When choosing to buy a short sell or foreclosure many questions come to mind; is the property worth the time involved, will the market affect the buying or selling process, how will I ensure that this wont backfire on me? Although there is no guarantee of success, having the necessary knowledge and being prepared for the unpredictable will most definitely be a plus throughout the transaction.
In its most simplistic form, a short sell occurs when a house or a piece of property has outstanding loans that cost more than the listing is worth. This "over turned" listing now can be potentially bought for far less than the valued price. Like every individual the bank wants to get the most profit from the deal as possible, and be prepared to renegotiate many times for that special price.
Here are some quick tips for preparing your time and money for the short sell and foreclosure negotiation.
• Patience- Hurry up and wait! The short sell game will undoubtedly test your patience to its wits end. The process can take up to a year to close! And more often than not the entire procedure will usually take longer just to get under contract.
• Have all your paperwork in order- When first entering the short sell, have all your required information on hand and current. The bank will ask for these document .. many times. Make sure ALL of the required materials are available and up to date!
Short sells and foreclosures can be a very tricky item to wrangle. From the basic fundamentals above, using an experienced agent can make the entire process easier and more manageable.
