Understanding Short Sales

Having a home that is upside down on the real estate market can be very stressful. If you owe more on your home than it is worth, then you may be experiencing considerable worry and distress over your financial future and security. When you received a notice that your home lender is going to foreclose on your mortgage, it may have been the last straw, but it is important to know that there are options available to you and your family.

If you have heard how foreclosure affects credit and want to take proactive steps to avoid this outcome, you should speak with a knowledgeable Orange County foreclosure lawyer who can advise you about the possibility of making a short sale on your home.

In a short sale, you place your home on the market at a price that will attract a buyer, even though this price may fall well below the amount that you owe. It requires you to convince your lender to forgive the difference between the sale price and the loan amount, which is known as the deficiency.

If you aren't able to gain this cooperation, you will have to look into other foreclosure alternatives or work with your attorney on fighting foreclosure. However, it is often possible to persuade the loss mitigation department of the bank to approve your request, because they would prefer to recover some of the loan and with minimal complication, rather than lose large sums in administrative fees and delays.

    "Awesome attorney"
    I recently filed for my Chapter 7 through Mr. Kevin’s law firm and I could not be happier with his services. All of my concerns and worries were eliminated when Mr. Kevin thoroughly explains the process of bankruptcy filing and court hearing. The actual court hearing is very simple and to the point, just as Mr.Kevin said. In all, i highly recommend Mr.Kevin as an attorney for anyone who is in need of financial debt relief. He is kind, transparent, and dedicated to his profession. I'm glad i have had a chance to work with Kevin.
