When I list a short-sale I provide my clients with some choices for a short-sale negotiator, this is the person who will be working with your lender.  The sellers lender will typically pay the costs to sell the house, from the real estate fees to the negotiator fees.  There still may be some associated fees which the negotiator may be able to explain and will often depend on the lender.

Buying or selling, every case is different and there are no guarantees, but working with a professional who has experience in short-sales is the key.  The process is longer, more complicated, and the factors for listing can be different than a traditional sale.  I go over all this with my clients.

If you have any questions, or need help, please contact me.

Short Sale Hardships in NH

Call or Email Me with Questions

If you think your home is underwater one of the first questions that may come to your mind: “Is my house eligible for a short-sale?” One of the most important components in determining if you are eligible for a short sale is the hardship letter.

Hardship is defined as an adversity.  Something, difficult or unpleasant, that you must endure or overcome.

If you’ve already done some research you may have heard of the typical hardships like job loss, divorce, or illness, but sometimes other types of hardships can be approved. You also need to show a financial hardship…you need to be in a position that you cannot pay the deficiency. Every situation is different, every bank is different, and every transaction is different. So there are no guarantees, but the letter of hardship is extremely vital to the success of a short-sale.

One example of a not-so-typical hardship:

I was helping a couple who lived an hour from their kids school (divorce situation-the kids remained in the same school system).  The bank approved this short-sale.


Next, we need to determine the current market value of the property. You need to sit down with a real estate agent who is familiar and EXPERIENCED in short-sales. There are obstacles that need to be explained to you, so you can be prepared.



Once we determine your property is indeed underwater. I work with experienced short sale attorneys and negotiators, and this program is of no cost to you.
