Are you interested in Cape Coral short sales? Want to hear the truth about them?
Do you and/or your agent understand them?
One thing that I think is VERY important is to note the source of the information you find.
How many short sales has this agent been involved with? How many have actually CLOSED?
Getting bad advice is possible so you need to understand where this information is coming from.
Would you take advice about building wealth from someone currently in poverty? No, of course not. Then why would you take advice on short sales from someone who has never closed on one?
As of today, 626 residential short sales have closed in Lee County since January 1, 2008. The average days on market was 145. That is from list date to sale date.
I pulled out a ranking report ~ by agent ~ by sold counts as listing agent ~ sorted by # of closed listings.
I rank #5. Susan Milner of Florida Future Realty: #5 in residential short sales closed out of our entire MLS for this time period of Jan 1, 2008-Aug 28, 2008. 2 of the agents listed above me are brokers and take credit for every sale in their entire office. I am also the broker at Florida Future Realty but I do not take credit for my agents’ listings. The rankings were all my listings. A couple of them were referred by agents in my office but I was the listing agent.
So, being ranked #5 out of a total of over 5,000 agents in our local board of REALTORS I consider myself a good source of information on short sales.
Do I claim to know everything about short sales? No, of course not. But I would be a better source of information than someone who has never handled a short sale through to the end.
Everyone’s situation is unique to them and a seller should seek the counsel of an experienced attorney and/or tax accountant to make sure that a short sale is their best option.
Often times these agents and/or you, their customer, do not have all of the information or knowledge to make an informed decision about short sales. Before you make a decision do your homework.
If you have a question about selling your house as a short sale or a question regarding purchasing a short sale, please give our office a call. We are here to assist you with your real estate needs. Having the added experience with these short sales gives us an advantage in assisting our customers with their short sale buying or selling needs.
We also handle bank owned properties. Often times these homes are priced so well that buyers are experiencing multiple offer situations and the properties typically sell for higher than list price in these cases.
We price our short sales correct with the market. This provides a much higher likelihood of the short sale being approved and it provides for an easier process for all involved.
