About Short Sales

A short sale is a property transaction where the lender will agree to take less than what is owed on the property. For the lender to agree to take less, the homeowner must supply the bank with many documents supporting loss of income and insufficient assets to pay the mortgage.


This process used to take an avarage of nine month to complete. however, with the advent of new technology the turnaround time has been shrunk in some cases to as quickly as three months or less!


The longer timeframe was turning away many qualified buyers who were not willing to wait to hear if their offer was accepted. Again, this may provide you with another opportunity if you are willing to wait and if you accept the possibility that even after waiting you might not get the property.


The biggest difference between short sales and REO properties is that with a short sale the existing homeowner still owns the property while an REO property is owned by the lender.


Don't be turned off by a property just because it is a short sale. Yes, waiting to hear if your offer is accepted will inhibit you from making other offers but you could also find that "diamond in the rough". Don't let other people's horror stories change what you think about the short sales. Many of those stories are outdated.

Tip of the Month

February Checklist
The transition between winter and spring is the time to get a jump on moisture damage and heat loss, make quick work of organizing storage areas and work in some garden prep before spring. Don’t let winter slip away without using the cold, wet weather to help you detect where your home is leaking water and heat, giving you a chance to seal it up tight and develop a wish list for energy-saving improvements for spring!
