It’s baby chickens!!  With a short sale, you never want to count your chickens before they’re hatched.  The bank has to approve the offer.

Will buyers jump up and down when they see this beautiful back yard?  Or will they shed a tear?  The sellers are tired of us grilling them about cleaning up their yard.

Occupied, Not Vacant

Messy short sale home.

messy cluttered chaotic piles of stuff junk kitchen short sale Phoenix Arizona home house real estate photo

This home was occupied while it was up for sale.  This is not an abandoned home.  The sellers lived here like this.

It went up for sale in August.  Some brave buyer wrote an offer in September.  And then waited and waited and waited for the bank to approve the short sale.  It finally sold in May.  Eight months later.
