How do we get the banks and asset managers to notice us?
This was a question asked on the CDPE forum site from this morning. It was part of a forum post wanting to know if the Short Sale lenders prefer the CDPE designation over the NAR SFR designation.
Here’s a clue: The lender doesn’t give a squat about your designations! Nor should they.
So.....how DO we get the banks and asset mangers to notice us?
Here are a 10 tips that will help.
Submit complete and organized short sale packages with contracts that make sense.
Fully understand the Short Sale process and treat the negotiators with respect.
Only escalate when all other avenues have been exhausted.
If you are a blogger, or spend time on Facebook or Twitter, be sure to write POSITIVE stuff about short sales. Lenders do “Google” agents. If you are constantly writing about negative short sale experiences they will notice you...just in a bad way.
Be a “step above”. Help the negotiator have a good experience working with you. If you do have to escalate don’t bash the negotiator. Make them look good in the eyes of their superiors.
Be a problem solver not a problem creator.
Be able to support your stance with facts and in writing.
Work WITH the lenders to get the short sale approved.
Build a reputation as one who gets deals closed.
Never stop learning and being open for new ways to handle short sales. Know the difference between a regulation or law and a rule or company policy. And know why this matters.
Remember, contrary to popular belief, Lenders prefer doing a short sale over foreclosing. Our job is to make sure we are giving them what they need to make the decision we want them to make for the advantage of our sellers.
If you do these things often enough you WILL get noticed by the banks and asset managers. And when they start dishing out short sale listing this year you will be in a better position to get you some of that business. I know I will.
Are you facing foreclosure in Florida?
Do NOT be foreclosed on! Avoid foreclosure. Short Sales DO close.
