Short Sale Fail - A Series: Intro

Short Sale Fail – A Series on Questionable Things I Run Into With Short Sales: An Intro

I daily run into behaviors, responses from “experts”, forms required by “experts”, etc. – things that make me scratch my head when I am working with short sales. Not always are these things that I run into worthy of an entire blog post but I figured I would create a series to at least allow for brief posts discussing/presenting these things.

This is a series that I will revisit as time permits that is good information for both Buyers and Sellers in considering the short sale process. Short Sale Fail obviously suggests that I will at the very least bring into question some of the practices, forms, designations, etc. discussed.

Please touch base if you are considering buying or selling as a short sale in the Boise area.  I help folks in the entire Treasure Valley including Boise, Meridian, Kuna, Eagle, Star, Nampa, Caldwell and surrounding areas. John Boles208.830.6185
