Another Porter County, Indiana Short Sale SOLD = 90 days from for sale sign going up to signing the closing documents.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

nother NW Indiana Short sale Listed By F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate and SOLD Recently we SOLD a home In Porter County, IN  that we listed subject to lenders approval of a short sale.

Short sales are not a game.

There were back up offers on the property.

The Buyers with the 1st offer submitted were savvy enough to do ALL of their due diligence according to the contract terms and conditions mutually agreed upon BEFORE the short sale was approved.

Short sales are bittersweet.

We have become much more select at which sellers we will work with to list an Indiana  short sale property and which buyers we will work with to show a Northwest Indiana short sale property.

Extensive interviewing goes into the decision process so we have the best chances of getting deals done! 

Uncooperative sellers or fickle buyers only make for experiences which will be passed along to friends and relatives who become "experts" in their own mind, because of "stories"  they have heard :)

Hasty and sweeping generalizations about short sales are, by definition, illogical.

We glady accept back-up offers on our Short sale listings -> Sale pending does not mean SOLD.

If you are considering buying a short sale, give us a call to discuss at lenght the risks of this non traditional type of Real estae transaction. Some Short sale Buyers are Missing the Boat so to speak. Or,  if you are behind on your mortgage payments give us a call to see if selling your home with your lenders approval of a short sale is an option to consider?

Hello Jennifer - thanks - we've been blessed to be able to help some in these situations.

Hi Tom - short sales are alot of putting out fires lol figuratively speaking - more difficult and now for some reason longer- HAFA and EQUATOR in our opinion has lengthened the process which is a contradiction of what they were intended to do?
