How long is forever?

Someone asked me how long a short sale takes to get closed.  My response was simply it could be a couple on months or forever!

And then the follow up question: “How long is forever?”

Short sales [where the selling price will be less than the monies owed and require lender approval] are protracted events.
  1. Having a real estate agent who knows the process, along with a title company that knows the process, is the place to start.  
  2. Having a buyer and a seller who both understand the process may take months is necessary. 
  3. Having flexible schedules is necessary. 
  4. Having a lender who is receptive to the process is necessary.
Selling your house or condo in Brevard County Florida as a short sale is more than putting a sign out front and a listing in the MLS system. 

You need to start with a real estate agent and company that will be your advocate. Century 21 Baytree Realty has those agents.  Call me at 321-693-3850 or email me. Prestige Title of Brevard is that title company.
