People in southeastern Wisconsin are becoming more educated about the rewards of buying Short Sales...this week we presented multiple offers on one...and tomorrow...multiple offers on another. We talk with each agent who has written an offer making sure that both the agent and their buyer have an understanding of the process involved and that they know that there is some "hurry up and wait" as the transaction continues through the maze at the bank.
Patience is well rewarded by the tremendous value that a properly priced can provide the buyer. The bonus to the seller(s) is that there is a shorter time on the market and their days of wondering what will happen when are over and they are on their way to starting over and making a fresh start.
Be sure when you show a short sale that the listing agent has successful experience....nothing worse than having a buyer write on a short sale to find that they are part of a listing agent's real estate experiment and there is no chance that the transaction will close. Sellers...when you choose a listing agent for your short sale home..ask for references...know that the agent has successful experience and not passing familiarity from a sales meeting or reading articles on the internet.
If you need suggestions for agents who may be able to help you with a short sale and examine all the alternatives for your particular situation...call us and we are happy to refer you to someone who can help.
