If you are a seller who has fallen behind on their FHA mortgage then you will qualify for a FHA (HAFA) Short Sale or Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure. This is much better than a Foreclosure or a Bancruptcy on your record.

If you are a buyer looking to purchase a Short Sale ask if the seller has a FHA  loan.


Because FHA is one of the few lenders who understand Short Sales and the process can take less time to close.


  • Seller must first attempt a Home Modification and either be denied, or reject offer being given.
  • FHA will approve sellers for Short Sale Consideration.
  • FHA will have the home appraised by an FHA appraiser
  • FHA will issue a Short Sale Agreement (SSA) at an approved List Price
  • FHA will give the seller 4 months to find a buyer and another 2 months to close
  • FHA will convert sellers to a DEED IN LIEU if not able to sell home.
