Hello everyone Matt Fetick here with Sold By Short Sale, Philadelphia’s leading short sale specialist, thank you so much for joining me today.

If you find my blog to be helpful today please don’t hesitate to give me a call or stop by my website for even more information on the short sale process.

For my blog topic today I wanted to discuss the possibility of being paid to do a short sale on your property by your lender. Programs like this are becoming more and more popular and it is important to make sure we are getting you the best possible outcome when selling your home. The most commonly used program is the government sponsored HAFA short sale option that will pay you up to three thousand dollars to aid in relocation. Another great aspect of a HAFA short sale is that the selling price will be accepted by your lender as payment in full no matter what. For those that do not meet HAFA guidelines there are some other options for receiving some type of relocation assistance. Because your bank is in the business of lending money, and not owning residential property, they may pay you to complete a short sale on your home. I have seen homeowners receive anywhere between five thousand and ten thousand dollars from their bank after a short sale and you could be next. By maintaining your home, keeping the utilities on, mowing the lawn, etc, you can save your lender time and money which they will ultimately reimburse you for. If you have questions about your current mortgage please visit my website or contact me today so we can discuss your options. If you live in the Philadelphia area and are underwater on your mortgage we want to help you get a new start today. Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
