Short Sales

Facing Foreclosure?

Are you facing foreclosure because of financial hardship, loss of income, loss of a loved one, loss of property value, or any other reason and need to sell your home quickly to avoid foreclosure? We can help with something called a short sale.

What is a Short Sale?

A short sale is selling your home with the approval of your lender to accept an offer less than what you owe at today's fair market value to avoid foreclosure.  The benefit of a short sale vs. a foreclosure if you are in a distressed situation is typically a much shorter turnaround time in rebuilding your credit and possibly avoiding any deficiency balance owed or financial judgment.

How long does the short sale process take?

Typically a short sale processes averages about three months from submission to closing, but not all lenders are alike and the process length can vary depending on your lender requirements and personal financial situation.
