How long does it typically take before I Can Own a Home Again?

Hello everyone, I am Toni Patillo with Keller Williams Realty in Santa Monica, California. Today I would like to talk to you about how long it typically takes to purchase a home after completing a short sale with a Santa Monica short sale agent. First of all, it is important to choose the right Santa Monica short sale agent for the job. You want to choose someone with experience who can get the job done in a timely manner.

So, once you have chosen the right Santa Monica short sale agent for your home, they will help guide you through the entire short sale process. Since a short sale has less of an impact on your credit score and credit report than a foreclosure, you’ve made the right decision financially. While, you still may have to wait two to three years before purchasing a home again, it’s better than the average seven years people typically wait after completing a foreclosure. Again, if you have chosen the right Santa Monica short sale agent, who has the short sale experience, you should be in a home as soon as it’s possible to do so. Santa Monica short sale agents have a way of making everything work out with a goal of getting you back into your own home as quickly as possible. I’m Toni Patillo, with one of Santa Monica’s leading short sale teams, and we’d love to work with you. Please let us know if you have any questions and we’d be happy to meet with you and find out if we would be the perfect Santa Monica short sale agents to work on your short sale transaction. Thanks a lot and we look forward to speaking with you soon.
