Short Sale Information



A short sale is a real estate transaction that happens when the home owner owes more on their home than the home is worth. In this situation the lender will agree to accept a offer on the home that is lower than the amount left to pay. The name “short sale” can be decieiving because what this transaction is not actually “short”. It is really a long and time consuming process, much longer than a traditional home for sale. The good news is that a California short sale is a great opportunity for the home seller because it allows them to avoid foreclosure and allows them to settle their loan with the lender for a lower amount.   HOW CAN I QUALIFY FOR A SHORT SALE IN CALIFORNIA?
