Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to answer your questions. A good Realtor should always educated the buyer in buying process .. I always provide comps and any other relevant information so that the buyer can make a good decision. The comps may or may not help you ; the banks will have their own comps ..
If my client understands the sometimes long process in buying a short sale and they are 100 % committed to the property .
I have many step that I perform in order to get the bank to reconsider their price if you can justify and I mean justify a different price.
The norm is to stay within a 1 mile , depending on the property uniqueness..
