Buying a Wellington FL Short Sale: Short Sale Negotiations

Buying a Wellington Short Sale can be a very daunting and confusing process, especially if you are not working with an experienced Wellington Short Sale Agent who can guide you through the process.  This is the second in a series of post, which will serve to educate Wellington home buyers about the often misunderstood process called a short sale:

Buying a Wellington FL Short Sale Part 2
Buying a Wellington Short Sale: Short Sale Negotiations

Besides knowing
 what a Wellington Short Sale is it is also important for a buyer to understand who they will be negotiating with when they submit an offer on a Wellington short sale.  

The Residential Contract for Sale and Purchase is between the buyer and seller, who is still the owner of record, NOT the short sale bank.  While the short sale bank ultimately needs to approve the short sale in order for the home to be sold, they are not a party to the actual contract.

So when a buyer submits an offer on a Wellington short sale they will be negotiating with the seller, who can accept, counter or reject any offers they receive
.  Once the short sale seller comes to terms with ONE buyer they will then submit the executed contract to their lender(s) for final approval.

I am guessing a lot of buyers don't realize this.  Great post to point out the parties to the transaction.

Making it all simple to understand in key, Michelle. You've accomplished that so well! I suspect many, despite how long these transactions have been around, do not get how they work. Or don't.

It is imperative for a)  Wellington short sale buyers to hire a buyer's agent such as your self Michelle!  AND b)  to listen to that agent!  Short sales are such an odd transaction that sometimes it doesn't make steps.  Hiring an agent that is up to par with what a short sale transaction entails is the difference between success and failure when purchasing.
