Is a Short Sale right for you?
A viable option instead of foreclosure is a short sale. The term short sale simply means the homeowner gets their lender to take a lesser payment from the sale of the house than what is actually owed on the mortgage. Since one in four homeowners in America are currently upside down on their mortgage, short sales have become more popular. This can be a win win for all parties involved. The seller walks away with a much lesser impact on their credit, the buyer gets a deal, and the lender minimizes their financial loss of not taking back the house after foreclosure.
The time to act if you’re facing foreclosure is now; not tomorrow, the next day or the day after that. To see if you qualify for a shortsale, you must first give me a call to set up a FREE private consultation. If you qualify, I will list your house for sale and submit offers to the bank for approval. My office will handle all negotiations with the bank including closing.
There is no cost to the homeowner for my service because the lender will pay my fees. The process currently takes about 3-6 months and we will do everything to accomplish a successful short sale. I believe that we have a short sale process that is unmatched in the industry. From our initial consultation with you through and after the closing, we have a process that delivers results and aims to eliminate potential problems. Just give me a call and let us help reduce the stress of loosing your home.

Whether you’re a buyer or seller, the knowledge you gain will help put you in control of your real estate transaction Sale or Foreclosure? What to Consider Before Making the Decision
With distressed properties, including foreclosures (or REOs) and short sales, making up about half of all single-family home sales in California in January, according to the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, many underwater sellers will face the tough decision between a foreclosure or a short sale.
Some of the most important factors to consider before making the decision include deficiency judgments, tax implications, credit consequences and timing.
Deficiency Judgements and Tax Implications
The good news is that California offers some protections for consumers against deficiency judgments after short sales and foreclosures. A homeowner is generally protected against a deficiency judgment after short sale for a one-to-four residential unit property. The instances in which a homeowner is generally protected against a deficiency judgment following foreclosure include, among other things, a non-judicial foreclosure or a loan that is all of the following: 1) owner-occupied, 2) secured by a one-to-four unit dwelling and 3) purchase money. Homeowners are also protected against deficiency judgments after foreclosure of seller financing.
