What is a Short Sale?

A short sale occurs when a homeowner sells their property for less than the amount owed to the Lender.
A short sale requires the approval of the Lender(s), PMI company or government agency, (a third party).  

What is a Hardship?

A hardship is a life changing event for a homeowner which results in their inability to make their mortgage payments.

What is HAFA?

HAFA - Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative is a Government created program to help the Homeowner AVOID the difficult foreclosure process  - and the Lender MUST release the Seller of any unpaid balance on their mortgage. 

If an Owner/Seller qualifies for the HAFA program they will receive $3000 to re-locate. 

One of the requirements for HAFA is that you owner occupy the property.

How do I know if I qualify for a short sale?

Call us today for a confidential interview - we have advanced our education and help you determine if your Lender will consider you for their short sale program.

What is required from me if I decide to short sale my home?

Sign a listing agreement, (our commission and Seller closing costs are paid by your Lender).

Cooperate with access, showings, offers and your Realtor.

Provide all written documentation of hardship as requesxted by your Lender(s) and Realtor.

If I am behind on payments, or have been notified of a foreclosure - can I still short sale my home and stay in it?

YES,  YES - Please don't hesitate to call us today ... and don't move out of your home - please.  You can leave your home with dignity - and again - there are relocation fees available for Homeowners, from many of the Lenders.  Your Lender does not want to foreclose on your home - allow us to show you how and why.

How will a short sale impact my credit verses a foreclosure?

A foreclosure will have a HUGE impact on your credit and will not be removed from your credit report.  If you "walk away" and allow a foreclosure to happen, it can take 7-10 years before you can buy another home.  The wait time for a short sale, if you are in default differ, depending on the loan you have, wait time to purchase another home is usually 2 - 3 years, some instances less, it depends on your circumstances.

What other options do I have?

Forebearance agreement; Loan modification; Deed in lieu of foreclosure.  A short sale is one of the best options available to you, if you cannot qualify for a refinance or loan modification and we recommend it before a DIL.
