There are multiple factors that can prolong a short sale transaction.   Recently we closed on a property in NW Indiana that was subject to lenders approval of a short sale(Schererville,IN 46375)  AND also subject to Bankruptcy court approval of the sale of the property.   To date, this is our longest short sale ever = 3 months and 13 days from accepted offer to closing. Lender approval time was double what Indiana law HB 1359 allows (requires an answer in 30 days). Seems that laws passed to help expedite short sales have little or no effect on the lenders and that they take even longer nowadays than before in the approval process! Perseverence on the part of the listing agent and patience on the part of the buyers, cooperation on the part of the sellers are some of the key ingredients t...

Back up offers in Real Estate - we've blogged about this topic before - we encourage them as   Sale Pending does NOT mean SOLD!   In this Market anything can happen, so we encourage the Sellers of our Listed properties in NW Indiana to keep showing their property to prospective buyers even after they have accepted an offer to purchase. Just this week we Closed a Real Estate Transaction on a home for sale in NW Indiana that was the 2nd in line or back-up offer ! It's like an Insurance Policy to fall back on in case "something" unexpected happens along the 30 to 60 day road between what looks like a great offer "on paper" and the actual written words from the lender/underwriter stating something similar to "we are clear to close this transaction, all conditions have been met - please forw...

 Yesterday, we CLOSED on a HOME we Listed For Sale in Schererville, Indiana less than a month ago! The Day we Listed This Property,  we gave the Sellers a " To Do List ' of suggestions or TIPS specific to their HOME to help create optimal showing conditions. We agreed to hold off on setting showing appointments for a week, to give them time to declutter and prepare the home for potential buyers to see. You only get a First Impression once :) During that week, we were busy creating GOOGLE JUICE for this listing by syndication to various websites and Internet Marketing to the masses, as well as telephone & email matchmaking efforts to our sphere of influence and professional collegues :) Calls started coming in a few days later to schedule showing appointments in advance and by the First ...
