The Sarasota Real Estate and surrounding market, once dominated by foreclosures and short sales, have all but dried up from the market. Most all sales are normal meaning they are conventional sales with out any bank involvement on the seller's side. While the foreclosure and short sale property will be in the market from the foreseeable future, they are playing a less dominant role then they have in the past. Offers on distressed properties require bank approval for a sale. Expect to have a home loan approval by a local lender up front. If you are paying cash, you will need an account statement showing you have the funds to close. The banks will outright reject offers (even full price) without the correct documentation. Conventional sales are now requiring the same documentation by sellers. We have local mortgage specialists that have demonstrated their knowledge of the Florida market Based on our experiences, we strongly urge you to consult us prior to committing to a lender that may be out of state or from the internet.
