Short Sale Approved!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty RS-64070

So I received an offer on one of my short sale listings about a month ago.  Put the package together, sent it to the lender and play the waiting game.......Everytime I call (customer service only because they won't give out the negotiators number) they tell me to send this information or that document and some kind of update, basically the run around.  Then they say don't call till this date....well I call on that date and they tell me that everything is with the negotiator and I should be receiving an answer soon.

The next week they tell me that the negotiator  sent a counter a few weeks ago and that the file has been closed because we didin't respond....you have got to be kidding me right!!  

Since then I have been able to get in contact with the negotiator and have forward progress, a blessing in disguise!

So...calling and calling and calling really does pay off! I'll have to remind an Agent who is representing the seller on one of my transactions that they can't just wait to call until told!!! The moral of your story? Communicate, communicate, communicate, right?! Nice!

Congratulations, Chris!

Here is a big tip: Find your own Short Sale Negotiator and partner up with him on all of your short sales.
Better than that, partner up with investors like me, who will BUY those Pre-Short Sales from your sellers for
CASH, instead of wasting time and effort playing games with those idiotic banks. Which will result in much
faster sales, and many more sales every month for you as an agent.

I am always looking for hungry agents to partner with who want to sell their sellers' pre-short sales to me
and my network of investor-partners. Just send me an email / private message. Facebook is preferred for first contacts!

Chris - good job! I hate the waiting game that goes with the short sale process as well. Good job getting in touch with the negotiator...sometimes we have to think outside the box to get that contact info but when you get it things just go a lot easier.
