Short sales are a huge part of our area’s current listing inventory and sales statistics. They’re difficult transactions and time consuming. They require specialized knowledge and dedication to the task in order to be successful. They also require impeccable business practices and an adherence to the highest of ethical standards.
The business of real estate … and more specifically at this current time, the business of short sales affects everyone. Not just current homeowners, but home buyers, home sellers, renters. Everyone. We all are touched by housing prices, banking practices with regard to home mortgages, interest rates, etc. I’m sure it comes as no surprise to realize that our economy is hugely affected by whatever is going on in the real estate market.
Short sale listings and purchases will continue to be part of our local economy for another few years. As I write this post on September 17th, I can see that of the 497 active single family residential listings with Auburn addresses, 138 of them are short sales! Almost 28%!
If you need an agent with unparalleled business standards to help you with the process of a short sale … or just to talk through your options should you be facing an inability to make your current mortgage payment for whatever the reason … please don’t hesitate to let me know. I’ll do whatever it takes to be of assistance to you.
