What's happening in Real Estate Today? August 27, 2009 Michele Herndon, REALTOR® The long and short of it is that homes are selling and at a fairly rapid pace when they are priced right. They are NOT selling at the 2005 prices that many of us paid, they are selling at today's true market values. Unfortunately, the values of today are sometimes 50% less than what some home owners have financed. On top of that frightening fact, many of these same homeowners have been hit hard by our nation's economic downturn. When you combine these two facts, the result is that many homeowners must sell their home as a short sale. Short sales today make up the majority of the home sales in our particular market.  I can honestly say that two years ago I had no idea of the definition of a short sale. Today...

Bank owned homes are usually an awesome deal. These are homes that have already gone thru foreclosure and the bank now owns them. The Bank had to pay a tremendous amount of money to foreclose on the house as well as they have all the mounting expenses and headaches associated with a portfolio of vacant homes, where they are making no money on them as they sit there vacant. The Bank is a a motivated seller! When making an offer on a pre-foreclosure it could take as long as 6 weeks to 3 months or more to get a response on an offer and be able to close. You have be be very patient and have a pretty open time line on the date you have to move in when considering a pre-foreclosure. With a bank owned home, your realtor should get a response from the Bank a lot quicker than that. It's best if ...

                                        Thinking of doing a Short Sale in Apollo Beach? Let me first apologize, as this is my first time writing a real blog, and I am quite sure it will show. I am not a lawyer, nor a CPA and recommend you speak with both if you are considering any and all options that I am about to outline. I am a  Tampa Realtor and consider myself a Tampa Short Sale Expert and they seem to have taken over my life, as there is probably not a hour that goes by that I am not talking, typing or working something Short Sale.
