Bank Short Sale

The difference between a bank short sale and foreclosure is that mortgage lenders allow borrowers to sale their home for less than they owe on their mortgage note. Certain restrictions apply and borrowers must obtain short sale approval from their lender.

A bank short sale can be hard to obtain. Although lenders prefer this method over foreclosure, short sales require additional paperwork and mountains of documentation. Since the bank will be taking a loss on the property, they want to make certain the borrower is truly incapable of repaying the loan or getting back on track with their mortgage payments.

Short sales are usually handled through the lender's loss mitigation department. When a borrower becomes delinquent on their mortgage, their loan is turned over to a loss mitigator. The primary role of the loss mitigator is to help borrower's devise a repayment plan that is feasible, while allowing the lender to recoup their losses.

Typically, loss mitigators will offer borrowers a loan modification. Depending on the circumstances, the borrower may have to provide a down payment or pay arrearages before the loan can be modified.

If the borrower is incapable of becoming current on his mortgage note or paying future mortgage payments, the lender might agree to a short sale. In order to achieve success, borrowers must locate a qualified buyer within a short period of time.
