What is an Orange Park Short Sale?
A short sale in Orange Park Florida takes place when a borrower can prove to their lender that they are not able to continue to pay their mortgage. In most cases, the Orange Park home’s value is less than what the homeowner owes. The home is then sold for a price that can compete in today’s market. Normally, this would put the home owner in a hole after the sale, but my team and I work with lenders to ensure the borrower receives a release from the remaining debt at closing.
Banks prefer short sales to foreclosures in most cases. The average foreclosure costs a lender $58,000. This doesn’t include all the extra work required on the bank’s part. Short sales often save lenders money, even after forgiving the borrower of their debt! In addition, too many foreclosure look bad to bank investors which can harm a bank’s future.
How to Qualify
A short sale is not for everyone. Instead, short sales in Orange Park are ideal for borrowers who NEED to sell rather than want to sell. In order to qualify, a homeowner must typically prove to their lender that they are in some type of financial hardship that hinders their ability to pay for the home.
A few examples are:
The entire process is completely free to you! Your lender will pay all seller closing costs, which includes our commission.
