Why Hiring an Attorney Is Necessary to Negotiate a Short Sale & Benefits of doing so

Posted by Anthony Senerchia Jr. | Mar 22, 2023 | 0 Comments

Did you know you might be eligible for a short sale if you're facing foreclosure and can no longer afford your house?

What is a Short Sale and the benefits of doing one?

The primary benefit of a short sale is that it will allow you to avoid foreclosure and preserve your credit if you find yourself in a situation where you owe more on your house than it is worth and you need to sell.

The benefits of a short sale include:

  • Following the sale, you won't have any debt. Your loan will be regarded as "settled" by your lender.
  • You'll be in a position to prevent foreclosure.
  • The timelines and your circumstances will be under your control.
  • Less damage will be done to your credit than in a foreclosure.
  • As opposed to a foreclosure, you will be able to buy a home sooner.
  • There won't be any public information about your credit.
  • The sale can be conducted in private.

Why Hiring an Attorney Is Necessary to Negotiate a Short Sale

To effectively close a transaction, you will need the assistance of a short-sale lawyer who can negotiate with the bank, realtors, lenders, and real estate attorneys.

Legal counsel cannot be given by a real estate agent who isn't admitted to practice law. Due to laws constantly changing, it is a good idea to have an attorney in your corner guiding you through this process.
