Short sales in Malibu are less and less prolific these days. During the market crash and recovery, a considerable percentage of the real estate market were short sales. But a short sale is still a viable option if you're still under-water. There are many terms for a short sale, for example "short pay", "distressed short sale" or "pre-foreclosure" houses or homes. You may even be unsure if you need to short sale or wash sale, which is breaking even after the sale. So if you are asking 'How do I short sell my house', you have come to the right place. We are Short Sale Agents/Experts, and we can help you negotiate a lower sale amount than you owe, negotiate with your mortgage bank(s), and sell that upside-down property.
We know how to read current Malibu house listings and Malibu real estate listings to determine the best price to offer your mortgage lender to ensure a short sale approval. Most banks and lenders do not want to foreclose because a real estate foreclosure sale can cost them up to $50,000 and more! Per property! When a bank forecloses, the home becomes bank-owned, or real estate owned, also known as a foreclosure. At that point the house is the responsibility of the bank, which means the bank is responsible for upkeep, interior and exterior damage, vandalism, utilities, and anything else that can cost the bank money or time. Not to mention there are many Malibu home listings for the bank to compete with when attempting a foreclosure sale.
