Avoid Foreclosure


We specialize in helping homeowners stop foreclosure with a short sale option. We understand that there are many reasons why homeowners sometimes are unable to pay their mortgages and every situation is unique.

At Short Sale Mitigation, LLC we are different. We work ALONG SIDE list agent, and are hired by homeowners. We provide legal representation for all homeowners struggling with a short sale and our primary focus is short sale negotiation. We don't sell property or market property. We mitigate short sales so our primary focus is YOU. We provide step by step direction throughout the process for Realtors and homeowners.

Short sales can be stressful and a time-consuming process. But in many cases they will be necessary in order to get you out from under your mortgage debt, especially with property values declining like they are today. By doing a short sale, you will be able to take a large bite out of the money you owe to your mortgage company, so that you are no longer liable for the entire amount.

In order to start the short sale process, there are several documents that are needed from you (see below). First off is a third party authorization. This form is so that a third party can speak to the bank on your behalf. This will be included with the rest of the short sale package, or it can be sent over ahead of time. In cases where your lender requires your property to be listed in order for them to accept a short sale, then we can refer you to many of our top-producing, local agents that we have worked many successful short sales with.

Typical Short Sale Requirements (to be collected from the homeowner)

  • Hardship letter – which states what happened to cause you to fall behind, when it happened, and what you’re doing to fix the situation
  • Financial worksheet – a breakdown of all your income and expenses
  • Your last month of pay stubs or a recent profit and loss statement if self-employed. If you can’t provide either of those then you’ll need a signed and dated explanation of why.
  • Your last two months of bank statements
  • Your last two years of tax returns (the first two pages only)
  • Purchase and Sales Agreement and a listing agreement

We are happy to speak to you about your home today!!
