Short Sale Home Listings
Understanding Short Sale
Short sale listings offer prospective buyers the opportunity to participate in a transaction that can have very favorable economic terms. Often the property owner has fallen behind on payments and the loan amount is higher than the current market value of the property. A Short Sale is basically when the property owner sells their property for what is less than is owed to the bank. The property owner’s lender essentially lower the amount owed to allow the short sale to happen.
Buyers need extreme patience as short sale transactions generally takes longer than normal transactions. This is because the lender of the property owner has to approve the lower price and it may take weeks for this to happen.
