I am a Qualified Buyer and I Want To Buy A Ventura County Short Sale Property. Why Is It So Difficult?

The Best Short Sale Agent in Moorpark, CA, The Best Short Sale Realtor in Moorpark, CA, The Best Certified Short Sale Specialist in Moorpark, CAVentura County CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Daniel. Here was his question.

"I am trying to buy a short sale property. I put my offer on the property a few months ago. The property was priced about 50% lower than the other homes in the area.

The bank finally approved the short sale. However, they said that I have to pay the back taxes, unpaid homeowner's association fees, and the seller's closing fees.

I agreed to do that because the home was such a good deal. However, now that I've agreed to that the bank won't get back to the agent.
Now the agent is saying that they won't approve the sale price even with my paying all of those costs. I don't understand what is going on? Please help. Daniel."

Here was our answer to his question. Daniel, it sounds like you are frustrated. Here is the reason that your offer is not being accepted by the short sale lender.

You mentioned that the house is selling for much less than other homes in the area. It must be worth more than what you offered. Otherwise, you wouldn't have been willing to pay for all of those other costs.

The bottom line is that bankers are not idiots. They have a number of different things they check before they approve a short sale. One of those is the fair market value of the home.

They will usually order and appraisal to check the value. It sounds like they took a second look at the appraisal and realized that the home was selling below market value.

If you really like the home, then you can see if they will accept an offer closer to the appraised value. Or, keep shopping for another home. Thinking about a short sale?
