When homeowners are struggling and know that they'll soon face foreclosure, they may try what's known as a short sale. A short sale occurs when a home is sold for less than the amount still owed on the mortgage.

Foreclosures  Investing Short Sale Homes for Sale - 3Short sales can be quite beneficial to all parties because banks don't want foreclosed properties on their books, homeowners don't want the black mark of foreclosure on their credit score, and buyers are always looking for a deal. If a bank approves the short sale, the owners may be able to have all their real estate debt wiped out, giving them a fresh start. Lenders are able to offload property without the hassle and expense of going through the foreclosure process, and because the homeowners are actively trying to sell the house, they're far more likely to take care of the home properly, which is great news for the buyers.

Foreclosures  Investing Short Sale Homes for Sale - 4The problem with short sales is that they are time consuming and require cooperation from the banks. The process can take months, and in the end, the lender may reject the offer completely. Banks want to recoup as much of their money as possible, so if they believe they can get more for the house through foreclosure, they will reject the short sale proposal. For buyers, this means that there's a lengthy waiting period and no guarantee that the deal will be approved. If the buyer is able to wait however, a short sale could be their best option for getting an excellent deal on a house.

For sellers considering a short sale, it's imperative that you contact a REALTOR® who is well-versed in Northern Virginia short sales. She can guide you through the maze of steps and paperwork, and get you one step closer to a successful sale.

Short Sale Information for Sellers: Documents Required

Foreclosures  Investing Short Sale Homes for Sale - 5There are several components needed for your short sale application. As soon as you have an experienced agent on your team, compose a Letter of Authorization to give to the bank. This document will give your lender and agent permission to discuss details of your financial situation. You will also need to complete a Comparative Market Analysis early on. This will help you correctly price your house, in addition to showing the bank how much your property can reasonably fetch on the open market.

You will need to provide your lender with tax returns for the last two years, your last two bank statements and pay stubs, as well as a detailed financial statement. Also needed in your application is the purchase agreement you have with the buyer.

Foreclosures  Investing Short Sale Homes for Sale - 1Aside from the hard numbers, you will also need to give your bank what's known as a hardship letter. This is where you detail your financial situation, and explain why you're no longer able to make your mortgage payments. This letter is your opportunity to explain your situation and convey the seriousness of it. Be forthcoming, and don't worry about modesty—if a short sale is your only hope, get that message across in your letter.

Customer Reviews

"I was very satisfied with Team Capalbo's services. They sold our rental property in VA while I'm in Europe, without having to fly back. Carolyn's knowldge of the area helped price the house well (more than I expected) and was sold in less than a week. She provided very useful advises from start to finish. Her team had contractors ready to bid for some repairs and I was provided with a couple of bids for my approval. The electronic signing of the documents was easy and efficient. Her team was very responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. I highly recommend this team to anyone"
