I went on an expired listing presentation and the seller said he wanted to do a short sale this time. I have not done a short sale in my 8 years in business as a realtor. He said a sales agent told him he can get some money even if he sells his home lower than his mortgage. His mortgage is $340,000 and will list his home for $316,000 which he said is the value of his home per his tax assessment and hope to sell at $289,000. Getting some money seems doubtful to me and I told him so. If that is the case, shouldn't everybody jump in the bandwagon? I promised to call him the next day after I checked it out. When I called him, he said his brother who is a co-owner of the property listed last night with the other agent. I need some opinions about how short sale really works and the position of the agent who promised the homeowner that they will get some money just so he can get the listing. That's unethical in my book.
