West Palm Beach Short Sale Attorneys

A short sale is the sale of real estate in which the proceeds are less than what is owed on the balance of the loan. The negotiation to undergo a short sale versus a foreclosure is done between the Lender and the homeowner's representation (this is why you need an experienced West Palm Beach Short Sale Attorney to represent you). In this negotiation, both parties agree upon a discounted loan balance due to financial or economic hardship that the borrower faces. Your Lender will incur a smaller financial loss in a short sale versus the borrower's continued non-payment or foreclosure.

As a result, Lenders have more incentive to agree to your short sale, which is typically faster and less expensive for the borrower than a foreclosure. Short sales also mitigate damage to credit history and can partially control debt. Lenders usually have loss mitigation departments that evaluate and determine short sale transactions. The experienced West Palm Beach Short Sale Attorneys at the Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC understand this processes in-depth; and, as a result, has a greater chance of obtaining a successful outcome.
