Great question, my answer, don't fret, heres why. Short sales are not normal sales, they take a very long time and there are no guarantees that the bank will approve the deal for various reasons. Most buyers are not in a position to wait around to find if they will close on a home, its not a stock, its your way of life and most people need to plan. When you sign contracts on a normal transaction you know that you will close within 30-60 days or even less if its cash. This means that short sales are NOT a reflection of the prices here. Case in point, 16 Bridge recently closed for $440,000, the same unit 16 Leeward (see above) sold for $337,000 but was a short sale. If appraisers have enough comps within the last 3 months of "normal" transactions, they will exclude short sales from their report. Over time, this is exactly what will happen here, so my best advice to potential buyers, if you are in a position where a short sale might work for you, better take advantage now before its too late. And if your selling here don't worry about short sale closings, its just a trend right now but won't be in the near future. Until next time...
