Springtime has finally arrived here in York PA! With the arrival of spring house hunters are out and about looking for bargains. Buyers in particular have been looking to buy a "foreclosure" or "short sale" where they believe they can get a home for much less than market value. Buyers need to realize that the benefit of saving thousands of dollars come with it's own price. Lenders are nearly as negotiable on the price if buyers want to have home inspections performed on the property. Lenders are much more willing to negotiate if the home is bought "as is".
