I have a Short Sale Dilemma. I am attending the Atlanta training for CDPE (Certified Default Property Expert) this week and pondering whether the money spent for this course is a good investment or throwing good money after bad.
I learned the art of the short sale 6 years ago from a Ron LeGrand course and did several dozen Atlanta short sales before I realized teaching others how to do them was far more lucrative than doing them myself.
While it is true that Short Sale is the new buzz-word for many struggling real estate agents desperate to survive the stagnant housing market, most agents doing them agree they are difficult, time-consuming and far from a slam dunk.
Since all the evidence points to short sales becoming the NEW Holy Grail for real estate agents, I too am ready to jump back in and crank up my short sale machine. If short sales are going to be big, we as real estate agents should educate ourselves for the approaching opportunity and re-position some or even all of our business to exploit this niche right? => Click here for full post.
Do You think ramping up your short sale business will lead to success or failure? I would love your perspective.
