Things are getting more back to normal with a call to go view a short sale home. It was listed, but it did not sell and now they face foreclosure with the moratorium on foreclosure being lifted. Could I help them?
Arriving to a home with un-mowed grass, it was worse on the inside than the outside. The seller arrived and asked what i thought. I had the sad job of telling him why this home did not sell. He is still the owner and still responsible to maintain it even though they have moved out.
Inside i came across this tub. It was filthy. The home was similar and it was time for a hard talk. If he wants to sell it "as is", sure i can do that. I work with a great number of cash buyers and can have it under contract in mere days. We can than help him get the short sale approved. BUT THEN I SHOCKED HIM when i told hm if he gets it cleaned up and some minor repairs, I can sell it for enough to not only pay off the mortgage, but get some money in his pocket.
IN SUMMARY, he asked why is old agent never told him that. He wasted a winter trying to sell it. It was easy to see they put zero effort in. They most likely were not experienced with short sales or quick cash sales to investors.
IN THE END: The seller was incredibly happy. The work cost little in cash but required some time and elbow grease. The sellers bank gave us 90 days, which is or ethan enough to sell it and close. The seller is at ease now and happy he was referred to me.
I leave you with my infamous thoughts, My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
