Short Sales-Options to Foreclosure

Help for Homeowners in Distress

When Bad Things Happen to Good People, Help is Just a Call Away... 

 For sellers who are struggling to make their payments or are upside down on their mortgage, there are options that can help you to avoid foreclosure.  Some of these programs can help you save your property.  However, if you would like to sell or have exhausted your other options; a Short Sale is the best remedy to a looming foreclosure.

We have a Short Sale program that can help you sell your home and move on to the next chapter in your life.  With your help and our partners we work with the banks or mortgage companies to reduce the mortgage balance allowing you to sell your property for less than the amount owed.  If you are qualified for a HAFA short sale, you may be entitled to receive a cash benefit:



  •  Through HAFA, you can get help with your primary residence or rental property If a HAFA  short sale doesn’t work, you may be able to give the title back to your mortgage company in a HAFA deed-in-lieu of foreclosure (DIL).
  •  Once you complete a HAFA short sale or DIL, there is a waiver of deficiency, meaning you are released from any remaining mortgage debt.
  •  HAFA offers $10,000 in relocation assistance for you or your tenant.
  •  In some cases, HAFA has a less negative effect on your credit score than a foreclosure, which allows for a faster financial recovery.

Even now, in 2015, there are still hundreds and possibly thousands of homeowners across the Washington metro area who need to sell their properties for less than the outstanding mortgage. This may also include other liens such as a home equity line, home equity loans, second mortgages and even HOA fees. The "short sale" is a preferred approach for most banks since it costs them less than a foreclosure. The short sale is also better option for sellers than a foreclosure which could have a greater impact on your credit or security clearance. I am a trained Short Sale Specialist and can help guide you through this process.
