Short Sales in Brevard County Florida–Patience and More Patience!

There were 147 short sales that closed in Brevard County during April 2011.   Of these, seventeen were in Rockledge, Viera, and Suntree – my areas of concentration although I work throughout Brevard County.

The average days on the market for these 17 short sale properties – almost 134 days! That is just about four and a half months!

This just reinforces my admonition to short sale buyers – patience!   Of course, when you are involved in a short sale the time really crawls!

Even as a real estate agent working with buyers time crawls!  I had a negotiator tell me today that the deal I was getting antsy about had only been in the works three months – not four as I had thought!

If you are considering a short sale purchase, be prepared for the wait, maybe even six months or more….…

Imagine watching an entire professional baseball season one pitch at a time!
