Hi Avi, 60-70% of our deals are short sales. Yes, it can take up to six months, but if you are patient and have time to wait, it may be worth it because thatâ€™s where deals are. The good news is that lenders are now more willing to accept short sales thanks to new legislation requiring lenders to accept short sales, deeds-in-lieu and loan modifications in lieu of foreclosure. The key is to work with a realtor who can identify short sales in which there is control and follow-through on the process. If you would like to know of available short sales in Coral Gables, please do not hesitate to contact me.
