Understanding Short Sale TONY AZAR (619) 944-6901 DRE# 01308749

Unfortunately, today there are a lot of short

sales. When shopping for a home, it is likely you will see several of them. It is important to keep the following in mind: Short Sale occurs when a lender agrees to

write off the portion of a mortgage that is high- er than the value of a home. Usually, a buyer must be willing to purchase the property first. The difference between a short sale and

regular (equity) sale is that the seller is hav- ing some kind of financial hardship and must work with the lender to get an approval, be- fore selling the property.


The property is listed with a Realtor. When an offer is received and accepted by the seller, the offer is submitted to the lender for an approval.

This could take from three to six months. In last the year, efforts have been made to streamline the short sale process, with some success.

After receiving the approval from the

lender(s) for the short sale, buyer and seller have a valid agreement and can move forward with the transaction.



Sometimes a listing price is below market value to bring in multiple offers from buyers; Lender, most likely, will do a market evaluation on the property to determine its estimated value; If the short sale is a condo, there may be homeowner association fees that have not been paid. Typically, the bank is not willing to pay for these late fees. Make sure you hire a good home inspector to do a thorough home inspection of the prop- erty. Usually, short sale properties are sold “as is”. Seller, or lender, will not give credit or pay for any repairs; When considering purchasing a short sale,

there are many additional things to consider. Make sure you have a seasoned realtor to guide you through the process of purchasing, or selling, a short sale property.
