    • Short Sale Math- Part 3So what is the Short? $261,000 Net Proceeds from sale to new buyer<less> 425,000 Balance due to Lender <$164,000> SHORT Bank take was $ .61 on the dollar (They wrote off 39% of the amount due to them) Copyright © 2012 Davies Company Real Estate
    • Seller Foreclosure Timing-(or the short sale clock ticking)1. Usually after several months with no payments, lender files NOD (Notice of Default). Could be sooner or later than this.2. 90 days later, the lender files Notice of Trustees Sale. Sale date, time & location are made public record.3. No sooner than 21 days later, the foreclosure sale can be held.
    • Seller ConsiderationsInclude:• Do we want to stay in house or move?• Is there a hardship? Pay off the short if they have cash?• Scams?• When to stop making payments?• Neighborhood impact of a short or distress sale?• Shame? Embarrassment? Morality questions?• What are credit, legal, and tax implications of our decision?• Can a sale close in time to beat the foreclosure sale date? Copyright © 2012 Davies Company Real Estate

    • Offer Process for Buyers- Can take 2-6 monthsA. Qualify with a lender and/or have cash to purchaseB. Find house & make offerC.

Agent pursues approval with each lender and lienholder, sends updated paperwork as months progress.F. Lender makes decision, additional lenders make decisionG. THEN in last 30-45 days Escrow opens, buyer’s deposit into escrow, buyer investigates propertyH. Escrow closes, before the foreclosure sale date
    • Buyers- What can go wrong?• Low Rates, but lending standards are tight• For new loan, appraisals can come in under price, lender may not approve property• Unexpected monthly expenses: property taxes at old value• Buyer can be asked to kick in $ to deal for seller expenses• Foreclosure sale comes too fast• Lender can reject deal or stall, or even sell loan mid-transaction• Agent not knowledgeable, doesn’t anticipate well• Loans recorded on wrong property• Hardship doubtful or unbelievable? Uncooperative sellers• Sellers sometimes change their minds, due to tax/legal/debt consequences• Inspections can have unpleasant surprises Copyright © 2012 Davies Company Real Estate
