The HAFA program, complements HAMP by providing a viable alternative for borrowers who are HAMP eligible but can not qualify and are unable to keep their home.
It uses borrower financial and hardship information already collected under HAMP.
One of the most important steps for your Realtor is that allows borrowers to receive pre-approved short sales terms before listing the property (including the minimum acceptable net proceeds and acceptable closing costs).
The biggest benefit to you as a homeowner is that borrowers to be fully released from future liability for the first mortgage debt and, if the subordinate lien holders receives an incentive under HAFA, those debt as well will not seek a deficiency against the homeowner.
It also provides financial incentives: $3,000 for borrower relocation assistance!!!!!
In a short sale with HAFA you SELL YOUR HOUSE and you owe the lender nothing!
