Short Sales

When the fair market price for a home is less than the outstanding mortgages attached to the home, someone is going to get "shorted." That would be the lenders involved on the home loans. If you are planning to take advantage of the opportunities involved with "Short Sales," you have to understand the nature of the sale.

Most loans are either sold or backed by another entity. This might be a government entity like Fanny Mae or Freddie Mack, or it could be an investor. This complication is important because a home's lien cannot be released and the sale cannot be closed because the actual lender would be "shorted" of the amount they are still owed on the loan. Keep in mind that there may even be more than one loan and ALL of the entities holding notes on the property must agree to terms or the sale cannot go through. What that means to the buyer is that the negotiation process is much more complicated than simply negotiating with the homeowner. Once the buyer and the home owner agree to a price, presumably lower than the amount necessary to satisfy all lenders, negotiations must begin with the various lenders.

Home Owners:

If you are a seller and need help due to circumstances that cause you to not be able to make your house payments, call us. We can help.

(PS: Until the end of 2012 the federal government is allowing short sales without tax consequences to seller's. Normally you would have a tax issue for the amount forgiven. It is treated as income to you. I'm not an attorney or tax professional, so make sure to discuss this with your attorney or tax professional.)
