How Do I Short Sale My Home


Have you been having a hard time paying your mortgage? Short sale is considered to be the best solution to this problem. A short sale is a process wherein the proceeds are less than the actual balance owed on the mortgage that covers the property. This may be the right option for some people. However, is this really the right option for you?


Before putting your home on a short sale, remember that this takes a lot of work and time. There may be no guarantee that this closes in the end. Before you engage in this transaction, you need to first consult a lender regarding the foreclosure alternatives. Discuss with him the process of modifying the loan, refinancing the mortgage, negotiating the deed of foreclosure. Just like other short sales, this may present its benefits and drawbacks. Choose The Giff Group to be your local real estate agent in Orlando.


Will it be The Right Time to Put Your Home on a Short Sale?

Having enough time in selling your home is needed. Short sale may take a few months or so. Will there be enough time in marketing the property and finding a buyer? The negotiations with the lender automatically stop the foreclosure process of the lender.

Call the lender. The trustee must also be contacted in managing and postponing the process of foreclosure. This way, the short sale is given enough time.


The moment that the short sale closes, this is the only time that you can move. If your goal is to still stay at home for months, then putting your home on a short sale is a better decision.


Approval from All Parties

In putting the home on a short sale, getting an approval from all parties that are interested in closing it is a must. It may take an effort and time in closing a short sale because it requires another interested party. There is only a need to identify the parties interested in the property and call them earlier before the short sale process.


Putting your home on a short sale may not be an easy process. Here is an overview on how to short sale your home.

  1. Discuss The Property to People

After going through the financial hardships and finding out that the home is underwater, the first step to consider is on talking to three important parties such as a real estate agent, real estate lawyer and CPA.

Every state has its specific laws pertaining on the ability of the lender in coming after the borrower. Thus, it is strongly recommended that those who are interested in selling their homes on a short sale should discuss the situation with these people.

In fact, it is even better going with a bankruptcy or foreclosure filing. These three parties have their essential role to play in moving the short sale forward. Learning about this step at the earliest time possible is necessary. This way, there is no need to spend more time in going to another route.

  1. Look for the Best Agent

If the short sale is the best solution for your home, then it matters choosing the best agent. While others consider themselves as short-sale experts, there is still a need to evaluate them properly. Search for their titles that are granted after they completed their courses.

Beyond organizations names and titles, it is vital to ask a few important questions such as the number of short sale listings that they had. It is also good to ask about their phone numbers and the names of their last 5 short-sale listing customers.


  1. Learn About the Real Value of the Home

Before engaging in the long process of putting your home on a short sale, there is a need for you to evaluate its value. This is often done in many ways. There may be a home value generator to use that lets you compare it with other similar values of neighboring houses. Better yet, find the real estate broker that gives you further estimate.


  1. List the Property at the Valuable Price

The key step in the process of putting your home on a short sale is the price. The price must be above the market value. However, it must be lowered at the pre-determined intervals until then that the offer is received. This gives an impression to the bank that you’re up to selling the home at an attractive price. The appetite of the bank is satisfied for the possible profits.


  1. Get the Package Together

After an offer is already received, it is now the time to getting the package together. The lender often requires a lot of documents such as tax returns from the previous years, hardship letter two pay stubs and the like.

When all things are followed and done, the package could be around sixty or eighty pages long. It is a must to prepare all of the required documents in the package. The banks are interested in looking for the reason of putting off the short sale.

  1. Wait

In putting your home on a short sale, it matters being patience. The process requires more of your patience. This is the most important element in the short-sale process. It takes about thirty to forty-five days in order that the lender gets the short-sale package.

The information should also be placed on the system. Apart from it, the sale should be assigned to the negotiator. There are times that the process takes up to three succeeding months.

  1. Negotiate

The negotiator may offer the so-called “broker-price opinion”. Apart from this price, he or she may offer an appraisal of the home. This is when the necessary information is already presented to the lender. This is the time that the short sale is approved.

For a low offer, the lender may present a high sale price that could lead to back and forth negotiation. Even if the buyers come and go, do not get disappointed or discouraged. Instead, keep the agent close. This is just a part of the short sale process that takes six weeks. Others also put their home on a short sale for years.

Short sales are helpful in avoiding eviction and foreclosure. Losing the home at a public auction is also avoided. Before putting your home for a short sale, it is important to pay attention on all of the steps above!
