Banks? Smart? Oxymoron! "Buy a Short Sale it'll close faster than this foreclosure!"

Here in Pensacola I have found that my average is 57 days, not great but a lot sooner then a few months ago. Equator has helped a lot as well as calling daily for status updates.

I feel the need to share an experience that I have been "enjoying" for the past 7 weeks.

People are sometimes afraid - but often aware-  of the time it may take to close on a short sale property.

What do you tell the buyer who is purchasing a bank owned home and it seems to be taking longer to close than some short sales?

Do you blame it on too many employee breaks at the somewhat involved title processing company?

 Or do you cast stones at the listing agent who just doesn't seem to have any answers?

 How about the occassional person who calls with an update only to tell you that the reasons for the hold up are the same as before and noone knows why???

 Oh, that's right....the company handling approval of estoppel fees is on vacation until further notice.....

 So, after many weeks of the blame game..

We are still experiencing this......

So that maybe in.....

My buyer can enjoy this!

Stay tuned.........

Good reblog. Could you elaborate on Equator in a post and explain how to use it and how it has speeded the process up in your turf? Curious. Thanks for all the comments on my posts, too.

Anytime Bob and keep up the good post for reposting my friend

Hi Cheryl as for us I have a girl that is trained to work short sales, she along with me were negotiating short sales when they were called PRE foreclosures back then they were mostly for young military families that didn't want to be landlords. All this short sale expert stuff is fluff I mean a 32 hour course is not going to make you an expert although we can call ourselves that all we want. Experience is the teacher and we have that . Equator has sped the process up simply by not having to deal with a lot of middle men you have one person that can get it done.
