Question Mark as to Short Selling

You want to short sell your Overland Park Home & you have an FHA loan.

Did you know that if you want to short sell your Overland Park Home & you have an FHA loan with the "Federal Housing Authority (FHA)" that the requirements for you to short sell your home are different than a traditional conventional style short sell.  Yep...Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has specific requirements and guidelines for determining if your FHA insured home qualifies to for short sale approval.

And guess what?  Did you know that the first requirement before you get your heart set on submitting an offer for the short sale of your home is that you are approved to participate in the FHA short sale program to begin with!!  Folks, don't "put the horse before the cart".  Make sure you know what the requirements are for short selling your Overland Park if you have an FHA loan.

Just curious to know what the differences are.. I did not know this.  If you have a few moments, it would be great to find out what those difference are.

Thanks Joan for reading our post.  For more information about FHA short sales, Bank of America has a great resource section which you may be aware of at  They sponsored a very informative webinar yesterday on FHA Preforeclosure Short Sales and provided a great deal of insight as to the unique requirements for an FHA short sale.  Hope you find it helpful.
