Will my neighbors find out that I am short selling my house?

Moorpark, Ventura County CA – Many of the people we help are concerned that their neighbors will find out about the short sale. No one wants their dirty laundry put out for the entire neighborhood to see.

Here is what we do when a customer has a concern with that. First, we will make sure that everything your neighbors see does not say “short sale” on it. The sign will look like all the other for sale signs in town.
Your neighbors will simply think that you are selling your house. The for sale sign will not say “foreclosure” on it. Neither will any real estate website say “short sale” or “foreclosure” on it.

We won’t discuss it with the neighbors or tell them what is happening. After all, your privacy is important to us. We know this because of our work with other families facing financial difficulty.
With a short sale, you will be able to get your life back on track. Many people are relieved after the process is complete. They no longer have to live their life in uncertainty.

They can stop thinking about, “When is the sheriff going to come and kick me out”, or “Will I ever be able to buy another home.” They can stop worrying about how to pay back the money for their upside down house.”

Fortunately all of those are taken care of with a short sale. After a short sale you are eligible to buy another home in as little as 2 years. In addition, in most cases all of the upside down debt will be wiped out.
The lenders know people do not short sale unless they are having financial problems. They are willing to forgive the debt because a short sale reduces their losses.

The short sale process usually takes 3-6 months to complete. We will update you on when you need to move. Once we let you know that the short sale has been approved, you will have about 30-45 days to move to a new place.

If you have questions about the short sale process, then please send me an e-mail at I will contact you for a free consultation.

When we talk, I will explain how the process works in detail. If you prefer, then you can call me at 805-208-0823.
