I believe that Lenders are working diligently to streamline the process and that through consistent training and information resources such as Short Sale Superstars, that agents can become and remain educated on the process. Training. Training. Training. But it doesn't stop there. To make a smoother short sale, I recommend that agents inform their seller of what to expect from them and what they can expect from the agent and the short sale process. Getting a COMPLETE and QUALITY short sale package in a timely manner from the homeowner is extremely beneficial to the short sale process.
I am passionate about short sales because foreclosure is a travesty that should be avoided at all costs. A foreclosure can not only damage a homeowners credit for a long period of time, but it can effect their current employment and future employment opportunities. The long term effects of foreclosure can be so costly that the full impact can be unable to calculate. It's much more than just credit. Helping homeowners get a Fresh Start and a new beginning is something I'm passionate about.
