Why Do Northeast OH Short Sales Fail?

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

“I’ve heard that there is a 70% failure rate on short sales. Is that true? If so, then why do so many short sales fail? James”

Here is the answer to his question. Yes, a lot of short sales do fail. However, those statistics are for individual short sale offers submitted to lenders. If the first offer on a short sale is turned down, then another offer is usually submitted.

On each individual house being sold, the failure rate is much lower. Here are the reasons that many short sales do fail.

Reason #1: The sales price is lower than the lender wants. The lender thinks the house is worth X, but the sales price is $30,000 lower than X.

The lenders are not always getting good information on the property values. In my opinion, their valuation method is flawed.

There is a serious conflict of interest in the way lenders obtain their property value. But, the lenders don’t really care to fix it.

Reason #2: The tenant doesn’t want the home to be showed. Many short sales are rental properties. However, the tenant doesn’t want the home to be shown to buyers.

Why not? Well, if the house sells then they will have to move out and find another place. They are comfortable where they are at and they don’t want to move.

This is why a home that is rented is much harder to short sell than a vacant home.
