Short and Sweet, Charlie encourages buyers to develop their own individual concept of "Value". Having worked with a serious buyer lately, I will guarantee that it will benefit you to look beyond shortsales and foreclosures.
I posted about this a while ago . But recently I have felt the need to post it again. Many out there are looking only at foreclosures and short sales. But truth be told what they should be looking for is VALUE. Value can be found in short sales and foreclosures . But it can also be found in conventional sales. If you are a first time home buyer do not fall prey to the media hype and limit yourself to looking at one type of property. Let your Realtor show you value. What it s called after that , short sales etc etc. is really meaningless. Value dictates the amount of money you are going to spend. So why not make Value your key word when looking for a good deal?
