Short Sale and Foreclosure Options

Mortgage Debt Relief at SunCoast Law – We Know Debt Relief

In recent years many real estate agents and mortgage companies have encouraged distressed homeowners, to opt for a short sale rather than allow the bank to foreclose on the property. In the case of a short sale, the homeowner sells their home to a buyer for less than the balance of the existing mortgage. The mortgage lender must first agree to take less for the house rather than foreclose, however. If this is the case, the real estate agent and the bank each benefit from the short sale since the home could’ve taken years to sell in the current real estate market. The seller however, loses the home and any possible future equity.

The Best Option for Homeowners in Financial Distress

It is important to carefully weigh your decision about agreeing to a short sale. Sometimes, as a condition of the sale you are required to agree to pay the mortgage holder the difference between the actual sale price of the property and the remaining balance on the mortgage. Unless the deficiency amount is specifically waived you will legally owe it. These deficiency debts often wind up in the hands of ruthless debt collectors that purchase them from lenders. There may also be tax consequences at the end of the year on any monies the bank vows to forgive.
