A Common Northeast OH Short Sale Myth: You Must Have Defaulted On Your Loan Before Your Lender Will Talk About A Short Sale

Northeast OH – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Nathan. Here was his question.

“I’ll stop making the payments on my condo. That way we can start on the short sale process with my lender. How far behind do I have to be before they will start negotiations.

Nathan’s comment reveals a common myth people have about short sales. They believe that a lender won’t approve a short sale unless the borrower has defaulted.

Here is the truth. Yes, some lenders will not approve a short sale unless a borrower is behind on their payments. But, that is only in certain specific instances.

But, most lenders will approve a short sale for a borrower that is current on their payments. They will ask if there is a hardship that requires the home to be sold.

“Is the borrower moving for a job transfer?”, they ask us. The bottom line is that you do not have to be behind on your payments for your lender to approve a short sale.

It is better to start the short sale negotiations while you are still current. You might even be eligible to buy another home right away.
