Hi Mike,

This is my listing in Admirals Walk that you're asking about. The rules do not permit me to discuss the terms of the contract, so I cannot answer your question directly. Because it is a short sale, the seller's lien holders must approve the sale and contract terms. This process typically takes up to 2 months. The seller does have a local attorney that has a good track record for successful short sale negotiations handling the short sale negotiations with the lien holders for this particular transaction.

I find it interesting that another agent commented here that they know the contract is solid when they are not a party to the transaction and I have not discussed the terms of the contract with the agent.

If you are interested in Admirals Walk, I do know of 2 other 2 bedroom/2 bath listings that are currently on the market. They are "regular" sales. The listing agent has had difficulty getting access to the units because of lack of tenant cooperation, but it appears things are now being worked out so that the units can be shown later this week.

Admirals Walk, for various reasons, does not meet the criteria for lenders, so all current purchases are cash buyers. If you'd like access to Admirals Walk condominium documents, newsletter and other information, the association web site is:

Please contact me directly if you'd like more information regarding Admirals Walk and/or my listing there. You can give me a call or email me thru my web site.

This property is scheduled to close 9/21/12. It is at the bank in the process. The contract is solid, it is in the banks hands, the outcome will not be known for a while. There are other units available in Admirals Walk. I would be more than happy to show you those properties. Please let me know if I can help.
