What Is A Short Sale Anyway?
Simply put, a short sale is when a homeowner owes more to their lien holder(s) (lenders) than what the home can currently be sold for. The sellers lien holder(s) have to agree to sell the home for less or “short” of what is owed on the balance of the homeowners mortgage(s). Short sales are a way for homeowners to avoid foreclosure and still be able to pay off their loans by settling with their lenders.
Short Sale Benefits
These are a few of the traditional benefits of short selling your home as opposed to letting the lender foreclose on your property.
- less damage to your credit
- lower tax liability (if any)
- ability to apply for a mortgage in 2 years as opposed to 7 years for a foreclosure
- clearing employment background checks
- quicker recovery of your credit
