Selling Your Home Via A Short Sale

If you are in a situation in which you can no longer afford your home, are behind in your home payments, are going into foreclosure, then a short sale may be the best option for you. Your bank might approve of a short sale because the option of the foreclosure process can cost them a lot of time and money.  Banks usually get more proceeds from a short sale than a foreclosure sale.

In a proper short sale, the bank would get the proceeds from the sale, and you would be forgiven the rest of the debt owed on the home.  You will avoid a foreclosure and the bad credit that goes with a foreclosure. The closing costs of the sale will be absorbed by the lender -including sales commissions -- so selling the home short will not cost you anything.

What's the catch?  You do have to qualify for the short sale.  You need to have a financial hardship that makes you  unable to pay your mortgage.  The lender will want to see all of your financial info including bank statements, tax returns, and paycheck stubs.  Financial hardships would include things such as:

Loss of employment, or reduction in pay

Death of a spouse

Medical bills

Health issues that prevent you from working


Job relocation.

The first step is to list your home for sale so that we can start the process.  We use a professional negotiator that has a ton of experience in assisting us with the bank negotiations.  We will obtain an offer quickly so that the short sale package can be sent to the bank, and so that you are not inconvenienced by a bunch of buyers traipsing through your home.
