The recent financial and housing crisis has left many homeowners "underwater" on their mortgage, meaning that the amount they owe is greater than the home's actual value. Obviously, this presents problems when trying to sell.
When an owner sells a home for less than a mortgage, he or she still owes the bank the remaining debt (the "deficiency"). In a short sale process, one negotiates with the bank and comes to a compromise that allows for the sale of the home. Short sales can be extremely difficult as your mortgage holder will obtain its own appraisal and often reject and offer as too low. We do not normally recommend short sales as they are usually financially undesirable when compared with other options.
Reaching an ideal outcome in short sales almost always requires the skill and expertise of an experienced attorney. Our team is here for you.
