PRLog - Aug. 22, 2011 - LAS VEGAS -- The property on El Presidio was in default and the homeowner was facing Foreclosure in Nevada. After many negotiations with the bank with no solutions, the home owners contacted The Ballen Group to negotiate a Las Vegas short sale on their behalf. The process was not easy, but with the strong negotiating powers, problem solving and a comprehensive marketing process, Ballen achieved the difficult approval to close the home. As with all Las Vegas short sale approvals, there must be a ready & willing buyer to purchase the home at what the bank considers “fair market value” based on their appraisers values. The seller opted to short sale their home rather than allow a Las Vegas Foreclosure in hopes of having a better credit score and the ability to purchase Las Vegas Real Estate again in approximately 2 years. The great news here is that the entire Nevada Short sale Process only took a total of 48 days to close - Start to Finish.
The specific Short Sale Facts in this case are as follows. There was one Lien Holder – Wachovia. The Original List price was $249,900. The Sales Price was $249,900 with $7,430 in closing costs with a conventional loan. The deficiency was waived AND the seller received $3000 cash back. The first offer accepted was by the buyer who purchased the property. It took a total of 37 days to approve and 48 days total from list date to close date.
Sometimes, to avoid going through the costs of foreclosure, a bank will sanction a short sale by allowing a Buyer to purchase the home for less than the mortgage balance while the home is in pre-foreclosure stage. Pre-foreclosure state is the first of the three stages of foreclosures.
