IL – Many people don’t think they are eligible for a short sale because they have unpaid homeowner’s association dues. Don’t worry about paying them yourself. When you short sale your home the association dues will be paid by your lender.

A homeowner’s association is a very small percentage of the overall short sale value. Lenders know that a short sale will net them substantially more money than a foreclosure.

I had an example in the post below. I showed a house that received a $119,900 short sale offer. The lender rejected that offer. The home was foreclosed on and sold for $96,400. That means that lender lost $23,500 by rejecting that short sale offer.

The short sale lenders have ran all the numbers on a short sale versus foreclosure. They have high paid actuaries who go through everything.

If they have to foreclose, then they want to make sure they get the most amount of money possible. They know that they can recoup their money faster with a short sale versus foreclosing on a house and then reselling it.

Because of that they are willing to pay your delinquent homeowners association dues. In addition, the bank pays the real estate agent (they will have to hire a real estate agent when they sell the house.)

They also pay the title insurance and property taxes, because they must be paid in order to sell a house. They have to pay all those costs when they sell a bank owned property.

The Bottom Line: All of the costs are borne by the bank in a short sale. You pay nothing.
