Current Foreclosures &
 Short Sales in Steamboat

Enjoy some "Black Friday" holiday real estate shopping with some of the best deals in the Steamboat Springs real estate market.  Below you will find a variety of homes, half-duplexes, townhomes and condominiums currently on the market.  These are all of the current foreclosed / bank owned properties, or are advertised as short sale opportunities that are currently available through the Steamboat Springs MLS.
A foreclosed property is one that is now owned by the lender.  Because the owner is no longer involved in the negotiation process, the purchase of one of these properties should be a relatively smooth process.
A "short sale" is a property that is still offered by the individual owner, but the owner is looking to sell it for a price short of what he/she currently owes on the mortgage.  Offers have to first be negotiated with the seller, then approved by the lender.  These purchases take more time to consummate, and at times can be frustrating, but can be done with a little patience and fortitude.
Should you find a property of interest, please click the More Info link after each property description (which prompts an email to me), then insert the property title and any questions you have, and I would be happy to send you the full listing sheet plus answers to your questions.
Foreclosure and short sale properties are a specialty unto themselves.  As an exclusive buyer broker versed in this unique process, I am here to lend my 25+ years of expertise to work for you.  While values abound in our market today, there is more value in engaging the expertise and negotiating skills of an exclusive buyer's broker - I specialize in serving the specific needs of buyers and am here to assist and guide buyers in every aspect of their purchase.

There is still time to locate, negotiate and consummate the purchase of a Steamboat Springs property before ski season gets totally under way.  There are some positive signs that the national real estate market is bottoming out, and if you caught my quarterly newsletter, the Steamboat market may also be at that same point.  If you missed it and would like to see what the market is doing, click here.
U.S. houme prices rose modestly in the third quarter of 2009 according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency's (FHFA) seasonally adjusted purchase-only house price index (HPI).  
Even Florida's existing home sales rose in October 2009, marking 14 months that sales activity has increased in the year-to-year comparison, according to the latest housing data released by Florida Realtors. October's statewide sales also increased over sales activity in September in both the existing home and existing condominium markets.
The USA TODAY newspaper had a recent second home article about Steamboat Springs being "More than a ski town".  To read the wonderful article, click here.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
