Does the celebrating of the holiday season go by much more quickly than ever before, are we getting older, or both? In any case, we hit the ground running this year and we’re calling 2012 the Year of the Short Sale.
It’s old news by now that the economy is a hot topic. Because it’s become the focus of the news – current and special segments, the general public is thinking about their personal economics and it seems everyone has an opinion.
It used to be that people experiencing financial difficulties would be hesitant to talk openly about their problems. Now, with economic conversations of all kinds, up front and center, it’s no longer taboo. That means some people know just enough to be dangerous.
A lot of talk has centered around the housing market and most people’s biggest investment – their residence. More than ever, Americans are thinking about their equity, their mortgage, their bills and how to manage it all, particularly when finances are tight and especially if they’re upside down in their mortgage.
The good news is the short sale has been getting quite a lot of press lately too. Foreclosure hurts families, hurts neighborhoods and communities and the damage left in the wake of a foreclosure, like ruined credit, is sometimes only realized after the fact.
Consumers are starting to understand that by taking advantage of the short sale, they can come out much better than if their home is foreclosed. In most instances, they can keep their credit intact, they can get back into home ownership more easily and in many cases they can walk away with some cash they can use to get situated while they sort out their future.
Because there’s more talk about short sales in the media and heightened consumer awareness, there is of course more need for completed successful short sales transacted by trained agents. Your job can be made much easier when your seller is open to a short sale – it’s not such a ‘foreign’ concept as it once was and you can thank the news media for making your job a bit easier in that regard.
Lenders have also come to realize that the short sale mitigates loss for them. They don’t want foreclosure inventory, especially inventory left damaged (or worse) by disgruntled owners. As a result, they are much more willing to work with short sale agents, to make the deal happen and this can include hefty financial incentives for successful sells.
