I just got military orders and I’m underwater in my home – what are my options?

Here in Hampton Roads, we have an abundance of military families in our area. With orders to move coming out frequently, we get a lot of calls asking what do they do when they are underwater in their home and they have to move.

A short sale will be their best option in this case. Because they have received military orders, the government has programs that can help forgive the debt they will owe due to the short sale. We always recommend our clients speak to an attorney who specializes in short sales before making any decisions. We have found that this options allows them to sell their home and move to their new location with the least amount of hassle.

If you are facing a situation like this, we have an in house short sale negotiator and a relationship with an experienced attorney that can answer any questions you may have. Just give us a call: 717-1003.

My spouse is military. Can I still go to closing if he/she is on deployment?

Yes. Buyers can have the loan documents signed for them by giving someone a specific power of attorney. The buyer’s lender should be consulted to determine if they require a specific form and to approve the power of attorney before it is signed.  Sellers can likewise close by power of attorney.  The settlement attorney can prepare the power of attorney if needed.  The original power of attorney MUST be brought to closing.
