Denominado como un short sale. La venta corta es el proceso a trav&eacute;s del cual un propietario de una vivienda puede vender una casa por menos dinero del que le debe al banco por la hipoteca de la propiedad. Para las personas que no pueden continuar pagando las mensualidades al banco existen otras alternativas diferentes a declararse en bancarrota o ir al FORECLOSURE. Una de las opciones existentes es llamada "venta corta". A veces, para evitar el costoso proceso de un forecloure, la instituci&oacute;n que ha hecho el pr&eacute;stamo hipotecario prefiere recurrir a la "venta corta" mientras los vendedores (Ud) puede quedarse en la casa viviendo. El benefico final es que usted sigue viviendo su casa ; que no tenga un foreclosure en su credito y se le permite vender la casa a otro comprador por menos dinero del que todav&iacute;a adeuda ud al banco..</strong><br \><br \>1 reply Mon, 07 May 2012 15:39:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Short-Sale-en-Puerto-Rico/441815/ 2012-05-07T15:39:00Z how can i find how much i can sell my house http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-i-find-how-much-i-can-sell-my-house/552525/ 3 replies Fri, 01 Aug 2014 00:24:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-can-i-find-how-much-i-can-sell-my-house/552525/ 2014-08-01T00:24:00Z Want to know the value of a home in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico 00745 http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Want-to-know-the-value-of-a-home-in-Rio-Grande-Puerto-Rico-00745/561999/ Dear Gentlemen,<br/>My friend wants to sell a home in Colinas del Yunque; Rio Grande, PR 00745.<br/><br/>She wants to know the value of the home the sale price and the settlemen chares and taxes.<br/><br/>Thank you for your information.<br/><br \><br \>1 reply Tue, 07 Oct 2014 13:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Want-to-know-the-value-of-a-home-in-Rio-Grande-Puerto-Rico-00745/561999/ 2014-10-07T13:21:00Z Why is my home not visibly listed? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Why-is-my-home-not-visibly-listed/546715/ Zillow website provided congratulation on posting our home over 2 weeks ago.

Por ejemplo, quienes compraron una propiedad en $400,000 hace seis a&ntilde;os, y ahora esa misma vivienda fue tasada en $200,000, pero debe $380,000, ya tendr&iacute;an uno de los criterios que el banco toma en cuenta al evaluar las solicitudes para hacer un "short sale". Toda venta corta debe ser aprobada por el banco o los bancos que tienen las hipotecas. Se aprueba al vendedor, que debe cualificar, y luego se aprueba la venta y las condiciones de la misma, cuando aparece un comprador. El vendedor tiene que hacer los tr&aacute;mites requeridos por el banco que tiene la hipoteca. No existe tal cosa como un librito donde est&eacute;n todas las explicaciones y criterios para aprobar una venta corta, es necesario un proceso de negociaci&oacute;n. <br/><br/>Si t&uacute; quieres comprar una casa en "short sale": Ser flexible es la primera condici&oacute;n. Entiende dos cosas importantes, el precio puede variar y es muy dif&iacute;cil que se cumplan con las fechas estipuladas. Usualmente hay que hacer extensiones a los contratos. No te dejes deslumbrar por el precio de venta que veas. Muchas veces los vendedores ponen precios tentativos, conscientes de que la &uacute;ltima palabra la tiene el banco due&ntilde;o de la hipoteca. A veces el precio atractivo no est&aacute; ni cerca de lo que es el valor real de las propiedades, y el banco ni mira la oferta, o te env&iacute;a una contra oferta, con el precio que ellos consideran que tiene la propiedad. Comprende que el proceso puede tardar. Es frustrante, es cierto, pero tienes que estar preparado para pasarte un tiempo sin tener noticias. Lo peor es que la mayor&iacute;a de las veces, el mismo agente de bienes ra&iacute;ces que tiene el listado de la propiedad no sabe a ciencia cierta, si el banco aprobar&aacute; el precio y mucho menos cu&aacute;nto tiempo tardar&aacute; en enviar su<br \><br \>0 replies Wed, 01 May 2013 01:01:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Short-Sale/490323/ 2013-05-01T01:01:00Z I am having trouble getting the map with the home address. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-having-trouble-getting-the-map-with-the-home-address/478241/ 0 replies Mon, 11 Feb 2013 22:57:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-having-trouble-getting-the-map-with-the-home-address/478241/ 2013-02-11T22:57:00Z
