Yes, you can Short Sale and buy another home."][/caption]

Bellevue WA – We get this question a lot from people. “I am upside down and need to move. I would like to buy another home. Can I do that?” they ask us. Today they can. FHA (the Federal Housing Administration) has a new program that enables you to short sale your existing home and buy a new home at today’s reduced prices. Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here. The home you purchase would have to meet FHA’s standard lending guidelines. FHA is a great mortgage program.

In fact, more people buying a home in today’s market are getting an FHA loan. Here is what you would need to do to participate in the program:

1. Determine if you qualify to participate in the program. 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 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.


2. Continue making your mortgage payments each month.


3. Talk to a Mortgage Professional and fill out FHA’s Short Sale and Buy Application.


4. Get pre-approved for your next home loan.


5. Put your home on the market with a licensed short sale realtor.


6. Once the short sale is approved, then you can start looking at other homes.


7. Close on selling your home and on purchasing the new property.
