How to Buy Provo Utah Short Sales?

Many buyers want to buy Provo Utah short sales. Unlike in a foreclosure, the bank does not own the property in a short sale. However, because the bank must approve the sale (because it is the lender, not the seller, who will be taking a loss on the property) it will seem like the buyer is purchasing the property from the bank. Short sale transactions, however, can be much more time-consuming and patience-testing than bank foreclosures.

If you are patient you will be able to find and purchase a PG Short Sale. Paul Teasdale of Team Teasdale Realty has sold hundreds of short sales in Utah County. Paul knows how to find and purchase a Provo short sale for you.

In some ways, buying a short-sale property is just like a traditional purchase. However, there are a couple of ways in which the purchase agreement are different. The contract will specify that the terms are subject to the mortgage lender's approval. In a normal transaction, the only party who would need to approve the sale is the seller. In Utah we use a short sale agreement as part of the real estate purchase contract. This will help the buyer understand the terms of a short sale.

The contract should also state that the property is being purchased "as-is". While it is acceptable to include language in the contract that allows you to back out of the deal if an inspection reveals considerable problems, in general, you should not expect the bank to lower the price to account for repairs if any problems are revealed. The bank is also unlikely to make any repairs, and the seller, being strapped for cash, is probably even less likely to help out. It is best to negotiate a purchase on a short sale in Provo with the home as-is. Don't expect the bank or the seller to make any repairs they neither party likely will.

Provo Short Sales

Provo Short Sales occur when property values drop or inflated appraisals were obtained, making the property worth less than the amount of its mortgage. This means when a seller enters into a purchase contract to sell for an amount that is less than the home’s present mortgage balance, if the seller isn’t bringing in money to close, the lender must approve the short sale. That’s because the lender is taking a loss.

Generally, short sales are not bargains for a buyer. It doesn’t mean the buyer is purchasing the property under market, and it can take a long time to close, if it closes at all, among a host of other reasons. Not all lenders will approve a short sale, and many short sale prices that are advertised are not real prices. They are guesses at what it takes to sell the home.

If you make an offer on a Provo Utah short sale property, be prepared to wait. Paul has seen short sales in Utah County take between 1-25 months to be approved. The average time for a short sale to be approved in Utah County is probably 4-6 months. Many agents may claim a quick 2-3 months but this is a best case scenario. Banks are notorious for taking as long as several months to respond to short sale offers. Remember, there is no guarantee that the short sale will go through so be patient. Paul will take the time to explain the short sale process every step of the way.

Banks have been speeding up the process of approving the short sale process in the past two years. The approval process was once terribly slow. In fact, I had one short sale home for sale in Mapleton Utah with Wells Fargo Bank and it took them 25 months to approve the sale. However, our team had a short sale in Provo that we listed and it took 40 days before we were closed. This was from start to finish. Short Sales are going much faster.
