The Bank may pay you CASH as part of the Short Sale!
Not only do some banks allow homeowners to preserve their credit score by working with them to sell their property, they are also allowing them to benefit from a short sale financially.
Most banks are offering relocation assistance to homeowners that participate in a short sale. In some cases, as much as $30,000.00. A bank that considers a short sale would typically dictate that the owner only gets to walk away from the house. However, some banks now see the financial benefits of working with a homeowner that is motivated to sell the property. A motivated homeowner can help the bank solicit a buyer that pays top dollar for the home by keeping the property clean and maintaining the landscaping during the selling process. Once a bank forecloses on a home, the bank has to clean, maintain, get the property market ready and find a buyer. This could lead to a significant financial loss for the bank. The resale value could be thousands less by then, compared to working with the struggling homeowners to sell the property.
A Short Sale will allow you to avoid foreclosure by selling your property.
If you owe more than what the value of the house might be worth, you can still sell for an amount less than what is necessary to pay off your mortgage in full and not be required to pay the remaining balance. It is more convenient and cost effective for your lender to consider working with you than to the sell the property after foreclosure.

In 2009, the Treasury Department introduced the HAFA program to provide a viable option for homeowners who are unable to keep their home through the existing Home Affordable Modifica- tion Program (HAMP).
HAFA provides incentives for a bank to work with a homeowner to do a short sale or a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure (DIL), to avoid foreclosing on a loan eligible for modification under the HAMP program.
