Is this the $64,000 question in short sales?
It is the $64,000 question because that is the
amount a potential homeowner is ‘underwater’ between current market value to potential market sales price on her current home I have before me. It appears that it will be a short sale. Yes, there is a hardship for this family but one of them could make the mortgage payments but really not be able to live beyond that.
There is now only one household income where there was two. So in setting up all the requirements, needs, steps and hard questions for doing North Kingstown short sales, I have to be sure all routes have been explored. There is soul searching and economics in this decision to perhaps stay in it. I need to make sure if the Bank can and will do a successful loan modification for the one seller who wants to stay in it or we proceed to a short sale.
In some cases I have found a very few local banks willing to step forward and adjust the interest rate down to make it possible to stay in the home quickly. Not often, but sometimes. It is always worth exploring for the homeowner.
See some real estate agents will not suggest this route to sellers because again we are in the business of making money and with a loan modification we don’t make any. With short sales we do make a commission. However, if it is right for the client and can happen I am all for getting the loan modification done. It really does depend upon the willingness of the bank to negotiate and not play games with the sellers for months. That is why the North Kingstown short sale agents work out the process for the homeowners struggling. It is all about keeping homeowners in their homes if possible and we all should be working on this ending point.
