Emerald Coast, Florida Foreclosure Facts

Foreclosures occur when property owners default on their mortgage payments. If the homeowner cannot pay the outstanding monies owed to the lender, then the lender, usually a bank, can seize the property in order to sell it. These foreclosed homes are often sold at auction and consequently, can represent excellent value.

Things aren't always so straightforward however, and the process of buying a foreclosure can be rather stressful. Properties are often sold 'as-is' and there may be issues with existing liens. If you are interested in seeking a Destin, Florida foreclosure, be sure to seek up-to-the-minute advice from a local property expert.

Destin Short Sales

Short Sales differ significantly from foreclosures. These types of property sales happen before the home or condo actually goes into the foreclosure process. With a short sale the owner, in order to avoid foreclosure, sells the property for less than the outstanding amount remaining on the mortgage.

Some great deals can be found this way, but the process can be extremely lengthy and involves considerable cooperation from the mortgage lender. Some banks, keen to offload unwanted inventory may act swiftly while others may draw the process out, as they consider their options. After many months, the hopeful buyer can often find that their offer has been rejected. Again, use a local property professional to help steer you through the process when considering Destin short sales.
