How long does it take to close a SHORT sale? 255 Days - Start to Finish!!!! Doesn't Sound SHORT!

How long does it take to close a SHORT sale?     255 Days - Start to Finish!!!!

Doesn't Sound SHORT!

Almost Every Day a Client or potential client asks how long it will take if they want to put an offer in on a Short Sale or to sell their home as a Short Sale? Well, here's a great example. 255 days from start to finish.

At least 15 offers on the property. At least 10 that were not actually pre-approved, at least 1 that got pre-approved and then got rejected because of changes in their credit while waiting for lender approval.

Right when the last deal fell apart, a cash buyer came in and got a deal in a couple of weeks.

MY ADVICE IS AVOID A SHORT SALE PURCHASE IF YOU CAN!!!!!

Thank you very much once again for your guidance in selecting a Townhouse for my daughter. Your straightforward and professional approach was not only impressive but greatly appreciated ! Rene

 

A Long Enjoyable Relationship

: "Over the year that it took to sell our house in Knoxville and buy a house in Winter Springs I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Richard Shuman. From the beginning he understood what we wanted to buy. He took us to a good selection of homes in Winter Springs and we managed to refine what and where we were hoping to buy. When our house in Knoxville finally sold Richard moved into high gear with us to find an excellent house and help us negotiate a good deal. He handled all the transactions, including our mortgage, with a high degree of professional competence and efficiency. Our closing went smoothly and effortlessly and we moved in just 7 days after closing on the sale of our Knoxville house. Perfect timing! My wife and I recommend Richard, especially to "experienced" buyers, because of his ability to quickly learn what the buyers are looking to purchase and then his laser sharp focus on helping them find it."  Dave W.

 

Great Experience!!

 "Richard was everything that I wanted in a realtor!! He listened to what I wanted and delivered. I flew in from Ohio for a weekend in order to buy a house. We went out and in one day had the offer accepted on a wonderful house. He continued to help me throughout the closing process and even set me up with a great insurance agent. I would definitely recommend Richard to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home with out dealing with all the BULL!! Thank you so much Richard!!" Dr Marian M.

"Richard was very helpful in the search for our home. He went out of his way to take us around to different locations meeting our criteria, even one that was not on our list-which is the one we bought! He was very prompt in returning calls and aiding us with financing. He played the advocate for us with our mortgage lender. The whole process was pleasant and almost stress free."  Amanda H.
