This short sale, located in the gated community of Piedmont, hit the market on April 15, 2009.  It was under contract one day later and sold on June 30, 2009. There was only one loan through Wells Fargo.  It was a very quick process.  And the final sales price was $385,000, just $4,000 below the appraised value...$13,000 below list price. The sellers owed no additional money to the bank.  The buyers got a  GREAT HOUSE that others buyers may have avoided because of the necessary third party approval by Wells Fargo.  It really does help the short sale approval process to have a listing agent who knows how to get your listing APPROVED and SOLD.

What is fiscal literacy in Gainesville, Virginia?   As Realtors need to be so aware of how the world economic situation affects our buyers and sellers.  Rather than just showing buyers "properties to buy" it is time we begin to talk about interest rates, working with them on their budget and helping them find the home of their dreams without the potential of losing them in the future.  Educating them on how we got into this finanical situation is as important as the property itself!  I find my clients call me as "trusted" person they can rely on for answers, or even better, at least be the source for them by knowing where they can go to get the right answer.   I find today's savvy buyers ask a lot more questions and I need to be sharp when answering and not have that "deer in the headli...

Step #3 - Document, Fix, And Prepare   The number one mistake that is made when listing a short sale is the dreaded As-Is statement.  The number one reason why short sales fall apart is because the buyer walks either when the bank takes too long, or they get nervous and feel as if they are making a mistake.  A short sale is just like every other sale, it's just that the seller needs to get approval from the bank to short them.  Buyers should expect the home to be just as nice as any other home for sale.  A diligent agent will price the home according to it's condition and the time-line for which it goes to foreclosure.  This would mean that homes that are priced below market value are there due to the work and repairs that need to be taken care of.  In the even that the seller can not a...

Step #2 - Contact An Expert And Get Answers! Do not think that this is something you can do alone, and do not be embarrassed about your situation.  Almost half the homes with a mortgage have some form of delinquency on them.  There are many agents and organizations out there who are devoting their efforts to helping homeowners in trouble.  It does not matter who you contact...but contact someone.  This is not a promotion of our services...this is a plea to you to contact someone.  Many people advertise that they are short sale experts or that they are successful short sale agents - the most important thing is that they have an action plan, and that their first intention is to find a way for you to keep your home.  I have seen agents who advertise that they are successful short sale age...

If you turn on the radio in your car right now, you will probably hear three to four commercials an hour advertising services relating to credit card debt, or law firms advertising loan modifications.  Of course with all these services comes a fee...and who do you think is going to pay for that? Before you make that phone call know this.  In short sale situations, the sellers should not pay for the closing costs associated with the sale of their property.  No agent fees, no attorney fees...nothing.  At least that is how it should be.  If you short sale is handled the correct way, you should have proof that you do not have the funds to own the home.  In these cases, you the seller do not pay a dime to sell your home.  That is something that you have to seriously consider before you cont...

The Gainesville, Bristow and Haymarket area is a popular destination for relocating families.  On a map, the commute in to DC looks within an acceptable range.  Do an online search for properties and you'll find VERY reasonable prices.  What you don't read on some of these unbelievable prices is what is running through your backyard. The Gainesville, Haymarket and Bristow areas are home to many miles of railroad tracks.  There may only be a handful of communities where these tracks are running next to homes, but wouldn't you like to know that? If you want to know what neighborhoods would have potential freight train noise, work with a local Buyer's Agent.  It is a Buyer's Agents job to know what is happening within the four corners of any property you are viewing.  A great agent will kn...
