The Final Numbers On How A Northeast OH Short Sale Reduces Losses

Northeast OH – On our last blog post, we ran some numbers on why a short sale reduces a lender’s losses by 20% compared to a foreclosure.

Today I am going to add all the numbers together. That way we can see exactly how much this lender lost by not accepting the short sale.

I am using the real life example of a short sale that was listed for sale for $425,000. The lender turned down an offers for $385,000 and ended up selling the home for $230,000.

Let’s add up the costs.

$155,000 in sales price loss. ($385,000 minus $230,000.)

$30,318.75 in lost interest income. ($385,000 lent at 4.5% interest over 21 months.)

$11,411.89 in property taxes that would have been paid by the short sale buyer, but instead were paid by the lender. ($6,521.08 annual property taxes over 21 months.)

$3,000 in estimated foreclosure costs. (This is to pay the foreclosure attorney and the court costs.)

$4,200 in Homeowner’s Insurance. ($200 monthly times 21 months.)

$203,930.60 in total lost because they didn’t accept the short sale offer. Ouch! I don’t care how rich you are (or how many bailouts you received), that is a lot of money.

Yes, these numbers are correct. Real estate is an expensive business. It costs a lot of money to own and maintain a house.

Just look at how much you spend on your mortgage, property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, maintaining your house, and mowing your yard. Now multiply that by 21 months. Make sense?
