It really depends on the type of financing the buyer is trying to obtain.
For example with FHA, the down-payment is required to be funded by the buyer, though the borrower (buyer) can receive gift funds that do not require repayment - no loans for "down" allowed. Also, the "giver" cannot be anyone related to the transaction (e.g. seller, builder, or real estate agent).

If it were me and I were you, I'd ask your buyers to speak with their lender and first find out "what" if any assistance is available to them (down payment assistance programs) without your intervention, "before" asking about a seller carry which may or may not be permissible.

Consult also your agent (who has a much better view) for their input and ideas.

Good luck!!

This is why you could have used a listing agent. with a cloudy title and liens no buyer would release money to seller before closing. You may need an attorney to review the paperwork if it is drawn up by teh buyer and the sellers agent would usually look out for you, you may need the attorney to look out for you. ... more

You DEFINITELY need to talk to your attorney about this. And I completely agree with those who said this issue should have been addressed PRIOR to undertaking a short sale transaction.

Those statutes pertain to FORECLOSURES. NOT short sales. Short sale avoids foreclosure and the rules are different.

Also, communicate with your bank's loss mitigation person. I am presuming you are not broker represented, but if you are, have your broker communicate with the LM analyst. Find out what the bank is going to do. It may or may not be pleasant but at least you will know.

There are some variables I have encountered from my short sale experiences:

1. Some banks have a threshhold of pain where it comes to deficiency. You said 30-35k but what is the price of the house and the amount of debt? I did one this summer via BOA and they said they needed 80% of the loan back after costs to not pursue the deficiency. That was an investment property.

2. Just closed one this past month and the property was an investment property. That bank is pursuing the deficiency.

3. Just did one this Fall with Chase. That was a seasonal home. The bank got 50% of the loan amount but did not pursue deficiency for that seller.

These are anecdotal and not to be used as a guideline. The point is that different banks do different things and short sales are not foreclosures.

Good luck at any rate... :)

Hi Cliff,

Welcome to Trulia Voices!

This seems to be a rhetorical question in which case, it would be much better suited in our Blogs section. Blogging on Trulia is a great way to share information you have with consumers and our rules about self-promotion apply less strictly there than they do here in our Q&A section. Blogging is also extremely easy and you can add links, photos and even videos.

Please keep this in mind for the future and please access if you'd like to create a blog post.

I also encourage you to review our our Community Guidelines and our Agent Best Practices at the links below to help you make the most of your time on Trulia Voices.…

Please be sure to let us know if you have any questions about this or any general feedback for us.

Best Wishes,

Emily Gibson

As long as you are not planning to pay a commission to any unlicensed party, it 'sounds' like you are simply FSBOing the property.
I'd suggest that you contact a real estate attorney, however--to inform you what you should do to reduce liability and risk.
Contact one of our great local title companies and ask them for local resources.
Good luck!
I personally would NOT sell my own property.
I want 'someone' in between me and a buyer to provide a bit of a 'comfort zone'. :)
