What's a Real Estate Short Sale?

A short sale may help you sell your home - even if you owe more on your mortgage than you home is worth.

Like many homeowners, you may feel like the lender is giving you no direction - no hope. Many lenders offer a short sale option to help you sell your home for a price close to fair market value. If eligible for a short sale, your lender may agree to settle your mortgage debt for less than what you owe.


In other words you're shorting or settling a mortgage debt. That's why its called a "Short" "Sale".

A short sale may be an option if:

  •  You have a financial hardship
  •  The value of your home is less than the mortgage debt
  •  A loan modification is not an option
  •  You meet other qualifying factors
