Along comes a seller who wants to price their home competitively.
Why would a seller have to explain that the listing is not a short sale? Because buyers on a strict schedule (relocating due to a job transfer, kids have to start school, etc) need a firm timeline.
They can’t wait the two, three or six months to maybe get a short sale offer accepted! In this market just because the price is attractive does not mean it is a distressed seller!
Purchasing a short sale requires flexibility. If you have, then consider a short sale or a bank owned property. If you need to buy now, and move next month, skip the short sale!
