The Villages is not immune to having Foreclosures,Short Sales and Bank Owned homes. The villages is after all filled with residents like myself. In other words old enough to have seen several swings shall we say in the housing market. I myself have purchased several distressed properties for re-sale and once even short sold my very own home.
The Villages Fl is one of the best if not the best place for anyone 55+ who wants to be around like minded people. However whenever you have a community larger than most cities in the United States you are going to have some homes go into foreclosure or short sale if the owners are wise enough to seize the opportunity. There are not many of these homes which become available. In the previous year only 21 were sold with those classifications. A small percentage of the 1,326 total sales in this community. If those 21 sales foretell the future then the amount may be on the rise.
We represent both sellers, and those wishing to purchase bank owned homes or pre-foreclosure homes such as short sales. In the state of Florida no bank I have ever heard of will allow a owner to short sale a home without the use of a Realtor. There are many reasons for this including more complicated paperwork and schedules as well as the transaction is often emotionally charged. A Realtor representing the buyer should be automatic when you consider the seller is paying them in this state. Just make sure you get a professional experienced one. If you deal with us, we all have passed the Fl Broker exam and are either Broker Associates, or the Broker of Record who runs the office. You will not deal with any sales agents, just us.
