Looking to buy a short sale and having difficulty getting your offers accepted?

This is something I hear every day from buyers I talk to.

As an experienced short sale listing agent that has listed and negotiated over 70 + short sale listings in the past couple of years I have found that it is this experience that can truly help the buyers I work with get their offers accepted.

I hear over and over from buyers that they have written multiple offers in the past few months only to find themselves still looking to buy a home. Frustrated and wanting to take advantage of low interest rates and declining prices but getting nowhere fast – what is a buyer to do? It is these buyers who should realize it may be time to find an agent who has experience on both sides in the unfamiliar market of short sales.

It is this experience on the listing and selling side, knowing the ins and outs of short sales and the right questions to ask listing agent that can benefit buyers in this market. My experience working with 100’s of different lenders has afforded me the knowledge that can estimate timing to a short sale approval, how to write your offers, tips on getting your offer accepted and knowing the right questions to ask the listing agent to make sure my buyers are not wasting valuable time.

I have applied my knowledge and expertise on the short sale listing and negotiating side to working with buyers looking to get offers accepted on short sales and it has been a formula for success for my buyers.
