I highly doubt the market will be crashing anytime soon, but there is a way to sell your florida house fast for cash. You can call the "We Buy Houses Florida" companies such as The Sell Fast Center at or if you're in the New York market, you can use a "We Buy Houses New York" company at .

You will get a fast cash offer if you call them or email them with your property information. Might as well give it a try.

Contact a local attorney to go over your situation with you and suggest what options you have. Most of the people answering questions on this forum are real estate agents and we cannot give legal advice for the obvious reasons. Good luck, I hope things work out for you. ... more

In Brevard County, there is the Melbourne International Airport which is a small airport that only runs Delta and US Airways flights. But, its very quiet, they have some very courteous attendents and it provides a comfortable flying experience, but you do pay for their small size. Orlando International (depending on where in Brevard County you live) can take 50mins to maybe 34/40 mins. Orlando International is very large with a hotel build right into the middle of the terminals, has tons of flights at any time with ranging airfare.

The beaches in Melbourne, the same story. Depending on where in the county you live it takes about 5-15 mins to get there. Even if you have to go over the causeway (bridge) to get beachside.

Hope this helps!

So far you've received two good responses ... It takes time.

The reason why it takes time.? ..

Lenders have never carried enough manpower (or spent the money) to cover large car auctions, boat or yacht short sales or foreclosures, let alone having the foreclosure figures double .... 1988 or 2008 it makes no difference, unless you know "somebody" nothing has really changed - same long time frame for foreclosures.

You can always get an attorney, but that never guarantee's anything except paying two people instead of one for the same results ..

I've been to 50+ closings .. and closings can get organized and can get done inside of a few hours if everything is done correctly .. if things get bottled-up you can wait an extra 5 or 15 days on a regular closing (it's almost common) so keep in mind there's other issues here ... there is no "non-compliance", the property is involved in a foreclosure.

That said ... I would nicely get in touch with the listing agent and find out what is going on, they might also connect you to the lenders agent, and I would nicely do a timeline with them and see what "could" be an approximate closing date and stay online with everyone on a daily basis ..and more than 2 calls a day doesn't hurt ~ "if" you do it nicely and you're calm.

You'll get a lot further with a small bottle of honey than 55 gallons of vinegar in a case like this ... patience is a virtue here.
