Mara & Mara

Helpful Legal Team Provides Assistance for Short Sales in Florida

Avoid foreclosure and extreme debt with a short sale

For people who struggle to make their mortgage payments and fear a foreclosure is imminent, there is another option. At Mara & Mara, Attorneys at Law, we help people through the short sale process, which allows you to sell your property at a fair market value to alleviate your debt. The process may be rather harrowing, but our attorneys excel at providing personal attention to keep you comfortable throughout your legal journey. If you are located in Ormond Beach, Daytona Beach, or any of the surrounding areas, let us take care of you and your needs today.

Short sales are an option for those struggling with mortgage debt

Many homeowners who find themselves in extreme mortgage debt owe more on their mortgage than their house is actually worth. For some of these people, bankruptcy is not an option, so they turn to short sales. In a short sale, the lender allows the homeowner to sell the property at the current market value, and then the lender releases the lien on the house. If you owe $200,000 on your house, but the market value of the house is only $150,000, the lender allows you sell your property for the smaller amount.  Our attorneys then seek a complete release from any remaining mortgage debt.

A common misconception is that it is impossible to gain approval for short sales. Work with a lawyer and you have a much greater chance of an approval of your short sale along with elimination of any remaining mortgage debt.

Our Ormond Beach lawyers help you achieve the benefits of a short sale

At Mara & Mara, we want to help you save money and stay secure for your future. Work with an attorney to achieve results such as:

  • Avoiding the stigma of foreclosure. Foreclosure is a messy and embarrassing process, and often comes with a social stigma. You may be able to completely avoid this with a short sale.
  • No more mortgage payments. We enable you to save money and stop creditor harassment.
  • Eligibility to possibly buy a new home within two years. Without the short sale process, you would typically have to wait five to seven years.
