Greenville SC Short Sales and Short Sales for Sale in the Upstate
Short Sale Homes for Sale in Greenville SC Area
Short sales create an opportunity for buyers to get a great deal but please note that when buying a short sale, the home buying process takes longer to close compared to a traditional real estate transaction. Before you jump and decide to buy a short sale property you should at least know what a short sale is.
Short sales are usually initiated by indebted owners whose home values have dropped by 20% or more. They get permission from the lender that holds the mortgage to execute a short sale selling the home for less than the amount owed to the lender. This transaction benefits the lender and the indebted homeowner. The lender can avoid the expensive and time-consuming repossession of the property whereas the seller can avoid the negative credit ramifications of foreclosure.
Short sale transactions tend to be lengthy and paperwork-intensive. If you put an offer on a short sale property be prepared to wait. The short sale process can sometimes take up to a full year. This is because you are negotiating both with the seller and the lender that holds the mortgage. You will negotiate first with the home seller and then seeks approval on the purchase from the lender. Even if the seller has accepted your offer, you do not have a deal until the lender accepts your offer.
If you found that your dream home is listed as a short sale or you just want to get a good deal, go ahead but be sure to exercise caution. If you don’t have the patience and a thorough understanding of the process, you may want to think twice about making an offer on a short sale home. Yet, short sales can be really a good deal if closed successfully. That’s why it is important that you choose the right agent with substantial experience in dealing with short sale transactions.

My husband and I met with Michael in mid-December, our house went on the market January 16th and was under contract January 19th. Michael and his team are amazing at what they do and did everything could to help us. We were out of our old house and in to the new one within a month of our house going under contract. I would highly recommend using the J. Michael Manley team for buying and/or selling. They made the hassle or buying and selling so easy and everything was very smooth.
Anna Catron made the home buying process painless and incredibly easy. We couldn’t have handled being first time buyers without her expertise and kindness. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.
I would highly recommend the J. Michael Manley team for any and all real estate referrals in the Greenville area. As a fellow agent referring very close friends of mine, I wanted to make sure they’d be taken care of well, and J. Michael Manley assured me they would receive his team’s very best service. He did not disappoint. My friends were delighted when they found the home of their dreams, which was new construction, and J. Michael Manley was able to negotiate the price down plus add in so…
We began working with Donald in early July, 2016. Today, on 10/24/16 we closed on our home in Greer. Donald kept us current on market trends here, even though we were living in Florida during most of the property search. Donald was never too busy to return our calls or emails and he met us several times at the home we were buying in order for us to get estimates for future work to be done. He guided us through the entire process with his calm, focused demeanor. He has been a pleasure to work …
Reviewing the market from Columbus Ohio, I was contacted by Anna Catron with an invitation to provide support based on my schedule and needs. Over the course of 6 months, we periodically touched base. There was no pressure or commitment, just a desire to provide support and knowledge of the area. Anna was a resource beyond purchasing a home, as we decided to rent for 6-10 months. (she provided some names of contacts to reach out to for rental properties). Her “no pressure” approach was…
I worked with Jon Lyles and he was so helpful! He explained things so I could understand and did all he could to make the buying process easier.
Anna Catron did a great job helping us find and buy our new home. She’s a pro and saved us money!
Anna Catron and Chelsea Jackson from the J. Michael Manley team of Keller Williams were awesome to work with. They were both extremely willing to work around our needs, and introduced us to a house that was perfect for us. If you’re looking for a new home, I’m fully convinced there is no better team of agents to work with.
