It is so much better to buy a short sale because:
1)you are going to buy a property at below appraised value before it goes into foreclosure,
2)you are helping the economy. A Foreclosure has a very negative impact on the economy in many ways,
3)it helps the looks of our neighborhoods, because foreclosures are usually unkept, and in disrepair,
4)Short sale properties are usually in very good condition. Once it becomes foreclosure, the vandals move in and destroy the property,
5)you are helping a family sell their home who is much in need of your help. In most cases it is a real hardship that has forced the sale. Good karma may come from it,
6)many times you don't have to make the costly repairs needed to get a foreclosure back into shape.
So as you can see Short Sales are a great value.
