Short Sale


A short sale is when a lender agrees to accept an amount less than the payoff on a loan actually is. In most cases the home owner owes more on their property than it is currently worth. A seller must qualify for a short sale by proving a hardship, mainly a financial hardship.

The advantage of doing a short sale vs. a foreclosure is that a foreclosure will impact your credit far more than a short sale.  Some banks do not even report short sales. In the event of a foreclosure, a lender can seek a deficiency judgement in the amount that you owe, meaning they can come after your assets, other properties and even your car. Your credit recovers quicker with a short sale, less than two years, whereas,  a foreclosure or bankruptcy can take seven to ten years.

You can now get cash back from a short sale for relocation expenses. As part of the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA), qualified home owners can get $3,000 back and some lender are offering even more. Click here to learn more about HAFA.

BE PATIENT! If you have come to an agreement with a seller to buy a short-sale property, the seller’s lender, or lenders; if more there is more than one mortgage, must approve the sale before you can close on the home. Typically when there is only one mortgage, lender approval takes about two months, but could take more. If there is more than one mortgage with different lenders, it can take up to four months or longer for lenders to approve the sale.

Have Your Financing In Order Lenders like to see cash offers, but even if you are not able to pay all cash for a short sale property, it is important to show you are well qualified and you have financing in order. If you have obtained pre-approval,  if you have a large down payment, and you can close at any time, your offer will be viewed more favorably than a buyer’s  financing that is less secure.

You don’t have any contingencies Say if you have a home to sell before you can close on the purchase of the short sale property—or you need to be in your newhome by a specific date, a short sale may not be for you. Lenders like no-contingency offers with flexible closing terms.
