Jacqueline Alicia Salcines



In the current Florida housing market, many people hear the term short sale or even look at these properties when trying to purchase a home, but they do not understand what a short sale is. A short sale occurs when someone owes more on his or her home than it is worth, which also known as being underwater on your mortgage, and are no longer able to maintain the mortgage payments. The bank may then agree to accept an amount short of the balance due on the mortgage, thus allowing the owner to sell the home to a new owner who can afford to make payments.

In certain situations, short sales are a viable solution that can help avoid foreclosure. Although the amount of the loan does not change, the bank is now willing to accept less than the balance owed in return for allowing the home to be sold. It takes an experienced attorney to analyze whether a short sale is in the best interest for a homeowner and to steer through the complex procedures successfully in order for a bank to accept a short sale petition.
