Hi Folks. Here's an email I received yesterday from one our members at www.ShortSaleSuperStars.com. It shows the common misunderstanding that lenders handle short sales like they do REOs (foreclosures). Hi Broker Bryant, I read some of your comments on Short Sales Superstar.    I am a potential ...

Well that's a good question. What do you think? Most folks would probably answer this question with a resounding YES! But...what if I told you the answer is "No....you don't necessarily need a hardship to qualify for a Short Sale. You may be able to do a Strategic Short Sale". Heck, big business...

Title Companies handling Short Sale "negotiations" is the new trend in my area. I quote "negotiations" because they don't really handle negotiations at all. Instead they do what Title Companies do....shuffle paperwork. Here's an excerpt from one National company's solicitation to agents. Now folk...

Article: WSJ.com: A Walker's Guide to Home Buying For a few years in the early 2000's, I lived in South Tampa and worked in central New Jersey (Somerset County). Monday mornings I woke up bright (well...) and early, hopped on a plane, and was to my cube in Raritan by lunchtime. On Fridays I'd hea...

Hi folks. There's an old scam that's floating around again. "Buyers" that contact agents via Trulia and other sites wanting to purchase a property without seeing it for full price.  Normally properties in the $500K range. The "Buyers" are mostly from out of the country and ask that the deal be r...

Hi Folks. We had one of our members over at www.ShortSaleSuperStars.com post an article wanting to know if it was normal for Short Sale Agents to submit "offers" on their Short Sale listings just to get the ball rolling. The idea of course is to start negotiations with the lender by submitting an...

Hi folks. I've been having a discussion over at www.ShortSaleSuperStars.com on whether or not having the Buyer of a Short Sale pay off part of a junior lien "outside of closing" without disclosing to the 1st lien holder and without placing the payment as a P.O.C. (paid out of closing) item on th...

Maybe. In the last two weeks I have loaded five short sales into the Equator system. All have had BPOs (Broker Price Opinions) ordered and one has already been countered and accepted by the seller. We should have a written approval by the end of the week. Now for those of you that have worked a ...

Well OK then. BUT.....did you know getting it removed is not enough? "What ya talkin' 'bout Willis?" Having the deficiency language removed from a Florida Short Sale approval letter don't mean squat. Of course, I am NOT an Attorney nor do I play one on TV. So you need to seek legal advice if thi...
