Huntington Beach CA – People often wonder why their lender will release their debt in a short sale. Most lenders don’t like to release the debt. But, they agree to do it because they know that policy nets them more money.
They net more because a home usually sells for more money as a short sale versus after it has been foreclosed upon. Let’s go thru a few examples.
See the home in the top picture? You can see that it is good shape. Most short sales are being sold while the homeowner lives in the home.
The homeowners are able to keep the house up. They keep the inside clean and neat. In addition, they mow the lawn and keep up on the yard.
This makes a big difference in the sales price. Would you rather buy a home that is in great condition or one that needs work?
Now look at the home in the bottom picture. That is an abandoned home in foreclosure. No one is there to keep up on the yard.
The inside of the home is probably dirty. Vagrants can break into the home. The home is also an easy target for vandalism.
The bottom line is that most short sales are in better shape than a foreclosed home. In fact, they are usually in much better shape.
That is why they sell for more money, thereby cutting the lender’s losses. Thinking about a short sale?

Tony Hunthausen, Remax Select One, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
