Short Sale in Tampa FL & Surrounding Areas: Work with a Tampa Short Sale REALTOR ® You Can Trust

If you are a struggling homeowner who is “underwater” on your mortgage—owing more on your loan that what your home is actually worth—you may want to consider the possibility of a short sale. A short sale is an agreement between you and your lender to sell your home at its fair market value, even if that amount is less than what you owe on your mortgage.

The basic steps of a short sale are as follows:

  • You sell your home for less than what you owe on your loan.
  • Your lender accepts that amount as payment on your loan.
  • You avoid foreclosure but do not receive any funds from the sale.
  • Your lender does not report a foreclosure to the credit bureaus.

When you are facing difficult possibilities like foreclosure and bankruptcy, short sale may be your best chance to sell your home and get a fresh start. Nathan Bangs & Associates is a full service Tampa real estate agent with special expertise in handing short sale transactions. As a certified distressed property expert, or CDPE, Nathan Bangs is the logical choice for you and the many other Tampa area homeowners and families needing compassionate, knowledgeable, and free assistance.

As your Tampa short sale realtor, Nathan Bangs & Associates can show you the ways a short sale may be able to:

  • Preserve your credit standing
  • Eliminate negative cash flow caused by rising mortgage payments
  • Help sell your home without you having to pay anything out-of-pocket
  • Possibly be eligible to buy another home much sooner than if you have a foreclosure on your record
  • Release you from your mortgage obligation
  • Relieve financial and emotional stress
  • Avoid foreclosure and/or bankruptcy

Like many other Tampa and St. Petersburg area homeowners, the real estate “crash” may have greatly reduced the value of your home and it will take decades before your home’s value catches up to what you owe. This can cause great hardship, especially if you must relocate for your job or if you have a growing family. Other common hardships that might lead to short sale include unemployment, divorce, medical bills, and adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) that have reset to a much higher monthly payment.

No matter what your reason for needing to sell your home fast, please contact the Nathan Bangs & Associates REALTORS ® for free short sale help. Our team of real estate professionals will be happy to assist you, whether you’re here in Tampa or in surrounding areas such as Westchase, Clearwater, St Petersburg, Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, or Lutz.
