Not SURE if you want to Short Sell?

Then you need unmatched expertise of Attorney\Broker J. Arthur Roberts

Law Office of J. Arthur Roberts has a successful track record of helping clients with the short sale process by combining our Law practice with our Real Estate Brokerage.  A Short Sale is the LAST RESORT if you’ve exhausted your options for saving the property.   Short Sale is a much better outcome than Foreclosure Sale for restoring your credit worthiness.  Before we give up on Loan Modification, we will first review all possibilities for you to SAVE the property so that you can make an informed decision. We offer a “NO FEE”  Short Sale-the BANK or BUYER pays ALL of your BROKER and your ATTORNEY FEES.  PLUS, you typically, you receive $3,000.00 in negotiated “Cash for Keys” as well.

A short sale is the sale of one’s property for a price that is short of the amount owed on the loan, sometimes implemented in lieu of foreclosure when the homeowner has been unable to make timely house payments and the property is mortgaged beyond its current market value. It can be extremely complicated to get a short sale and will necessitate the help of a California foreclosure attorney to pursue the process.  While hiring a Short Sale Broker who is also an experienced Attorney has many  OBVIOUS advantages, it won’t cost you anything as the Bank or the new Buyer pays our fee.

With the help of our unique firm, we can evaluate the amount of your loan, the possible sales price through a short sale process and the lender’s policies from our past experience working with them. We will be able to present a short sale request to the lender in a manner that can increase the possibility of getting a short sale approved and allowing you to sell your home and move on with your life rather than going through foreclosure proceedings.

With a short sale, the lender is essentially agreeing to accept an amount less than they actually are owed. Once a short sale is approved, no further deficiencies are permitted per California Code of Civil Procedure § 580e. However, there can be INCOME TAX implications from a Short Sale which must be determine before you complete the sale.  There are several ways to avoid the income taxes, but you should never trust a real estate agent to give you tax advise:  Agents have an interest in the sales commission and often “gloss over” the true income tax and debt implications of Short Sales.  Under what circumstances would a lender agree to this option? The borrower typically has to make a case that they are suffering significant financial hardship which is preventing them from paying the debt. Lenders will often obtain a property appraisal in order to make an accurate determination on the actual current property value and how much a short sale will cover/not cover that amount.  Homeowners need to be ad

A short sale can adversely affect a person’s credit, however, it is important to remember that a person considering short sale will already have fallen behind on their mortgage payments, which can have an even more negative impact on credit. Before entering into a short sale, it would be wise to consult with an attorney to learn if this is the best option for your specific financial situation.
