A Common Utah County Short Sale Myth: You Must Have Defaulted On Your Loan Before Your Lender Will Talk About A Short Sale

Utah County UT – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Nathan. Here was his question.

“I’ll stop making the payments on my condo. That way we can start on the short sale process with my lender. How far behind do I have to be before they will start negotiations.

Nathan’s comment reveals a common myth people have about short sales. They believe that a lender won’t approve a short sale unless the borrower has defaulted.

Here is the truth. Yes, some lenders will not approve a short sale unless a borrower is behind on their payments. But, that is only in certain specific instances.

But, most lenders will approve a short sale for a borrower that is current on their payments. They will ask if there is a hardship that requires the home to be sold.

“Is the borrower moving for a job transfer?”, they ask us. The bottom line is that you do not have to be behind on your payments for your lender to approve a short sale.

It is better to start the short sale negotiations while you are still current. You might even be eligible to buy another home right away.

Important Notice

Brett Bezzant, R and R Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
