Short Sale - 5.16.2012

By
Real Estate Mortgage Broker with Source Capital Funding, Inc.

 

What is a short sale? Some of you know that I am learning as I go, as I work with Arizona and California hard money lender, Source Capital. I feel lucky to know Source Capital partners, Sacha Ferrandi and Pat Hook of San Diego County. They are real estate loan experts and I definitely am not! They have become a valuable resource to me and my education process. I mention this, because they are available as a resource for you, as well.

Ready to buy again? Don't let a previous short sale, foreclosure, bankruptcy or other "bad credit" situation get in your way. Contact Source Capital's private loan specialists!


From the information I have gathered, I have now learned, a short sale is an alternative to a foreclosure. It does, however still impact someone’s credit report negatively. I can only imagine it must also be as stressful and emotional, as a foreclosure or similar situation is.

Basically when the sale of a piece of real estate falls short of debts secured by liens against the property, it is referred to as a “short sale.” It is an agreement whereas the lien holders agree to remove any liens to allow the sale to happen. When they release the liens, they agree to accept a smaller payoff than has actually accrued. This does not necessarily mean the borrower does not have to repay the unpaid balance, known as a “deficiency.” This may be the case, but only if it is mutually agreed upon between both parties.

I love the video at the link below! It is a simple and easy to understand explanation of a short sale and the associated process.

Just as more people than ever are being forced to go through the foreclosure process, the short sale option is being chosen by more people also. Regardless of whether you have experienced one of these situations, bankruptcy or some other issue, resulting in poor credit, don’t give up your dream of becoming a property owner again.
