Short Sales could be the reasons you are seeing price changes

    It does not mean you have to back up and punt – but it might mean that you have hired the wrong short sale agent to work for you.

    Before you get your personals in a bunch – let me explain.

    The main motivation of any Experienced Short Sale agent should be the short selling of your home.

    Their number one priority should them helping you through a rough process, being your guiding light, helping you focus on the “best possible” outcome.

    They should not be those that are undercutting the market in price with regard to your short sale, wanting to work it for leads.

    Of course, if they are “spot on” and have experience on the internet with obtaining leads – then those will come. But they won’t come because they have taken a $500,000 property and list it for $300,000.

    That will only cause you problems with keeping buyers interested because, most real estate buyers cannot climb 200k from where they qualify for.

    Most buyers of real estate write offers close to their maximum approved amount. Be this the best thing or the worst thing a buyer can do – it is where a majority of buyers are in today’s market.

    My advice – interview several agents that talk about being experts in the short sale process. ask around for referrals from people you know.

    Don’t take for granted that they are all short sale experts. Most will say they are – but few truly are.

    See if they have a staff in place, check to find out if they have methods built around short selling properties, and see if they are writing about the process on a blog or by submitting articles.

    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.
