Rental Property Short Sale in Bainbridge

Real Estate Investor Losing Money on Rental Property

Investor Jonathan’s five bedroom rental property on Bainbridge Island was beautifully built and maintained, but he was losing $30,000 a year on the investment. There was no way that he could continue to sustain that kind of loss of income. He knew he needed to sell. But with two mortgages seriously underwater, he also knew he needed help.

Free Attorney Consultation Results in Short Sale

Washington Property Solutions provided Jonathan with a free real estate attorney consultation so he could determine the best course of action for his situation. For Jonathan, a short sale was the answer.

Chase and Select Portfolio Forgive $290,700 in Mortgage Debt

Jonathan owed over $700,000 on the home. He had two mortgages, a first mortgage with Select Portfolio Servicing for $631,200 and a second mortgage with Chase for $80,000. We were able to negotiate with both parties to approve a short sale. Select Portfolio agreed to accept $412,000, and Chase agreed to accept $8,500 from the short sale as full settlement of Jonathan’s debt. He was permanently released from ever having to pay the $290,700 shortfall.
