What is a Short Sale?

A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the proceeds from selling the property will fall short of the balance of debts secured by liens against the property and the property owner cannot afford to repay the liens’ full amounts, whereby the lien holders agree to release their lien on the real estate and accept less than the amount owed on the debt. Any unpaid balance owed to the creditors is known as a deficiency. Short sale agreements do not necessarily release borrowers from their obligations to repay any deficiencies of the loans, unless specifically agreed to between the parties.

How much does this time saving service cost the agent or the seller? FINALLY, a way to help smooth this process and ensure a more timely closing. Here are the 5 simple steps to working with us:

  • Step 1: Seller contacts their lender and advises them of their desire to do a short sale. At that point the seller can inquire as to if they will qualify for any government or lender incentive programs.
  • Step 2: Real Estate Professional takes listing and gives short sale package from Grand Canyon Title to Seller to fill out. This package will be submitted with all supporting documents as soon as you have a fully executed contract. It is very important that all documents submitted be filled out completely. Supporting documents from the seller should not be collected until there is an accepted offer. These documents can be E Mailed, Faxed or Picked up from your office.
