Hello Bobby, short sales in this market, and in that price range, tend to get multiple offers. If you like it, chances are someone else does too. This type of property tends to attract investors as well. They typically pay cash so this may be the case. Banks tend to try and reduce their losses as much as possible. There are other ways to eliminate those closing costs and HOA fees. I would be happy to discuss this with you. I have been selling homes in this area for 15 years.
Feel free to give me a call anytime.
