A Common Northeast OH Short Sale Negotiation Mistake: Taking The Property Off The Marketing Before the Short Sale Is Completed

Northeast OH – Short sales can take a long time. The banks are difficult to deal with and many agents do not understand short sales and don’t know what they are doing.

Because of this, many buyers shy away from short sales. Or, if they do make an offer, then they still continue to look at other properties.

If a better home comes on the market, then they will buy that home. Few fully commit themselves to purchasing that home.

Because of this many agents recommend leaving a short sale on the market, even when there is a contract in place. Recently, Bank of America even changed their policies specifically for backup short sale offers.

In my opinion, taking your home off of the market when we have an accepted contract is a mistake. The only exceptions are when the buyer puts up a large down payment or falls in love with a unique home.

We recommend keeping the home on the open market. All agents and buyers will be told there is a contract on the property and that they will be in backup position.

If the buyer really likes the house, then they will submit a backup offer. The whole process is frustrating and not straight forward.

But, we make the best of the situation and do what we can to make the process easier.
