Northeast OH Short Sales: What To Look For In A Buyer's Offer

Northeast OH – Short sales often get multiple offers from different buyers. Which offer should you accept over the others?

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

Most people would assume that you would automatically pick the offer with the highest price. However, this isn’t always a good idea.

The offer with the highest price may have the shakiest financing. Most short sale lender issue a deadline when they approve a short sale. They state that their approval is only good for 30 days.

After 30 days, then they short sale has to be re-negotiated from scratch. That only causes the process to drag out another 2-6 months. So, you want to make sure the buyer’s offer is strong and that their financing is approved.

In this case, a little lower price might be worth considering versus a higher price with an unqualified buyer. Another thing to consider is repairs. Some short sales need repairs before they can be financed.

Most loan programs are for homes in good condition. If your home needs repairs, then most of the buyers won’t get approved for a loan until those repairs are completed. But, not every buyer has lots of cash on hand to make repairs.

Ask your agent for advice on which offer to accept. The offer with the highest price and best qualifications is the one you should pick. Thinking about a short sale?
