Many homeowners across the State of Florida are unfortunately underwater on their mortgage, meaning they owe more than their home is currently worth. If you’re struggling to make your mortgage payments, a short sale may be an option to consider.
A short sale is the sale of a home where the amount received is insufficient to pay the mortgage and other traditional closing costs associated with selling a piece of real estate; the sales process come up "short" and cannot pay all that is due. If the mortgage lender agrees to accept the proceeds of the short sale, this is clearly a good thing for a struggling homeowner. However, there may be tax or other consequences to the borrower. At The Perazzo Law Firm, a short sale attorney can guide you through the short sale process. A short sale can be beneficial to all parties involved -- you and your lender -- as well as help property values in your neighborhood recover quickly. A short sale mitigates your loss by stopping the slide and ensuring that you recover the most that you can for your lender. It also helps the lender in that the lender no longer has to pay for attorneys' fees and costs to prosecute a foreclosure process. Finally, the lender will not need to hire an "REO company" to secure and maintain the property after likely taking back the title to the property in a foreclosure -- all of these results are beneficial.
The short sale process, however, can also be complicated if not overwhelming. That is why we are here to help. At The Perazzo Law Firm, a short sale attorney will assist you with the entire transaction: drafting the offer, negotiating the sale, closing the transaction, writing the title insurance, and directing payment of the proceeds to the bank in order to pay off your mortgage. The attorneys at The Perazzo Law Firm will attempt to negotiate the deal in such a way that there will be no further liability to you.
