Can you believe a short sale in Phoenix 85050 could make me so happy?

And if it made ME happy, can you believe how happy it made my BUYERS to close on their new Phoenix home today?  

Short sale in Phoenix 85050

This short sale in Phoenix 85050 was about a 90-day process from contract to close.The contract was written on May 25th. Seems like forever ago! We had to call in help – again Fidelity National Title came to the rescue when one of the big three banks couldn’t find their way to a negotiator in under 45 days.  Wish I’d called on the big dogs sooner, but it wasn’t my listing. Thankfully I was working with a fine listing agent who kept me in the loop regularly and never made me feel like a pain when I'd contact her for status. She wasn’t above listening to or implementing my suggestion to let Fidelity escalate this transaction. Now she’s a believer in Fidelity National Title and its magic short sale escalation services, too!

Every single sForrest Gump's Box of Chocolateshort sale has its quirks. 

Like Forrest Gump and his box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. 

You don't know if the sellers will qualify for a short sale or if the bank will think they have a hardship.

You don't know if the buyer is going to walk before approval.

You don't know if the seller is actually going to go through with it until the very end!

The unknowns are as endless as hundreds of boxes of assorted chocolates and their tiny surprises inside!

But when you can work with other agents who are true professionals, title companies and escrow officers who are not only ON the ball, but AHEAD of it, and serious buyers and sellers, it is certainly a more sure bet for a short sale in Phoenix 85050. 

THIS is why I am in this business!  Check out the picture below to see how a short sale in Phoenix 85050 could make me so happy!

Any questions?

Hi John! Please tell them to contact Steve De Laveaga, the VP of Marketing here, if they have any questions.  Saved me - and my associates - many many deals that were going nowhere fast!  good luck!

Congratulations on adding another Short Sale Sold! to your August and third quarter portfolio!

As to the chocolates, I refuse to buy a box of chocolates if I don't know what's in it. Unfortunately, when I refuse, the girlfriend buys it anyway. lol
