Looking to buy a short sale?

A short sale happens when the seller's lender agrees to receive a reduced payoff to release a mortgage. For more information, just contact me through my site or e-mail me. I'm happy to address 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.

Are short sales bargains?

From time to time, yes. Often times people hear the words "short sale" and routinely think of a seller that is in default and must sell their house promptly to avert further financial problems. This is at times the case and can be an opportunity for a buyer to do well from another's misfortune. More commonly, a lender may consider a short sale even if the seller is current, but property values have declined. In cases such as these the "bargain" price may in fact be in line with current market values instead of below.

Are you ready to buy a short sale property?

  • Before making any purchase offers, do your homework. Using an experienced REALTOR® from Unicasa International USA Realty to assist you with researching a property can help you make educated decisions. We can help find out to whom the property is titled, the amount owed to the lender, and whether or not a foreclosure notice has been filed. Acquiring this information can help you make a decision about how much to offer.
  • Get an agent with short sale expertise. Unicasa International USA Realty can aid you in expediting the transaction and ensure that you're protected. Don't allow inexperience to impede the closing process. Put my knowledge and experience to work for you.

  • Even with an experienced real estate agent and under the best of situations, buying a short sale property will generally take longer than a typical real estate transaction. Know that a majority of 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 be seen by a committee to approve, which will add time - sometimes even 2 to 3 months.
  • Home protection plans, buyer credits and allowances, and closing cost concessions are normally not negotiable when working with a short sale. The lender is selling the property just the way it is which means the lender isn't going to pay for repairs. Make sure to reserve the right to have 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 recommend that you make your offer contingent upon the results of the inspections.
If you are ready to buy, whether it be a short sale or a typical home sale, Unicasa International USA Realty can help you. Utilize my experience and knowledge of real estate to be certain you're getting a fair deal and remain protected during the full matter.
