When it comes to short sale help, it's crucial you know about the short sale red flags in selling your home today! Whether you're a home seller in California or anywhere for that matter it's important you to know some of the short sale risks, pitfalls and scams in the marketplace when it comes to selling your home.
In CA we have a statewide (if you're using a CA REALTOR) "SHORT SALE INFORMATION ADVISORY" that helps you understand several things, including some of your SHORT SALE OPTIONS on page one. Followed by some of the "POTENTIAL IMPROPRIETIES" that are identified on pages 2 and 3 of the advisory.
Typically the improprieties may include promises by some who identify themselves posing as "rescuers" making promises that may include:
- Promising to let you remain in your home after close of escrow.
- Promising to protect your credit.
- Promise to provide you money (cash for keys) at closing
- Guarantee to stop your foreclosure.
- Suggest you NOT talk with your lender.
- Suggest if you sign over your deed to them (maybe an LLC or a Trust) they will negotiate with your lender for you.
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE ARE RED FLAGS!
