You may even qualify for a cash incentive*** from your Lender to do a SoliVita Short Sale.
***These programs are not available to all Sellers and the incentives may vary from State to State.
Here are the Florida Short Sale Incentive Programs that I am aware of:
HAFA. Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative. Lender will pay the Seller $3,000 as a Relocation Assistance. Only for primary residences.
FHA PFS. HUD Pre-Foreclosure Sale. Seller can receive $1,000 for relocation assistance. Just yesterday I received FHA PFS approval increasing the seller incentive to $4,000!! Only for primary residences.
Chase Short Sale Incentive Program for select Borrowers offering them up to $35,000 to do a short sale.
Bank of America Co-operative Short Sale. From $3,000 to $20,000 Short Sale Incentive.
Citi Bank, Wells Fargo and Ocwen also have programs available for select home owners. Amounts vary from $3,000 to $35,000. Most are in the $5,000 range.
Folks if you are behind on your SoliVita mortgage payments be sure to open any and all mail you receive from your lender. It could very well be an offer to Short Sale your property. These offers are usually time sensitive and require immediate action on your part.
But why would my Lender pay me to do a SoliVita Short Sale? That’s a good question. For one, it less expensive, for them, for you to cooperate during the Short Sale process and maintain the property than it is for the Lender to foreclose and get an abandoned property back. Also, the Lender does not want you to continue living in the property for free. They would rather pay you to do a Short Sale now than have you live there for another year or so while deciding what to do. The incentive gets you to take action.
Whatever their reason is..…it’s a good opportunity for you. Any questions?
Are you under water on your Florida mortgage?
