Telling a potential Santa Clarita short sale client what they want to hear?  Now I have heard everything :)   That is not the best way to conduct business.  Short Sales are tricky and if the debt forgiveness act is not extended this coming November 13 during the next session of Congress - there may not be much benefit in having one negotiated on a short sale sellers behalf.

We have had a few calls as of late, we have had our short sale meetings, but most are on hold waiting until the Lame Duck session of Congress convenes to discuss the potential extension of the "debt forgiveness act".

Not all of our recent short sale briefings ended up in with the short sale sellers wanting to wait.  There is a great chance this will be extended - with a few congressmen pushing for it - I'd think it probably will.  However, to keep our short sale sellers safe we have an extra addenda we included with the short sale contracts to have the potential buyers sign.  If the seller changes their mind after there is an executed contact, the buyer will allow the seller to cancel after 48 hours of notice is given to the buyer(s) from the seller(s) in writing.

At the end of the day, it is a short sale sellers choice to short sale their home or not.  We cannot have anyone thrown under the buy in order to make a commission.  It is the right thing to do and I am glad our real estate team has been so forward thinking in the Short sale representation process.

One of our recent short sale inquiry calls was about current short sale numbers.  The caller asked me, "How many short sales are currently on the market for sale in the Santa Clarita Valley?"  Here is what I told him as of Today - November 2, 2012:

  • Castaic has 42 Short Sales
  • Canyon Country has 84 Short Sales for sale
  • Newhall has 31 Short Sales listed
  • Saugus CA has 63 Short Sales that are active
  • Valencia CA has 102 Short sale listings
  • Stevenson Ranch CA has 28 Short Pays for sale
  • Santa Clarita proper has 68 Short sales

These are currently active short sale property numbers.  They are showing on the Master Database and Multiple listing service as active short sale listings.  Make sure you are getting the help you deserve with your short sale needs.  Contact a Real Live Short sale team with a proven track record of short sale wins for their short sale clients.  Be Safe - talk soon.
