What Is A Short Sale? Can It Help Me?

When a homeowner is behind on their mortgage payments, there are several steps the bank can take. The biggest of these is foreclosure. However, there are several ways that homeowners can prevent foreclosure proceedings. One of them is by selling their home through a short sale. During a short sale, the home is sold for less than the balance of the outstanding loan.

Short sales can be beneficial to both the homeowners and the lender. Foreclosure proceedings often lead to bankruptcy and a huge hit to your credit score, but a short sale does not. Homeowners who avoid foreclosure are also more attractive to lenders in the future if they decide to buy another home.

Banks often approve short sales because even though they will lose money, it is often cheaper and less time-consuming than the foreclosure process. While short sales are a great way to prevent foreclosure, the window for homeowners to take advantage of this process is a short one.  This is why it is important to speak with an attorney at The Law Offices of Dennis J. Szafran as soon as possible.
