Hollister Short Sales: Is It Legal For A Seller to Buy The House He Is Short Selling?

"Is it legal for a short sale seller to buy the house he is selling on short to reduce his mortgage loan?” asked Mau.

Here was our answer. We don’t know of any law on the books that forbids a person from buying a home they are short selling. Here is what we do know.

Most banks and lenders don’t allow it. If the short sale negotiator sees a sales contract with you as the buyer, then they won’t approve the short sale.

Sure, you could do fishy paperwork to buy the home yourself. But, you risk getting in trouble for fraud if you were caught.

I think the biggest reason people aren’t trying this is because they can’t get a loan after a short sale. You aren’t able to buy another house for 2 years after a short sale.

There is an FHA loan program that allows you to buy after a short sale. But, one of the stipulations is that you must be buying a smaller or inferior home. If you are looking to reduce your mortgage loan, then do it the legal way. Get a loan modification with your current lender. Or, short sale your current home, rent for 2 years, and then buy a new home.

That allows you to wipe out the upside down debt and move on with your life. And best of all, you aren’t at risk of going to jail for fraud. Thinking about a short sale?

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.
