Are you Facing Foreclosure?
Are you considering A Short Sale?
What is a short sale?
Home sellers should consider a short sale when the value of their house or condo is less than the amount of the cumulative balance of their mortgage loans. For example, if your home is worth $200,000, but you have a loan balance of $200,000, then you should consider a short sale.

Although lenders don’t like the idea of a short sale, they realize that a foreclosure is a more time consuming and costly option. In addition, lenders are aware that at anytime, if they choose not to do a short sale, the borrowers can file for bankruptcy. Such cases usually take 3-12 months to sort out, again adding to the lender’s losses.
By accepting a short sale, a home can be sold and the loan taken off their financial books fast. If they pursue a foreclosure, they run the risk of the process taking a substantial amount of time, during which the value of the property might depreciate.
In addition, once a property is foreclosed, it becomes the bank’s property and sold with an agent as a bank owned property. Such properties usually have tons of as-is disclosures, so buyers make low ball offers, further adding to the bank’s losses. Upon foreclosure, the property becomes vacant, which can often result in vandalism, robbery and wear and tear.
In addition, the banks don’t have strong skills in property management. Upon foreclosure, they will have to maintain the lawn, pay for the utilities, insurance, and winterize the property. In the end, they will have to list the home and pay a commission and closing costs anyway.
Now, you can see why banks typically want to go the short sale route and get the mortgage off their books.

How the Short Sale Process Works
After discussing your personal situation and answering any questions , if you feel like moving forward, most lenders require a hardship letter to be written (which we will provide), two most recent months of bank statements, two most recent paystubs, and two prior years of tax returns (only if you filed). We work with them to submit these items with an offer. Typically, banks will assign their in-house short sale negotiator within 30 days, and order an appraisal which they then use to determine how much to accept. In the mean time, they typically hold off on the foreclosure until a decision is made. Once they accept the short sale and the offer, they then will fax a short sale approval stating the conditions. Typically, they pay all the closing costs, they accept less than what is owed, they put in writing also that they will not go after the borrower for any of the losses (called a deficiency judgment). Often, they even provide relocation assistance. So why wait, give us a call so your problems can be solved.
