Underwater Homeowners Face Foreclosure

Jeff and Robbi W. had resigned themselves to the fact that they were destined for foreclosure. They couldn’t afford their home mortgage payments, and they owed more on their home that it was worth. Jeff and Robbi had made several attempts at talking to their lender about a home loan modification, but were denied. They even consulted with an attorney about a short sale, but were told they didn’t qualify. When a job relocation caused them to move out of state, Jeff figured that foreclosure was inevitable. Then a friend suggested that they talk to Washington Property Solutions.

Short Sale Allows Jeff and Robbi to Avoid Foreclosure

Initially Jeff was wary. He was worried that the process would cost them more time, money and frustration. And he worried how he would handle all the details from out of state. Finally Jeff decided it was worth a last-ditch effort to get the best possible outcome for letting go of their home.

The initial phone call brought good news. Contrary to the advice they had received before, Jeff and Robbi DID qualify for a short sale. And a short sale had a number of benefits over foreclosure. Washington Property Solutions assured the couple that they would manage the entire process: the application, legal concerns, sale of the home, and final paperwork. The couple decided to move forward. Washington Property Solutions was able to halt the foreclosure, find a buyer and get a short sale approved by their lender. The entire process from the first phone call to final closing took just a few months.

Nationstar Forgives $53,300 in Home Mortgage Debt

After just six days on the market, Washington Property Solutions had a buyer. They then were able to successfully negotiate a short sale with Nationstar, the couple’s lender. In addition, Washington Property Solutions was able to negotiate forgiveness of the $53,300 balance the couple owed on their home mortgage. The debt was permanently forgiven, so the couple will never have to worry about paying the difference. Jeff and Robbi paid nothing out of pocket to sell their home.

Jeff and Robbi Receive $3,000 Cash Incentive for Short Sale

There was more good news. By opting for a short sale instead of foreclosure, Jeff and Robbi qualified for $3,000 in relocation assistance. The money could be spent however they liked. With the short sale of their house completed, it was a great down payment on their fresh new start.
