What is a Short Sale?

Short Sale and Short Sale Negotiation

At first, the short sale process can seem complex and intimidating for home buyers and sellers alike. Not only is it a transaction utilized as a solution to help homeowners with economic hardship, it involves negotiating with numerous parties to find common ground. While a short sale does require several steps and can take some time to complete, we can clear up some of the confusion. With iShortSale, any short sale or short sale negotiation becomes straightforward, resulting in the best possible outcome for all parties involved.

What Is a Short Sale?

A short sale occurs only with the approval of lenders when they agree to sell the property for a lower amount than its outstanding mortgage balance. At first glance, this might seem an unusual option. However, it can benefit all parties involved if done properly.

Facing foreclosure can be a challenging time. Selling your home for the entire value of the mortgage might simply not be possible. In these cases, a short sale can prove to be the most beneficial path of action. iShortSale works with you to deliver the best possible outcome so you can avoid foreclosure.

  • Owe an amount on your mortgage greater than the value of your home.
  • Are currently facing hardship that may be long term.
  • Cannot obtain eligibility to modify or refinance your mortgage.
  • Have fallen behind on mortgage payments.
  • Have not had success in selling your home at a price that covers your remaining mortgage.
  • Have found you can no longer afford this home.
