Upside down Hilton Head buyer

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Distressed Properties

We have a guy that likes to buy short sale homes and villas.  Properties that are upside down means you owe more than your property is worth.  This is a cash buyer.  If you need to move fast, or behind in payments, near foreclosure or bankruptcy, you may not have to hope and pray for someone to come along to solve your problem.

This guy is buying upside down homes and villas.

It will cost nothing to sit down and learn the short sale process and see if your property fits his criteria.  You have nothing to lose.  My direct line is (843)842-0805.  If your property is not currently listed, we will meet together with our buyer to see if this meets the type of property he is looking for.  Thank you.

Foreclosure is NOT the answer!

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Hilton Head Main

Right now, distressed sellers should choose a Short Sale over foreclosure.  Given that South Carolina is a recourse state, distressed sellers or property owners that are under water with their mortgage should consider taking action now.  In Florida, Wall Street Journal reports that some banks are going after sellers that may have had their homes, condos or second homes foreclosed upon.  In fact, there are now investors buying up these deficiency judgements.  The key for distressed sellers is that in a successful short sale negotiation it is possible to convince the lender to give up their pursuit of the deficiency judgement against the property owners.  Here are some other reasons to consider a  Short Sale vs. Foreclosure.  If you  would like for us to answer your questions or better explain the process, please email us at robbie@robbiebunting.com or call me direct at (843)842-0805

Short Sales vs. Foreclosures on Hilton Head

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Distressed Properties, Market Trends and Information

I believe short sales are misunderstood and under-marketed.  For some reason the majority of buyers walk in or call us about foreclosures and never ask about short sales.  Seems to me the benefits of the short sale out-weight the faster closing foreclosure in many ways for all involved.  While short sales in the past got a bad rap, when we put a negotiator into place we are now 90% successful on closing our short sales.

Due Diligence and property inspections on Hilton Head Island

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Distressed Properties, Hilton Head Main, Market Trends and Information

Although some properties today are selling “as-is” usually there is some time frame that Hilton Head sellers will give a buyer to complete a property inspection.    While property inspections cost about $500 dollars depending on the size and type of property, they are well worth this out of pocket cost for the purchaser.  Within a few days the home inspector will send via email photos and detailed information about the property that helps a buyer understand their new property and may identify any areas that may require more review.

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Distressed Properties, Hilton Head Main

We have used everything including facts, humor, time lines, fast talking, slow talking, explaining the rules up front and for some reason nothing has worked, yet!  The next time we have a buyer for a short sale we are going to have them take this test.  The results will reveal their tolerance for patience and we than will know what is expected of us.   In order to add some humor to these challenging sales we have noted a few rules below.

High Voltage real estate sales for Hilton Head properties

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Distressed Properties, Off Topic Hilton Head Area

Multiple offers on Hilton Head Island.

If you are a Hilton Head buyer or seller you need to know that we just sold a villa over asking price and had 3 offers on a home listing.  In fact we had 3 cash offers over asking price on one of these properties.  By the way, this property was not a short sale or foreclosure and was priced over a quarter of a million dollars.  It was far from an easy layup.  In fact, for the first 3 days after adjusting the price and before our second marketing blitz started…nothing happened on this Hilton Head property.

Be the first to comment on this post Categories: Communities and Areas, Distressed Properties

Dear Clients, Friends and Fellow Associates~

The market is getting better every day.  As the market makes the turn, we have properties carried over that did not sell.  These properties include homes, villas and lots around the Island that were quite simply, overpriced.  Some of these properties are now offered as short sales, a few are foreclosures and others are offered by realistic sellers.  The one common factor is they all now offer “final clearance sale pricing and everything must go”!

Listed below are the current foreclosures on Hilton Head Island.
