Here’s Proof That Your Bank Actually Wants You To Short Sale Your Utah County Home

Utah County UT – A recent article in the Tampa Bay Times shows how much lenders prefer short sales to a foreclosure. It discussed how Bank of America recently came out with new short sale incentives.

Bank of America is willing to pay borrowers up to $30,000 for moving expenses to short sale their house. I doubt that many homeowners will receive $30,000. Most will receive the lower amount of $2,500.

But that is still better than repaying your lender thousands of dollars for their loss. As you can see, banks like short sales. But, why is that?

It comes down to one simple thing: money. The banks have foreclosed on thousands of properties. They have also assisted with thousands of short sales.

Over time they realized that selling a property as a short sale usually nets them more money. Here is an example. We had a home for sale as a short sale. A buyer offered to buy the home for $275,000.

The bank reviewed the offer and turned it down. They thought the house was worth more than that. We tried and tried to convince them to accept the offer. But, they wouldn’t accept it.

So we put the property back on the market. The market continued to decline. We submitted all of the new offers to the lender. However, they continued to turn them down.

Finally 18 months later they accepted an offer. But, this time the house was selling for $235,000. I’m sure that shocks you. What! That lender just lost $40,000! Wouldn’t someone be angry?

No. No one is angry. That’s crazy, isn’t it? But, it’s just part of life for these lenders. They have to make decisions every day. They are used to losing money on foreclosures and short sales.

They have seen this story before on many other homes. Overall they know that short sale will net them more money than a foreclosure. As a result they prefer short sales over a foreclosure. 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.
