GMAC / Homecomings Financial Real Estate Short Sale?

You’ve probably heard the term “short sale” in connection with real estate buying, especially in light of the many foreclosure deals plaguing the real estate industry. You’ve also probably seen a few “short sale” signs on a few homes and wondered what that was all about.

In a nutshell, the “short sale” term refers to a transaction made between a homeowner and a lender (either a bank or a lending institution) that usually involves the following conditions: (1) the homeowner is in default of his mortgage payments, probably close to being foreclosed and has not yet filed for bankruptcy, as a result of financial hardships; and (2) the lender is willing to accept taking a small financial loss and forgives the debt owed.

Some consequences of a short sale leads to the seller/homeowner walking away without getting any money from the sale, which could mean they may have trouble finding a new place to live. The transaction may also affect a person’s credit rating but not so much as it would in a foreclosure. However, participating in a short sale transaction is less painful for the homeowner because he doesn’t need to get evicted and he leaves his home with his dignity and financial status relatively intact.

  1. Depends who you ask, we are not trying to mislead anyone but we do know just about everything there is to know related to real estate short sales. I have been licensed since 1972 in the state of California. Many of those years I have worked in the loss mitigation departments of several different banks including GMAC & Homecomings Financial. I still maintain many relationships with GMAC & Homecomings and know exactly what is needed and who needs to be contacted to get short sale approved.

    When it comes to getting a short sale approved I can tell you that if it’s a GMAC Homecomings serviced loan it’s going to be a lot easier to get an answer. We may not always be able to get an approval but we will know quickly if we can get the deal approved or not. The most common problem with a short sale is the owner of the note. There are going to be lien holder’s that will never agree to a short sale and it doesn’t matter who is servicing the loan, that’s just the way it is.

    With the contacts we have at GMAC & Homecomings we will be able to get a fairly quick answer. It’s like having a toll free number to god for anyone who has experience dealing with short sales!  In this mess of a short sale market that can be priceless. I wouldn’t say the same thing about any other bank because we don’t have that kind of relationship in place. Not to say we haven’t had success, we have had a lot of success with various banks and have completed numerous short sales but it’s not easy. I am not sure if you are in the business or a homeowner but anyone who has had to deal with a short sale knows this can be a painfully long and dragged out process.

    Are we experts? In my opinion, knowing the number of other agents trying to do short sales we are far superior, more competent and better than 95% of all the other agents handling short sales.

  5. Good informative post indeed but I can still feel air of negativity here and I am not sure for how long it continues like that and all I hope for is that sooner rather than later we all come out of the economic crunch.
