Hey, short sale specialist. Are you tired yet of spending 10 times for time, reselling the same homes 2.5 times over before a deal closes? Are you tired of resubmitting all the docs over and over? Are you tired of working a short sale for month only to find out the lender/investor already foreclosed and no one told you? Are you tired of working harder than ever and getting paid less? Are you tired of having the loans turned over to collection agencies in the middle of negotiations? Are you tired of feeling like the enemy when dealing with some negotiators? Are you tired of services losing files and having to start all over? I am not complaining, just angry about what real estate has evolved to We have an organization who we are paying to represent us. We have paid lobbyist who are in Washington who should be protecting our interest, and not those who are elected and those that are paid to run the NAR. By protecting their members they are indirectly protecting the publics interest too. This organization numbers a million members, they can do something about the abuse short sale specialist are forced to submit to and endure everyday. Can anyone shed one iota of light on anything they have done to end the servicer/investor/MI company abusive practices, put sanity into a dysfunctional system and streamline the short sale process which economically affects everyone in America. According to "Mortgage News Daily" it cost $77,935 to foreclose on a home. This year it will cost or should I say needlessly squander an additional $93.5 billion foreclosing on 1.2 million homes. We have already lost more than $10 trillion in the equity of 130 million homes. Why is nothing being done? After all It's now going on five years! I would like to hear from those of you who agree and those who do not. And, what do you think they can do that they are not to help their members and the distressed American home owner? This ineffective organization is the NAR.
