What is a short sale?

A short sale is when a property is sold for less than what is still owed on the mortgage by the owner.

When a homeowner needs to sell but is unable to continue making mortgage payments, a short sale is an alternative to foreclosure.

Instead of taking the property back through foreclosure and attempting to sell it later, the lender offers to accept less than the whole amount owing in order to pay off a loan now.
