Santa Clarita Short Sales – Tip 3 – Financials

    When working on a short sale, we need to have updated financials, at the bank's request, ready to submit.

    That is why in our “Short Sale Briefing” we stress to our clients that some of the banks are completely unreasonable.

    What is in your short sale agents tool box?

    Sometimes their requests come at the very last minute. It seems to happen during the last few days of every month, more often than during other parts of the month.

    Could that be where the Short Sale conspiracy starts? Who knows, all I know is we need to all be prepared to react with regard to these last minute requests by the Banks and their Short Sale Departments.

    We are the local realtors for the Santa Clarita short sales. We can assist you with making the decision with regard to whether or not you should be short selling.

    We also have one upped the competition and hired a direct, in office, short sale negotiator. She even has her own business cards 🙂 – that means she is on our direct team and is not a third party negotiator hired for a percentage and located “off site”. – look for Sarah McNeeley

    BTW – if you are hiring a real estate agent to negotiate your short sale – one of the things you are going to notice on the CAR forms related to short sales and short selling is Negotiators are usually needing to be licensed real estate agents, ours is!

    You may want to ask the agent you are hiring for proof of that with whom they are using to negotiate their Santa Clarita short sales, just in case they aren't.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
