FHA Short Sales and HUD Pre-Foreclosure Sale Program – How to Short Sell Your Murfreesboro House if You Have an FHA Insured Mortgage Loan
Many financially distressed homeowners who are facing foreclosure and considering a short sale will be affected by the New FHA Short Sale and HUD Pre-Foreclosure Sale Program Guidelines. One of the biggest changes is that mortgage servicers are no longer going to be able to postpone scheduled foreclosure sales when the Borrower has an FHA insured mortgage loan unless they already have their house under contract to sell to a buyer.
Some background information on the FHA and their short sale program…
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) of the department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) insures mortgage loans to qualified borrowers. FHA aims to maintain a stabilized housing market even during economic crisis by providing access to mortgage credit. However, they have seen deep financial troubles and at the expense of taxpayers, the government makes an effort to keep the hopes of home buyers high.
Several of the loans offered by FHA to subprime borrowers have met bad fate. It is believed that FHA insures approximately 30% of the mortgage loans and a collapse in their functioning will have a considerable impact on the housing market. Many of the FHA insured loans have also undergone foreclosure.
An FHA insured mortgage loan can benefit from a short sale program.
What is a Short Sale Program?
For an FHA insured mortgage loan, a HUD Pre-Foreclosure Sale Program (HUD PFS Program) can be adopted. Since FHA is a part of the HUD department, alleviating the pressure of foreclosure becomes easy. With a HUD PFS program, the financial distress upon the homeowner can be mitigated.
Under a short sale or pre-foreclosure program, the borrower is permitted by the lender to sell off the property at a rate lower than the market value thus preventing a foreclosure. Short sale is a privilege that helps protect the borrower from being shelter less and from developing a dent in the credit history. A foreclosure indicates that the lender has undertaken a legal action against a borrower and is forcibly selling off the property, leaving a mark of inability to make mortgage payments in the credit history of the borrower.
Several home owners are not aware of their status: Do we qualify for a HUD Pre-Foreclosure Sale Program?
