With a short sale, you can sell your Atlanta home for less than the amount you owe on your mortgage! For help understanding and navigating the short sale process, look no further than Realty 1 st of Atlanta.
Benefits of a Short Sale
If your home or property value has dipped below your outstanding mortgage, a short sale is something you should consider. Below are a few major benefits of a short sale:
- Get Out of Debt: If you’ve fallen on hard financial times, paying your mortgage every month can be very difficult. By opting for a short sale, you can free yourself from your mortgage.
- Avoid Foreclosure: Going into foreclosure is embarrassing and traumatizing. A short sale is a great way to avoid foreclosure and sell your home on your own terms.
- Save Money: It may take a few months for your short sale to go through. During that time, you can save a decent amount of money and prepare for a fresh start.
Navigating the Short Sale Process
The short sale process is very simple—especially if you enlist the help of a realtor from Realty 1 st.
- Create Short Sale Package: You must compile a short-sale package with several documents, including recent tax returns, bank statements, and a letter outlining your reasons for seeking a short sale.
- List Your Home: The next step is to list your home with Realty 1 st.
- Secure a Buyer: Soon after your home is listed with Realty 1 st, at least one buyer should make a fair offer.
- Secure Lender’s Approval: Once a buyer makes an offer, you need to receive special authorization from your lender.
- Close the Deal: After your lender approves and the details are finalized, you can walk away without any outstanding debt.
