A Real Estate Agent’s Expectations of a selling a home as a Short Sale.

There always seems to be a lot of talk about what a Seller expects when selling their home as a Short Sale or what a Buyer expects when buying a home as a Short Sale. But what about the Real Estate Agent’s expectations? As a Real Estate Agent who specializes in Short Sales here in Coral Springs and South Florida, I know that I have expectations of what should happen in my representation of a Short Sale. Here’s what I expect:

I will be the first to tell you that as a Coral Springs Short Sale Specialist, I’ve had Short Sales where the Seller was fully cooperative, the Buyer understood all the Short Sale time lines and terms, the Title Companies/Attorneys were proactive, other Agents were on the ball with Short Sales and Lenders were too and we had a successful Short Sale closing. It can be more normal than not, yet when one of the expectations above falls by the wayside, the Short Sale can do the same and not close.

If we were all to increase our expectations we could move the distressed properties along better.
