Short Sales DO Sell

Short Sales DO Sell

Sellers Have You Seen the Competition You're Up Against?You may have heard talk of short sales before and either you didn’t get a good understanding of what a short sale really is or you simply thought that any effort to sell your home would be fruitless.

First for those that are not familiar with short sales:  a short sale is when the bank or mortgage company has agreed to consider a buyer’s purchase offer on your home that is less then what you (the homeowner) owes on the home.  That’s the gist of what a short sale is and you can find out more about short sales on the this website and by all means if you have questions or just want to pick my brain, please call me at 205-527-1112.

Now for those that think that any effort to sell your underwater home will be fruitless, then you’ll want to take a good look at the information below as it is extraordinarily contrary to your belief.

As you can see from the chart and table below, no area or demographic is immune from distressed property sales.  It doesn’t matter where you live, you have likely had a neighbor complete or attempt a short sale.  If you are having difficulty paying your mortgage and just need to get some answers or discuss your options, please contact me at 205-527-1112 or use the form a the bottom of this post.  Otherwise you may be overlooking a possibility for some financial relief.
