sell home as short sale: Does a Buyers offering price on a Short Sale really matter? - 11/22/13 11:56 AM
Does a Buyers offering price on a Short Sale really matter?  
My immediate response is, you betcha!  When a Real Estate Agent represents a distressed Seller as their Short Sale Agent, they’d better know what they’re doing, as a Short Sale differs from a traditional Real Estate sale and unfortunately, too many distressed Seller’s hire Agents who are not skilled in selling homes as a Short Sale.  When hired, this Agent inexperienced in selling Short Sales can put the distressed Seller at great risk; the risk of not getting their home sold and approved as a Short Sale thus, risking … (5 comments)

10 Reasons to celebrate a Short Sale  
10 Reasons to celebrate a Short Sale. Yes, you heard me, “Celebrate”!
You’ve acknowledged that you must sell your home to avoid foreclosure; denial ends and relief begins.
You’ve hired a well qualified Real Estate Agent to sell your home as a Short Sale; you’ve got an advocate on your side.
A well qualified Buyer presents an offer to purchase your Short Sale home; the constant Buyer showings that have been interrupting your life stops.
Daily home cleaning stops; no longer needed now that Buyers aren’t coming in for showings every … (2 comments)

sell home as short sale: Closed on another South Florida Short Sale - Seller escapes deficiency - 01/25/13 07:59 AM
Closed on another South Florida Short Sale - Seller escapes deficiency When selling your home as a South Florida Short Sale, a homeowner’s biggest concern is likely what about the balance of their mortgage; that balance left over after the Buyer’s purchase takes care of a huge chunk of the mortgage. That left over balance known as the deficiency balance is what every Short Sale Realtor’s goal should be to get the homeowner relieved of having to pay it  back.
I’m happy for my most recent South Florida Short Sale closing where my Seller was relieved of having to pay the deficiency … (5 comments)

sell home as short sale: When can we stop selling homes as a Short Sale? - 12/01/12 03:13 AM
When can we stop selling homes as a Short Sale? Another day today, receiving another call from another distessed Seller. Back in 2008, I actively enlisted myself to help the distressed Seller and continue to do so today. Helping a distressed Seller is very rewarding. At the time, it seemed that only a handfull of Realtors were learning all that they could and working hard at saving homeowners from Foreclosure whereas, the majority of Realtors couldn’t stay far enough away from them. Fast forward to today, December 2012, most Realtors now will list a distressed Sellers’ home for sale due to … (5 comments)

sell home as short sale: I want to sell my house....No, I NEED to sell my house! - 08/06/12 11:47 AM
I want to sell my house....No, I NEED to sell my house!
Many homeowners are wondering whether or not they can afford to sell their home? They're trying to think of a way to sell their home when they owe more than what it is worth plus how could they list it with a Real Estate Agent and afford the commission? Another more important question might be - "How can they afford not to sell their house?" Many homeowners continue to be faced with financial difficulties in their households just as I reported back in 2008 and homes across South Florida have … (5 comments)

sell home as short sale: What's more important, your neighbors or Short Selling your home? - 06/13/12 02:16 PM

 
What's more important, your neighbors or Short Selling your home? 
Get comfortable and stop worrying about what your neighbors think!
Many people who are facing a foreclosure are so concerned with what the neighbors will think that they think it's just better to ignore their troubles and walk away as they don't want to have to deal with trying to avoid foreclosure and they certainly don't want to have to deal with what the neighbors will think if they put their home up for sale as a Short Sale; we can't let the neighbors know that we're struggling and have … (9 comments)

sell home as short sale: Ahh...She said - 03/16/12 11:40 AM
Ahh...She said. Yes, it's true, as I experienced another "Ahh" moment when I successfully closed on another South Florida Short Sale and on a Friday.
It was a Bank of America Short Sale.
We received a contract within 2 weeks on the market. (Must have been priced right) The home had no great features, far from it, other than being located close to a popular downtown cafe & shop area, just 2 blocks away.
Contract was submitted to Lender, Bank of America, for HAFA Short Sale approval and within 60 days we received HAFA approval with no counter offer as Lender fully … (6 comments)

sell home as short sale: The 5 Stages before a Short Sale is Considered - 01/13/12 11:06 AM
The 5 Stages before a Short Sale is Considered
In my daily readings I came across the writings of Twyman Towery PhD., where he noted the various stages of change and how it compares to grief; it is on the mark for what a distressed Seller experiences prior to listing their home to sell as a Short Sale.
DENIAL: Our first reaction is to deny, rather than adapt to and embrace, the change in our life Our homes are our filled with memories and hopes this can't be happening to us.
ANGER:  Once we realize we cannot stop the change we become angry that … (12 comments)

sell home as short sale: Take a Mulligan and sell your home as a Short Sale - 01/12/12 11:46 AM
Take a Mulligan and sell your home as a Short Sale. 
Mulligans are famous on many South Florida golf courses when you miss a shot you'll then be given another shot when your first shot comes up short and your first shot won't be counted and they won't worry about it too much; a Mulligan. In golf, your second shot comes up with the next swing or putt. With a Short Sale, you'll get your second shot [or Mulligan] at home ownership perhaps earlier than you thought; dependent upon your financial situation when you sold your home as a Short Sale. Even if your financial situation has been simply trying to … (6 comments)

Want to sell your home as a Short Sale yet you're current on your mortgage?
If I had to guess I would say that you've probably been told by your neighbor or your friend or another Real Estate Agent that you can't sell your home as a Short Sale if you're current on your mortgage payments. Am I right?  I know, I hear it a lot too from people who simply do not know the facts.  I will never understand why people talk out of their hat spewing utter rubbish on a subject that they're likely totally ignorant on: they're just guessing or … (5 comments)

sell home as short sale: The Faces of Short Sales - 10/17/11 11:35 AM
The Faces of Short Sales.
Short Sales continue to plague so many and they do not favor one age group, marital status, area of occupation or sex. They have affected many across all areas of life. I've come across Sellers in their 20's to those in their 70's and everybody in between, Sellers who are single and those who have been married a lifetime, Sellers with lower earning wages to those with well paying jobs and both male and female. The one thing all these different faces of Short Sales have in common is having been faced with misfortune; that is … (5 comments)

A Real Estate Agent's Expectations of a selling a home as a Short Sale.

Are you looking for a Coral Springs Short Sale Specialist?
As a Coral Springs Realtor, I've been helping homeowners avoid foreclosure by selling their home as a Short Sale. I love what I do and couldn't think of doing anything else. I've been negotiating Short Sales for several years now when other Real Estate Agents thought I was crazy for tackling Short Sales. It's not easy by no means which is why I love the challenge. When a Seller's Lender tells me "No" I'll  welcome it along with being able to get them to see the benefit of them accepting their borrowers Short Sale. In fact, when … (0 comments)
