Short Sale Option Loophole Closed

One of Florida's major title insurance companies, Attorneys Title Insurance, announced that they will no longer insure transactions involving a short sale option contract.

A short sale option contract is a technique being used by opportunists to buy a short sale from a bank at below market value and then flip to a true buyer at a mark-up. These transaction are depriving the property lender of maximizing return on short sale and also raising prices for the ultimate buyer.

Closing this loophole and eliminating middlemen that were not adding any value to a short sale transaction is a positive step in cleaning streamlining short sale transactions. If you are in the market for a Southwest Florida short sale, there are plenty of options in both Cape Coral and Fort Myers.
