Picking Your Distressed Mortgage Specialist
The right agent to help you navigate for your short sale serves as a captain of the ship and is responsible for the overall success or failure of the voyage. The job of a Distressed Mortgage Specialist is not only to list the property and to find a short sale buyer, it is also to make sure that all parties understand the details of the process, that expectations are managed, and the seller's interests are protected at all times.
Although anyone can claim to be a short sale specialist, it is fairly easy to identify who is and who is not the right person for saving you from foreclosure. My recommendation is to start with the following questions, when selecting the short sale Realtor to represent you thoughout the short sale process:
Asking all or at least some of the questions, listed above, should give you a sense of whether your potential short sale Realtor is the right person for the job. Inability to answer these questions with a high degree of certainty should serve as a warning and a signal to seek other options.
In these turbulent times, you can not afford to put your financial health into the hands of a mediocre professional.
