Check The Important Facts About Short Sale Realtors

by Jose Malave I am an author.

In all likeliness, you must have heard about a “real estate short sale”, also otherwise known simply as a short sale. Any sale of property that fetches a lower price than owned on the property is known as a short sale. For example, if you had a debt of $X, the creditor may choose to receive an amount of $X-Y received from the sale of your house/apartment/real estate property. In short, the lender opts to absorb some amount of loss, while the borrower doesn’t need to bother about foreclosure, which can have a huge impact on the credit score.

 If you want to buy properties available in short sale, you need to first find an agent. Below are the aspects of working with a short sale realtor.

The basics

Before you look for a short sale realtor, it is important to understand that this kind of sale is only possible when all the involved agree to the complete terms and conditions. Such kind of sale is more interesting to the buyer, because sellers are usually in some sort of financial distress and they want to get decent value for their house without going for foreclosure. Buyers are on the winning side, because the closing costs and other fees are minimized considerably. Now, if you intend to use your house for closing a debt, do keep in mind that a short sale still impacts on your credit.

Why need a realtor?

More often than not, buyers have no clue of what's happening in a short sale, and that’s were a realtor comes in the picture. The realtor may work on the paperwork related to the sale and does the required closing to send the papers to the bank. A realtor also negotiates the offer price and does what it takes to settle things between both the parties, depending on who has hired the firm.  The concerned realtor will also prepare preliminary title report and will also check other relevant requirements. The concerned agent, depending on their role, may assume the role of selling a short sale approval letter to varied parties involved. The team from the realtor’s office will attend the closing besides ensuring that everything goes as planned.

Hiring a short sale realtor

Before you hire a short sale realtor, you need to know their experience and the kind of work they have done so far. It is also important to check if the concerned realtor can take care of your immediate concerns and if their team is securing the right deal. In real estate, nothing matters more than transparency, and that’s an aspect worth considering. Keep in mind that short sale realtors must have more experience in the paperwork, because the trail can be quite extensive as there are lenders and banks involved. Talk to the realtor about the concerns related to the price, especially if you are keen on getting the best deal for your home without bothering about foreclosure.
