Northeast OH Short Sale Question: Should I Short Sale My Rental?

Northeast OH – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Ryan. Here was Ryan’s question.

“I own a rental house. When I bought it, the rent covered the mortgage and all the other payments. However, rental rates have declined in my area and the rent no longer covers the mortgage.

Besides that, I had to write a big check to fix the roof and carpet. i am sick of the money drain. Besides that, I am now upside down because the housing market has taken a dive here.

Can I short sale this house? I am concerned that if I do, then my lender will come chasing me for the loss. Let me know what you think. Ryan.”

Here was our answer to Ryan’s question. Ryan, we do think you should try a short sale on the house.

It sounds like the only thing holding you back is wondering whether or not you will have to repay the bank for the loss. We think you have a better than 50% chance at not repaying them a dime.

In addition, you can probably negotiate that amount down. For example, a homeowner we recently helped had to repay $20,000 when the bank lost over $120,000.

That is right. They wiped out a $120,000 debt for only $20,000. Besides, they had 10 years to repay that $20,000.

However, when you compare the interest they would have repaid on that $120,000, they saved even more (close to $193,000 after you add in interest.)

So try out a short sale. With a little creativity and the right person negotiating for you, you have a good chance at walking away from that monthly cash drain.
