"I recently purchased another home and tried to sell my former home. It isn’t selling and I can’t afford to make both payments. The home won’t rent for even 1/2 of the mortgage payment.
An agent told me the house is worth about $50K under the mortgage amount. Is it realistic for me to try the short sale? The only hardship created was when I decided to move to a larger home for family. Dan."

Here was our answer to Dan’s Question.
Dan, I think you can short sale your house. Do you have a legitimate hardship?
I know you said you needed a larger house. However, if you also moved for a job transfer, then most lenders would consider that a legitimate hardship.
A hardship is not black and white. Some lenders would consider your situation a hardship. More often than not they will approve the short sale.
Others would not and won’t work with you on a short sale. In addition, the lender may not work with you until you have missed a payment or two.
Whether or not you miss a payment is your decision. You should weigh your options and decide whether or not you can live with the resulting credit damage.
Many lenders will work with you on a short sale even before you have missed a payment. If you were working with us, then we would help you. But, we would have the expectation that it would be a 6-12 month process.
Make sure that you work with a competent short sale agent. Look for someone that is a short sale expert. Ask them how many short sales they have sold.
Ask them if they have worked with your lender in the past. Then you will be able to judge whether they are qualified to help you.

Chris B Johnson, Prudential Califonia Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
