What You Should Know Before Buying A Northeast OH Short Sale

Northeast OH – If you are considering buying a short sale, then you should know what you are getting involved with. 

First off congratulations! Buying a short sale is a great decision. Most short sales usually sell for 3-5% less than other comparable homes.

So you get the advantage of getting a good deal. Now, I am sure you are asking, “Why are short sales a bargain?”

The reason is that a short sale takes longer than a normal real estate sale. You have to wait 30-60 days for the seller’s bank to approve your offer.

In addition, some agents do not understand short sales. They talk bad about them even though they have not educated themselves on how they work.

Here are a few things you should educate yourself on before making an offer on a short sale.

How experienced at short sales is the seller’s agent? If the seller’s agent has little short sale experience, then you should probably look at another house.

How many liens does the seller have? If the seller has three or more mortgages and/or liens, then you should pass. It’s hard to make a short sale work in these situations.

Remember the Aesop’s Fable about the monkeys with their hands in the jar? Well, all three lienholder’s hands are in the cookie jar. But, none will put down any cookies so they can pull their hand out.

The bottom line: One or two mortgages and/or liens is ok. Three or more is not.
