The Seventh Common Ventura County Short Sale Misconception: Banks Want The Homes To Be Priced Reasonably.

Ventura County CA – I'm writing a series in response to a number of big misconceptions I saw on a personal finance website online.

We are on our final myth from what I saw in an article about short sales on a popular personal finance website. The writer claimed that in order for your home to qualify for a short sale it must be priced "reasonably."

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

It is obvious that the writer knows very little about short sales. I can tell you from personal experience that the banks don't care about whether or not the price is "reasonable."

They order a version of an appraisal before approving a short sale. If the home is selling for the appraised value, then they will approve the short sale. If it is selling for substantially less, then they won't approve it.

No bank has ever asked me if the price was "reasonable." They just want to make sure it is selling for fairly close to the appraised value.

I think the point the article write is trying to make is that the home can't be priced substantially under the fair market value. Some short sales do sell for less than the fair market value.

In fact, some real estate investors have setup entire businesses dedicated to buying short sales under the market value and then reselling them for profit. I don't condone or condemn such practices.

I condemn the banks that allow it to happen. The banks are the ones with incompetent systems that allow that to happen. I don't recommend that you short sell your home to a real estate investor.
The short sale is much more likely to fail. The real estate investor is not trying to help you. They
 only want to buy your home for as low of a price as possible in order to ensure a big profit. Thinking about a short sale?
