Could you buy again in 6 short months from completing a Cape Coral short sale? Maybe. Read below how one family did just that. The guidelines are fairly strict but if you make the decision to do a short sale before you go into default and if you maintain your other good credit this could be possible. We specialize in short sales and can help you out of your situation fast. Learn more about us and Cape Coral short sales. The moral of the story is to NOT WAIT. You need to make the decision before you get too far behind.
So many people are under the impression that a homeowner who sells their home by short sale must wait years to purchase again. That statement is not always true. In fact on Friday, I assisted a purchaser settle on a gorgeous five year old townhouse with a two car garage, granite counters in the Belmont Bay Community in Woodbridge Virginia. The townhouse was totally remodeled and in perfect move-in condition.
Why is that unique?
Those purchasers had sold their single family home by short sale in Dumfries, Virginia less than six months ago!
Yes, you read that correctly!
So now you are asking "How?"
Simple...compromise According to the Lender, there are guidelines set up to help homeowners purchase again when using FHA Financing.
This purchaser fit those guidelines.
- Maintained good credit throughout the short sale process
- The purchase must be inferior in size ( you cannot go buy same size house at lower price)
- The purchaser needed to relocate to a different area ( different zip code is fine)
- The purchaser must qualify for a loan
- The purchaser must be able to come up with FHA Down payment requirements to purchase.
- Talk with a lender to see what your options are. Then call a local Realtor you trust to help you find another place to call home.
The seller went from this home to the townhouse photographed below.
The moral of the story. If you can see that you are not going to be able to make ends meet, act quickly. Call a local Realtor®, to assist you. Learn your options before it is too late. This example shows you that if you can maintain your credit, and act quickly your credit does not have to suffer. This customer had excellent credit to begin with. Their credit did take a hit after short sale, however the good news is, they still fit within the FHA Guidelines to buy another home! I love happy endings.
