)-- The Ballen Group is a team of Las Vegas real estate agents. This team of Las Vegas real estate agents originally specialized in Las Vegas short sales. Now that the economy in Las Vegas is looking up, The Ballen Group’s Las Vegas home sales are 66% traditional home sales.
A Las Vegas short sale is a sale of Las Vegas real estate in which the proceeds from selling the property will fall short of the balance of debts secured by liens against the property. In addition, the property owner cannot afford or chooses not to repay the liens full amounts.
Then the Las Vegas short sale’s lien holders, this Las Vegas resident’s bank, agree to release their lien on the real estate and accept less than the amount owed on the debt. Any unpaid balance owed to the creditors is known as a deficiency.
With foreclosures on the rise in the US, banks are looking for any way they can to minimize their foreclosure losses. Basically, it is much more cost effective for a bank to agree to a short sale rather foreclose on a home.
Banks aren’t in the business of owning real estate and collecting monthly mortgage payments, so a bank will take a minor loss in a Las Vegas short sale to start that payment cycle again. Additionally, if the home is in foreclosure, a bank must pay for upkeep, insurance, and other costs. Plus, through the foreclosure process, the bank would incur legal and court fees.
