Another Coeur d'Alene Idaho short Sale Success Story

Short Sale Success StoryI have no photos of smiling faces at the closing table, but today was a good day!  After a long and grueling short sale adventure spanning more than six months, I was able to get my short sale listing successfully SOLD!  It is a day of victory in getting a difficult transaction to close, finally, mercifully.  It took much perseverance, persistence, wrangling and extreme highs and lows of emotion on both sides of the table. 

One interesting thing about short sales is that so many wild cards come flying out of left field, just when you think you have overcome all the obstacles.  My seller isn't celebrating today, but she has brought closure to this chapter of her life and can now move forward.  She has peace of mind knowing she made the best of a bad situation.  It is gratifying to be able to be a part of that. 

The buyer is celebrating, for sure.  She just bought this beautiful three bedroom, two bath home, just a few years old, for $125,000.  She got a KILLER DEAL!  At interest rates lower than her grandparents paid when they bought their home. 

Buyers who have the patience to see a short sale through a process that is an exercise in frustration are the ones scooping up the screaming real estate deals in Coeur d'Alene these days. 

If you are considering buying or selling a short sale, you need a strong agent protecting your interests and making it happen for you.  Call me for a no-strings-attached confidential conversation,  I can answer your questions and help you determine if you are a good candidate for a short sale.  Sometimes short sales can be a really good option.

This is great news indeed! I've avoided short sales, since in the condo market, you can usually find a comparable condo that is NOT a short sale, and can close much faster. In the single family home arena, I think it's probably much different as the homes and locations are going to be more unique.

Congrats to everyone!

That is great news. You gave me food for thought. Maybe I will write a success story today.
