If priced right, it'll sell in a few hours. If not, it'll sit for weeks or months.

Did you list it yet?

HI, I would like the opportunity to work tih you! Short Sale is most likely your best option and I can help. Please come by the office at Z House Realty Group, 422 S Alfaya Trail, Orlando FL 32828 and ask for Tanya Donohoe. Give me a call or text before heading over at 407-615-2863.

I work with excellent Short Sales specialists at Title Co's and one thing that's important is you check with your Lender to see if you qualify for the HAFA program. Don't let this opportunity pass by you. Get that short sale going before the end of the year. I also live in Waterford Lakes so we can meet anytime.

Julie Wright answered:
I have done many short sales, and they have all differed in length of time. However, I can say that the average time on the market lately has been around 3 months once the contract has been signed. Several factors play into the process including the number of mortgages, which banks are involved, how many liens are on the property, etc. It's also important that your listing agent follow up daily/weekly on the progress of the short sale. This can make a huge difference in the process!!! ... more

In simple terms it means the homeowner owes more on the house than they can sell it for--as such the lender must be willing to take less than the amount of the loan. It is the step before foreclosure. ... more

Homes in your area are selling from 70 to 90 dollars per square foot. Condition and upgrades will determine which homes are closer to 90 per square foot.

Javier Rodriguez answered:
It sounds like investor do not want to sell because maybe they are better off claiming insurance, but the way we handle this is to go back to negotiator and tell him or her that seller does not have any funds to cover this debt and therefore the reason for short selling the home. We have this situation happened several times in the past and we have been able to significantly reduced the amount.

The last resort that we used is that we ask buyer to bring funds to closing or else we sell to someone that is willing to do so. When you inform a buyer that you are forced to sell to someone else, most times they bring the funds to the table.

Feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

Yes you can down size at any time, is the market going to be kind, maybe not. Put you home on the market first before you get hopes of buying. Have a Realtor give your present residence a CMA, see if this amount is something you can live with, if it is not, stop, you need not put you home on the market right now. Once you decide if you want to try and sell your home at the fair market price recommended, decide what you rock bottom is for selling your home, if you get to this point, you may decide to stop and continue no further until market conditions improve. But lets say you get a CMA you can live with and list with, lets say two months later you get an offer very close to asking and also very acceptable to you. The home sells, you pay off obligations and pocket the rest, not you are off to find your new home, you will not have long before you have seen some great homes that fit your need both in looks and price! Good luck! ... more

Hello Pavs 82

You asked:
I am the seller of a short sale contract currently under review. What happens if I can't make the HOA?

Worse case scenario: The HOA can put a lien and foreclose in lieu of the mortgage.

You also said: It has been over 2 months since short sale contract was signed. Bank is still reviewing it for approval.

Through the process of short selling your property the bank (servicing lender) will have to negotiate through this default. In my experience, some banks pay 6 to 12 months of what is owed of HOA deficiencies.

Please understand, all parties, you, buyer, real estate agents, title company, HOA’s, Tax assessor office all agree to a settlement or do not agree. It all in the negotiations.

You also mentioned that: your broke: So what’s to worry. Let the short sale play out.
