Nevada Desert Realty’s Las Vegas short sale specialist were thrilled for another successful short sale closing.The just sold Las Vegas short sale home was listed for just over a month before the owner accepted an offer. It took about 5 months to close escrow as the short sale real estate agents had to negotiate with the bank to be able to sell the home for market value. The home was purchased with financing from a conventional loan with a 20% down payment.
A Las Vegas short sale occurs when a homeowner can no longer afford monthly payments and cannot sell the home and payoff the existing mortgage. In this situation the homeowners must request a short sale with their mortgage lender and the lender must accept that they will take a lower amount than what is owed to them. Banks do this to avoid a foreclosure which requires more time and money on their part. Allowing an owner who has suffered a financial hardship to do the work to get the home sold is ultimately beneficial to the bank or lender. In this situation the lender was asking for a sale price above what the home could be sold for. Nevada Desert Realty’s short sale specialist had to negotiate with the lender, Seterus, on the sale price of this home by showing similar homes which had sold much lower than the price the bank was requesting for the home. Eventually the lender agreed with the highest price the buyers could agree to and escrow was closed.
Though 5 months is a much longer escrow than a typical traditional sale’s escrow would be, it is relatively short for a short sale. Short sales that include first, second, and sometimes a third mortgage can take months or even years to close as negotiations must occur between Nevada Desert Realty’s short sale specialist, a buyer, and however many lenders that are involved. Lenders will often not work together in anyway and all communication must be passed on by a Las Vegas short sale real estate agent. Lenders can often take weeks to return correspondence, and sales with multiple lenders or multiple problems with the home can take months to years to come to an agreement and be able to close escrow. It is very important for a homeowner behind on their payments to enlist the help of an experienced short sale real estate agent as they will know how to work with the banks to get the home sold.
