What is a Short Sale
A short sale is a way to avoid foreclosure.
It is NOT a 'get out of my mortgage free card'.
A homeowner considering a short sale, must have a valid financial hardship
for why they can't pay their mortgage.
A homeowner considering a short sale, must not be able to PAY DOWN the mortgage.
A short sale has financial consequences, and all homeowners considering a short sale should speak to their accountants.
Document checklist for Homeowners wanting to complete a short sale:
1. Hardship Letter
2. Last 2 bank statements, checking, savings, business - ALL PAGES
3. Last 2 paycheck stubs for all borrowers
4. Last 2 tax returns with all schedules.
5. Last 2 statements for any other accounts including IRAs, brokerage, etc.

Time is of the essences, especially if the homeowner is in default and needs to stall or delay the foreclosure process.
