What must an investor know if they’re using this investment as a long term strategy?
Short Sales Take Time and Patience
With short sales, you want to be able to find the right house whether it be a rental or a purchase. The most important thing is you must have patience; this is not a quick process. A short sale is still owned by the homeowner, who owes more on the mortgage than the home is worth. Therefore, with short sales, you have be confident that the 3rd party (the bank) is going to give you the price they want and when they want to close.
The name "short sale" can be deceiving as these deals can drag on for months. Whether an investor has cash or needs to get a mortgage, it doesn’t really matter in a short sale. Entering the Federal Home Administration [FHA] program might help the buyer and seller by speeding up the short sale process, but it still will take awhile.
Foreclosures Have Advantages
On the other hand, purchasing a home in foreclosure can be an easier transaction because the bank just wants to get rid of the home. It may be useful to have cash. An investor can negotiate closing costs and price in foreclosure sales as compared to short sales.
The Advantage of Having the Same People Buying and Managing
Problems and surprises can arise when two different people are handling the buying and managing of a short sale or foreclosure purchase. It makes sense to have one professional to handle both the buying and managing of the property.
