A Ninth Common Hollister Short Sale Myth: A Deed-In-Lieu Is Not a Foreclosure and Therefore Doesn't Harm My Credit Like a Foreclosure Would

Hollister CA – A Deed-In-Lieu is often called a "friendly foreclosure." A Deed-In-Lieu is basically the foreclosure equivalent of a plea bargain.

The biggest beneficiary of a Deed-In-Lieu is the bank, which gets a faster, easier foreclosure. But what do you, the homeowner, get?

Unfortunately, not much. I see no benefit to a homeowner. Here are some Deed-In-Lieu myths I saw floating around on the Internet. A well-respected personal finance website is stating the following as though it is fact.

Here's the biggest myth this article has about Deed-In-Lieu: Your lender agrees not to initiate foreclosure proceedings if you agree to a Deed-In-Lieu.

The article would lead you to believe that somehow the lender would get the property without having to foreclose. That is simply not true.

A Deed-In-Lieu is when a homeowner simply tells the judge that he's not contesting the foreclosure in any way. The judge then bypasses the foreclosure lawsuit and schedules the property for a foreclosure auction.

So, the property is still sold at a foreclosure auction. It still shows up as a foreclosure on your credit report. This is why a short sale is a much better option than a Deed-In-Lieu.

With a short sale you avoid having the stain of a foreclosure on your credit. In addition, you are eligible to get a loan to buy a home in three years instead of the five-year wait necessary after a foreclosure.

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.
