Take the money, forget the short sale

As the deadline approaches for the expiration of the Home Buyers Credit, do you find yourself still messing around with a short sale? A short sale is like fool's gold.

I talk to agents every day and the stories surrounding short sales are nothing if not frustrating and tedious. Forget running an agent into the ground with a short sale, you, the buyer, should be excited when moving into a new home and if there was ever a way to dissipate that excitement it's by getting yourself wrapped around the axle with a short sale.

It's funny how the media portrays the short sale and foreclosure market as a cornacopia of great deals. Sure, there are some below market situations out there, but unless you are a professional investor or "flipper", its really not an avenue you should pursue. Trust me. Here's my take.

Get out this week, NOW, and find yourself a great house that you are excited about. CALL AN AGENT TODAY and get a house under contract that will close in time to take advantage of the credit. $ 8,000 can go a long way toward making it the dream home you have always wanted.
