Can we move out of our home which is in the market for a short sale before we have an offer for a short sale on the table?

Help the community by answering this question:


You may move out if you wish. However, please know that sometimes a lender will send inspectors to short sale homes to verify occupancy. If the inspector finds a home vacant they may execute the lenders right to secure, manage & even winterize the property. This can lead to a filing of foreclosure or if a foreclosure is already underway it may lead to a foreclosure acceleration. When they secure the property they may have the right to enter the home and remove any personal property they find if it is deemed detrimental to the property.

You can and it happens all the time, just not a good idea to leave your home empty, if it is vandalized it may not be salable.

Good luck,
