Short Sale Lexington, SC

Last year I had clients wanting to buy a short sale home. The contract was ratified mid July and we finally heard from the bank after my clients had given up. They had waited close to 4 months. My client selling his home in a short sale has been assured by his bank that they can give an answer back to the buyers in less than 30 days. What a difference a year makes! Completed short sales in the first half of 2009 was up over 208 % over the first half of 2008. Banks are understanding that the foreclosure process does not bring a higher price than a simpler, less costly short sale.
