Advanced Short Sale Agent Training Launching February 5th!!

Come join us at

Hi folks. OK so I'm so excited I can't stand it. My partner, Wendy Rulnick, and I made the decision today to launch a brand new updated Short Sale Agent Training.

We did our first Short Sale Agent Training in June of 2009. That was a 5 session course teaching the Short Sale Basics from qualifying the seller all the way to closing. From that training was launched. We now have over 5,000 members!!

Short Sale Agent Network

But things have changed. HAFA was introduced. Equator came into play. Short Sales are no longer a niche market. Short Sales are now mainstream. However, agents nationwide still have lots of questions and want answers.

Wendy and I will be working on the curriculum over the next couple of weeks in preparation for the February 5th launch.

Some of the questions we want to answer are:

  • What to do when the 2nd lien holder wants $10,000 but the 1st lien will only pay $3,000?
  • What happens when the MI Company ask the borrower to "participate in the loss"?
  • My offer submitted in Equator was rejected. What now?
  •  How can I get the foreclosure auction date postponed?
  • When should I escalate the file?
  • Can I contact the investor direct to negotiate the Short Sale?

And much, much more. In fact, this post is an opportunity for you to ask your questions.

What do you need help with? What topics do you want Wendy and I to discuss? Help us to help you.

Ask your questions in the comments section of this post. We want to make sure that this new Short Sale Agent Training is the most comprehensive and most practical program out there to help you in your Short Sale business.

Our mission is to help as many agents as we can so you in turn can help folks in your market area. Together we CAN make a difference.

"So, Broker Bryant, how much is this going to cost me?" Good question. We don't know yet. Your questions will help us determine how many sessions we will need. The number of sessions will determine the cost. Let's just say it will be the best deal out there. OK?

BB - looks like a winner. No particular questions from me at this time.

I noticed the parking signs had been missing - thought they were stolen.

This is my dilemma today.

  • What to do when the 2nd lien holder wants $13,000 but the 1st lien will only pay $6,000?

The 2nd lien holder did not participate in the bail out. 1st lien holder has approved the short sale and the clock is ticking. I am not sure I can wait till the 5th of Feb.

Ellie. If the 2nd won't budge then someone needs to pay them. Buyer, seller or both. The extra $7,000 can be a closing costs on the HUD it just can't come from the proceeds of the sale.

BB from what I have been hearing the 2nd is not allowed to receive anything from anyone except the amount stated by the 1st.  I'm sure you know that much and I heard this from both fannie and freddie when I spoke to them.

Ellie I would suggest a promissory note of $7000 for 5 years.

We have not had many short sales or foreclosures in my area but that seems to be changing somewhat and just going through your sessions would be good training, I'm thinking...

Will watch for the announcement of the training.
