Ask the right questions to find the right short sale specialist to work on your short sale. Don’t be shy to ask agents questions regarding how they work, and what they can do to help you. Consider the following questions before selecting your short sale agent.
1. How many short sales have you successfully negotiated?
Short sales are more complex than traditional home sales so experience is very important. Try to find an agent who has successfully negotiated at least 25 short sales, if possible.
2. What is your success rate for short sales?
A reliable short sale agent should close at least 80% over a long period of time.
3. Do you charge an up-front fee to negotiate short sales?
You should not pay an agent to negotiate a short sale. Avoid agents who charge fees up front.
4. Who pays the commission?
The mortgage lender should pay the commission and you should not have to pay for anything.
5. Have you worked with my lender before?
Each lender has a different short sale process, so you will need an agent who has experience with your lender on multiple short sales.
