South Florida Real Estate Happenings

Young family buys a Short Sale here in South Florida

I represented Buyers here in South Florida who wrote a Short Sale sales contract at the end of October and we had a successful closing today with no headaches along the way. Yes, it's true....a smooth Short Sale.  They happen more than you think. If you beleived everything written on a Short Sale you'd think they never close. 

Today, I had the pleasure to represent Buyers in a Short Sale purchase. I routinely represent Buyers and Sellers here in Coral Springs and the surrounding towns. These Buyers were lovely Buyers. What fun to help a young family search for their first home. What did these Buyers get out of their Short Sale?


  1. A well cared for beautiful single family home in mint condition. Yes, again contrary to what is often written, many a Short Sale are in excellent condition. This home was spic and span clean!
  2. Their offering price was for $170,00 but they paid $168,000 due to the Buyers appraised value coming in at $168,000 with the Sellers Lender agreeing to the reduction. Most such situations that I have experienced where the appraised value comes in lower, Lenders have agreed to reduce to appraised value.
  3. First time home Buyers tax credit; a great savings.
  4. Joy, complete Joy!
