Moorpark CA – Many agents and buyers are scared of short sales. Here is something that I do to make the short sale process easier for the home seller.
Before I start negotiations with your lender, I will order a complete title search. Here is why I do that. I want to know all the costs upfront, before I give the bank a number.
Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.
If I don't do this, then the short sale lender will approve the short sale at a certain price. We can get to the closing table and discover there are unforeseen costs.
Then we have to go back and re-negotiate with the short sale lender. This can be tough because they already have a higher number in mind.
Sometimes you have to start the short sale negotiations all over again. That can delay the short sale by 2-3 months, if not longer.
This trips up many agents and causes them to bad mouth short sales. Extra costs can show up in the form of higher than expected Homeowner's Association Dues, Property Taxes, and other costs.
The title company will do a complete title search. They will get an estimated payoff from the Homeowner's Association, and estimate the payoff for the taxes.
Since I take this pre-caution I have found short sales to be easy and fun. Before you hire a short sale agent, ask them about the short sale process. If they don't mention this step, then find another short sale agent.

Chris B Johnson, Prudential California Realty , and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse 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.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. 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.
