Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A SHORT SALE? A short sale occurs when the property is sold for less than the loan amount with the cooperation of the lender. It permits more owner control over the process and according to Fannie Mae, less credit consequences than a foreclosure. Not all lenders will approve a short sale and not all owners or all properties qualify for short sales.
WHAT ARE THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR A SHORT SALE? Both your property and you have to qualify for short sale consideration.
HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR A SHORT SALE? You must meet certain investor requirements. This varies from investor to investor. Generally a borrower needs to show some sort of financial hardship at a minimum. There are many other criteria that make a borrower eligible for review. One must be reviewed for an accurate response.
HOW WILL A SHORT SALE IMPACT MY CREDIT? A short sale coupled with more than a few delinquent mortgage payments will damage a borrowers credit almost as much as a foreclosure. However, one will have a chance at obtaining more favorable financing in a quicker time frame than if a foreclosure takes place. A foreclosure may prevent traditional lending for more than a few years.
WILL I HAVE LIABILITY FOR THE DIFFERENCE BALANCE? California is a one action state and per California short sale letters the deficiency is generally always waived.
IF MY CALIFORNIA LOAN IS NON-RECOURSE, WILL I RECEIVE A 1099-C FOLLOWING SHORT SALE? Yes, we recommend you speak to your CPA about your situation. Ask if you qualify as insolvent.
HOW LONG DOES A SHORT SALE GENERALLY TAKE? Mortgage servicers generally quote 45-90 days for a decision but at times it may take longer. The time frames will vary on multiple factors.
