Considering a Short Sale in Avondale

 

 

Many people are considering a Short Sale of their home in Avondale Arizona.  Considering that more than 50% of homes are "under water" in Arizona - in other words - the homes are worth less than the loan balances owed - it's not surprising that homeowners are looking for solutions to avoid foreclosure in Avondale.

A Short Sale is one such solution.

If you are in the minority - that your home is worth more than you owe on it - then you need read no further.

By definition a Short Sale is a regular resale with one distinct and significant difference.  The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance owed on the loan(s).

Whether or not you meet the other "requirements" of your lender(s) such as a "valid" hardship can only be determined by consultation with a skilled and experienced professional.

There should be no upfront charge for an initial consultation - whether with an Avondale Short Sale Listing Agent or an attorney qualified and experienced in Avondale Short Sales.

At the end of the consultation you should have learned what the Short Sale process is, and should receive a significant amount of information to assist you in making a careful, informed decision.

Short Sales are not something to rush blindly into - they require commitment from the Sellers to see it through, and hinge on the Avondale Short Sale Listing Agent's skill set in

 

  • securing a fair market value contract for the property
  • presenting the Short Sale package to the Sellers Lender(s) for approval
  • and knowing how and when to escalate to senior executives at Bank of America, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and other Short Sale lien holders.
