Ask the Short Sale Expert: Short Sale with Two Mortgages

Short Sale Myth: I have a second mortgage so I can’t do a short sale.

Short Sale Fact: We have successfully closed hundreds of short sales that have both first and second mortgages.

It’s true that having two mortgages does make a short sale more complex. Negotiating a short sale with one lender is a long and detailed process. That process is made even more complicated when there are two mortgages. Both lenders need to agree to the terms of the sale. As a result, negotiating with two lenders essentially doubles the work and time needed to make sure the sale is approved.

Despite the extra hurdles, we have an excellent track record of getting clients with two mortgages 100% of their debts forgiven. Here are a few examples of recent short sales we have successfully closed that involve clients with two home mortgages, totaling $1.9 Million mortgage debt forgiven and $16,000 HAFA cash relocation incentives.
