No, the real estate purchase process involves several steps but the first two are critical:
- All offers must be in writing.
- Proof of funds is required.
Sellers, even short sale and foreclosure sellers, will not entertain verbal offers.
Furthermore, if you are serious your written offer will include a proof of funds letter, a mortgage pre-approval or some other tangible proof of your ability to make the purchase.
For information on the short sale process, either as a buyer or seller, call me at 321-693-3850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
