Want to purchase a short sale?

A short sale happens when the seller's lender consents to receive a reduced amount to release a mortgage. If you have any questions regarding real estate in Davie, Florida, contact me here or e-mail me.

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?

The short answer is "sometimes". Most people hear the words "short sale" and automatically think of a seller that is in financial trouble and must sell their house fast to avert further financial problems. This is sometimes the case and can be an opportunity for a buyer to do well from another's misfortune. Alternatively, a lender may consider a short sale even if the seller isn't delinquent with their payments, but property values have declined. In these cases the "bargain" price may in fact be consistent with current market values rather than below.

Are you ready to buy a short sale property?

  • Always do your research before making any offers. Using a qualified real estate professional from Unicasa International USA Realty to support your research of a property can help you make educated decisions. We can help discover to whom the property is titled, how much is owed to the lender, and whether or not a foreclosure notice has been filed. Acquiring these facts can help you decide how much to offer.
  • Use an agent with short sale expertise. Unicasa International USA Realty can aid you in expediting the transaction and make sure you're protected. Don't allow inexperience to hold up the closing process. Let my experience and knowledge work for you.

  • Even with an experienced real estate agent and under the best circumstances, buying a short sale property will usually take longer than a typical real estate transaction. Be aware that many short sales will not close in 30 days or less. Remember that you're not only having to satisfy 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, which will add time - sometimes even 2 to 3 months.
  • Home protection warranties, buyer credits and allowances, and closing cost concessions are generally non-negotiable when dealing with a short sale. The lender will be selling the property just the way it is which means the lender won't be paying for repairs. Make sure to reserve the right to have the property inspected 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 first and foremost and will always recommend that you make your offer contingent upon the outcome of the inspections.
When you're ready to buy, whether it's a short sale or a typical home sale, Unicasa International USA Realty can help you. Apply my experience and knowledge of real estate to be confident you're getting a fair deal and remain protected during the full deal.
