South Florida Real Estate Happenings

Why did she cry?

I've been working with a young family who like so many have come across tough times unable to make ends meet to make their mortgage payment.  We listed their home for sale and pretty quick we received an offer on their home as their home is lovely. It was a Short Sale and I submitted the Short Sale package to their Lender, Bank of America, at the end of August and on October 27th received written approval from them. I was very pleased with the prompt approval from BOA! I had to go back and forth with BOA to gain approval but no problem as that is part of what I do as being a Realtor who specializes in Short Sales here in South Florida. I go back and forth until I get an approval.  

The point of this post however, is that when I called the Seller and told her that her Short Sale was approved, she cried. And.....to top it off it was her Birthday! Goosebumps ran up and down my arms. She said to me that this is probably the best birthday present that she can remember and it was cause for a celebration.

I know there is a lot of talk that a Short Sale being approved really isn't time for a celebration yet Sellers who have experienced such hardship and choose to view it as a positive outcome really can celebrate. So I guess you'd say that they're viewing their situation as being thankful, that they can now move forward looking forward to much brighter days. So yes, a Short Sale can be celebrated as my homeowner did that day.  They have a lot to be thankful for and will survive. After all, there are a lot of people who have things much worse to contend with.
