What is a Short Sale in real estate?
A short sale is a type of transaction that can occur when a homeowner is typically in financial hardship and must sell their property. In a short sale, all lenders and lien holders must agree to accept a payoff of less than what is owed on the property in order to avoid a typically inevitable foreclosure proceeding.
What are the benefits of a short sale?
A short sale is not the best option for every home owner in hardship, but it is certainly the most logical for most. Many of the alternatives such as loan modifications or repayment plans are like putting a band-aid on a hemorrhage, as they usually only delay the inevitable. Foreclosure and bankruptcy also have very significant long term consequences. A deed in lieu of foreclosure shows up on credit, and can even leave a borrower liable to repay their lender for losses in the future. Here are a few good reasons why a short sale may be the best alternative:
- In most cases, we are able to get relocation money back from your lender in order to do a short sale. This is typically a few thousand dollars, however we have helped home owners get as much as $40,000 back at closing in the past.
- A home owner can typically recover from a short sale in two years and be ready to purchase again with a Fannie Mae backed loan. A foreclosure can make it impossible for seven years.
- A short sale is free for you, and is an “as-is” sale. You will not be required to make any repairs to the property or pay any closing costs at all, including traditional Realtor fees. There is no cost at all to have The Orrico Team, your Plainfield Short Sale Realtors, by your side.
- In many fields, especially financial or government sectors of employment, a foreclosure can effect current and future employment. A short sale is not even public record.
- In a short sale, your lender will provide an approval letter that can offer full forgiveness of the debt and release you from repayment.. In a foreclosure, a lender can pursue a deficiency judgement against you years in the future in most cases. Because of this liability, a foreclosure often forces many into bankruptcy.
You can also view all options available to home owners who are in a hardship type situation. For more on the impact a foreclosure can have on your credit and financial future, we have a graph that shows the benefits of a short sale vs foreclosure as well.
