Short Sale Process explained!
Avoid Foreclosure by negotiating with the bank and sell your home for less than you owe.
 
Why a Short Sale?
 
Properties nationwide have declined at a rapid pace and unemployment has risen. This has created an unavoidable scenario. Homeowners can't afford their mortgage and a regular sale will not cover the amount owed. Lenders have gone bankrupt due to the non traditional loans given during the good times and now find themselves with a growing list of REO properties, crippling legal fees and balance sheets unacceptable to their share-holders. The average foreclosure costs a bank over $50,000!!
A successful short-sale transaction can be a win-win for the homeowner and lender, avoiding a much more costly foreclosure process for the bank and allowing the homeowner avoid destruction of their credit with a foreclosure.
 
Some important facts to be aware of!
 
Short Sales can require many hours of negotiation and you definitely need some patience! Please be aware that short-sales will typically take 3-4 months to complete and many lenders are inundated with short-sale requests every day. We have the experience required to navigate this territory and have relationships with many regional and national banks so we know our way around the process.
