FAQ: Short Sales


What is a foreclosure?

A foreclosure occurs when the bank reposes the property from the home owner due to non-payment of the mortgage.

What is a loan modification?

A loan modification is a change in one or more of the terms of a mortgagor’s loan, allows the loan to be reinstated and results in a payment the mortgagor can afford.
