Do You Need a Short Sale for Your Orange County House? Do You Owe More than Your Home is Worth?

By
Real Estate Agent with Donovan Blatt Realty 01267479

Today, many people are having financial troubles and would like to sell their home, but they owe more than it's worth.

If you are facing this situation, you probably want to know what your options are.

Can you get a loan modification?  A loan modification means that the bank modifies the terms of your loan such as interest rate, the length of the loan or the amount you owe.

Should you consider a short sale?  A short sale occurs when the bank agrees to accept less than the full amount of the loan when the house is sold.  The bank may choose to agree to a short sale if your financial situation has changed and you can no longer afford your payments and the market value of the house has dropped below the amount of the loan or the amount of the loan plus the costs to sell the house.

Why would the bank consider a short sale?  If you have a hardship, your house is worth less than you owe, and/or you are behind on your mortgage payment, the bank might prefer a short sale to a foreclosure.

If you are unable to make your mortgage payment, you don't want to lose your home or you don't want to go through a foreclosure, please call me for a free consultation to discuss your options.

Remember, the sooner you call, the more likely there will be time to reach a resolution. 

Please see the video below from a client I helped save from foreclosure by doing a short sale on her Orange County home.

The experts -- and I'm not sure we should trust the experts anymore -- are predicting another wave of foreclosures here for April and May of this year. Some are saying that if the home values reach the magical 50% of amount owed level, many people will simply choose to walk away from their homes. I'm not sure why, because a short sale would still be better.

Jim - I don't know how we're going to avoid more foreclosures.  Prices are down so much, people are hurting, and they're aware the values aren't there.  I think if people are in a bad situation, a short sale makes so much more sense than just walking away and having a foreclosure.  It just gives them more options and more control.
