What is a Short Sale?
If you're interested in moving on from your property and getting a fresh start, selling your home might be the best option for you. You have the right to sell the property to someone else up until the foreclosure sale date. If the potential buyer's offer is not sufficient to pay off your loan, we may agree to accept less than the total amount due under certain conditions. This situation is commonly called a "short sale".

How do short sales work?


1. List the property with a real estate agent
Bayview can help you locate an agent in your neighborhood. The agent will advertise and show the property like any other, though they may promote it as a short sale to enhance it's visibility.

2. Bayview works directly with the real estate agent
The short sale team will work with agent to quickly evaluate offers and generate sales contracts.

3. For the seller, the process starts like a typical home sale
The home owner contracts a real estate agent to list and advertise the property. If qualified offers are made at a price lower than the mortgage value, the offers are forwarded to Bayview. Bayview then negotiates with the buyer's agent to arrive at a price acceptable to Bayview and the mortgage investor. At the closing, the property is deeded to the buyer and the mortgage is released.
