Our Short Sale happy endingWe have put an offer on this house in January 31, 2011 that has been on the market since August 2010. At that time, we were told that it's been pre-approved for a short sale by the lender. We were still warned by our agent about the length of time to close on a short sale and being first time home buyers (with a limited time frame as our apartment lease ends by end of April), we really had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. On March 7, 2011 our offer was approved by the lender, we offered at asking price and we did not receive any counteroffer. We asked for a 30 day closing and on April 8 - we got the keys to our new home! I don't think it would've been possible if not for all the hardwork of the people involved - the seller's agent (most especially), our agent and lawyer. We've been told that our particular case was quite rare so I just wanted to share this story. I just hope that all short sales (or all transactions for that matter) were as smooth sailing as ours.April 13 2011 - Sayreville22YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
