Your best bet to hire an agent and your condo will be all over the internet.
More than that: we usually advertise our listings within our client database and sometimes it's the best as we are working with investors a lot here in S Fla.
Good luck.

Save answered: is based in South Florida and will list your property on MLS and hundreds of other web portals worldwide. They use the latest smart technologies, like blockchain, automated market analysis, and more, allowing their clients to save time and money.

They work for a nominal fee which the seller pays ONLY IF the property is sold. So their sellers have nothing to lose and save at least 3% on every transaction--sometimes even more!

Their automated process allows you to put up your property for sale in a few easy steps and lets you create professional videos, photos, and 3D tours. Their technology allows them to reach a larger pool of potential buyers and opens up the opportunity of international buyers by translating listings to other languages.

Maria Cipollone answered:
Short sales are a complicated and time consuming process. If you really have a hardship, tell your real estate agent to get more offers on the table, higher than the asking price, therefore, the bank can accept and approved one. The bank will start the short sale process only after received an offer that will be close to the numbers that they already have.

Best of Luck,

Lewis Berkowitz answered:

Your realtor told you $60k was the current value, why would you offer $70K? This is not a used car, where you might pay a couple hundred more because you like the color. Even if they accepted 70K, what would you do when the appraisal comes in at 60k or 62k? Your lender will only lend on APPRAISED value. I think your time would be better spent finding another property. ... more

You are correct Michael, I think an appraisal will give you the truth. I had one short sale a couple of month ago where the buyer submit an offer and the bank came back asking $20k more. The buyer submit a higher offer but at the same time he did an appraisal and the appraisal came lower than the original offer. The buyer made an addendum reducing the price to the appraisal value. Short sale was approved and closed. ... more

There are many lender/investors that could possibly own the loan in question, but only one set of guide lines the loan was originated with. The guide lines or agency like Fannie that the loan was constructed with will dictate who and how it may be resolved. If you want to find the investor you must send a written request with authorization to release information signed by the borrower to the servicer requesting the information. Depending upon the servicer the borrower may have to make the request directly and I do not believe the request can be denied by the borrower. You must also find out from the servicer if the loan had mortgage insurance. If the loan was constructed with MI you will need to request there information too. The investor may own the loan but if MI is involved they will likely have the last word to approve the MI claim. Is this property a short sale, foreclosure, or just abandoned property of interest? I have been licensed for 20 years in Palm Beach County and specialized in distress resolution for the last 6 years. Aside from my Real Estate experience I owned a mortgage company so I am very familiar with lending as well as distress resolution. Please contact me so I can get clear picture if the circumstances. The more I know the more help I can be. I am working on a short sale for another Agents listing now. He is not experienced and turned the transaction over to me. We were able to secure a short sale approval in a fraction of the time he spent plus $38,000 to the seller for his cooperation. distress resolution takes skill, diligence, and most if all cooperation and patience from all parties involved. I look forward to hearing from YOU!

Who on your behalf is handling your attempt at short selling your property? Is it a REALTOR and/or an attorney that is in touch with the servicer of your mortgage? I ask because that is to whom you should be directing your questions and concerns. ... more

donnaattuscany answered:
I am in a situation where my hours are being cut. If I transfer to another state for the same company I have a better chance of not loosing pay and health insurance.
If I move first I get settled and get my hours but I cannot afford the place I am living in now and a new place. I could rent cheaper in the other state.
I would have to miss payments on the home my husband owns and possibly foreclose if I just took off to the other state. If I list it for short sale I cannot pay both places. Should I buy a place first then short sale and have my husbands property foreclose?
Could they come after the new place that I have moved to? It would have to be a cheap property I don't know if I have enough to buy it
Would they put a lean on MY new property even though it was my HUSBANDS property that would be missing the payments?
Could they come after my salary even if it was my husbands property?
He is disabled so they can't go after his paycheck.

Hi L,
You were working with the wrong agents. You need to work with an experienced local broker who can guide you along the way and provide you information and assistance through each step of the process. I closed sales from $14,000 to $1,200,000 and had fun doing it in every price range. Please let me know if I can help you further.
