Short Sale Lawyer in Boca Raton
What is a short sale?
When a homeowner is faced with the possibility of foreclosure, it can be a very stressful and confusing time. Knowing what to do next can be confusing. You may have tried to refinance without success, or sought help from government programs. Eventually it may be time to move on and sell the property, but your mortgage is far higher than the current market value. This is when a short sale could be the best solution. A short sale is the process of selling a home for less than what is owed to the bank or other lender. Many banks and lenders can be convinced to accept the proceeds from a short sale, as it is often considerably less time-consuming, and far more cost-effective than having to go through the process of foreclosure.
Once a lender or bank has accepted the funds from a short sale, the individual no longer owns the home, nor is he or she legally responsible for any remaining amount owed on the mortgage – when it is done correctly. This can be very beneficial, as it not only relieves you of your financial obligation, but a short sale will not impact your credit report like a foreclosure or bankruptcy is bound to do.
