What is a short sale?
The current owner of the property owes more to the mortgage company then the current value.
Is every home a good candidate for a short sale?
Here are the questions that need to be answered weather you are the seller or the buyer.
Most banks require a Realtor to have the listing on the property and to negotiate the short sale.Â You want a Realtor who has taken the classes and have done short sales.
If a property has 2 or 3 mortgages on the property by different lenders it is definitely harder to do a short sale, but the guidelines are changing daily, so you always need to contact the lenders to see what the guidelines are.
