  • SHORT SALE & FORECLOSURE (REO)
  • WHAT IS A SHORT SALE & FORECLOSURE (REO)?In a short sale and a foreclosure, the selling price is below theamount of the mortgage. The property has thus a lesser value thanthe amount owed to the bank. Note that the selling price won’tprobably cover unpaid property taxes, closing costs or any otherfees related to the sale of the property.The main difference between a short sale and a foreclosure is thata short sale is sold by the owner with the bank’s approval while aforeclosure is sold directly by the bank. In a foreclosure, a judgetransfers the property deed to the bank so that the propertybecomes bank owned or REO (Real Estate Owned).
  • EXAMPLES OF SHORT SALE & FORECLOSURE MIAMI, FLORIDA $110 000 $165 000 $48 000 FORECLOSURE SHORT SALE SHORT SALE “WITH TENANTS” “VACANT” DANIA BEACH Monthly income: $2,400 MIAMI MIAMI BEACH Monthly income: $2,600 Monthly income: $1,1005 minutes from Hollywood Beach House + 1 apartment Waterfront condominium Total of 5 bedrooms and 3 2 bedrooms Duplex, 2 apartments bathrooms 1 bathroomTotal of 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms
  • LET THE EXPERTS HELP YOUAND AVOID THE COMMON PITFALLS
  • EASY: Depending on the sales price and location - especially in Miami - properties can span from lowshack to Ocean front condominiums to gulf course single homes or luxury Estates for a steal when thepurchase is properly timed and structuredDIFFICULT: Is the property a “normal” sale, a short sale or a foreclosure (REO)? Does the bank manage the closing for someone local or who’s out of state? In which processing stage is the selling? In a “Sells As Is”, 95 % of the time the purchase is nonnegotiable, under specific conditions and with possible restrictions to foreign investors This situation may be “irrational” as Bank Servicers do not know the property’s specifics andenvironmentHARD: When the buyer is a foreign financial or institutional investor who doesn’t realize the reality of thelocal market The “response” time is generally quite lengthy even with HAMP and HASFA deals! The average being from a minimum 30 days to over 3 months. Sometimes, 4 to 6 months to get a” No”or no response at all! Do not make several offers on different properties! You would be bond if the offers were to beaccepted
