Remember, in a situation like this time is not on your side. The housing market is still coming down and the faster we get your home sold the better your chances are of getting it done before the bank takes it away. The longer we wait the tougher the lender(s) will be to deal with and the less interested in helping you. Beyond a certain point we will not be able to get you the same outcome! Your situation can have serious legal, tax and financial circumstances if it is not handled properly and quickly.
Each situation is different and lender policies change without notice so no guarantees of a certain outcome can be made. We strongly urge our clients to get tax and legal advice from qualified professionals before making important decisions such as this. We are pleased to offer referrals to those professionals upon request. References are available.
We are Michigan Short Sale Marketing Experts
Are you behind or about to be behind on your Mortgage Payments?
In Michigan it is more and more common for a homeowner to find himself/herself in a hardship situation when they are no longer able to make their mortgage payments, due to a variable interest rate that has changed, divorce, illness, job loss or a variety of other reasons. Sometimes a homeowner is current on their mortgage payment, but just got a new job out of state and must sell their home. There is a big difference between a short sale and a foreclosure on your record.
A short sale might be an option because the homeowner owes $300,000 on their mortgage, but can only sell their house for $200,000 because of current market conditions. Since the homeowner must sell their home, and the homeowner does not have the ability to bring the difference of what they can sell the house for and what is owed, in this case $100,000, then this might be a good case for a short sale.
Time Sensitive Real Estate Transaction
We work with your lender by partnering with the Title Company, which specializes in working with your lender and their particular documents. We can also point you in the direction necessary to have an attorney review all proposals offered by your lender. It’s critical that when you make the decision to short sale your house, you put your trust with a real estate agent that has experience and a successful past track record in marketing short sales.
Keep in mind if the process isn’t handled 100% correctly from the beginning you will run out of time and your home will go into foreclosure. This isn’t a normal real estate transaction where if the home doesn’t sell you can just re-list with another real estate agent. Once you stop making payments, the time clock begins. I tell you this so you know the importance of calling an expert agent.
The Benefit of a Short Sale over a Foreclosure
If you participate in a short sale, and the company you hire is successful in getting the bank to accept short of what is owed to them on your mortgage, your credit will only show 30-60-90 day late payments, contrary to an actual foreclosure on your record. If you foreclose on your home, you will not be able to get another mortgage for as long as seven years. If you manage to do a short sale, you may be able to get another home mortgage within a couple years or less.
This requires your lender to take a discount on what is owed them. Sometimes your lender will take as much as 20% or more less than what is owed. If you have a FHA mortgage, your lender will send out an appraiser and can accept approximately 82% less than the appraised value.
Why would a lender take less than what is owed to them? Because a short sale will save your lender the costly process of getting the home back in Foreclosure. The foreclosure process for a bank is a very long process and usually a very expensive project for a bank. They will have to incur the costs of an attorney, maintenance of the property, sometimes mold issues, securing the property, real estate fees along with many other fees.

Real estate is very costly for a lender. Lenders do not want to become property managers, they want to lend money. While the house is left vacant, the pipes may freeze throughout the cold winter months, the house could be vandalized, and usually the home will sell for much less than what it could sell for in the short sale process.
We are a team of real estate professionals who specialize in marketing pre-foreclosure homes for homeowners who are in this very situation. We work with your lender on your behalf to list and sell your home.
Your lender pays our commission and also your closing costs. Michigan is on the top of the list for number of foreclosures in the country and because of that, you must act quickly.
