Homes For Sale in Tampa FL

Purchasing a foreclosure is certainly different from purchasing a traditional home for sale. Bank owned homes are sold much at a price much closer to the market value of a traditional purchase than many people think. This changes as the banks get increased inventory of foreclosed homes on their books. Most of us in the business have witnessed this change in mood in the past. It is not uncommon to see banks lower the price of a home several percent every couple of weeks until it sells when banks have a large inventory of foreclosures.

Easy to deal with? Banks are not as easy to deal with as the traditional home seller. Let's face it they have all of the money are are probably not experiencing any of the pressures that a traditional seller may be. For example the banks may show a home and dictate in advance when they will be viewing offers and making a decision. The banks may also tell you how and on what forms you must apply to purchase the home. We have seen just about every scenario you can imagine.

Short Sales

Short sales are not foreclosures. They are however a great opportunity at times. Once again when banks are not getting inundated with short sale applications, deed in lieu applications etc. the banks are less likely to let a home go below market value. Those distressed sellers who apply for bank assistance with their sale may have to pay income tax on the forgiven debt. This was waived for a time back in 2008 but definitely discuss this with an accountant if you are considering short selling.

As a buyer expect a short sale to take anywhere from 4 weeks to nearly 6 months. Also definitely do not purchase a short sale or foreclosure without a thorough inspection being performed no matter how good the property looks on the surface. Look again as closely as possible right before the close because the seller is likely short on funds and occasionally right before the close you can get further concessions from the bank depending on the banks inventory of homes in distress.
