Daytona Beach Florida Short Sales


A short sale is sometimes considered a pre-foreclosure property.  A short sale happens when a homeowner owes the bank or lending instution money for a loan and either they are behind on their monthly mortgage payments or are going to be.  A short sale sells for less than what the mortgage amount is and the bank accepts it.  Generally there is a balance that is either written off by the bank as a loss or the home owner may have to repay either by being issued a 1099 on the difference or be given a small loan in order to repay the difference between the mortgage amount and selling amount.   Its best to consult with an accountant and an attorney.    

Short Sale VS. Foreclosure

Foreclosures can be an eye sore and affect the value of the neighborhood.  Many times foreclosures are abandon homes.  With vacant homes there is no one there to maintain the property or make sure the home is secure.  This could prove to be a problem for the entire neighborhood with over grown lawns, pools not properly maintained and often times these vacant homes either appear weather worn and in some cases delapitated. 

Short Sale Is Not Your Only Choice - Request a Loan Modification

If you want to stay in your home that could be a short sale but the reality is you do not want to lose your home to foreclosure.  Contact the bank or lender to see if you qualify for a loan modification.  A loan modification can be difficult to obtain.  While the price and terms will change with a loan modification you can be sure that it is very important that you do not break your agreement with the bank or lender.  Breaking a loan modification by not paying the agreed amount on time will start the foreclosure process once again. 

Make sure and fill out the paper work required by the bank and follow the instructions to a tee.  When obtaining a loan modification make sure and understand what has changed and read the fine print.  A loan modification may help to Save Your Home!
