Some of them are not even licensed realtors. I recently saw an article on a well known financial website. The article falsely claimed that ” A home has to be on the market for at least 90 days before the lender will review the short sale file.
Obviously this person has never sold a VA Short Sale, nor reviewed VA Short Sale Guidelines. Not many people know about it, but a lender must give an answer on any short sale file within 45 days.
They must make a decision within 45 days of their receipt of all necessary documents from the home seller. As you can see, the 90 day rule does not apply to VA Short Sales.
We’ve negotiated hundreds of short sales and never seen a lender request the home be marketed for 90 days before they will consider an offer. That is ludicrous!
So, before you believe everything you read about short sales ask for the person’s credentials. Ask them, “How many short sales have you been involved with?”
The answer from many of these so called experts may surprise you.

Our services have not been reviewed, endorsed, or approved by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
If you stop paying your mortgage, then you could lose your home and damage your credit. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
