What is a Short Sale?

A short sale is when a bank agrees to allow a homeowner to sell a home for less than the total amount the homeowner owes the bank on any loans where the home has been used as security, and accept that reduced amount as a payoff on the mortgage loan or loans. It commonly occurs when a home no longer has a market value equal to the outstanding loan or loans and the owners are at risk of defaulting on the mortgage loan or loans. Often it is the best solution for homeowners and lenders when a property's value is "underwater" because it prevents the need for foreclosure upon default of the mortgage loan. The homeowner wants to avoid foreclosure because the short sale is not as damaging to his or her credit history and the bank wants to avoid the legal fees associated with foreclosing on property.

So why don't all buyers purchase short sales? The drawback to a short sale for a purchaser is that the bank must approve the contract between the homeowner and the buyer, and unfortunately that can take time, you can expect a typical short sale to take 60-90 days from contract to close (a conventional sale usually closes in about 30 days) and there is no guarantee the bank will approve the terms of the contract, in which case it will not close at all and the buyer is back to square one.
