Hello, I’m Matt Fetick with SoldbyShortSale.com. Pennsylvania and Delaware’s leading short sale specialists. I am excited to tell you today that we are still finding many lenders that are helping homeowners relocate and do short sales on their home. There was some concern at the end of 2012 as the market conditions have started to change. Well I can happily report to you that lenders are getting more forthright with their short sales and reducing the time it takes and they’re really working with us to help homeowners make a transition. You know, we are seeing more and more homeowners that are getting relocation assistance to make a move out of their home. That’s right, if you currently own your home and you need to short sale, and you have to make a move, as long as you maintain the home and still occupy it; we are seeing lenders give somewhere $3,000 and $5,000 for successfully completing a short sale. That money is given to you at closing so you can help fund your relocation expenses.

So we kind of thought that maybe that would go away when some of the larger lenders do away with the HAFA program, the making homes affordable act. Instead, we are actually seeing more lenders doing relocation assistance when the homeowner chooses to stay in the home, maintain it and cooperate with the short sale. If you’re thinking about doing a short sale and would like more information, please give me a call. We would love to talk to you and see whether a short sale might be one of the best options for you.
