Before we start the search for your dream home it is important to know about the terms and requirements for a short sale and importantly What is a short sale? It’s a transaction in which the bank allows a homeowner to sell for less than the mortgage balance owed on the house. Because the bank is releasing the homeowner from their debt, and is therefore taking a loss, the bank negotiators have the final say regarding the price and terms of the sale.
There’s no doubt that short sale listings are priced a bit lower than non-distressed listings, but if you’re in a hurry to own a home, there’s no sense in wasting your time with them.
So, the first requirement of a short sale buyer is to be patient and not in a hurry.
How do you know if you're a good candidate for a short-sale purchase? :
Are you very patient?
Are your finances is in order
Do you have any contingencies?.
If you're serious about purchasing a short-sale property, it's important for you to have expert assistance.
A qualified real estate professional will explain the who,what, when, where,why and how.
Why hire a buyer’s agent?
The second reason to have a buyer’s agent is to have someone who is working for you rather than for the seller. After all, your interests really are opposite. You want the best house for the least money. The seller wants the highest price he or she can get.
As your Short Sale Specialist agent, I’ll help you present an offer to buy that protects your interests, and then I’ll negotiate the price and terms on your behalf.
When you work with the listing agent, that agent’s duty is to the seller, and you are on your own.
As your short sale buyer’s agent I’ll not only negotiate on your behalf, I’ll keep your private information confidential. And that is important. When the seller’s agent knows how much money you can spend, why you’re moving, details about your life that would indicate an urgency to buy, or the fact that you’ve fallen head over heels in love with the house, your negotiating position is destroyed.
And in case you’re wondering, there’s no additional cost to having a buyer’s agent on your side.
Both the listing agent and the buyer’s agent are paid from the transaction. So the cost to you is the same whether or not you have representation.
