Wow, this is a problem that we haven't experienced with short sales yet! Scott Godzyk of The Godzyk Real Estate Services located in Manchester NH heard an interesting story of a situation in which the seller used an out of the area Realtor to handle their short sale and the buyer who did not use a Realtor. The long and short of it is that after the sale, the buyer let the seller stay in the house and now the seller won't move! Don't let this happen to you!

Short Sales can pose some interesting questions. If all the challenges are met and the short sale gets approval from the home owners lender, the biggest challenge could be yet to come. I work with alot of Short Sales and Bank Owned homes here in the Manchester NH area so I have seen a troubling pattern. This blog is inspired by a question from a buyer looking for help. For them it was too late for my help as they made an offer on a short sale with no buyer broker and an out of town listing agent they never met. Since releasing this blog yesterday my Inbox lit up which inspired this new blog You Can't handle the Truth about SHORT SALES.
You see the biggest question is when does the seller move out. The largest problems arise when sellers are not aware of the time frames and buyers are not ready to accept the consequences of a poorly managed short sale. The buyers mortgage will mandate they move in upon closing and the seller needs time to get out. The problem is when the buyer lets the owner or a tenant stay in the property after closing with a short sale. I have both seen and heard of sellers refusing to leave after closing and tenants that were allowed to stay taking everything that was not nailed down and quite a few that were nailed down with them.
HOW CAN A BUYER PROTECT THEMSELVES WITH THE SELLER BEING ABLE TO HAVE TIME TO MOVE?
THE SELLER: The seller needs to start by choosing an agent to list with who is local, full time and well experienced with listing, negotiating and selling short sales. You see a well experienced agent will educate the seller and inform them through each step of the short sale. The final step is the most important that when approval comes, the bank will usually mandate closing in no more than 30 days from approval which means the seller should have arrangements in order where they are going to move to.
THE BUYER: When I represent a buyer I always tell them under no circumstance would I buy a home that I would owner occupy and allow anyone to reside in the house when I closed.
People will ask what if you are the listing agent, How could you go against your seller like that? It is an easy answer becuase I would not put my seller in that position. I inform them through each step of the short sale process so they know when it is time to look and when it is time to move prior to being oput in the situation of "get out now".
In conclusion Home Owners have a choice, they can list their home with just anyone and face lots of potential issues becuase they rushed. OR They can choose to sell it through an agent who will spend that extra time to get the job done right.
