As one of the nation’s hardest hit areas by the housing slump, Florida has more than its fair share of short sales and foreclosure homes. Purchasing Florida Foreclosures and Short sale houses can be a bigger hassle than purchasing traditional real estate, but it also represents an opportunity to get an excellent deal. With the high number of foreclosure homes in many Florida metro areas, it is inevitable that during your home search you will run across foreclosures and short sales.
The term foreclosures can refer to several different types of properties. Under some definitions, foreclosures are simply homes in default, where the owners are behind on their payments. Under most definitions Florida Foreclosures refer to houses that have already gone through the foreclosure auction and are now owned by the bank. These properties can be REO homes or HUD homes.
Short Sales are properties where the homeowner owes more than the current market value. These properties were typically bought or refinanced during the housing boom. The home owner still owns, and has title to the properties, but in order to sell, they must get approval from the bank. In a short sale transaction the bank will reduce or forgive a portion of the debt to allow the sell of the property. Because Florida short sales require approval of both the sellers and the banks, short sale transactions can be very complicated.
