Real Estate Short Sales
There is no problem that can't be overcome
What is a Real Estate Short Sale?
In a short sale, the lender (the bank to which you pay your mortgage) agrees to allow you sell the property for less than what you owe on the loan and to accept the proceeds in exchange for releasing the mortgage lien. A short sale is an option when you have a impending foreclosure. For a lender to agree to accept less money that what is owed to them, you must convince the lender that you’re having financial problems, i.e. that you can’t pay the mortgage, and your only other option is a short sale. Banks have the right to scrutinize your financial statements, and examine your banking records, tax returns, and credit reports.
