Folsom-El Dorado Hills CA – Have you heard the following myths about short sales?

Myth #1: You can buy short sales for dirt cheap and then turn around and resell them for a profit.

Myth #2: Foreclosures, Short Sales, and Bank Owned Homes can be bought for 30 to 50 cents on the dollar with no money down.

Myth #3: Lenders will accept any short sale offer even if it is for only 50% of what the home is worth. After all, they don’t want a foreclosure on their books.

These myths are just not true. Lenders are willing to foreclosure on properties. They have entire departments handle the sale of properties that they have foreclosed on.

Another foreclosure is nothing to fear. At the same time, they do prefer short sales. Short Sales are known to reduce a lender’s loss compared to a short sale.

They have high paid actuaries who have run the numbers and proved that to be the case. That means they take a pragmatic approach on short sales.

They want to make sure that he short sale offer isn’t lower than what the home would sell if they foreclosed on it. That is why they order an appraisal before accepting the offer.

They won’t agree to a sale if the offer is for substantially less than the appraised value. If the offer is 5% lower than the appraisal, then they might accept it.

If it is substantially less, then they will ask the buyer to raise their offer to the appraised value.

Another thing lenders check before approving a short sale is that they aren’t approving a short sale for someone that is able to afford their home.

They don’t want to lose money on a short sale when they can make money when the person repays the loan. Thinking about a short sale?

Important Notice

John J Hayes, RE/MAX Gold, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
