Short Sales & Distressed Homes

What is a “Short Sale”? –
Short Sale Definition:

“A Short Sale occurs when the proceeds of a real estate sale fall short of the balance owed on the property and; the underlying lienholder (Lender) agrees to accept a purchase offer from a Buyer that does not cover the existing mortgage including any costs of sale; and the Seller does not have sufficient assets to make up the deficiency.”
