We succeed when others fail
Statistically, most short sale transactions never close. Many people and real estate agents blame their failures on the bank and, to a certain extent, they'd be right. But we realized a long time ago that the bank is never going to change... unless we make them.
The LAMB Group associates have developed dozens of strategies over the years to bring success to any type of short sale transaction - no matter how difficult it may be. Never let anyone tell you that it's not possible until you talk to us. In our experience, most every short sale can be closed. With enough dedication, experience, and cooperation, anything is possible.
Short Sale Listings
Attention Buyers & Investors: We list dozens of new short sale (pre-foreclosure) deals every month. We also have special access to foreclosures, REOs, and all types of bank-owned property. These sometimes sell for a fraction of market value before they ever reach the MLS. We distribute this information for free, as a courtesy to buyers and a service to our sellers. This database is updated daily and comes from the most comprehensive list of value priced homes anywhere. Stay informed on market trends or prepare to make a purchase, search on your own, or set up automatic alerts; it's your choice!
...can be found here first! We've focused a lot of our advertising efforts toward helping distressed homeowners. We offer homeowners a way to liquidate their home and avoid foreclosure, while offering you the opportunity to earn a profit while revitalizing a neighborhood.
What is a Pre-foreclosure?
A pre-foreclosure (or short sale) is simply a property with a mortgage that is nearing foreclosure. The owner has not been able to make the payments to the lender and so that financial institution has taken steps toward recovering the loss by foreclosing on the property. We work with the homeowner and the lender to stop the foreclosure, then with you to purchase the home at an amount usually less than the home’s previous purchase price. You can typically buy these pre-foreclosures at or below the market value of typical foreclosures but in substantially better condition.
What's the difference between a Short Sale Listing and a Foreclosure Listing?
Put simply, it's the auction. Some distressed homeowners do nothing and their home is auctioned on the courthouse steps after foreclosure. In most courthouse auctions, the mortgage is too high for an investor to be interested so it’s essentially bought back by the bank who foreclosed in the first place. This represents a typical foreclosure home. The sellers are then forced out of their home by eviction so they don’t usually go quietly and they’re not too careful as they move out their furniture. The bank has to spend thousands on obtaining and selling the foreclosure listings so they try to sell for as much as the market will bear. In contrast, a pre-foreclosure or short sale listing happens before the auction, before the foreclosure, and most importantly, at the seller’s request. Because the seller plays an integral role in the sale of their home, they continue to maintain the property until the last minute. Of course, this means that the buyer doesn’t usually have to do as many repairs as they would with a traditional foreclosure. A pre-foreclosure short sale is cheaper for the bank, too. Because they save on foreclosure fees, short sale listings can sometimes be purchased for 10-15% less than a comparable foreclosure.
