Short Sales Done Fast

Services for Real Estate Pros with Short Sale Resolution Network

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!

The seller!

Many agents in my office are struggling with getting them done. They are frustrated, but our broker is ramping up the training and with our firm's dedication to training and professional representation I am sure we will all be better in the future.

David, I wrote you this great responce about our training program and how offices who have us come in and train them increase their production, but somehow it disappeared! I must haveput too many great secrets in it! You can check out our website, I think it may help.  All in all, we do come out and train agents with a min of 10 in an office and depending on the location and the amount of agents will determine the price, usually $75 to $150. Well worth the price for the amount of closed sales which will occur!  Our average turn around is 45 to 60 days!  You keep the listing, we process the short sale, cost is 12.5% each side and usually our agents are getting 2.5% each side.  Questions, call me at 866-844-6873!  Best of Luck!
