Short Sales: Why Should I Short Sale? It Costs You Nothing

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Tacoma

Seattle and Tacoma,WA –Hi! This is Nathan Olotoa with 59days2sold.com and www.seattleshortsalesagent.com and I specialize in short sales in the Tacoma and Seattle areas.

– This is a continuation of a former article about short sales. We often get asked if a short sale is even worth the effort.

“Why don’t I just let the bank have the property”, sellers tell us. “I don’t ever think I’ll be able to fix my credit to be able to buy another house.”

Short sales are worth the extra effort. They enable you to buy another home much faster than you would have to wait if you experience a foreclosure.

And they cost you nothing. All the costs are covered by your lender. Now, I’m sure you’re thinking, “I might have to pay my agent to sell the house. that sounds risky.”

that is a legitimate concern. Here is why the lenders are willing to pay your agent. If they foreclose on the home, they will have to hire an agent to sell it.

So why not just pay the short sale agent. Extensive studies have been done on the advantages of a short sale versus a foreclosure.

The study results showed that a lender will make more on a short sale than a foreclosure. Oftentimes the difference is huge.

I have seen some lenders lose hundreds of thousands of dollars. They turned down a short sale thinking the home would sell for more as a foreclosure.

The home ended up selling for much less. That is why lenders like short sales and are willing to pay all of the costs. Thinking about a short sale?
