Will I Still Have To Pay Property Taxes If I Do A Northeast Ohio Short Sale?

Northeast OH – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Paul. Here is Paul’s Question.

“I am thinking about a short sale, but I am behind on my property taxes. Will I still have to pay them if I short sale my home? Max.”

Here is the answer to Paul’s Question: In most cases your lender will pay those property taxes. Property taxes are a first priority lien on a property.

That means that if a property is foreclosed upon, then they still have to be paid. They don’t go away for any reason.

This is also why most lenders want to charge you monthly and then pay the property taxes themselves. They know that the taxes are a big bill that only comes once a year.

Not everyone can afford that big bill. Because your lender knows they will still have to pay the taxes after a foreclosure, they are willing to pay them during a short sale.

A foreclosure is a liquidation of the property to simply get what they can and move on. A short sale has been proven to net them more money than a foreclosure.

So if they are liquidating the property, why net more money from the sale with a short sale and avoid a foreclosure? That’s why they will pay the taxes when you short sale.

Every short sale the Stop Foreclosure Institute has sold resulted in the lender paying the property taxes that were owed. In some cases they paid 2-3 years of property taxes. Thinking about a short sale?
