If you’re a regular reader you may have already read about the Cold, Hard Facts in Home Selling and the Cold, Hard Facts in Home Buying.  Today, I’m talking the truth about selling a home as a Short Sale. Honest. Brutal. No sugar coated tales. Just facts, 20 Cold, Hard Facts about Real Estate Short Sales.

One of the 20 Cold Hard Facts:

Know the local distressed Real Estate Market - Whether a home is a Short Sale or traditional sale, Real Estate is always local.  You may not know your local distressed market, but make sure your hired Real Estate Agent does. It’s critical to know how to position a home for sale in a local market, more so than ever, with a Short Sale. Time is not on your side with a Short Sale and you must get the home sold. A Short Sale should never expire. There must always be a strategy for getting it sold. What happens if no offers come after a few weeks? A Real Estate Agent better know what to do.

Click through below to read the remaining 19 facts about Short Sales and please consider sharing so the facts get well known.

The Inaccuracies of Zillow Explained
Most real estate agents understand how inaccurate Zillow can be when it comes to some data including their "Zestimates" of value and displaying homes for sale that are not available or never will be.

I have put together a compilation of posts from some top real estate bloggers who have written about this topic over at +Storify including +Tom Horn +Karen Highland +Kyle Hiscock and +Debbie Drummond.

If you have not used Storify before I would highly encourage you to check it out. It is a fantastic site for content curation.

#realestate #zillow  
If you are not familiar with Zillow they are essentially a syndication service for real estate listings. Zillow does have some very nice features on their site however there are a few things that are misleading to consumers including homes not actually for sale and their Zestimates of value.

You will be surprised when going into Hopkinton Drug if you are expecting a typical drugstore. It is far from that! I would call it a specialty store that has a wide variety of items including a great selection of greeting cards, nick nacks, magazines, as well as snack items.

As a Realtor myself, I know what to look for in a top notch real estate agent. Lynn has all of those qualities including drive, honesty and knowledge. Having known Lynn for the last few years it has been great to work with her on a couple of referrals. In fact one recent referral is still in the process of working with her right now and has nothing but good things to say. If you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in the Coral Springs area make sure you give her a call.
