Rockland County Attorney Helping Homeowners

A short sale is one option available to help distressed homeowners avoid foreclosure when the value of the property is less than the amount remaining on the mortgage or mortgages. A short sale is best defined as an opportunity to sell your home to a buyer who agrees to a predetermined price, below the mortgage amount. All financing parties must agree to the terms of the short sale, including the mortgage originator and the lending institution.

Getting large financial corporations to agree to let the property change hands at less than the amount owed requires an in-depth understanding of New York real estate law and the skills to negotiate effectively. The hard truth is that short sales always require a minimum of six months for approval and the many of them evaporate because of buyer impatience, or because the financial parties decline the offer.

I Negotiate Directly With the True Decision Makers at a Bank

Banks don't like losing money. Most short sales fail because the homeowner works with the lower level workers assigned to review the case on the merits of a financial formula. The true decision makers are on the inside, higher up the management ranks, and that is where I begin fighting. I know what mortgage lenders and bankers expect out of a short sale. I get to the heart of the decision-makers inside the bank.
