An interesting statistic to make note of is the differential in price of approximately 10% between short sale and foreclosure homes. That means a lender loses an additional 10% off the value of the home by foreclosing! Proof positive that short sales benefit all involved. A short sale will keep a foreclosure off the homeowner’s record, and save the lenders tremendous amounts of money. They will also benefit the homeowner in the case of a deficiency judgment, where they may be responsible for paying the lender for losses. Nobody wins in a foreclosure.

The differential between a traditional sale, and a distress sale remains quite high at around 30%. Generally speaking, occupied homes, with an owner caring for it will show much better to a potential buyer.  They just have a much cleaner ‘feel’, which is noticeable to the buyer right away!
