Gina - they may have been talking about a "bridge loan" (also known as an 'interim loan')

A loan that "bridges" the gap between the purchase of a new home and the sale of a current or existing home. The current home is used as collateral and the bridge loan is used to pay closing on the new home before the current home is sold. ...

They were once popular in a market where it was advisable to purchase the 2nd home, prior to selling the 1st. They're no longer that popular, as you might imagine.

Good Morning,

As a realtor here in Miami, and working the Palmetto Bay area, I am not quite sure what you arel looking at, therefore not certain what it refers to and would not want to give you incorrect information. I would be happy to look at where you are seeing this referenced and would then be able to properly respond to your question. Please feel free to contact me either on my phone or by email.

Good Morning Jeannette,

Making an offer on a short sale property can require a great deal of patience depending on who the lender is on the property. Some lenders process the short sales within a 30-60 day timeframe, while others can take 90-120 days, if not more. Each lender has their own processes and timeframes. In addition, if the home you have made an offer on, has more than one mortgage, it then requires the approval of both lenders.

Staying in touch with your realtor and having him/her stay in contact with the office handling the short sale is crucial. Sometimes it requires following up with the lender every week to make sure that all is progressing forward. Sort of the sqeeky wheel gets the oil thought.

Good luck and of course be patient, it really can be worth the wait.

Hello Sarah,

This home like many now in the process of foreclosure can be empty for quite some time before it is listed on the market for sale. This particular home is currently in foreclosure, but has yet to be fully foreclosed on.

If you are looking to purchase a home in Palmetto Bay, you are best suited to find a realtor that can work with you to find what it is you are looking for. A search can then be set up for you with your search requirements and as property appears on the market you will be one of the first to know.

Please let me know if you would like any assistance.

Thank you,
