Are you waiting or thinking to send an offer on a short sale in Chicago, Chicago suburbs or Chicago North Shore?

 

Chicago Short Sale BrokerAre you considering to short sale your home in Chicago-land ?

The most important thing with a short sale in Chicago is patience, and all the parties involved to be on top.

Ask the questions; many things can go wrong.

  • how many loans are on the short sale ?
  • is the short sale approved or preapproved ?
  • what is your experience with your last short sale transaction ?
  • are there any incentives ?
  • what is the time frame for a successful outcome ?
  • what can go wrong ?

 

 

 

One of my biggest disappointments with a short sale in Chicagoland, was when a seasoned agent was way too confident. We all know about over promising and under delivering .... His statement was, "you do as I say and everything will be fine" At the end we gave a full offer and he was so wrong, everything went wrong.

In one instance the investors did not accept a generous $300,000 offer and after a few unsuccessful negotiations, they settled for less then $200,000 a year later.

If you are considering going the short sale route, do not wait too long. If you have been contacted by an agent about a pre approved short sale the whole process may be much smoother.  

 

Buying a short sale? Be patient and ready to move on.
