Treasure Valley Short Sale Properties For Sale 10/10/18

As of 10/10/2018, there are currently only 3 listings in the Treasure Valley and surrounding counties in which we service that are short sales for sale.


In the Great Recession, short sales were in abundance here in the Treasure Valley and were our primary business. John became well-known as one of the top 3 short sale specialists in the Boise area and he had other agents referring their short sales to him because they knew that he would be able to negotiate properly with the banks to get the homes closed. On the buying end, I helped many investors and homeowners wade their way through the lengthy and often frustrating short sale process. But as the economy has grown, the housing market has stabilized and then appreciated, short sales (thankfully) have become few and far between.




Here are the 3 currently available short sales properties


Note: The above links are "live" links and so the number of homes may vary upon clicking on the link. The numbers I have given are as of my search right now, but homes are listed, go pending, come back on the market or go off-market regularly so these numbers will fluctuate and will be reflected as such in the live links to my website. 


If you are interested in a short sale property, it is essential that you have the representation of a Buyer's Agent so that you can have the most up to date information and the edge for offering on homes in this tough category.  

We can help you with that.

We have a very limited number of Short Sales here on the Space Coast as well. Based on the run up in pricing you have to wonder how the owners got a loan that would put them in a negative position!

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty we have seen people do crazy things with their equity - take out seconds, cash out refi, etc and then spent all the money (which makes it tough to claim hardship for a short sale), but you are right, I'm amazed there are any at all given we are in an appreciating market and prices continue to go up. Maybe situations where they purchased with low or no money down and then lose a job or have to move and can't turn around and pay costs of sale? -Kasey
