Bellevue Short Sales: Can I Short Sale My Upside Down Home?

Bellevue WA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Brent.

Here is Brent's Question.

"If we are not behind on our mortgage but can't sell our home through a normal sale because we don't have any equity, can we still qualify for a short sale?

We would like to sell this property and get another property where we are not upside down. Thank you!” asked Brent.

Here was our answer. Brent, there is actually a federal short sale program that encourages what you would like to do. It is called the FHA 4155 loan program.

It allows a person that is short selling their house to buy another one right away. However, there are a few caveats.

We have been told that you will need the following. (Guidelines can change at any time, so make sure you check them with a Mortgage Professional familiar with the program.)

A. A 640 FICO credit score or better.

B. You must be current on all installment payments and on your mortgage.

C. No bankruptcy or foreclosure on your credit in the last 7 years.

D. The home you are purchasing must be inferior to the one you are selling. I don’t know the exact guidelines, but I think it means it is a smaller home, or it has less bedrooms or a lower price.

E. You will need the 3.5% down payment for the new purchase.

The biggest hurdle will be getting your current lender to approve the short sale. Most lenders will approve a short sale. It just takes time and a little patience.

But, it is a great opportunity to move on from your upside down property and start building equity elsewhere.
