SHORT/COMPROMISE SALE:
 
A Short Sale/Compromise Sale is an option for homeowners who find the market value of theirhome is less than the amount owed. The mortgage company will review compromise saleoffers and if the sale is approved by the lender and the VA will pay the difference between thenet proceeds of the sale and the amount owed to the mortgage company if the loan isguaranteed by the VA. Homeowners considering the short/compromise sale option shouldcontact their mortgage company before attempting to sell the home to discuss the criterianecessary to use this option.Example: A Short Sale can be considered for homeowners who have lost the ability to maintainmortgage payments and attempted, unsuccessfully, to sell the house at full price. Homeownerswith VA guaranteed loans can visitwww.vba.va.gov/ro/south/spete/rlc/ and enter CompromiseSale in the search field for more information on this option.
PROS
A Short/Compromise Sale can be beneficial for situations in which the homeowner isfacing foreclosure and needs to sell a home that is undervalued.
In most cases the homeowner is released from liability through the Short/Comprise Saleprocess if the loan is guaranteed by the VA. If the loan is conventional a lender must agreein writing to waive the collection of any deficiency. Homeowners with conventionalmortgages should request the waiver prior to completion of the short /compromise sale.
CONS
On VA guaranteed loans, this option can affect the homeowner’s ability to use the VAentitlement for future home purchases.
On Non-VA guaranteed loans, the lender has the option of establishing a debt for theamount of the deficiency against a homeowner.
DEED IN LIEU OF FORECLOSURE:
 
This option addresses borrowers who have lost the ability to maintain their mortgage and haveattempted to resolve the delinquency and found that the other foreclosure avoidance options arenot feasible. Deed in lieu of foreclosure involves the voluntary transfer of the property from theborrower to the mortgage company in an effort to avoid foreclosure.Example: When a borrower is forced to leave the area due to unforeseen circumstances andcan not maintain two households. The first option would be to attempt a full-priced sale. If afull-price is not possible the homeowner should attempt a short/compromise sale. If ashort/compromise sale is not an option then the homeowner can request that the mortgagecompany consider a Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure.
PROS
In most cases the lenders acceptance of the deed in lieu of foreclosure releases thehomeowner of liability.
CONS
This option can effect the homeowners ability to use the VA entitlement for future homepurchases.
The property cannot have any active liens.
