Bristow, VA Short Sale Sellers Welcome

If you are looking to sell your Bristow, VA home in a Short Sale, there are some real estate agents in the market that DO NOT want to work with you.  Personally, I don't get that attitude and am offended when I see it advertised.

Unlike agents that pander to the belief that Short Sale Sellers and their properties are somehow less than regular sellers, I understand that Bristow, VA Short Sales are really not that much different than regular sales.  In fact, I have to regularly educate my buyers that there are no discounts on listings just because they are Short Sales. 

When Short Sale Banks send out appraisers or real estate agents to determine the value of a property that is up for Short Sale review, they are NOT just comparing to foreclosures and other Short Sales.  They are looking at homes that are comparable in size, condition and location. That means the banks want the same price as regular sellers.

If you are looking for an agent that understands that the value of your home is not determined by your equity postion, and respects you no matter WHAT your financial situation, give me a call.  My Bristow, VA Short Sales get top dollar and my Short Sale Sellers are treated with the same respect that any seller would expect.

Great message, Chris Ann. Short sale sellers in Bristow would be wise to choose you as their agent.

Richard:  Thanks!  That was a photo taken courtesy of my Managing Broker.  It was a marketing piece as a result of being a Top Producer in 2011.  The sign is blank so I can add any message I want.

Cynthia:  I remember being up against an anti-Short Sale Agent for a Short Sale Listing.  I knew it too.  Brought their anti-Short Sale ad to the listing appointment.  Needless to say, I got the listing.

Chris Ann - I have personally never listed a short sale but I would.  Odd now that I think about never listing one.  Hey we're all in this real estate boat together and work is work and being professional is a must in all situations!  Have a great day in all you do my friend.

John:  It's unreal that anyone in our business would take out an ad to tell the public what they WON'T do.

Scott:  I don't know why so many agents are so adamant they will not help Short Sale Sellers.  To not have the expertise is one thing.  To imply they are killing market values for the community is quite another.
