Northeast OH Short Sale Myth: Short Sales Are Always Sold Below Market Value

Northeast OH – Some people think that short sales represent a bargain in the real estate world. Some people have said that banks sell short sales for below market value because they want to avoid foreclosure.

That isn’t true. Yes, banks do prefer to sell a property in foreclosure as a short sale. They know that short sales usually sell for more money than a foreclosure. I am sure you are wondering why. Let me explain.

Most short sales are still owner occupied. As you probably know all bank foreclosure properties are vacant. An occupied property is much easier to sell than a vacant one.

An owner occupied home looks like a home. The furniture and appliances are setup in their proper places. The house is clean and kept up on.

So short sales do not always represent a bargain. They do represent a bargain compared to other homes on the market whose owners may not understand their home’s true value.

The bank will not approve a short sale unless the home is selling at or near it’s fair market value. So you get a fair price, but not necessarily a bargain when you buy a short sale. Thinking about a short sale?
