Short Sale Real Estate Transactions
A short sale is when a homeowner sells their property for less than the amount owed to the lender, and this often happens when there is a risk of foreclosure. Lenders typically don’t like short sales. However, a lender may agree to accept less than what is owed when the mortgage is in default. Depending on the net proceeds offered by the sale, the lender may decide to accept an offer, especially if the net proceeds are expected to meet or exceed what the lender would receive after reselling the property after foreclosure. A good real estate lawyer who regularly handles short sales will know how to best present the information to the lender, increasing the likelihood of a favorable decision. With a short sale, a homeowner may have a chance to rebuild their credit sooner. They also might possibly qualify to purchase a new home again in the future much sooner than if their home had gone through foreclosure. Short sale attorney Renee Roman has the knowledge and experience to advise you on the best options for your particular situation.
