For those that dislike to do Short Sales...I'm here to tell you I do too! It's a lot of paperwork, time spent on phones and a LONG tedious process to get from start to finish.
There are exceptions though. I had the pleasure to work with a fine upstanding family who wanted to do the right thing. They had no choice but to list as a short sale after finding out through an independent appraiser that their home was not worth what they bought it for in 2007.
And there are the exceptions for those servicers at the borrower's lending institution who go above and beyond to help get the transaction through quickly....that make it an actual pleasant transition. I had the pleasure...this time...to work with great team players.
From start to finish....this short sale took a whopping TWO months and THREE weeks.
Hawaii Home Buyer | SOME Military Qualify for Extended Tax Credit
The Home Buyer Tax Credit ended on April 30, 2010 but there are some "Qualified service members" (which means a member of the uniformed services of the U.S military, a member of the Foreign Service of the U.S., or an employee of the intelligence community) that may still qualify for the extension of this Home Buyer Tax Credit. Qualified service members who are ordered on a period of official extended duty are extended for one year. For these home buyers, the tax credit applies to sales with a binding sales contract in place on or before April 30, 2011 and closed by June 30, 2011.
