WHAT IS A SHORT SALE
(also known as a pre-foreclosure sale)
A Short Sale typically is executed to prevent a home foreclosure. Often a bank will choose to allow a Short Sale if they believe that it will result in a smaller financial loss than foreclosing. For the home owner, the advantages include avoidance of having a foreclosure on their credit history and the partial control of the monetary deficiency.
Additionally, a Short Sale is typically faster and less expensive than a foreclosure. In short, a Short Sale is nothing more than negotiating with lien holders a payoff for less than what they are owed.
Jeff & Fawn Star have preformed literally hundreds of Short Sales in Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria and the surrounding cities in Maricopa County. They have worked with just about every bank out there and know all of the Short Sale policies and procedures that go along with each an every bank in order to execute and complete the Short Sale transaction from start to finish in a timely manner.
Remember banks are in the lending business, not the real estate business. TheyThe Bank cannot make money unless loans are made. Holding property in inventory does not make the bank money. In fact they lose even more money because the home is now vacant, subject to vandalism, maintenance and upkeep that does not stop. The bank also has to hire a property management company to oversee the property. Get the picture? The bank does not want the property. It wants to sell it. This is great for a first time home buyer. He/she can get a great below market buy.
