The buyer here will need to pay off the loan , you may contact the lender lawyer on the foreclosure and ask for a payout.You can do a quick sale here through title company and close quickly.It is possible to pull this off but you have to act quickly.The lawyer can give you a pay off there are some late fees, legal fees, and the loan balance to add up.

Call the lawyer on the foreclosure, you can get this from the court.See if you can get the lawyer and the buyer on the line in a three way call to resolve it.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight and wish you the best.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
