house buyers: Top Short Sale Processes - Navigating NY's Short Sales - 04/24/16 10:15 AM

 
Any dedicated bargain hunter who scours the Long Island listings is not surprised to find among the most deeply discounted entries one of two notations: foreclosure or short sale.
Everyone knows what the “foreclosure” designation means—it’s been repossessed by the bank. It’s an REO (real estate owned). By discounting the asking price, the lending entity invites buyers to take the property off its books. It is here that the economists’ favorite acronym, “TANSTAAFL” (There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch), comes into play.
