Short Sale – Can I Sell My House If It’s A Fixer Upper?

Yes! It doesn’t matter how much you owe. It doesn’t matter what shape it’s in. You can have a leaky roof, old windows, shoddy electrical system and dogs could have chewed up all the door frames.

If the market values have plummeted and you owe more than the house is worth and you’re behind on payments, you should look into doing a short sale.

In a short sale the lender accepts an amount short of the payoff and lets the house sell for whatever the market will pay. If the house is a fixer upper it reduces the value of the house, but since the bank will let it go for the reduced price the house will still sell. In a short sale the lender lets the house sell based on the current value, not based on how much is owed.

If the house sells for less than owed, the difference is called a “shortage” or a “deficiency”. In most cases, but not all, the lender will forgive the deficiency. It is vital that the seller engage the services of a professional Realtor who has a proven track record of successfully negotiating and closing dozens of short sales. A competent and caring Realtor is more likely to obtain a full forgiveness of the deficiency.
