I have a listing I'm contemplating between keeping and taking off the market.

One problem is, we had to reduce the price several times due to the amount if work it needs, and we're wondering if the bank will find it beneficial to accept a short sale over foreclosure, as it's an FHA loan with PMI. Does the bank still get the payout for the insured loan if the short sale is approved?

Another problem is the bank offered a loan modification to bring the mortgage up to date, but given her significant other lost his job and was quit claimed, an offer of only 200 less per month still cannot be justified with her income as she is going to fall behind again soon if she were to accept it. She is also making much less now, so thousands of dollars per month lost and only a 200 dollar payment reduction makes no sense.

The house also has flood damage and needs a lot of repairs that she cannot afford, so if thru don't approve the short sale she is going to let it foreclose.

Does the bank lose less when selling through foreclosure than the insurance would pay out? That's most important I think.

I do not know where you are but in FL it can take 4 years to do a foreclosure but the average is about 1,000 days. We have been told by
asset managers that in a Judicial Foreclosure State (like in FL) it can cost upwards of $50,000 to foreclose. And Yes, the Title insurance company would have to write a BIG check to the owner of the note.

IMHO, reduce the price until you get a contract and then send it to the Mortgage Services Company and see what happens. But, be aware that the PMI company will also have to approve it.

Good Luck
