reos: Are Asset Managers Losing The Banks Money? - 12/18/09 05:46 PM

While the media keeps harping on the horrible state of the Real Estate Market, we are seeing Multiple Offers on Oceanfront properties again.  Any time the listing price is lower than the amount the property finally sells for, it is fair to assume that a multiple bid situation has occurred.
Here are four oceanfront condos transacted in North Myrtle Beach within the last 90 days which sold for more than the asking prices:

Three of the properties were Bank Owned and one was a Short Sale. Two of the Bank Owned properties were contracted within a … (14 comments)
