Foreclosures in Fort Lauderdale

Foreclosures differ from short sales in that Foreclosed properties or REO (Real Estate Owned) properties have been foreclosed on by the lender(s), the property is vacant and the lender is now responsible for the maintenance and taxes on the real estate property.  Negotiating on REO foreclosed properties is typically easier and banks are usually quicker to respond to offers to purchase often within 24-48 hours of receiving the offer.

Fort Lauderdale Short Sale Inventory is drastically shrinking!! There is much talk about Short Sales in the real estate community, many properties are offered for sale thru a short sale and not everyone fully understands what a Short Sale actually is.

Short Sales in Fort Lauderdale

"Short Sale" is when the owner of a property is no longer in a financial position to continue to make the monthly payments to the lender, negotiates with the lender for approval to sell the property to a new buyer for less than what is owed on the loan. It is often referred to as a pre-foreclosure.

In a normal scenario, the owner would simply put the house or condo on the market for sale, pay off the loan and that would be it. Unfortunately, with the soft real estate market, a stressed economy and the sub-prime mortgage debacle, instead of appreciating, properties have declined in value to the point that they are no longer worth the price originally paid for the property.

Selling a Short Sale Property

If you are a seller considering Selling a property thru a Short Sale, you should first consult an accountant and a real estate attorney to see if this is the best course of action for you and to learn the possible ramifications involved in selling thru a short sale. You will need to contact your lender to see if you will qualify to sell your property thru a short sale. Finally, select a Realtor experienced in marketing and selling short sales.

Plan ahead as most lenders will require the following documents:

  • Most Recent (2) years tax returns
  • Letter of explanation and the nature of your hardship
  • Most recent (2) pay stubs
  • Most recent (2) bank statements
  • Letter of Authorization (if using a third party to acess information)
  • Estimated HUD-1 (Settlement Statement)
  • Copy of Listing Agreement
  • Copy of Contract and/ or Offers to Purchase

Buying a Short Sale Property

If you are considering Buying a Short Sale property, you should seek legal advice.  Select a Realtor and Closing Agent experienced with Short Sales and expect the process to possibly take as much as 4 months or longer and there is no guarantee that your offer will be accepted, even if you offer full listed price. Furthermore, at any time during the process, should the seller file for bankruptcy protection, the short sale may be cancelled immediately.

Although you will execute a sales contract with the seller, it is the lender(s) who make(s) the final decision. There is no guarantee that your offer will be accepted by the lender(s). You will want to have your financing already in place and provide an approval letter with your offer or proof of funds if paying cash.
