Short Sale Roller Coaster Ride - Don't Say I didn't Warn You...

My friend from Lake Mary makes some excellent points regarding the emotional factors triggered by engaging in a short sale transaction. Thank you, Debbie. I appreciate you making this re-blog available for my readers.

Excitement...Frustration...Hope...Desperation...Anger...Disappointment and Disgust!  These are the feelings that a buyer is likely to have during the 3rd party approval process of a home that is a short sale...and that's during a sale THAT ACTUALLY ENDS UP CLOSING.

Once you write a contract on a short sale you could be waiting weeks and often months for an answer from the seller's lender.  Should you consider writing an offer on a short sale?  Please think about this first...

Short sales are not for everyone:

If you have a specific timetable to meet... Don't write a contract on a short sale.

If you can't accept the property in the condition that it is today... Don't write a contract on a short sale.

If you don't have a backup plan... Don't write a contract on a short sale.

If the seller of the property is an investor... Don't write a contract on a short sale.

If you are considering the purchase of a short sale...talk to a REALTOR.  Your REALTOR will advise you about the process and whether or not you are a candidate for a short sale.  The process is often long and leaves many without a successful conclusion.

Do the rewards often times out way the risks? Absolutely, but only you can decide if you are willing to wait after you know all the facts.
