Can I Short Sell My Utah County Home If I Have Substantial Assets And A Stable Income?

Utah County UT – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Dave. Here is Dave’s Question.

“I bought several investment properties at the peak of the market. The homes have dropped in value by almost 40% and I am losing money on the rent every month.

I am sick of writing a check every single month to cover the loss. I would like to short sale these properties if possible. I am just wondering if the banks would allow it. What do you think?” asked Dave.

Here was our answer. Dave, there is no answer that is correct 100% of the time. In your situation, it depends on your lender. Many lenders will allow a short sale.

Others won’t talk to you until you are behind on the payments. I do know a friend of a friend who is in a situation very similar to yours and is short selling several properties.

He has substantial assets and a good income. Some of the banks were easy to work with. He was able to stay current on the payments until they approved the short sale.

However, some of the other banks weren’t as easy to work with. He had to stop making payments before they would talk to him.

It all depends on the bank and how much you want to short sale. I know several people that write big checks every month just trying to stay afloat on their rental properties.

If you aren’t planning on buying another house for 2-3 years, and want to stop the bleeding, then a short sale is a great option.

If I were you, then I would attempt a short sale. It doesn’t cost you any money. I don’t see how you can lose.

If they don’t approve the short sale, then you are exactly where you are at today. Thinking about a short sale?

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.

The views expressed here are Brett’s personal views and do not reflect the views of R and R Realty.
