Short Sale your House with No Equity in Bonita Springs
This is my least favorite of the three ways we talk about in this article on how to sell your house with no equity in Bonita Springs… But its much better than a foreclosure!
After attaining the approval of their lender to sell for less than the amount still owing on the mortgage, short sales allow homeowners to sell a house with no equity in Bonita Springs.
In a short sale real estate transaction, you and your real estate agent will be doing a great deal of leg work to get all of the appropriate information to your lender in order for them to accept less than you owe for the mortgage thus avoiding foreclosure if you are in default.
This can include but not limited to a hardship letter, income / expense sheet, bank statements, tax returns, pay stubs, release and authorization form and an accepted offer between you and a buyer “subject to lender approval.” You can review the entire short sale process here.
If approved, (and there is no guarantee of a short sale approval), expect your credit score to lower for the short sale. Now this is much better on your credit reporting than that of a foreclosure which can appear for seven years. In a short sale scenario, most approval letters we received showed something to the effect “settled for less than amount owed.”
If you are in default, in most cases you are up against the clock. The lenders will have their attorneys proceed with foreclosure filings and this doesn’t stop until the short sale is completed. And many times you might need to retain an attorney to slow down the foreclosure in order to successfully complete the short sale.
Professional buyers like Steve & Joleigh at Creating Real Estate Solutions LLC are highly seasoned local investors who want to help their neighbors here in Bonita Springs sell their houses regardless if they have no equity.
At the very end we will talk about this strategy more in detail.
Lease Option To Purchase
One way to sell a house with no equity in Bonita Springs is by finding a buyer interested in a lease option to purchase. These buyers typically don’t qualify for conventional loans and need time to get their finances together.
There are many benefits to selling through a lease option to purchase if you’re willing to take on the risks of working with this category of “buyers.” With this strategy, you can earn an income stream from the property, get a decent down payment that could be non refundable if they do not exercise their right to purchase and you can make it where the tenant / buyer is responsible for the property like certain repairs and upkeep at their expense.
However, in this scenario, a lease option to purchase can also have its downside. They could leave the property in disrepair leaving you with thousands in repairs. And many who are looking for a lease option likely have poor credit and maybe shaky employment. Always do your due diligence like credit, background and employment checks.
Selling a house with no equity in Bonita Springs using a lease option strategy is a fantastic solution to rid yourself of a property that you no longer need or want.
