About Short Sales
Defiency judgement waiver? I Get Results!
Yes that is a key point for my clients. One of the challenges a short sale seller faces is the possibility of the lender coming back years later to collect the deficiency on the original loan. One of my jobs and challenges as your agent is to get in writing that your lender will not seek a deficiency judgement and release the borrower (you) from further obligation therein, and waive all rights to pursue further judgment or deficiency. This is a key point when negotiating my clients short sales and should be a key point for you as short sale seller. Do not settle for less! Without that in writing you will be vulnerable to the lender coming after you seeking payment in full.

What is a Short Sale in St. George Really like?
From a Realtor’s view a short sale is a complicated transaction that requires special skill sets and knowledge. St. George short sales average 25% to 27% of our active listings. That accounts for at least 3 times the amount when compared to St. George foreclosures. Even though the chances of closing a short sale is less than that of a foreclosure or traditional real estate sale they apply downward pressure on prices of homes that have much better odds of closing.
No two St. George short sales have been alike, the rules are ever changing and the rules of business vary with the different lien holders. The buyer or the seller can cancel the contract at any time prior to 3rd party approval for no reason or to bump for a better offer. The short sale home can legally remain active on the St. George Board of Realtors MLS and have several offers in place. The time line for a short sale in St. George varies for the seller, it can be as long as one or more years from beginning to end or as short a 90 days. A buyer with good timing and an aggressive real estate agent can get a short sale in Southern Utah done in 30 days or less. As a general rule a short sale in St. George is a challenge and worth exploring under certain circumstances and direction from a expert in Southern Utah short sales.
Short Sale for the Seller
There are as many different reasons a seller might consider a short sale as there are short sales. In Southern Utah and St. George one out of every four homes for sale are short sales! The approach to getting your home sold as a short sale will vary with each and every case. If certain conditions are met you as a seller may be eligible for Federal Government help in the form of HAFA. Contact Walter for any questions regarding the HAFA program.
Many homeowners may feel that they can no longer afford their St. George Utah home, but want to avoid the negative effects of foreclosure. The Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) Program offers homeowners, their mortgage servicers, and investors an incentive for completing a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure. With these options, under HAFA, a homeowner leaves their home to transition to more affordable housing and alleviate the mortgage debt they owe.
These options are available for St. George homeowners who:
- Do not qualify for a trial mortgage modification under the Making Home Affordable Program
- Do not successfully complete the trial period for their modification
- Miss at least two consecutive payments during their modification period
- Or request a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure
There are banks ie Bank of America that have streamlined the process of their short sales and even reinvented the wheel and come up some proprietary programs for short sale sellers. Some of these include cash in the seller’s pocket. We have been successful in negotiating cash to the seller at close to help them vacate and get a fresh start.
