As Steve mentioned, prices for short sales are not fixed until the bank says "yes." Unfortunately, our market is plagued with an abundance of short sale listings that are well below what a bank will actually accept for a property.

We are having significantly more success writing offers on foreclosed properties rather than the short sale listings. Here are some Cape Coral foreclosure listings to review:

Good luck in your search!

Hi Linda,

That house is a short sale. The short sale process is a difficult one and the banks have to approve the sales price. Many agents under price their short sale properties to get buyer's interested only to have them fall apart because the bank will not accept the low sales price. I have cut an pasted the history of that listing below. As you can see it was listed at $149,900 on 9/8/08 and it has been reduced to $119,900. It is currently undercontract probably waiting for the bank's approval. If you have any further questions please call or email.
