Eagle ID Short Sale Properties

eagle-home-13_400Eagle Short sales are approved by banks by agreeing to take less than what is owed to avoid the foreclosure process, which can be very expensive and time consuming.  By accepting an offer before the foreclosure, the bank can cut their losses and not have to spend additional money on taking the property back, maintaining it, and paying taxes and insurance until it is back on the market as a bank owned foreclosure. Banks are usually more motivated to agree to a short sale due to the time and expense involved in the foreclosure route.

Buyers can capitalize on these short sales if they have done their homework on the market value, the current condition of the home, the estimated cost of repairs, and the potential for future appreciation.  However, there are other factors that can make a huge difference in short sale negotiations that have to do with the seller.  If the seller is not in default (late on payments), if they are considering bankruptcy, or if there are multiple lien holders this can potentially derail the short sale process.  Other critical elements for the potential approval by the lender are the offer is not ridiculously low and the seller is experiencing a real financial hardship.  One of the reasons the short sale process may not always be successful is that the process can take several months- the buyers may give up and move on to a different property or the home could actually be foreclosed on due to the scheduled the trustee sale.
