What Is a Short Sale?
A short sale means you are upside down on payments—you owe more than what you can currently pay off. The greatest advantage of a short sale is that you can avoid foreclosure and prevent a negative mark from showing on your credit report.
The key to having a successful short sale is to retain a knowledgeable Longwood real estate lawyer to handle your case for you.
Can You Stop a Short Sale?
- The seller decides to cancel the listing, which is agreed upon by the selling agent
- The seller receives a higher offer, which they decide to take instead of their current agreement
- A foreclosure takes place, replacing the short sale
You will work out an agreement with your lender that the property will be sold at a cost that is currently less than what you owe on your mortgage.
For obvious reasons, some lenders may have some difficulty seeing eye-to-eye on negotiations, but ultimately, foreclosure is riskier to both you and the lenders. You can find some comfort knowing that many lenders are willing to work with you.
Here is a general outline of the how the process takes place:
- The property is evaluated and valued.
- The short sale application and paperwork are filed.
- The homeowner shows how he or she is having hardship.
- The short sale package is then created.
- The lender reviews the package.
- The short sale receives approval.
- Notary fees
- And other closing costs
