 Philadelphia Short Sale Success in Fishtown

Last week we had another successful short sale in Fishtown.  It was a great feeling to help our seller client get out of a very difficult positon and be able to be instrumental in helping him move foward in his life.  At the same time, the buyers will be a great addition to the Fishtown community.  It is deals like this that make being a professional Realtor worthwhile !

The great thing about a successful short sale is that it becomes ONE LESS FORECLOSURE !  The seller's bank did play a little hardball but we were able to work out a resolution that benefited all the parties.  For Stephanie and I, we are still batting 100 percent with our short sale listings.  Which means for every Philadelphia short sale listing that we have taken, all have settled !  Some deals were very difficult but we have always made it to the settlement table !

I find that the short sales are really satisfying because not only are they more challenging to complete you are helping someone avoid losing their home to foreclosure.

Bill - So true.  It is a great feeling to help the client in a tough position... especially to avoid foreclosure !  Is also in my opinion beneficial to the neighborhood to have one less foreclosure as well !

Micheal - Thanks !  You are right, everyboydy wins.  Best of luck to you in 2009 as well.

Kristin - Fishtown is a really cool neighborhood... a combination of older homes and new construction.  It is a great feeling to knock out a successful short sale for all the people involved.
