Sherburne County Short Sales - A Need for Caution

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc. 539MN

Homeowners should be cautious about using short sale negotiators who guarantee results and who charge fees in addition to commissions for the sale of the property.  I have seen this happen from time to time, and it makes both angry and sad for the homeowners who get taken.


If you live in Sherburne County, there is no reason to use any negotiator who needs money “up front”.  Sometimes, a realtor might ask for a realistic marketing fee, but even then, there are so many brokerages that don’t. 


Be aware of scams, and, yes, I can call them scams if they guarantee a result from the lender. 


No one wants to see your home go into foreclosure.  But, take the responsibility of finding the right brokerage and realtor or broker to use when you must sell that property or lose it and your credit rating.

I see these ads all the time in the local papers, and they scare me.  Thanks for the heads up!

If you are facing a short sale situation in the Elk River or Sherburne County area of Minnesota, don't leave your fate up to chance. Call Don Sabinske and his crew. They are real hard nosed and know how to get the short sales approved.

Short sales are difficult and aren't that easy to do, but there are agents out there who think that they know the score and want to make money at the expense of distressed homeowners.

I'm always suspicious of anyone who guarantees anything that is out of their control. I consider it to be yet another scam.
