Short Sale Real Investing

Nov 16, 2007
If you want to be a competitive vendor in the market of real estate, you must know the technique of short sales. The main advantage of this technique is to allow discount to real estate investors from the lender.

What are short sales in real estate investing?

A short sale process comes in the picture when lender accepts a discount on mortgage in order to avoid a possible bankruptcy or foreclosure auction. In this method, instead of buying the property from a seller itself, you have to purchase the corresponding property from the lender. As an advantage you will get a handsome discount on that property. For instance, suppose a home owner facing foreclosure, has an existing mortgage of $400,000. Then you offer to the lender directly for $300,000, which may be accepted as a full payment loan.

The question arises here that why they are willing to accept this kind of deal and give discounts? Well, there are two main reasons behind this deal. First reason, banks do not want bad loans to be written on their books or record because bad record hinder the growth of the banks. Therefore, whenever banks get the opportunity to sell the property without any huge loss, they will sell it. Second reason, lenders know that if property goes to auction, they will pay heavy loss because if the property goes for auction, there are so many fees involved in it. Thus, they would give discount and finished it.
It is the best time to jump in the short sale process of real estate and invest in it since the foreclosures are increasing rapidly.

Lenders' willing to give discount

Almost every lender offers discount. Market is inundating with lenders, who are willing to give discounts. It might be possibility that you find lender who dose not provide any discount but it is rare. Only two or three lenders in many may not offer any loan or provide small discount.

What kind of property is best for investing in short sale?

According to shrewd investors in short sale investing system, the best property for investing is the houses that requires lot of repair and renovation because on these kinds of properties, lender will give you a huge amount of discount to investors. Properties that are leveraged are also very good for investing. Most experienced investors are willing to invest in over leveraged properties.
Properties having large amount of second mortgages are also recommended as gold because second mortgage can be eradicated at the foreclosure auction.

Important step while dealing in short sale

There are many steps required to take while dealing in short sales. But the most vital step is to getting the deed of property. Most of the investors forget this essential step while investing in short sale. It might be the case when, homeowners change their minds, and want to back out from the deal as they scared or in other case, they want to do negotiation again. If you have property deed then you could easily escape from the trap, otherwise you might get in trouble by bearing heavy losses.
