    As time passes and the truth starts to come out we will see more statements like the one above come to light.  It seems that the passion all the short sale negotiators muster up to close a short sale is only met with stalling tactics and institutional red tape.

    It is no wonder that articles like the one below will be more and more relevant to short sale negotiations and loan modifications.

    Instead of rehashing the article I am including it here for your perusal.

    I hope that the days to come will shed more light on these corrupt practices.  My only hope that new corrupt practices do not begin to creep up to cover their past bad acts.

  • Free short sale foreclosure help information... More sites like these should be available!

    Posted Under: Home Selling in New York  |  January 11, 2010 10:50 PM  |  1,896 views  |  No comments

    As I do my daily web browsing I come across many help me get out of foreclosure or help with short sale websites all trying to charge people.  I am glad to see that some sites still give free information.  One such site is http://short-sale-foreclosure-help.com  another site and http://hud.gov/foreclosure.

    The clients I come in contact with are all under tremendous stress... One thing that contributes to this stress is lack of information.  I notice that once I sit down with them, take the time and discuss the short sale process as well as foreclosure ramifications they get a grasp of what is actually available to them.

    It is my hope as it is my practice that even when I am not sure of something we find out together.  No one person can know it all, and those that say they do usually know less than the average professional. 

    Another thing that comes to mind while writing this short blog is that information that may seem common to you and me is anything but common to our clients.  We need to assume that our clients, respectfully, are unaware what a short sale is or what an approval letter contains or does not contain.  We need to create a road map for our clients using these resources that are on the Internet such as the sites above to educate our clients, friends and colleagues.

    Wishing you a great real estate day tomorrow.

  • The Short Sale Lawyer? Who me!

    I have been called many things in my many years of life, but being called The Short Sale Lawyer takes the cake.  How did this happen?  When did this happen?  Well for the most part I take it as a compliment.  I was speaking with a loss mitigator the other day, after weeks of negotiations, and he referred to me as The Short Sale Lawyer from NY.  I actually did not pay attention to his comment, but after the negotiation was completed he explained to me how much he appreciated working with what he termed the short sale lawyer.  He went on to say that he has been receiving calls from what he surmised to be high school kids negotiating these short sales calling themselves SHORT SALE NEGOTIATORS. (I hope he was joking)

    Well I was taken aback a bit and thought to myself, who are these so called short sale negotiators.  That is where I found no answer or did I. There are many Realtors who negotiate short sales, many lawyers who negotiate short sales.... So who are these short sale negotiators who are not a Realtor or an Attorney?  I do not know!

    It can be anyone from an office assistant to a Realtor's boyfriend.  This is not to say they are not competent or trained, but who are they accountable tooooo?  No one.

    In my opinion if your short sale is NOT negotiated by a Realtor or a Lawyer you should keep well informed on what is actually going on.  I have read and have been told by some Attorneys that Realtors should not be negotiating a short sale.  This is a gray area.  Is it practicing law?  In my opinion I feel that in a limited scope a Realtor can process a short sale and many are doing a fantastic job.

    Best of luck to all you in such a tough situation... but know there are people out there to help during your difficult situation.

  • Short Sales in Brooklyn and Queens on the Rise!

    We read everywhere that short sales are on the rise.  We hear and read on trulia and active rain that mortgage lenders are more willing to work with homeowners looking to sell their homes and negotiating a short sale settlement.  These are all true from what I am currently experiencing, however we cannot lose sight on how these short sales are being handled.

    There are many competent short sale negotiators who will assist your Realtor or the homeowner work through the myriad of issues with short sales, however there are many unscrupulous ones as well.

    When considering a Short Sale, interview the negotiator find out if they are licensed in Real Estate or if they are an Attorney.  I know that at this point a loss mitigator need not be licensed so that leaves many of us not knowing what qualifications these negotiators have when we place our largest investment in their hands.  I have seen many homes fall into foreclosure due to negligent negotiators.

    It is not enough to have a great Realtor for your short sale you need a great loss mitigation negotiator.
