Your Real Estate Agent is a Dumb Ass!

Yes that is what i said if your real estate agent sits there and tells you he can short sale your home and you want have to pay your mortgage and stay in the house he is a “A STUPID ASS” as Real Estate Agents we cannot dish out legal advice, when I do a Short Sale there is no trickery of flim flam nonsense, its a Listing an Attorney and a loss mitigation person from the lender that’s it! No deed flips, no special payment programs etc. There are to many Agents calling themselves “Short Sale Experts” and they really are not. So if you are a home owner and your Real Estate agent tells you he or she knows that you can stay in the house for x amount of time and that they guarantee that the bank will give you this or that, that should be a red flag! make sure you are working with a competent agent and also an attorney that also knows what he or she is doing, just because they have Esq. at the back of their name does not make them an expert. There are some questions you may want to ask that attorney and realtor and it is very simple:

#1 Ask the realtor if he works with a Short Sale Attorney

#2 Ask the Attorney hoe many Shore Sales they have completed

That is it, then also ask for references, a good agent and good attorney can make the difference between a successful short sale and one that does not work at all.

        Nutley Buyer’s Agent Boosts Short Sale Odds

        Last month, the number of new foreclosures listed nationally barely crept upward — even as average sale prices leapt dramatically. Realtytrac compiles the numbers, and they show a sizeable 10%+ jump in foreclosure sales prices from July to August. Of course, homes listed as foreclosures and short sales still close at prices markedly lower than homes sold in traditional transactions, but that rise in price seems to say that more buyers are feeling confident that a home purchased now will look like a wise move in the future.

        If you have been looking at the distressed property market in Nutley, these numbers suggest that the short sale and foreclosure possibilities are still being created — and that the value they represent is getting a boost of market verification. But before anyone rushes out to take advantage of that market, it’s a good idea to consider enlisting the help of a buyer’s agent. It’s no exaggeration to say that a great buyer’s agent can help make or break a short sale.

        Helping you find a price that works is one of the most valuable services a buyer’s agent will supply. Banks will turn down a short sale if they determine it is possible to sell a home at a price closer to its market value. Nobody wants to overpay — but you won’t get a house by overplaying your hand, either.  A knowledgeable Nutley buyer’s agent with a local market track record can be invaluable when it comes to determining how the price you are contemplating is likely to be received at the bank.

        As Realtytrac’s report suggest, it’s a fast-moving market. Anyone who has fallen in love with a house only to learn that theirs was the least attractive offer knows the sting of underestimating the market.  An experienced buyer’s agent can help you determine if it is likely that there are multiple offers on a home — and whether a bidding war is likely to ensue.  If you want that house, a savvy buyer’s agent can be your secret weapon.

        In the larger picture, stepping back from the sometimes emotional side of the process, a well-versed Nutley buyer’s agent can help you determine if a home offered as a short sale is a good buy overall. Even when a home is priced well below market value, some wind up needing costly repairs that consume the cash saved on the purchase price. You need to compare apples to apples — a great buyer’s agent can help you compare the potential real cost of buying a home that initially might have appeared to be available at an irresistible discount.

        If you are curious about Nutley homes in the short sale and foreclosure markets, I am standing by to put my experience to work for you. Supplying the knowledge that helps make excellent long-term decisions — then applying strategies that put them into action – are the ways I’ve built a reputation for hard work and solid results.
