Short Sale Success in Plainfield, IL ~ Short Sales Do Close!!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX of Naperville

On Aug 31, my short sale listing in Plainfield IL closed. What seemed to be a long process with many Plainfield, ILhurdles finally came to an end. In this case, the process took a bit longer because there was a private mortgage insurance company that also needed to approve the short sale. In addition, the bank's negotiator was somewhat unorganized -- let an approval letter and BPO expire -- not good.

The seller owed $260,000, and the short sale was approved for $190,000. It took 120 days from receipt of contract to close.

The success also came from everyone being patient and working together. The buyer's agent was very understanding and great to work with, the buyers were extremely patient -- even had a wedding in between -- the attorneys were the glue that held everything together.

Yes, short sales are a lot of work but in the end, are very rewarding -- with one less foreclosure on the market and to hear the grateful words of seller -- out weighs all the work.

You touched on a key point in short sales.  If you're the listing agent you have to keep the buyer's agent informed and make sure they're communicating the progress to their buyers.  Keeping everyone in the loop helps hold contracts together.
