The property was originally listed for $99,000 and sold for $94,000 where the investor purchaser paid cash and received no closing cost incentive from the seller or Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in this short sale. The Seller received an approval letter under FHA's Preforeclosure Program with no deficiency language, meaning they do not have to repay the remaining balance of the loan, saving the homeowners over $89,900 or 49% off the original purchase price.
