Lenders Paying Homeowners Significant Cash Incentives for Short Sales Instead of Foreclosure

If you have received a notice of default letter and/or are facing foreclosure, there’s good news. Lenders, including Chase and Bank of America, have started paying significant cash incentives to encourage sellers to do a short sale and avoid foreclosure.

In the past few months we have had homeowners receive checks from their lender at closing in amounts that range up to $35,000. And these large relocation incentives are not restricted to owners of high-end properties. The owner of a short sale property that recently sold for $164,000 received a check for $25,000. The checks are given for relocation assistance and can be used however the homeowner sees fit. There are no restrictions.

It’s important to note that the seller incentive is determined by the investor, so not every lender is paying relocation assistance incentives. However, if you facing a foreclosure, it’s a good time to find out if you qualify.

Sara B., Homeowner, Bothell, WA

When health and family issues forced me to sell my home, I didn’t know what to do. You were so patient about explaining the process and dealing with the complicated details. Not only did my house sell, but you were able to negotiate with the lenders so I didn’t owe a thing. I was able to put it all behind me and move on with my life. Thank you for taking such good care of me.
