Short Sale

What is a Short Sale?

A short sale is the sale of the property in which your lender agrees to accept less than you owe. A short sale is almost always more favorable than foreclosure or Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure and may prevent the need to file bankruptcy if your mortgage debt is your primary concern.

We handle all of the communicate with the lender and counsel you accordingly. You can pursue a short sale at no cost and remain positioned to explore other options in the event the lender does not agree to a short sale or provides short sale terms that are unacceptable to you.

Benefits of a Short Sale

An attorney protected short sale is often the best alternative for property owners who have little or no equity in the property or have limited financial resources for other alternatives. Short sales are less damaging to your credit than a foreclosure or bankruptcy. A short sale also gives the attorney an opportunity to negotiate the release of all of your debt secured by the home. It is always our primary objective to negotiate with the bank to waive any deficiency in full.

Don't Walk Away

A short sale is almost always preferable to foreclosure.

You can cancel at any time if the short sale is not in your best interest or you decide to pursue a broader legal strategy.
