The Sixth Common Ventura County Short Sale Misconception: Banks Accept Short Sales Because Foreclosure Auctions Bring Much Less Money.

Ventura County CA – I'm writing a series in response to a number of big misconceptions I saw on a personal finance website online.

I don't know if the personal finance write either didn't know about short sales and was pretending to be an expert, or they were being fed bad information.

It could have been the latter because there is so much incorrect information about short sales being discussed as though it is fact.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

The article states that banks accept short sales because foreclosure auctions bring much less money. Most people that read that think that foreclosure auctions usually end horribly for the banks.
After all, not everyone can bid at the foreclosure auctions. Most people hear about how people make a lot of money buying properties at the foreclosure auction.

They read that and think that the properties sell at the foreclosure auction for a big discount. But, that isn't true. And that's why this statement isn't correct.

Yes, banks do prefer a short sale over a foreclosure. And the reason they do is because the home usually sells for more money as a short sale. But, they are not forced to sell the home for a big discount at the foreclosure auctions.

Most foreclosure auctions give them the right to bid all the way up to the amount they are owed. It doesn't cost them anything to bid all the way up to the amount they are owed. They loaned the money and that is their bid.

All they have to pay are the court fees to conduct the sale and any taxes on the sale. That is why most properties that are foreclosed on are bought by the banks. They put them on the open market.
The goal is to sell the foreclosed property for as much money as possible. This is why most upside down homes sell to the bank at the foreclosure auction. Thinking about a short sale?
