I seem to be as specialized as anyone. I've worked them both on the listing and selling side and have had success with both. It really depends on the bank, the borrower, and the buyer if the sale will be approved.

I disagree that shorts sales are common and I also believe that they are a waste of time. You can get better deals in this market by the following:

1. the 60 days you have to wait to hear from a REO, you could have made 2 or 3 better deals with a property that has been on the market for a long period of time. Any realtor can help you drop a crazy offer.

2. You are attempting to make a deal in a house covered in a cloud of bad energy, don't be surprised when it rubs off. Personally I stay away from these for this reason entirely.

3. One way to get a deal is dropping a hand written note on ANY house in a neighborhood you want to buy that says "my girlfriend and I want to buy a house in this neighborhood and yours looks cute from the outside. Do you know anyone that is looking to sell?" I always get responses, better prices and positive energy into the home.

Since you are in Buffalo I am going to assume that you would like to buy a short sale property. Since short sales are so common now most of the agents know the ins and outs of doing them. They can also do a specific search on the MLS to find them.

There are a lot of great agents in Charlotte that contribute to this form. You could do a member's search under Charlotte to find them.

Good Luck!
