A Sixth Common Hollister Short Sale Myth: Banks Accept Short Sales Because Foreclosure Auctions Bring Much Less Money
Hollister CA – I'm writing a series in response to a number of big misconceptions I saw on a personal finance website online.

I don't know if the personal finance writer either didn't know about short sales and was pretending to be an expert, or if he was being fed bad information.

It could have been the latter, because there is so much incorrect information about short sales being discussed as though it is fact.

The article states that banks accept short sales because foreclosure auctions bring much less money. Most people who read that think foreclosure auctions usually end horribly for the banks.

After all, not everyone can bid at the foreclosure auctions. Most people hear about how people make a lot of money buying properties at the foreclosure auction.

They read that and think the properties sell at the foreclosure auction for a big discount. But that isn't true, and that's why this statement isn't correct.

Yes, banks do prefer a short sale over a foreclosure because the home usually sells for more money as a short sale. But banks aren't forced to sell the home for a big discount at a foreclosure auction.

Most foreclosure auctions give banks the right to bid all the way up to the amount they are owed. It doesn't cost them anything to bid all the way up to the amount they're owed. They loaned the money, and that is their bid.

All they have to pay are the court fees to conduct the sale and any taxes on the sale. This is why most properties that are foreclosed on are bought by the banks. They put them on the open market.

The goal is to sell the foreclosed property for as much money as possible. This is why most upside-down homes sell to the bank at the foreclosure auction.

Important Notice

Israel Gonzalez, Beale Properties, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
