What are Power of Sale loans?

Knowing what a power of sale is before diving into what Power of Sale loans are, may be helpful information for some people because it outlines why some buyers find power of sale homes so enticing. Power of sale, this is when the holder of the mortgage (the lender of the mortgage loan, if any) has repossessed the house due to default of payment by the homeowner. Once a lender is the one placing the home on the real estate market, it is listed by law at fair market value. This is a power of sale and therefore home buyers are attracted to these types of realty sales, there is not too much wiggle room for haggling over the listing price. The only downside to a power of sale listing on a house is, the house is purchased as I condition, in other words, in its current state and condition. This is where Power of Sale loans come into play, these types of loans are geared by lenders to process applicants quickly and efficiently, so that there is no time lost to paperwork and get the borrower the needed funds, providing the borrower qualifies for this type of loan.

How do stop power of sale loans work?

This is where Power of Sale loans lenders steps in with potential buyers, for some buyers do not readily have the cash on hand to purchase a home that is priced at fair market value, and therefore apply for Power of Sale loans. The lender that provides Power of Sale loans has it stipulated within the terms of the contract that the home itself is the collateral against the loan, which works out well for the buyer, as this type of loan is moved forward and processed quickly.

How can using Power of Sale loans offer personalized and gainful impact?

Although the homes that are listed on the MLS as power of sale are at fair market value, there is no real chance to purchase the home for a lessor price point, so making an offer on this type of listing should not fall below the list price. To buyers that are in the business of flipping homes after intense renovations for quick sales, Power of Sale loans is the ideal way to fund these purchases and ventures. This ‘profit flipping’ has a gainful impact on the buyer with a shorter loan term and faster pay off time frame (less overall interest payments drawn out over many months translates into huge savings!). Power of Sale loans lenders still require pertinent financial information as would be needed with other loan products, the loan may be processed faster, but it does not mean there is less criteria than other types of loans. The good news is, if a buyer qualifies for Power of Sale loans and pays the loan off as per the set terms & contract, the buyer not only positively impacts their credit rating, it is the beginning of future financial freedoms!
