If you owe more on your mortgage than the fair market value of your home and want to sell it for what ever reason, then you must short sale.

Your mortgage lender may, but is not obliged, to agree to accept a mortgage payoff that falls short of the balance that is owed originally. In other words, a bank agrees to accept less than what is owed on a borrower’s mortgage

A short sale does not always make the remaining balance due “disappear” unless specifically agreed to by the lender. In the past and in some states, the borrowers could remain legally and financially responsible for the balance amount. However, a foreclosure can be avoided through the short sale process, which is the primary goal so that the borrower’s credit is not as severely damaged as it would be through a foreclosure.

If a foreclosure is imminent, a short sale can help soften the blow and give the home owner more time to straighten out their finances and personal credit.

A foreclosure can put a serious black mark on a person’s credit. It’s a forever thing. If you go the foreclosure route and wanted to buy another property, you must disclose to the lender on your loan application, every time, forever. The stress that the foreclosure process can cause, most homeowners are willing to consider just about any alternative. The worst thing that a homeowner can do is nothing at all. By being proactive, a borrower can often find viable alternatives to foreclosure and a short sale is one of the most popular and realistic options because for those who are facing the prospect of a foreclosure, a short sale might be the right option. Loan modification may not be the best option either when facing foreclosure for most people because of the mere fact they are upside down on their mortgage.

There are many types of loans that are secured by real property. These may be purchase loans, refinanced loans, home equity loans, or one of the various other types of loans. The type of loan and type of property will determine what remedies a lender may have if the homeowner fails to make the agreed upon payments. The available remedies, the homeowner’s overall current or potential future financial strength, the lender’s cost in acquiring the loan and any shared loss or similar agreement if the loan was acquired by purchase or merger, are some of the many factors that the lender may consider in deciding how to proceed when a loan is in default.
