Sacramento Short Sales: The Wait To Buy Another Home After A Short Sale Was Recently Changed to 3 Years

Sacramento CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Christina. Here is her question.

"I just read your article Frequently Asked Questions about Short Sales. You mention that you can obtain another home loan two years after a short sale.

Who are these lenders and how can I contact them? I have been looking but so far no luck. Everyone is insisting we must wait three years. I'd appreciate any information you can provide. Christina."

We just heard back from our mortgage broker on this issue. Fannie Mae recently changed their guidelines for a loan after a short sale.

(Since most lenders and loan programs follow Fannie Mae's Guidelines, that means that almost every single lender changed their policies as well.)

When we wrote the article their guidelines had said that you had to wait two years after a short sale. Now those guidelines have been changed to 3 years.

The good news is that you can still buy a house after a short sale. Life does go on and will go back to normal. No matter how bad things may seem, they will get better.

Before you know it the 3 years will pass and you can buy another home. The housing market is still flat and will probably be flat over the next 3 years.

So you will be able to buy the next house for substantially less than what you paid for your current home. Thinking about a short sale?

I can help you short sale your property and never pay the bank another penny. Send me an e-mail at I will contact you for a free consultation.

Important Notice

John J Hayes, RE/MAX Gold, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.

The views expressed here are Hayes's personal views and do not reflect the views of RE/MAX Gold.
