Standard Sales- A Breath of Fresh Air
This may sound odd but in the past 2 years of my Real Estate career, I've been dealing mainly with short sales and REO properties in the Orange County area. Recently, I've been seeing more and more standard sales popping up out of no where. I feel like homeowners with equity are feeling more comfortable and are more willing to sell. I have 3 properties in escrow right at this moment and they all happen to be standard sales! Oh I can't express how great it feels to be dealing with the actual transaction the good ol' way. Dealing exclusively with the selling/buying agents and buyers/sellers is really the way it should be. I can't complain because I spent the past couple of years dealing with banks, loss mitigation departments, negotiators, and nothing but 3rd party people which I am very grateful for because it has taught me patience and I just learned a lot about the how things are done at the banks. Not to say that this is going to end any time soon but I really just wanted to voice my opinion on how seeing and dealing with these standard sales are truly "like a breath of fresh air!"
