What Is A Short Sale?
A Short Sale occurs when a lender agrees to discharge a mortgage for an amount less than the lender is contractually due. Short Sales are common when property values have declined, foreclosure rates have increased, and borrowers are experiencing financial problems. With these market conditions, it is common for sellers to have to bring money to the closing table to sell. Therefore, many sellers are unable to close without the lender agreeing to a short sale.
Attorney Brian Glover has successfully helped sellers avoid foreclosure and sell their homes by negotiating short-sale payoff agreements with their lenders. Attorney Glover is experienced in drafting short sale proposals and negotiating with lenders. In short sale transactions, the listing real estate agent gets paid their standard commission, the seller’s closing costs get paid, and sellers, generally, are not required to bring any money to the closing table.
If you are facing foreclosure or would like to sell your home even though it is worth less than you owe, call Attorney Glover at (508) 990-4555 to schedule a free consultation.
What Documentation Will Lender Require Prior To Approving My Short Sale?
Most lenders generally require the following information prior to approving a short sale: Purchase and Sale Agreement, Hardship Letter, proposed HUD Settlement Statement (which shows to what extent the lender will be shorted), last 2 years Tax Filings, last 2 months Bank Statements, last 2 months paystubs, financial statement, Realtor Listing Agreement, Multiple Listing Service History. The short sale proposal often amounts to 50 or more pages.

Glover is experienced in preparing short sale proposals that get approved by lenders. We are persistent in our efforts to obtain short sale bank approval as quickly as possible.
