Short sales have a stigma for taking a long time to complete, but that is typically because of incorrect or missing paperwork. An experienced real estate professional can help eliminate those road blocks and get you in your new home faster.
Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
The Holloway Group, the leading Knoxville real estate team at Gables & Gates, REALTORS is assisting a client in the short sale of their Knoxville home for sale at 695 Oak Chase Boulevard, Lenoir City, TN 37772 in the Avalon Golf Community.
The home is less than 5 minutes to Farragut, TN and 10 minutes to the Turkey Creek Shopping plaza. The Avalon community features easy access to the interstate so it is only a short commute to private schools like the Webb School, Concord Christian School and CAK (Christian Academy of Knoxville). The prime golf location allows you to walk out the back door to the 12th green of the Championship 18 hole Avalon Golf Course. On site amenities include a golf clubhouse with pro shop, bar, and grill and a separate clubhouse with swimming pool.
What is a short sale? It is when a seller, who may be facing the threat of foreclosure enters into an agreement with their bank/lender to accept a price for their property that is less than the amount they actually owe on it. The seller makes no profit on the sale but avoids many of the problems that would come from a foreclosure.
Some of the seller's possible advantages with a short sale are the avoidance of the time consuming foreclosure process, and the prevention of the negative impact a foreclosure can have on their credit score. In a short sale situation, the seller and the bank/lender work together to determine the details of the agreement, but typically sellers who complete a short sale can avoid owing the balance due. The obvious advantage to buyers is the prospect of moving into a property at a great discount.
So why would a lender accept a short sale if they are losing money? By accepting a short sale, banks/lenders don't have to worry about dealing with the long, expensive foreclosure process. Priority #1 for lenders is to try to get their money back, and they typically want to avoid taking responsibility for selling a home. Statistics show that a bank/lender will net more from a short sale that they will from a foreclosure, so short sales can be a good thing for a lender.
