sarasota short sale: How does a Short Sale help the Homeowner? - 03/08/11 01:04 PM

Bradenton, FL - As a Short Sale Broker with Keller Williams Realty in Sarasota and Manatee County, I am aware there is a lot of confusion from homeowners that are considering a Short Sale.
Here are some brief points on the benefits of a Short Sale:
•1.       Financial Recovery will most likely be much sooner with a Short Sale compared to a Foreclosure.   A homeowner who completed a Short Sale may be able to secure new financing to purchase another home in as little as 2 years, compared to a potential 7 years if they do nothing and let the … (2 comments)

Sarasota, FL - Are you behind on your mortgage payments and receiving ongoing calls from the lender?
How to get the Lender to Stop Calling You, when facing Foreclosure.

sarasota short sale: Wachovia Short Sales - Why I like a Wachovia Short Sale - 01/27/11 06:24 AM

Sarasota, FL - Having worked with many lenders, I would award Wachovia as one of my favorite lenders to work with in completing a short sale.  No offense to the other lenders out there, but they need to pay attention to what Wachovia does right and take notes.   What sets Wachovia apart from other lenders is they seem to have a perspective on the big picture in creating a win/win situation for everyone.  Examples of this are as follows:

Sarasota, FL - Be prepared to wait, if you need to Short Sale your property and you have your loan through SunTrust.
As a Short Sale Real Estate Broker in Sarasota, I have handled a lot of bank negotiated sales, however it is my experience that SunTrust is one of the most challenging lenders to communicate with.   When I mention the word "communicate",  I would refer to my ongoing attempts to call, e-mail  and even visit them without any communications back from the negotiator assigned to our Short Sale file.   In trying to escalate the file, I have also been told that … (2 comments)

sarasota short sale: In a Short Sale, does the homeowner decide what offer to accept or reject? - 01/20/11 04:38 PM

Sarasota, FL - Many homeowners are concerned their home will be sold at a price too low or not at all in a Short Sale.  The good news is that the homeowner decides what asking price to market their property for, to insure a timely sale, and which offer to accept or reject in a Short Sale.   The language in the Short Sale Addendum of the purchase contract should also explain how multiple offers will be addressed after a seller accepts an offer and if the homeowner has the right to continue marketing the property after they approve an offer.  These … (0 comments)
