Federal Way, WA Condo Owner Has $73,000 in Mortgage Debt Totally Forgiven with Short Sale

Green Tree Forgives All Debt; Condo Association Debt Also Eliminated.

Condo Short Sale in Federal Way

Job Relocation Forces Homeowner To Sell

Like a number of people, Ashley was underwater on her condo mortgage, owing more than her home was worth. If a homeowner doesn’t need to sell, and can afford to keep making their payments, that doesn’t present a problem. But when Ashley had to relocate for her work, she didn’t have an option – she needed to sell her condo.

Short Sale Avoids Foreclosure on Underwater Condo

Ashley was making a new start in a new city, and she wanted to avoid foreclosure. We outlined the benefits of a short sale over foreclosure, including the fact that the waiting period to qualify to buy a new home in the future may be shorter if you opt for a short sale. We also provided Ashley with a free real estate attorney consultation so she could evaluate all her options. Given her job relocation and underwater mortgage, she decided to proceed with a short sale.

Green Tree Forgives $73,000 of Mortgage Debt

Ashley owed $148,000 on her mortgage with Green Tree Servicing. We were able to negotiate with Green Tree to approve a short sale and accept the $75,000 in proceeds from the sale as full satisfaction of her debt. They permanently waived her of ever having to repay the $73,000 shortfall. Ashley paid nothing out-of-pocket.

$3,500 Homeowners Association Debt Forgiven

Ashley had also fallen behind on her Homeowners Association (HOA) fees. She owed the association $3,500, and the HOA had placed a lien on her property. We were able to negotiate with the HOA, and they agreed to wipe out the entire outstanding balance and remove the lien.
