Have you ever worked with any of the “special” operators in any of the “life saving” professions? Like in the Military or in Law enforcement. Those that were so patient on trigger – they achieved a “surprise break” with every single press?
Real Estate is not much different. While, it is not about life and death – at least not in the same way 🙂 It is about hiring the best expert you can for the job you want accomplished.
Short Sales being of the utmost importance with who you hitch your trailer to, depending on the “responsibility and knowledge” of the professional.
Second comes the Standard Seller, while important, a person selling a standard sale does not have the “credit and 10-99 tax” implications a Short Sale Seller could potentially have.
If you are a buyer hunting a Foreclosure – why not work with a Real Estate agent that has worked with the large banks in the sales of their inventory. The saying goes, “If the banks trust us to sell their foreclosure assets – why shouldn’t you?”
While the large banks have started to “shun” their listing agents (reo agents) from representing the buyers on those specific assets they are asked to sell, all is not lost.
Ask them how many REO listings they have sold in the past 3 years. Ask them what banks they work with. Ask them about their track record or score with the REO management company or the bank.
Then ask they how that experience and expertise can help you accomplish your goals with the purchase of a Foreclosure or bank owned property.
