Why and How to Find an Experienced Real Estate Agent

Making the decision to short sale your family home is not an easy one.  One should always know all of their options before deciding. Another tough decision to make would also be making sure that you choose the correct agent. In a short sale, this simple choice can make or break your transaction.

There’s a plethora of agents to choose from in San Diego. So how do you know which agent is the correct one for you? If you are conducting a short sale you need to make sure that your agent is well versed on the ins and outs of the short sale process. A short sale transaction requires much more than just slapping a for sale sign on the front yard and putting the property in the MLS. A short sale agent and their team handle all the communications and negotiations with the bank. If the real estate agent has no or little experience dealing with loss mitigation and negotiators, guess who suffers? YOU, the seller!

If you decide to list a home with an Agent that is not experienced in short sales, you run the risk of the bank foreclosing on your home or the short sale process dragging out for months on end (talk about a headache!) If you list your home with an agent versed in the short sale process, they will be able to tell you what to expect, know that the banks request before they are made,  are knowledgeable about short sale laws and bills that protect  you, and ultimately be able to provide written approval for you to sell your home. One thing you will most likely notice is that top experienced short sale Agents typically utilize 3rd party negotiations companies. This is because a negotiations company has experience with hundreds if not thousands of files and will be able to provide a firm approval much quicker than industry average.  These simple set of skills acquired by a Real Estate Agent and their team can make your life and your short sale 100% easier.

Here are a few ways to find an experienced short sale agent:

  1. Referrals
  2. Attend Short Sale Open Houses
  3. Utilize the internet
  4. Visiting your lender’s website and they often have a list of short sale specialists by zip code
  5. Visit Short Sale Certification sites such as CDPE – http://www.cdpe.com/find-cdpe-results.html
