Foreclosure vs. Short Sales; Chart


 

     The Chart below is intended to give you some possible
     consequences between a Foreclosure and Short Sale.

 

ISSUE
FORECLOSURE
SUCCESSFUL SHORT SALE
 
Future Fannie Mae Loan...
Primary Residence
(effective May 21, 2008)
A homeowner who loses a home to Foreclosure is ineligible for a Fannie Mae backed mortgage for a period of 5 years
A homeowner who successfully negotiates and closes a short sale will be eligible for a Fannie Mae backed mortgage after only 2 years.
 
Future Fannie Mae Loan...
Non Primary
(effective May 21, 2008)
An investor who allows a property to go to Foreclosure is ineligible for a Fannie Mae backed investment mortgage for a period of 7 years
An investor who successfully negotiates and closes a short sale will be eligible for a Fannie Mae backed investment mortgage after only 2 years.
 
Future Loan With Any
Mortgage Company
On any future 1003 application a prospective borrower will have to answer YES to question C in Section Vlll of the standard 1003 that asks “Have you had property foreclosed upon or given title or deed in lieu thereof in the last 7 years?”  This will affect future rates.
There is no similar declaration or question regarding a short sale (at this time).
 
Credit Score
Score may be lowered anywhere from 250 to over 300 points. Typically will affect score for over 3 years
Only late payments on mortgage will show and after sale mortgage will be reported as paid or negotiated. This will lower the score as little as 50 points if all other payments are being made. A short sales’ affect can be as brief as 12 to 18 months.
 
Credit History
Foreclosure will remain as a public record on a person’s credit history for 10 years or more.
Short sale is not reported on a credit history. There is no specific reporting item for ‘short sale’. The loan is typically reported as ‘paid in full, settled’.
Security Clearances
Foreclosure is the most challenging issue against a security clearance outside of a conviction of a serious misdemeanor or felony. If a client has a foreclosure and is a police officer, in the military, in the CIA, Security, or any other position that requires a security clearance in almost all cases clearance will be revoked and position will be terminated.
A Short Sale on its own does not challenge most security clearances.
Current Employment
Employers have the right and are actively checking the credit regularly of all employees who are in sensitive positions. A foreclosure in many cases is ground for immediate reassignment or termination.
A short sale is not reported on a credit report and is therefore not a challenge to employment.
Future Employment
Many employers are requiring credit checks on all job applicants. A foreclosure is one of the most detrimental credit items an applicant can have and in most cases will challenge employment.
A short sale is not reported on a credit report and is therefore not a challenge to employment.
Deficiency Judgment
In 100% of foreclosures (except in those states where there is no deficiency) the bank has the right to pursue a deficiency judgment.
In some successful short sales it is possible to convince the lender to give up the right to pursuit a deficiency judgment against the homeowner.
Deficiency Judgment (amount)
In a foreclosure the home will have to go through an REO process if it does not sell at auction. In most cases this will result in a lower sales price and longer time to sale in a declining market. This will result in a higher possible deficiency judgment.
In a properly managed short sale the home is sold at a price that should be close to market value and in almost all cases will be better than an REO sale resulting in a lower deficiency.
Hurst Home Realty strongly advises you to seek the appropriate professional legal advice, tax advice and investigate the consequences of either a Foreclosure or Short Sale.
