A short sale, simply stated, occurs when a home is sold for less than what is owned on it. Our knowledge, experience, professionalism, hard work, and pure doggedness have resulted in successfully closing over 500 short sales so far.
Here are a few things you should know about how to handle short sales:
- We will list your home for FREE. You pay NO COMMISSION.
- We handle all the negotiations with your lender(s).
- We offer FREE assistance in helping you find a place to live that is willing to lease to those with a short sale credit history.
Recently, some lenders are offering new programs that streamline the short sale process and add cash incentives to those who short sale their home to help them relocate or possible even purchase another home. Please note that this may only pertain to select lenders or programs and you must be able to qualify for a new loan. There are programs available that include some or all of the following features:
- Less financial documentation required
- No deficiency judgment on the mortgage
- No promissory note
- Minimal credit score damage
- $3000 or MORE cash incentive paid at closing

We used Mihara and Associates for both buying and selling a house. They are highly professional and very knowledgeable of the Tampa Bay real estate market. They are great to work with. They answered all of our questions. They helped us price our home right so that it sold quickly and helped us find the home we wanted in a sellers market. We would go back to them again the next time we need to sell or buy a house and would highly recommend them to anyone else who needs to sell or buy a house.
