How To Buy A Short Sale Home and Still Keep Your 1st Time Home Buyer Credit!

I recently sold a home ... on a short sale ... to a "First Time" Buyer Couple!  This couple wanted to qualify for the First Time Buyer Credit and they wanted to get the "Good Deal" Of A short Sale! 

I posted a blog about this a couple days ago ...   Why Would a Agent "NOT" Want To Share Financial Information On Her Short Sale Listing?  

How?  Make sure that you are the 2nd Buyer to submit a An Offer!

  • We looked at all the homes on the market in the neighborhood that they liked!
  • I interviewed all the listing agents.  I knew what each home offered and how saleable it was for a reasonable "short sale"!
  • I educated the buyers so they really knew what they were looking at!
  • We wrote the offer the agent needed ... after 4 months of negotiating with the Seller's lender ... to make the sale work!

We received Short Sale Approval for this buyer in less than 5 days!   The Buyers are Happy, the Sellers are Happy, the Listing Agent is Happy and I'm very happy!I
