A closer look at short sales and foreclosures in Chicago

So just what is the difference between a foreclosure and a short sale? Well, a foreclosure is the process in which the property is taken possession of because of a mortgagor’s failure to keep up with the mortgage payments. A short sale on the other hand is the sale of real estate in which the net proceeds fail to meet the debt owed by the former owner. In a short sale, all lien holders agree to accept less than the amount owed, which is precisely why finding a short sale can save active home buyers money.
