There are many things to consider when choosing an offer. First, you have to see to it that the buyer is eligible and are able to finance your short sale well. You cannot always pick the highest offer and end up feeling tricked when your buyer will not be able to finance your home.
It usually takes 30 days for your short sale to be approved. Once it expires, it needs to be renegotiated and would again take 2 to 6 months. It is much better to choose a price that is less but with a stable financing. You might want to request a copy of the pre-approval letter from your buyer.
Make sure that you were able to scrutinize the pre-approval letter. We experience one event wherein the short sale buyer’s agent, short sale loan mortgage broker, and the buyer’s lender is just one person.
In Florida, this is illegal. It cannot be done that the real estate agent and mortgage brokeris the same person or within the same company.
Another aspect to consider is the demands of the buyers. Can you meet these demands? Do the buyer want furnishings and complete kitchen appliances?. Make sure to choose a buyer where you can meet its demand.
You can choose an offer that has the best qualifications, of course.
