Looking to make a deal on a short sale?

When a lender and a seller agree to release a mortgage for an amount less than what's owed on a house, it's called a short sale. For more information, simply contact me through my site or e-mail me. I'm happy to address any questions you have about real estate short sales.

Purchasing a short sale in Davie, Florida on your own is risky. Contact Unicasa International USA Realty for expert advice.

Can I get a good deal on a short sale?

From time to time, yes. Many people hear the phrase "short sale" and instinctively think of a seller that is insolvent and needing to sell their home quickly to avoid further financial problems. This is at times the case and can be an opportunity for a buyer to take advantage of another's misfortune. On the other hand, a lender may consider a short sale even if the seller is current, but property values have depreciated. In cases such as these the reduced price may in fact be closer to current market values instead of below.

Are you ready to buy a short sale property?

  • Always do your research before making any offers. Using a knowledgeable REALTOR® from Unicasa International USA Realty to support your research of a property will help you make knowledgeable decisions. We can help find out to whom the property is titled, the balance still owed to the lender, and whether or not a foreclosure notice has been filed. Obtaining this data can help you decide how much to offer.
  • Use a REALTOR® with short sale experience. Unicasa International USA Realty can aid you in expediting the transaction and ensure that you're protected. Don't permit inexperience to hold up the closing process. Let my experience and knowledge work in your favor.

  • Even with an experienced real estate agent and under the best of situations, buying a short sale property will probably take longer than a typical real estate transaction. Be informed that most short sales will not close in less than 30 days. Remember that you're not only having to get approval from the seller, but the lender must also agree to the terms of the sale. In most cases your offer will go before a committee to approve or disapprove, which will add time - sometimes even 2 to 3 months.
  • Home protection warranties, buyer credits and allowances, and closing cost concessions are normally not negotiable when buying a short sale. The lender will sell the property as seen which means the lender won't be paying for repairs. Make sure to reserve the right to perform inspections for pests, HVAC, electrical, and other critical areas. At Unicasa International USA Realty, when I write an offer, I am looking out for your interests above all else and will always suggest that you make your offer contingent upon the inspection results.
When it is time to buy, whether it is a short sale or a typical home sale, Unicasa International USA Realty is available for you. Utilize my experience and knowledge of real estate to make sure that you're getting a fair deal and remain protected during the whole purchase transaction.
