3 Months and I Finally Got All Of The Paperwork! These Short Sales Can Take A While, But If You Hang In There...You Might Get Them Closed!

Real Estate Agent with Oakstone Properties, Homes in Richmond VA


Great news on a short sale!  After 3 months, I finally got the ratified contract, the lead base paint disclosure and the property disclosure statement.  3 months!  It is amazing how long some of these things can drag out.  The only thing we can do is let our clients know how long they can take and if they want to hang in there, work as hard as we can and always keep them posted.  This one is finally going through and I am happy that my clients are going to get the home they wanted. 

The Richmond VA real estate market is flooded with foreclosures and short sales.  As a realtor in Richmond VA, you need to roll up your sleeves and prepare to get dirty.  There can be a lot of headaches that come along with these foreclosures and short sales, but with so many flooding the market; you need to accept them as part of the job.

If you hang in there, you just might get them closed.  Hopefully it won't take as long as this one.  If you are thinking about buying homes in Richmond VA, you might be able to get a good deal on a short sale if you can wait out the process.  I wish all of you the best.

I'm into my sixth month on one where we opened escrow on December 23. I have a very patient Client who wanted a bargain. Sometimes you have to wait for the best things in life.

We've been told to let the clients know to be patient with short sales and to expect 5-9 months to close.  Have a great week.
