Short Sale Information

Short Sales unfortunately is part of the Real Estate Language today and for the next few years. For a homeowner in this situation it can be overwhelming and a bit confusing especially for those homeowners who would like to stay in their home. I hope this information is helpful to Roseville Ca Homeowners as well as homeowners in out region.

Short Sale InformationShort Sales Explained

A short sale can be an excellent solution for homeowners who need to sell, and who owe more on their homes than they are worth. In the past, it was rare for a bank or lender to accept a short sale. Today, however, due to overwhelming market changes, banks and lenders have become much more negotiable when it comes to these transactions.

But to be technical, here's a more official definition:

  • A homeowner is 'short' when the amount owed on his/her property is higher than current market value.
  • A short sale occurs when a negotiation is entered into with the homeowner's mortgage company (or companies) to accept less than the full balance of the loan at closing. A buyer closes on the property, and the property is then 'sold short' of the total value of the mortgage.  If you would like to know what the value of your home is to determine if you are short, feel free to use this free service.

For homeowners to qualify for a short sale, they must fall into any or all of the following circumstances:

  • Financial Hardship – There is a situation causing you to have trouble affording your mortgage.
  • Monthly Income Shortfall – In other words: "You have more month than money." A lender will want to see that you cannot afford, or soon will not be able to afford your mortgage.
  • Insolvency – The lender will want to see that you do not have significant liquid assets that would allow you to pay down your mortgage.

This seems simple enough, but it is a complicated process that takes the expertise of experienced professionals. I hold the CDPE® Designation and I am ready to identify all possible options and, when possible, assist in the quick execution of a short sale transaction.

There is some good news for homeowners who find themselves needing to short sale their home. Most banks today understand that doing the short sale is not only benefit for you but also them. Some of the major banks like Chase and B of A are offering seller relocation incentives. This incentive is meant to assist the homeowner move forward. See below Bank of America's recent email that was sent out this month.

 

Bank of America Increases Relocation Assistance Payments to Customers Completing Preapproved Price Short Sales

Short Sales Provide Alternative to Foreclosure for Delinquent Borrowers Who Have Exhausted or Declined Home Retention Solutions

 

 

CALABASAS, Calif. – Adding to its foreclosure prevention initiatives, Bank of America has launched a nationwide program that offers delinquent mortgage customers increased assistance with relocation expenses – between $2,500 and $30,000 - at the completion of a qualifying short sale.

 

“Bank of America is committed to providing alternatives to foreclosure whenever possible,” said Bob Hora, home transition services executive for Bank of America. “This program can help customers make a planned transition from ownership when home retention options have been exhausted or they have made a decision not to keep the home.”

 

The short sale relocation assistance program builds on the bank’s already robust short sale initiatives, which led to 200,000 completed short sales in the last two years and another 30,000 in the first quarter of 2012. This program is based on a similar incentive offer that Bank of America tested in Florida last year.

 

To qualify for the enhanced relocation assistance payments under the new program, the seller must work proactively with the bank to obtain a preapproved sales price prior to submitting a purchase offer to the bank. A short sale must be initiated by the end of this year and close by September 26, 2013, to be eligible for the payment. Qualifying short sales that have already been started but have not closed may be eligible for the relocation assistance.

 

The amount of assistance provided under the new program will be determined on a case-by-case basis using a calculation that includes the value of the home, amount owed and other considerations.

 

Initially, the program will be offered on mortgages that are owned and serviced by Bank of America.

 

While available nationally, Bank of America anticipates greatest response to the program will come from borrowers in California, Nevada, Arizona, Florida and other states hardest hit by the economic downturn and falling property values.
