More About Short Sales
If you are a properly-qualified buyer, you may find this to be a
time to buy real estate. You have the potential to buy first-class
properties at prices that are often below market prices.
Lenders who have financed many of these properties are trying to avoid foreclosures. If the
situation is right, they will gladly allow a property to be sold for a
fraction of what the owner owes them. There are many reasons why the lenders
are motivated, and we would be happy to discuss them with you.
Before you get too excited, however, you should know that the number of
great deals, particularly in South Beach, Bal Harbour and other beach cities
may be less than what you imagine. Understand that short sales are quite
rare, even in today's market. Our current list (see below) of short sale
properties for sale in Miami Beach shows only 0
condos for sale (Source: SEF MLS properties listed
at $500,000 or higher). Every now and then we find something amazing,
but it's not an every day occurrence.
There are a few things you need to be aware of as a buyer of a short sale
- You must be an all-cash buyer, AND
- Financing will not be permitted on these sales (cash only), AND
- It normally takes about 3 months to complete a short sale
When you make your offer, you must be able to prove that you have the
funds to make the purchase. A letter from your bank is normally sufficient.
Your offer is always going to be subject to lender approval, and this can
take 30-90 days, sometimes longer. So, you will need to be patient.
