Arizona Short Sales
What are Arizona short sales and should I consider them?
Arizona short sales are like other transactions in many ways. Let’s focus on the differences between a regular real estate listing and a short sale listing.
A “Short Sale” is when a homeowner and a bank cooperate and agree to sell a piece of real estate for less than what is owed on the lien or mortgage. Usually this takes place when there is a good reason why the current owner can’t continue to make the payments or pay the difference between the mortgage and the selling price. Why would a bank take, as a payoff, anything less than what they are owed? The same reason credit card companies do, some money is better than less money down the road. If a bank were to say no to a Arizona short sale and decide to play hardball, their only other recourse would be foreclosure. This would mean:
1. More time not getting paid.
2. A house that is empty and not being taken care of and possibly vandalized.
3. Lawyer and trustee fees
4. Holding cost to upkeep the property
5. Closing costs, and they still need to pay the Realtors, title agencies, cleanup crews, rehab costs, etc.
Arizona short sales can be a big no-brainier for banks, however, some banks get the concept better than others and try to streamline the process. While other banks bury their head in the sand and foreclose. Obviously, we don’t see the entire picture. I’m sure banks have their reasons for not doing Arizona short sales. Even with streamlining, short sales can take months to get approved as the bank must qualify the seller for the short sales, approve the asking price by getting an appraisal, and dot all the I’s and cross the T’s. Not all Arizona short sale agents are the same. Call us at RCP.
How to Sell Your House Today
How to Sell Your House as Fast as Possible
If you are looking to sell your house as fast as possible, here are a few ways and tips to accomplish your goals.
Step #1: Find out what your house is worth and at what price to sell your house. Call an appraiser, or better yet, call us! We won’t charge you.
Step#2: Tell your appraiser or agent you want a very short marketing time. Marketing time has an effect on value. For an extreme example, let’s say you have a house that is worth $100,000 and you listed your house today at $45,000 requiring a cash closing by the following day, you would probably receive multiple offers and could close within 24 hours. Now, that is a bit drastic, but you can see the point. If you need to sell in seven days, tell your agent or appraiser to value it accordingly. Your home’s estimated value is always based on some expectation of marketing time. Usually a typical and reasonable marketing time is 0-90 days or 90-120 days, so you should sell your house at that value in that time frame. If your agent doesn’t understand this concept, get another agent.
Step#3: Find a real estate company that has the marketing know how to accomplish the sale in the prescribed time frame. RCP can help! We will take it from here. We can sell your house.
