Frequently Asked Questions about Short Sales:

Below is a list of the most common question about Short Sales. Please read below, and feel free to contact us with any questions.

Home Inspection:
Does the home inspection have to be done prior to bank approval of Short Sale?

A: Yes it does and it is in the best interest of the buyer as well as the seller. It needs to be done before the package is even submitted to the bank. If the buyer finds something wrong with the house and requests money off it is easier to consider a reduction of purchase price before I submit to the bank. This way once I submit, the price is set. In addition, it is also in the buyers’ and sellers’ best interest to do the home inspection first in case the buyer decides to back out due to a situation revealed at inspection. It is better to find out before submitting, instead of later after everyone has waited for many weeks.

Q: When will the buyers’ offer be accepted?

A: Just like in any sale it is up to the seller to accept, deny or counter the offer. The only difference here is IF the offer is accepted by the seller, the sale will still be “Subject to Seller’s lien holder(s) approval of Short Sale”. It is a seller’s mortgage contingency.  Just like you (the buyer) have to wait to see if your lender will agree to lend “x” number of dollars for a home, the seller’s lender has to agree to release the lien for “x” number of dollars.

Offer/Deposit Check:
Does the buyer need to have a bank certified check along with their offer?

A: No; a copy of a personal check is sufficient for submission of offer. However if/when the offer is accepted, all checks need to bank certified.

Submitting to the Bank(s):
Q: Is only on offer submitted and when do you submit to the bank(s)?

A: Yes; I only accept and submit one offer to the bank(s). I submit once the purchase and sales agreement is signed and the home inspection (if applicable) is complete.

Q: Can you really get a Short Sale approved in 4-8 weeks?

A: Yes!! My average time to obtain an approval is 6 weeks. I will update you along the way.

Q: Does it matter what bank it is?

A: No. I have done many Short Sales, and have dealt with every major bank in the country. I have direct contact with VP’s, Directors and Managers at many banks.

Loan Balance(s):
What does the seller owe on their loan(s)?

A: That does not matter at all. I have had Short Sales where banks have forgiven over $300,000 on a mortgage. All the bank(s) care about is obtaining today’s market value for the property. What someone owes has no relevance.
