Alameda County, CA Homeowners Facing Foreclosure must know about Short Sale ! What is a Short Sale?

27-May-2012 | News-Press Release

A foreclosure can devastate your credit. Your credit score can be lowered by as much as 300-400 points (or more) and you’ll be hounded day and night by your lender. Even worse, you’ll have difficulty getting credit cards, auto loans or even renting a home or an apartment for the next 7 years. Your home will be repossessed by the bank and the bank will sell your home, either at auction, or more likely through a real estate agent, with a large sign out front that says "Bank Foreclosure".

Property owners in Alameda, Contra Costa, Sonoma, Solano and Napa Counties facing foreclosure have options. One of them is a short sale. A short sale is the sale of a home in which the amount owed to the lender(s) is more than the amount that the home can be sold for. Instead of the home owner having to bring in money to complete the sale, the sale is completed through negotiations with the existing lender(s) and the lender(s) agree to accept less than the full amount owed to satisfy the debt and allow it to be paid off “short.”

This transaction is carried out by a REAL ESTATE AGENT. Your mortgage lender agrees to discount a loan balance because of economic or financial difficulties on the part of the homeowner. The homeowner sells the mortgage property for less than the outstanding balance of the loan, and turns over the proceeds of the sale to the lender. Doing a SHORT SALE is simply the most economical solution for a homeowner who cannot afford the mortgage payment anymore. It is much more beneficial to do a SHORT SALE versus just letting a property go into FORECLOSURE (which is likely to have very serious and negative consequences). This is a good option if:

  • You are not eligible to refinance
  • You are at risk of foreclosure
  • You have tried to work a modification with your mortgage lender and failed
  • You have fallen behind on your mortgage payments and cannot afford it anymore
  • You are facing financial hardship and are struggling
