Short Sale / Foreclosure Properties

The basic answer to what is a short sale is a short sale is a property that sells for less than the balance owing on its mortgage. A short sale can be anything from a residental home, an apartment building or even vacant land. If there is a mortgage balance that is greater than the market value of the home, that property is a short sale. If your mortgage company agrees to a short sale, you can sell your home and pay off all (or a portion of) your mortgage balance with the proceeds. You may also be eligible for the government's Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program (HAFA) which offers short sale and DIL options.

A Short Sale is a Privilege, Not a Right

Not every property qualifies as a potential short sale in a bank's eyes. A bank must agree to grant a short sale. Banks are under no obligation to approve a short sale. Banks will grant a short sale if the bank feels it is in the bank's best interest to approve the short sale.

It is in the bank's best interest to approve the short sale if the bank will make more money through the short sale than to foreclose. It is estimated that banks might save 25% to 30% on foreclosure costs to grant a short sale over a foreclosure, but some investor guidelines make it more profitable for the bank to foreclose.
