Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties - Saddle River

happy-family-homeBergen County NJ – Thinking of buying a Bergen County Short Sale? The short sale process is difficult to navigate. The first thing you should do it make sure that the agent who has the house for sale knows what they are doing.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

That person, also known as the “listing agent”, is responsible for negotiations with the short sale lender. They may negotiate the short sale themselves or have a third party do it.

Either way they will be in control of most of the process. The bottom line is that if they do not know what they are doing, then the short sale will be delayed.

You may find yourself waiting 3-4 months for the short sale for the short sale to be approved. Then, after waiting and hoping that you can buy your dream home, you will find out that the short sale lender won’t approve your offer.

“We are so sorry. We worked so hard to convince them to accept it, but they still turned it down”, the agent may tell you. Wouldn’t that be heart breaking?

Unfortunately some agents just do not understand the short sale process. They are too busy with other things and never have a chance to give the short sale negotiations the property attention.

Or, the short sale negotiator they hire may be too busy to give your short sale file the attention it deserves. This is why it is important to find an agent that understands the process backwards and forward.

They will give the file the proper attention or find someone who can. They will know how to overcome any problems and roadblocks that arise.

And at the end of the day you will be able to buy your dream home

Important Notice

James Lockard, RE/MAX Properties, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not associated or affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. 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.
