Robert B. McArtor is Maryland's Luxury Home Short Sale Real Estate Agent
If you are barely holding on to your luxury property and its value has dropped tremendously, you may qualify for a short sale. A short sale takes place when a lender allows a borrower to sell their property short, for an amount lower than the remaining loan balance. In many cases, the lender then forgives the borrower of the remaining deficiency. Additionally, the lender pays all of the sellers' closing costs. A short sale is completely FREE to borrowers.
How to Qualify
A short sale is not everyone's best option. First, short sales are for borrowers who are upside down on their homes, meaning they owe more on the property than it is worth. Next, borrowers must prove to their lender that they can no longer afford the home due to a financial hardship. Some examples of hardships are:
? Job loss
? Vacant rental property
? Decreased income
? Death/illness in the family
? Job transfer
? Medical bills

Why would your lender agree to a short sale in Maryland?
On average, it costs a lender $58,000 to go through foreclosure proceedings on a property. The lender will attempt to sell the property at auction, which is not always successful. If the home doesn't sell, the lender is then stuck with a vacant property as well as the responsibility of maintaining the property. The home then must go through the bank REO system, which can be a very drawn out process. Rather than dealing not only with all of these additional costs, but also the additional headache, lenders often prefer that borrowers short sale their properties. In fact, even if the foreclosure process has already begun on your distressed luxury property, if you inform your lender that you are attempting to short sale they will often postpone the foreclosure process.
All of the information you provide us with regarding your current financial situation will be kept in the utmost confidentiality. We will not release any of this information to anyone outside of the short sale process. Additionally, if you prefer to include your attorney in the short sale transaction, it is welcomed.
