Short sales in Saint Petersburg. I have 2 mortgages on my home, can I do a short sale? Sorry, there is no yes or no answer to this short sale question. If you have more than one mortgage on your house or condo or a mortgage and an equity line it will get a little more time consuming and complicated. If both mortgages are with the same lender, you chances are better and the process is faster. In general (keep in mind, every short sale situation is different) if there is no money left from the sales proceeds to give to the lender that is in second place, the first lender has to make a deal with the second lender and this can go on for a while. If the first lender (they usually pay a few thousand) is not willing to pay some money to the second lender, the chances for a short sale just got less and less. Anyway, do not be discouraged, talk to your realtor and see what he or she has to say. Here in Saint Petersburg like everywhere else you can find Realtors that are trained in short sales and have designation like mine “Certified Short Sale Professional” These professionals will be able to give you a fair and evaluation of your short sale property before you have to make a decision.
