how can i sell my house fast on short sale?
My mother and I bought the house together for $ 105K in 2007. And now we want to get out of the mortgage because we can’t afford the payment anymore. Though we are current, we still filed for loan modification. But from reading many other posts/comments online, it doesn’t sound like we would get approved for loan modification. I think it’s just not right! But it doesn’t matter because we both are going to move out of this house. We put up for short sale.
But the question is HOW to sell it fast on short sale? The market isn’t all that great, and my house needs some major repairs. We do not have the money for repairs. None at all. We barely have enough money to pay all of our bills including the mortgage. We have considered renting the house but from all the horror stories we heard about tenants damaging the house, we won’t do it! It costs way too much money and it’s a lot of responsibilities.
Remember this again: We do not have the money. That’s why we wish to speed up selling the house, but how is it possible? And if we do move to an apartment (we will live on our own not together anymore), and the house probably will go into foreclosure if it doesn’t short sell in time.
Please help…please advise. Thank you so much.
