 The Importance of Using a Short Sale Expert

By David Halpern, Louisville Short Sale Expert, (502) 664-7827 and (502) 895-3100

In my city alone there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of homeowners who unnecessarily lose their homes to foreclosure each year who could have avoided it if their Realtor would have successfully procured a short sale.

Even a highly trained short sale expert cannot stop a bank from defeating itself and not every short sale will get to closing. But it is the Realtor’s responsibility to diligently and methodically go through the dozens of extra steps that don’t exist in a traditional listing.

With the introduction of HAFA short sales the homeowner has the opportunity of receiving great incentives for successfully completing a short sale, namely mandatory debt forgiveness and a $3,000 cash payment from the lender. Realtors who fail to procure the short sale can cause their clients to lose these monetary incentives.

Realtors who are not thoroughly trained and don’t have the time, staff or resources to handle short sales should simply not take on this complex negotiation. The clients come first and it is imperative that they get the best chance of avoiding foreclosure.

If a traditional sale doesn’t sell in a timely manner the seller will endure some sort of inconvenience. However, if a client is facing foreclosure and the short sale doesn’t happen on time or doesn’t take place at all, the seller can suffer irreversible monetary and emotional damage.

Often Realtors feel obligated to take a short sale listing because of their friendship or prior relationship with the seller. Other professionals such as doctors and lawyers refer clients to specialists. Contractors bring in specialized subcontractors. Likewise, Realtors should refer their short sales to Realtors who are experts in this highly specialized field. This way their clients receive the best care and the referring Realtor still gets some compensation. The referring Realtor is still the hero because he or she was resourceful enough to bring in the expert.
