We have request almost daily for a list of short sales and foreclosures in our area, How do I find them?
Most short sales are listed by real estate agents. You will find these listings on local web sites and in the MLS. Some lenders have complained about advertising that identifies the home as a short sale, because the lenders feel it puts them at a disadvantage when it comes to home pricing.
They are right. A buyer generally offers less when it's advertised as a short sale.
If you have access to search terms like this one www.searchdestinhomesandcondos.com , first look where the term short sale appears. It might be under "status modifier" or it might be contained in the marketing comments. Choose that field as your search term.
Read the listing carefully. Agents slip in words that identify the listing as a short sale. But remember you need to know the following information.
Subject to bank approval.
Is it a Preforeclosure
Has a notice of default been issued
Bank time to respond.
Preapproved by bank.
Headed for auction
If you have legal questions, please ask a lawyer for advice and guidance.
