Why I LOVE To Do Short Sales!

Real Estate Agent with All Real Estate Options

The adventure in short sales, Jacksonville Florida

Yep, you heard (read)me right-I do love to do short sales! Now, I wasn't always on the short sale band wagon-they did intimidate me, but I started taking classes and gobbled up as much information that my little brain could handle. I still take classes and I still pick the brains of the experts in my office who   were doing short sales when short sales were a foreign language.

Some agents in the Jacksonville Florida area, say they won't show short sales, my question to them is how do NOT show them, they're EVERYWHERE! I realize in some parts of the country, short sales are not as common, but here they are in everyone's backyard. Let me show you an example: As I'm writing this I    I do short saleschecked the Northeast Florida Multiple listing service, there are currently 2,748 active (available) homes for sale in Jacksonville in the 100k-200k price range. Out of these 2,748 homes for sale in Jacksonville, there are 712 homes that are short sales (list price is lower than what they owe). YIKES! That's about 26%.

Personally, I think it should be mandatory that we take a short sale class. Heck, we are required to take a 6 minute class on how to unlock a lockbox bot not on how to do short sales in Jacksonville. Where's the logic???

So what do you as the consumer do if you're already working with an agent and that agent tells you-I don't show short sales or I don't do short sales? Walk, no I mean RUN as fast as you can! If they're not willing to show them, they probably weren't willing to take any classes to educate themselves on the process.

Sellers: Same thing! If the agent you're talking to has no short sale experience or short sale education, is hesitating on taking your listing, find an agent who loves doing short sales. In fact, if you're a buyer  looking to buy a short sale or a seller needing to sell their home as a short sale in Jacksonville, Orange Park, Fleming Island or surrounding areas in Northeast Florida, give me a call at 904-910-3516.

The short of it for me is knowing that at the end of the day I've worked hard to help ease the stress of a family going through a financial difficulty, that's the real reason I love to do short sales.

OK Pam. I might be calling you for advice! I'll be listing another short sale this week, for a man from our church. Unfortunately, he bought at the height of the market =(  I really want him to get as much as he can for his condo.

Lisa, you can call me anytime! Of course I haven't ran across every situation or know everything, so what I don't know I'll find out. How's the condo market there? We have tons of them here.
