About Short Sales

What is a Short Sale?

A short sale is when a home that sells for less than the mortgage loan is worth.  This is accomplished by providing proper documentation to the lender(s) to convince them to reduce the mortgage balance to allow the sale.  The goal of a short sale is to help you avoid foreclosure if you are no longer able or willing to retain your home.  Our job is to convince the lender to approve the reduced sales price and forgive any deficiency in the remaining mortgage balance or work with them to develop the best option for you.

What is in it for the Homeowner?

  • Allow the seller to walk away free and clear, without any deficiency judgment from your lender for the difference between what you owe and what your home sells for
  • Sell your house without foreclosing or going bankrupt
  • Stop those harassing phone calls

What are some of the differences between foreclosures and short sales?

Short Sales result in credit score reductions typically between zero and 200 points, but a foreclosure typically results in credit score reductions between 200  to 400 points, and is reflected in your credit report for 7 to 10 years.  Both options damage your credit, but a Short Sale is significantly less damaging. The seller can typically purchase again in 24-36 months.
