Re/Max is now teaming up with DTS (Dignified Transfer Solutions) and Bank of America for a Short Sale program. In order to be considered for this program you will need to have a couple of real estate (short sale) certifications.
Re/Max contacted me through e-mail as well as two others in my office that have these certifications to set us up with a test in order to qualify to be a part of the program. By doing this they are assuring that they are getting only the best when it comes to short sales so that they are completed quickly and professionally.
Here's what the program is trying to accomplish:
"The Alternative Right Party Contact (ARPC) program is a joint effort through which RE/MAX, Bank of America and Dignified Transition Solutions (DTS) reach out to preselected distressed homeowners and guide them through a Short Sale.
The initiative began in May 2011 as a pilot program in Arizona and Nevada. It has since expanded to include nearly 10,000 properties in all 50 states. If its initial success continues, more than 60,000 properties could be assigned to RE/MAX Associates in the first year."
CASH INCENTIVES: Cash incentives similar to ones that I've posted about recently could also be a part of this new program. Up to $2500 in cash with the possibility of $3,000 HAFA could lead to the seller receiving up to $5500 on completion of the homes sale.
I am excited to get started with the program and to help many more avoid foreclosure before it's too late.
