If you are thinking of selling your home as a short sale, ask the agent you are thinking of listing with how many short sales they have listed this year, how many Short Sales they have closed? You might not want your preforeclosure to be their first listing, or their first short sale.

If you are thinking of buying a Short Sale, you will need an experienced Short Sale Agent.

  • Make sure your agent prices your offer around market value if you are truly interested in purchasing this property. If it is a "HOT" property, you run the risk of someone not lowballing and writing a much stronger offer than you. Start out a little lower, but whatever you offer, always offer what you are comfortable walking away without an accepted offer in hand, knowing that you gave it your BEST effort.
  • Know that most banks in a Short Sale situation are not yet handling these offers where they would counter, most are simply rejecting the offer. There are a couple out there that have gotten savvy and up to date enough that their Short Sale department will actually volunteer where the offer needs to be for them to accept the offer.
  • Banks work off of Bottom Line, what their net will be. There are fees that some of the banks will not pay, and some will pay. Some of these fees are home warranties, extreme amount of buyer closing costs, surveys, etc. Some banks will pay past due HOA fees, SOME WILL NOT.
  • Make sure your agent asks if the seller has FHA financing, as there are certain criteria to follow on FHA Short Sales, specifically on how the agent will write your offer/what is allowable and what isn't.

Hi Heather.

I believe I played a pretty nice golf course in Greenwood once.  Are you about 15 minutes north of Indy?

Sometimes I get a verbal counter from the banks for Sacramento short sales. They might ask the buyer to submit an addendum changing the price by a few grand, which we do and then we get approval.

Grace,  Indianapolis is has 567 active Short Sales currently, so even better for investors, etc.

Ken, Greenwood is actually about 20 minutes south of downtown Indianapolis, we have some good courses-that is my completely novice opinion.  : )

Elizabeth, Thanks for the heads up on how you handle that.  We haven't had too many verbal counters from banks, but we push for those so we can get files closed!

Heather - We have been working several shot sales lately and it seems that nothing is usual and everything is more work than it ever was before!  We are pulling out our hair and trying to keep up!

Hi Heather, the buyers that want to buy Short Sales in Manhattan New York Market often like to make low ball offers to already well priced property. It is good to know that you are an experience agent that can help your buyers through this process.

We get some low ball offers here as well, but at minimum it normally gets the ball rolling with the seller's lender to order an appraisal or BPO, unless the offer is incredibly low!
