Short sales done fast. Seams every agent want listings, but not one wants to take the time to learn how to close a short sale once they sell it.....and that is totally fine with me since we can close them fast for you! Pretty funny, I can not tell you how many times I get calls from agents who do not have a clue what to do after spending time and advertising dollars listing a short sale, oonce they have a buyer, Working a short sale is an art, a skill and a major learning experience! In today's economy, and as in every economy any good listing agent will ask several questions while taking a list appointment. First, not to getpersonal, but "why are you selling your home"? How may agents actually ask why? I want to say very few agents ask sellers why they are selling their home in fear of the seller changing their minds and the agent losing the listing. Remember, the agent who helps the sellers are the ones who secure a life-time of business leads!
You may wonder why, I tell all the agent I work with to ask why are you listing, to their sellers...simple. I do not want the agents I work with and our network working hard marketing and processing only to find out the seller really does not want to short sale their home but, they want a modification! Agents make sure everyone is on the same page! Next, when taking the listing, find out your time line. Is your selling giving you a listing that has a TD sale in two weeks? or in 3 months. These are just some short tips to get you started on your short sale listing. By the way, as soon as the listing is signed, get the seller qualified!
