Gainesville Short Sales – Choosing a Qualified Gainesville Short Sale Agent Short Sales are becoming a more and more popular alternative to foreclosure for homeowners, However many people are unfamiliar with what a short sale actually is.

A short sale is when you sell your home, and the bank accepts an offer that is below the amount that is owed on your mortgage. For example: if you still owe the bank $200,000.00 on your house, and the bank accepts an offer on your house for only $100,000.00. The bank will end up forgiving the other $100,000.00 on your house.

You many ask yourself why the bank would do that, and the answer to that question is that the bank is not in the business of owning homes.  On the bank’s side of things, they look at a short sale as an option for them to save additional legal fees, that will run them $15,000.00 to $30,000.00 and maybe even more. Also the bank does not want to own the house; they are not in the business of buying and selling homes.
