Huntington Beach CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Tamra. She is buying a home and her agent is trying to talk her out of short sales.
Here is Tamra’s question. “I am looking to buy a home. Some of the best priced properties are short sales. However, my agent won’t show me these homes.
She keeps on telling me the prices are lower than the lender will accept and that short sale never close. What should I do? I am really interested in these homes, especially at the price they are being offered at.”
Here was my answer. Tamra, you should talk to your agent and see what they dislike about short sales. Your agent may have had a bad experience with short sales in the past.
Short sales are a great way to purchase a home at a good price. They are tougher and take a lot longer than your average real estate transaction.
However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider them. Just be cautious with your search. Make sure the agent who has the house for sale has prior short sale experience.
Your agent can ask them what short sales they have sold in the past. If they or the people working with them have a good track of working with the banks, then you should be ok.
Remember, not every short sale is going to be approved at the listing price. But, if they banks feel the price is fair, then they will accept the offer.
So go look at some of those short sales. With a little luck one of them will be the perfect home that meets exactly what you are looking for.
