Lucky for him, I was very familiar with area because I have lived and worked in the Viera, Suntree and Rockledge areas for the past 13 years!
Anyway, to make a long story short… He wanted a great deal on a short sale. We looked at lots of properties, several really attractively priced. We found one in a neighborhood of $300,000 -$400,000 homes.
I knew this neighborhood as I knew folks who lived in the neighborhood. I recommended we offer about $190K. His response, not a great deal. We parted company.
The property closed last week for $210,000. I do not know if we could have gotten the house for $190,000 but we never tried.
