Short Sales

Prices vary depending on number of liens and difficulty of lender

A short sale is where the mortgage and other liens exceed the value of the property and the costs associated with closing a sale.  A short sale requires that a broker be used to list the property and that the transaction is an arm's-length negotiation (other than in very limited circumstances where the homeowner may be able to buy back their own property and can get funding for that purchase).  A property generally needs to be listed for 90 days for the owner to be considered for a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure.
