Short sale... Forclosure... Rehab
What does this mean?!
A short sale is a transaction in which the lender, or lenders, agree to accept less than the mortgage amount owed by the current homeowner. In some cases, the difference is forgiven by the lender, and in others the homeowner must make arrangements with the lender to settle the remainder of the debt.
Foreclosure is a legal process in which a lender attempts to recover the balance of a loan from a borrower who has stopped making payments to the lender by forcing the sale of the asset used as the collateral for the loan.
A real estate rehab is when investors purchase a property, complete renovations and then sell it for a profit. These projects can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the amount of work that needs to be done.
