Marathons and Short Sales - Similar Beginnings, Similar Endings

It seems to happen routinely although not as often as it seemed a couple of years ago.

It seems that the buyer on a short sale decides to walk away.   After waiting months for a decision, impatience wins, and the buyer walks.

I heard this week that most marathon participants give up somewhere around mile 20 or so.  Out of the 26.2 miles, even many who have trained for years, reach a point of stopping - giving up.

Short sales are not as physically demanding as a marathon.  But the short sale race begins much the same way - enthusiastic, optimistic, ready for the long haul. 

But the enthusiasm wanes with each step along the way to the finish line at the closing table.
