Short Sales - Easy to Understand What they are but, Difficult to know how to get through one!
I came across this Blog originally written by Fernando of Maryland. He did such a great job explaining short sales with his visuals. So often I ask buyers if they know what a short sale is and most of the time they don't.
This is a great illustration and really helps consumers understand how it feels to be in this situation. If you're feeling this way and think a short sale might be for you, contact your local Real Estate Professional for help.
Definition of a Short Sale:
A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the sale proceeds fall short of the balance owed on the property's loan. It often occurs when a borrower cannot pay the mortgage loan on their property, but the lender decides that selling the property at a moderate loss is better than pressing the borrower. Both parties cFonsent to the short sale process, because it allows them to avoid foreclosure, which involves hefty fees for the bank and poorer credit report outcomes for the borrowers. This agreement, however, does not necessarily release the borrower from the obligation to pay the remaining balance of the loan, known as the deficiency.
