Short Sale Checklist

Short Sale Checklist

Short Sale Checklist

One of the pre-requisites for short sales to be considered by your lender is having a proper short sale package. This is submitted, along with the accepted contract, to the lender. It is imperative that the short sale package be 100% complete or it will significantly delay the whole process. Please take a moment to review some of the documentation that will be needed. Additionally, your home will need to be as marketable as possible. You will be competing against many other desirable properties so sprucing up your home and keeping it clean is imperative.

Items necessary for the short sale package:

  • Completed Financial Worksheet (will be provided)
  • A letter explaining your hardship and need to conduct a short sale in detail
  • Any supporting documentation of your hardship
  • Copies of your 2 most recent pay stubs (if employed)
  • Copies of your last 3 month’s bank statements (if you are self-employed, please include both business and personal statements)
  • Last 2 years W-2’s
  • Last 2 years Tax Returns
  • Lease agreement (if you are including rental income in your monthly budget)
  • Short Sale listing agreement (if you have listed the property for sale)
