Portland Short Sale Homes: Pre-approved Short Sale! $234k in Clackamas just Off Sunnyside!

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

A pre-approved short sale!  (What does that mean you ask?- Read further below).  In the meantime, a GREAT HOUSE at a great price!

  • 2337 sf / 2.1 bath
  • 4 bedrooms w/ 2 car
  • 2003 / backs to greenspace
  • 15477 SE Thornbridge Dr. Clackamas ML# 9049856

So what is a pre-approved short sale? It means that the seller had an offer, the listing agent worked their butt off with the bank to get it through, the bank finally processed the offer, did all their broker price opinions, accepted the offer, etc. and then the buyer walked (likely had already found and moved into a home because it took the bank so long to respond). So THE GOOD NEWS- Another buyer like yourself can slide in where that offer left off, basically “take cuts in the line” and purchase at the pre-approved price. (if you think you can offer less than the pre-approved short sale amount you will likely find your self at the end of the line with a several month wait)

Short Sales & Bank Owned in Happy Valley Oregon

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

Both my husband and I are realtors specializing in the Happy Valley area… short sales and bank owned is a way of life on the grand “Hill of Views”.  It’s no surprise the Happy Valley has established a reputation as Hill of McMansions, Short Sales and 1/2 built homes.  They over developed, the economy turned, and now there are an abundance of great deals for those who are able to invest. 

Good News?  GREAT deals to be had. Anything around (more…)

Happy Valley – What is Up With Those Short Sales and Bank Owned Homes Anyway?

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Happy Valley (Clackamas area just outside of Portland, Oregon) has created quite a stir for those buyers looking for a lot of square footage, new construction, a great deal, and maybe a view. It wasn’t long ago before our real estate debacle that builders were racing to build extravagant homes on the grand hillsides…. Now, they are desperate to sell them. Happy Valley is now overwhelmed with bank owned homes, short sales, and homeowners trying to sell at the same discount prices as their neighbors; quite frankly it’s a mess. For the home buyer it’s a super clearance sale at Macy’s. (more…)
