Get Legal Advice About a Strategic Short Sale

By January 18, 2013

Follow me on:

Some sellers think they can easily do a strategic short sale, which is a short sale without a hardship.

And maybe they can. Some banks such as Bank of America routinely grant certain types of strategic short sales known as a Cooperative Short Sale. But not every bank will let a seller do a strategic short sale.

Just because a seller's home is worth less than the amount owed doesn't mean the bank will let the seller do a strategic short sale. Moreover, if the seller has recently bought a new home and the bank knows about that purchase, that's almost a sure-fired way to get a strategic short sale rejected. Before embarking on a strategic short sale, it's a good idea to get legal advice so nothing comes back to haunt.
