I had expected it earlier on in the year, but I am not surprised. Those that are Short-Selling now are likely those that have been sitting and not paying for quite some time. Now they may figure would be a good time to sell. They've held out long enough.
As a Realtor, I'm happy to have more listings. But, quite honestly, I'd been enjoying the writing offers and taking listings on Standard Sales these last few months.
But, it is what it is.....and we help people in every Real Estate position they are in.
Here's to hoping the act doesn't get extended again.....and, here's to hoping this mad dash to get it done before the end of the year brings a new home to one of my buyers!
