Last week I wrote a blog about Short Sales Are Driving Me Crazy and received several helpful comments and shared stories about their short sale experiences. One of the comments I received was from a company that wrote about their services as a facilitator who will handle the entire transaction. Sounded good and worth the expense, if they would handle the transaction and get the property to close. So I mentioned it at one of my office meetings, thinking it sounded like a good idea for the company. After my meeting I was approached by one of the Realtors in my office who shared their experience in hiring a facilitator and how they were paying approximately $600.00 a month for their services. After hearing their story about the expense and the endless paper work they still needed to do plus additional paper work for the short sale company they hired, a good idea initially seems to be expensive without alleviating the work involved in the short sale process. Also 1 year later and the property still didn't close. My question is does anyone know of a company who provides this service and really does what they promise all the paper work and handles the entire transaction. Also like a realtor, if we can't get the property to close we don't get paid so why should they.
