As of today, this home is still pending. I would be happy to help locate other similar homes in Aloha if you are interested. I live in Aloha, and I know this area very well. Short sales are definitely for the very patient buyer, but if you are that buyer they can also be a great deal. They typically sell for much less than if the same home were in a non-distressed situation. I have other clients under contract for short sales currently, and I work with them often. Please let me know if I can help you in any way.

There are many nice homes in this price range that are not short sales. I'd be happy to help you find the right one for you.
