If you are one that is on the fence and thinking about should I or shouldn’t I??? My answer to you is “Yes”. Now is the time. The two main reasons in my opinion is: Banks are becoming more sensitive to the home owners needs of getting rid of the home and secondly agents are out there selling more of the short sale homes due to the banks becoming more cooperative and a better track record of a successful closing. Another reason why more short sales are being sold in TODAY’S market is due to the lower inventory of REO’s (foreclosed homes).
Myth #3 – There is Not Enough Time to Negotiate a Short Sale Before My Foreclosure
This is a myth that probably hurts homeowners the most. Many do not realize that foreclosure is a process, and that there is time to make decisions that may result in better outcomes.
The foreclosing party—in most cases a lender—can stall a foreclosure up to the final day of the process. Today, many lenders will stall a foreclosure with as little as a phone call from you explaining that you are trying to sell, and almost all lenders will stall a foreclosure with a legitimate contract. For real estate professionals who understand foreclosures and short sales, there is time available until the foreclosure process is complete. *
