IL – Short Sales can be frustrating. Ask anyone who has negotiated a short sale with a lender and they will tell you the process is tough. Here is a story that illustrates this point.

You are negotiating a short sale with a lender. You call in and talk to a someone in a call center overseas. They are very helpful and give you the fax number for the short sale paperwork.

You fax the short sale package. A few day later you call in to follow up. (Most lenders systems take a few days to process the paperwork.)

They tell you that they have no record of having received your paperwork. “That’s pathetic”, you tell them. “I sent it to this fax number. Can you confirm that is the right one?”

“No, that is not the correct fax number”, they tell you. “Here is the correct fax number.” This is why simple follow up is so important if you want a chance at a successful short sale.

Small mistakes like this happen all the time. Let’s say an agent is not familiar with the process. Do you think they will become frustrated after experiencing all the mistakes compounded together?

I think so. To have the best chance at success your agent needs to follow up on the short sale twice a week. Most agents don’t do this. As a result, they aren’t successful at short sales.

That’s why you hear them say the following. “I hate short sales. They are so frustrating. They take forever. Most of mine have dragged out for 9-12 months. The short sale lenders are so tough to work with.”

Why can’t these agents follow up on their short sale file twice a week? Because they don’t specialize in short sales. Your short sale is just one of eight other things they are working on.

A buyer comes to town for a week to buy a home. The agent is busy driving them all over town that week. They don’t have time to follow up on your file.

They are burned out next week and take a few days off. They get back to work on Wednesday. Wednesday thru Friday are consumed with catching up on everything else.

They have to call back three other sellers, show homes to another buyer, and follow up on their closings. They don’t follow up on your file until the next week.

What chance does your short sale have? Everyone knows focus is the key to success. I have chosen to focus on short sales. Because of this, my short sale sellers know that I will handle their file properly.

  • ~ A Dream Come True

    A Dream Come True"In today's economic environment, home buyers (especially first timers like us) need an experienced professional to help them locate the right house, understand financing and legal concerns, and to simply be a reassuring friends when obstacles arise.  We could not have been happier with the guidance provided by Evelyn Santiago in our home buying adventure.  From our first showings in 18 inches of fresh snow, to finally getting keys to our new home, Evelyn was right there with us.  She was immediately available at any time, kept us informed of any information available, and made us feel like the most important clients she had ever worked with. As first time homebuyers, we weren't even sure why type of property we really wanted.  Evelyn was patient is showing us townhomes and single family homes, discussed various advantages and disadvantages of each, and helped us to determine exactly what we were looking for.  As we modified our list of desired traits in a new home, Evelyn was quick to respond by searching the MLS, suggesting properties, and setting up showings.  After seeing twenty-six different properties, we finally found the house that we knew we could call 'Home'.   Her experience and in-depth knowledge of the fluctuating home values enabled her to not only suggest an offer on the house, but she also accurately predicated the price we would pay for the home after final counter-offer negotiations completed!
