A short sale process is done in the hopes the bank will accept a loss and partially salvage their credit in lieu of a foreclosure. There are a few things to understand before you attempt to buy a short sale.

A short sale price is usually set by the agent and seller, not the lender. These low prices are set to attract buyers, and even though the bank may be initially unaware of the price, it is the bank who ultimately accepts the offer. But because banks are usually unaware of the price throughout the process, it can lead to the process taking months to close.

Buyers of short sales must remain optimistic. A short sale might be "short", but that doesn't mean the process is a short one. It can sometimes be a very long process. It's important to partner up with one of Start Packing's experienced short sale agents to execute a successful short sale. A savvy agent will know the process and can help the process along smoothly. They won't overlook any details and will keep things on schedule.

Along with teaming up with one of our agents, you'll want your finances in complete order before you put in that offer. This includes looking over your credit report, looking for inaccuracies, and figuring out what you can comfortably afford each month. As part of the completed package, a pre-qualification from the bank is mandatory.
