What is a Short Sale?
A short sale is a process of where a home is sold for less than the amount owed to the Lender(s). The Lender (Bank), will need to approve the short sale before the Seller will be allowed to convey ownership to the Buyer.
Benefits of a Short Sale
- A short sale has less impact to the Seller's credit than a foreclosure
- A short sale satisfies the debt the Seller owes the Lender(s)
- A short sale typically gives the Seller more time in the home to execute a sale
- A short sale allows the home to be sold, avoiding the stress that goes along with the Foreclosure process.
