Short sale my El Cajon home near San Diego, CA

Short sale my El Cajon home near San Diego, CA – Here’s a
bit of good news if you’re reading this blog and haven’t had any in a
while. The San Diego housing market has a shortage of listings. That’s
right, there aren’t enough homes on the market for sale right now to
meet the demands of buyers looking in El Cajon.

So,
if you’re like many El Cajon home owners struggling to hold on to
your home either because of job loss, job relocation, divorce, interest
rate adjustment or death of a family member, doing a short sale might be
a good option.
 
A short sale is a negotiated settlement whereby the lien holder accepts less than what is owed on the outstanding mortgage loan.

How a short sale works?
– A real estate agent would list the home and submit an accepted offer
to the lender for approval. The real estate agent works on behalf of the
seller to reach a negotiated settlement.  Once the terms of the
settlement have been agreed upon with an approval both buyer and seller
would resolve to complete the esrow process and close the transaction.

How long does it take to complete a short sale?
Due to the complexities of doing a short sale the process can typically
take anywhere from 3-6 months. It’s not uncommon for some short sales
to take less or more time to close.

Can I stay in my home while I”m doing a short sale?  Yes you can.

Will I receive money from doing a short sale?  A
seller is not allowed to financially benefit from completing a short
sale. However, the lender can offer what’s know as “cash for keys” which
is a small compensation to the homeowner for moving costs.
