The Brady Girls

September 15th, 2009 8:47 AM by David W. Welch

In the immortal words of Jan Brady "short sales, short sales, short sales." Ok, Jan did not complain about short sales getting all the attention, but her older sister Marcia. I could categorize the different types of sales we are seeing these days using the Brady girls though. Let's start with Jan - she is definitely the normal sale stuck in between the all style and no substance Marcia "Short Sale", and the irresistable Cindy "Bank Owned". Jan as the "Normal Sale", is a little more solid or real. Like the normal sales she represents, Jan is more firm like real owners are with their prices. Jan wants to be popular, but is not necessarily willing to concede (lower price) to popular fads. There is an underlying value to Jan, (sellers disclosure, history of the property) that you don't always get from Marcia (As-Is) and Cindy (As-Is Where Is). Marcia is all about appearances (too low price) and not as concerned with what is underneath (will it ever close). It is hard to overlook her though (great deal if you can put up with the bank). Hopefully, in the end she will be worth the wait. Cindy is just adorable (multiple offers), and everybody likes her (highest and best offer). She has that little lisp though (leaky roof?, mold?, missing A/C?) that might make you just a little uneasy. In the end all the Brady girls have their issues, but they are all so darn cute. You better ask one of them to the prom (buy a house) before it's too late.
