Short Sale Tip! When do you fax your Short Sale package to the Bank? 8am-5pm? Don't!! - 07/14/08 02:27 PM
Short Sale Tip of the Day When you submit your Short Sale package, you should fax it in just before bed (after 7pm), or first thing in the morning when you wake up (before 7-8am). Otherwise, you're faxing a Short Sale package in to the bank at the same time every other Real Estate Agent/Investor in the US is also faxing theirs. You dramatically increase your chances of having various components or sections of your Short Sale package getting lost in the shuffle, or never being received alltogether. This tip is brought to you by the Team at America's Home Rescue (4 comments)
Short Sale Tip! Are you actually taking the time to write the loan number on every page of your Short Sale package? - 07/14/08 02:15 PM
Loans numbers can be really, really long! This takes way too much time! What about creating labels? Still, too much time! Short Sale Tip of the Day!! Microsoft Word has a Header/Footer Function. Create a blank template with only the header (positioned top right) and the footer (positioned bottom left) on the page. For both the header and the footer, type in the loan number. 14-16 point font is recommended. Next, take all the paper out of your printer and place all the contents of your package into the paper tray of your printer. Make sure you have the package in the right way (1 comments)
