Another Common Chicago Short Sale Myth: The Foreclosure Process Goes So Fast That I Don’t Have Time To Short Sale

Posted on June 14th, 2011 in Short Selling/Buying.

Chicago IL – The Stop foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Susan about short sales. Here was Susan’s Question.

“My home is scheduled to be going on the courthouse steps in about 2 months. I had thought about short selling, but a friend told me I wouldn’t have enough time to do it.

Because of that I didn’t pursue a short sale earlier. Recently I decided to look into it further. It looks like a good option compared to foreclosure. My question is this.

Do I have enough time to short sale my house, or is the foreclosure already too far along? Please let me know. Sincerely, Susan.”

Here was our answer. Susan, we can still help you with a short sale. Most lenders will postpone a foreclosure when a short sale offer is in place. Yes, a short sale usually takes 2-6 months to process.

However, many lenders will postpone the sale while a short sale is in the works. In addition, some short sales go faster than the normal 2-6 months.

If your lender owns you loan in house, then the decision maker will be easy to reach. They can approve or deny the short sale in a matter of a week or two.

So, please let us help you. We have a good success rate even when the foreclosure process has already been started. As you well know, a short sale beats a foreclosure because you can buy another home much sooner.

Important Notice

Phil Buoscio, Better Living Realty – Buoscio Brokerage, Inc., 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.
