What is a Short Sale?


A short sale is a property sells for less than the amount owed on the mortgage. But to be technical, here's a more official definition:

  • A homeowner is 'short' when the amount owed on his/her property is higher than current market value.
  • A short sale occurs when a negotiation is entered into with the homeowner's mortgage company (or companies) to accept less than the full balance of the loan at closing. A buyer closes on the property, and the property is then 'sold short' of the total value of the mortgage.

If a homeowner can no longer afford to pay for their mortgage and does not qualify for a loan modification; a short sale can be an excellent solution to avoid foreclosure. Due to overwhelming market changes, banks and lenders have become much more negotiable when it comes to these transactions.
