I have been asked the questions alot lately about short sales and what does it mean when putting an offer on a short sale. First  things first as your REALTOR i need to have some info from the listing agent for you such as -- has the short sale been approved, has an appraisal been ordered from the lender if so what was the value, are we dealing with one or more lenders, etc... Once I have these questions answered I can assist you in making the decision on if a short sale is a good option for you to look at or stay away from. I always remind everyone they really need some patience because in a short sale both the seller and the buyer have to qualify. Seller has to qualify for the short sale approval and you have to qualify for the loan and everything else that normally applies- inspections, clear title, etc.. A short sale can put you in a position of getting a good deal a really good deal sometimes so if you have some questions give me a call, text, or email!
