I'm going to wash the cat. Get a paramedic ready! Does that sound dramatic enough? Well, when it comes to my cat, there should be paramedics on site before a drop of water falls. She's just that difficult to deal with, but we love her. I think.
I found myself in a cat washing scenario last Friday. I'm in the middle of a REO sale and a short sale at the same time. What was I thinking? I've sold a lot of both over the past decade but I backed off of both about 3-4 years ago. They just weren't worth the hassle, but I made the misplaced assumption that banks would have figured out the process by now, but boy was I wrong. It's still like being dragged over broken glass while getting soaked in rubbing alcohol.
Do I have helpful advice for you to overcome this banker malaise? Is there a short-cut around the minutia and volumes of unnecessary redundant documents and mindless initials and signatures to no-where? I wish there was. I find it stunning that banks, REO companies, asset managers and bank negotiators have learned nothing in the past 9 years, but alas they have not.
So, since I'm going to get drug through the alcohol bathed broken glass, I might as well wash the cat. A paramedic is waiting for the final outcome, and so are my buyers. Wish me luck!
