Are you facing foreclosure?
You may have options you have not considered.
Atlanta, Decatur and Tucker Families are facing unprecedented hardships in today’s economy. Breadwinners have lost jobs, healthcare bills have emptied family bank accounts and unexpected mortgage payment increases have made it impossible for some families to make their monthly mortgage payment. At the same time the value of many homes has dropped to a price below what is owed on their mortgage loan.
If your family is facing any of these situations, you do have options. There are steps you can take to avoid foreclosure. But you have to take action. Foreclosure has long term effects on your credit rating and on your emotions. Others may have told you there are no alternatives. It is important to know you may have a way out of foreclosure.
Lenders are now considering "Short Sales" for sellers who can demonstrate hardship. This term, "Short Sale" may be new to you even of you heard it mentioned on the news on read about it in a newspaper.
Cutting right to the point, a short sale means your lender may agree to allow you to market your home at a value that is less than what you owe on the mortgage. At closing the lender agrees to accept a payoff on your mortgage loan that is less than the loan balance you presently owe. The payoff is "short" of a full payment. Your lender has to agree to accept the "short" amount as full payment of your home loan for this to work. This "Short Sale" mechanism gives many homeowners an opportunity to sell their home BEFORE a foreclosure occurs.
A short sale is a complex and time consuming real estate transaction. Many real estate agents and attorneys will not be familiar with the mechanics of a short sale transaction. Fortunately, there is an educational and training organization that provides the knowledge and experience necessary to negotiate the approval of these transactions with a lender.
