Yes, you’re right. I was just curious if it was possible to do it that way. I don’t have the $6 grand to give her anyway! Will probably be more like $500 or $1000.

Hi all:

I have a question about short sales. I’m negotiating with a lady to purchase her home. She is about $6000 behind in payments and has little or no equity. Her husband had a bad head injury and is disabled, and she wants to move soon. She says she needs about $6000 to move.

If I can negotiate with the bank and convince the bank to settle the loan for a lot less than what is owed, how can I help her get her moving money out of the property? Could I purchase the washer and dryer for $2500 each or something like that? Or just give her the 6 grand? I don’t want to do anything illegal.

Sean, you can buy her washer and dryer. On the records, the borrower is not to receive anything from the deal. If you do, the 6k it would have to be off the books and no record of it. But I would have to ask, why are you even giving them 6k if they are about to be foreclosed on. I would offer them a little bit of money to move on and be done with it. I just think 6k is far to substantial of an amount to give someone who is about to lose everything and not get a penny.
Just my two cents
