A short sale allows borrowers to sell their home at a market value that is less than the balance owed on the loan. This alternative to foreclosure is available only to homeowners who are experiencing an economic or financial hardship. A short sale offers both the homeowner and the lender a faster and less costly alternative to foreclosure. Homeowners may also be eligible for financial incentives by selling their home through a short sale agreement.
It is important to note that a short sale may adversely affect the ability to obtain credit in the future. We strongly suggest borrowers consult with an accountant, tax attorney or CPA (Certified Public Accountant) for advice regarding credit and tax implications.
