It Benefits Many When a Rocklin Short Sale Comes Together

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

There are some agents in Sacramento who don't respect sellers of short sales and treat them like tenants or squatters, which I've never really understood. When you're selling your home as a short sale, it means you are taking responsibility for the situation and not running away like a dog with your tail between your legs. Short sale sellers are very different from those who walk away in foreclosure.

It's good for the community to have a short sale, which beats a boarded-up foreclosure, especially when it brings in a new homeowner to love and care for the home. It's not that seller won't take care of a home as much as it is sometimes they don't have the money to maintain and fix up the home, especially if they can't make the mortgage payment.

Doing a short sale gives a seller a shot at a fresh slate. After a few years, the seller can probably buy another home. It takes more one more underwater home out of the neighborhood. You can read more about a recent short sale closing in my personal blog today at this link: Closing a Rocklin Short Sale With Ocwen and PNC.

Short sales can benefit everyone involved in the transaction both the buyer and seller if the bank is willing to work with the seller; unfortunately, sometimes this does not happen.

Pat Champion It happens on my short sales, though, because I choose the ones that are likely to happen. I qualify my sellers and the situations. Agents can feel confident if their buyers go into escrow on my short sale that it will close.

Yep, I'd rather have a short-sale in my neighborhood than a foreclosure, any day of the week!

Hi Elizabeth.  That was a very happy ending.  I can picture the shocked look on the buyer when they saw how clean the home was.

Myrl Jeffcoat Well, fortunately there are not as many short sales anymore, although I do seem to have my share.

James Dray But by not doing short sales, James, you miss making such an incredible difference in a person's life. I helped this guy go from being unemployed and rattling about a 5 bedroom house without furniture in the dark into owning his own home and being self employed, lifting the weight of years of debt from his shoulders.

Conrad Allen Yes, I am happy it was so clean too. I told the guy, don't make the buyer mad at the buyer's agent. I will continue to use that line because it's true.

Barbara-Jo Roberts Berberi, MA, TRC - Greater Clearwater Florida Residential Real Estate Professional Well, we can't write about crappy stuff all of the time, now. :)

I agree it is an accomplishment and that it is no easy task. Many buyers doin't have the staying power, sellers get frustrated and just want to let it go to foreclosure and the agents are priceless in holding it together.
