Closing a Shortsale

  2. 2. What is a Short Sale?  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 consent 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.

What is the First Step in the Short Sale process? Determine if the Seller is going to Qualify? Factors: Lender list of information, prove inability to pay the balance. Why is it a Short Sale instead of a Foreclosure? Find out who the listing agent is and what Short Sale experience do they have.
