I will add to what Patty said.....a quick analysis of Comparable properties in Sun Groves are closing at
Low $71.70 PSF, Average $76.16 High $81.02
Some listing agents will price short sale listings below comps to generate an offer and stall a potential foreclosure such as this is, but the bank will want the best comp price they can get and will often counter with a higher number after the buyer has waited 2-3 months for a response. Additionally, this property has 2 loans which complicates things since the fallout rate of short sales is very high.
Just some food for thought.
I will work with an agent later on for sure , but before I fly to AZ, I would like to do a lot of work myself like : To know where I should buy , How should I hold the property, get my mortgage pre- approved, find the best PM , talk to couple of agents and find whom I feel comfortable with . Then I will fly there and buy . I don't like to waste the a lot of other people's time and don't give them business.
