Just Sold Our Investor This Short Sale For $390,000

There are some really good deals out there these days, especially when it comes to short sales. {Short sale is when the property is now worth less than the seller paid for it, therefore if the seller tried selling the home to pay back the mortgage loan, he would be short. Hence the name “short sale.”} Most of the time the bank will approve the home owner selling the home for less than they owe, but the bank has to approve of the offers that come in. This process can take months & months. But if you are patient.. you can end up with an amazing house for cheap cheap! This is exactly what our investor client did.
