kitnick Seminars, LLC – a real estate continuing education provider. 

Here's a common question from homeowners - especially those dealing with a distressed property...

“How soon will I be able to get a home loan if I file for bankruptcy, let my house go to foreclosure, execute a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, or agree to a short sale?  


The following may assist you in understanding general guidelines used by many underwriting departments:  

Conventional Loans

Chapter 7
(“A type of bankruptcy in which a person’s assets are liquidated – collected and sold- and the proceeds are distributed to the creditors”).  4 years from either the discharge or dismissal date. 

Chapter 13 (“A type of bankruptcy in which a person keeps his assets and pays creditors according to an approved plan”).  2 years from discharge date or 4 years from dismissal date.  If multiple bankruptcies within a 7-year period, it is 5 years from the most recent dismissal date.

Foreclosure is 5 years from completion date.  Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure is 4 years.  Pre-Foreclosure is 2 years from date house closed. If house was a short sale and borrower was not in pre-foreclosure (no 60, 90, 120, or 150 day “lates” in last 12 months), lender can sell the loan to Fannie Mae. The lender/servicer that completed the short sale must NOT have entered into any agreements that obligate the borrower to repay any amounts resulting from the short sale, including a deficiency judgment.


Bankruptcy Chapter 7 – 2 years.  Chapter 13 – 12 months after release. 

Foreclosure or Deed-in-Lieu of is 4 years from completion date.  Pre-Foreclosure is 2 years. Same exception as conventional (above) if not delinquent.

*Exception - If borrower is in a Chapter 13 BK for at least 12 months, has no    “lates” to the trustee and the lender can get a letter from the trustee that it is    okay for them to buy a house, the lender can waive the required time from BK.
