WHAT IS A SHORT SALE ANYWAY??
A short sale is an agreement in which your mortgage lender agrees to accept a payoff on the loan for less than the balance. Many lenders agree to a short sale because they receive more of the loan balance in comparison to the amount they would gain from selling the property following a foreclosure. This process helps in maintaining home values in the community that the property is located in and helps the homeowner maintain a better level of credit compared to a foreclosure. In most cases, homeowners considering a short sale must meet specific criteria to qualify: you must be having trouble making your mortgage payments or are already behind on your mortgage, you must provide evidence of personal and/or financial hardship, and have little or no equity in the property.
Short sales are becoming VERY common in The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. Most regular real estate transactions involve the home seller and their real estate agent, the buyer and their lender, and their real estate agent. In a short sale situation, all of those parties in addition to an Investor (Me), the seller’s loan servicer (The Banks), any junior lien holders (second mortgages,) and insurers may be involved too.
With so many parties involved in a short sale, the process can be difficult to complete without a qualified real estate expert to guide you and act as a liaison between all of the parties involved.
