Home Buying in Surf City>Question Details

Vincent, Home Buyer in Princeton, NJ

Can anyone recommend an agent who handles a lot of purchases through foreclosures and short sales in the Topsail Beach area?

Asked by Vincent, Princeton, NJ Thu Dec 16, 2010

I want someone who is really familer w/ the process and paperwork so the potential purchase can go as smoothly as possible.

Also, it seems as though most of the defaulted loans are with Wells Fargo? Is that correct?

Check with Lewis Realty. Ask for Christina. She is from the area deals with all types of sales & works with people out if state. Her knowledge, achievements, and abilities are what you want in an agent. Good luck!

Hi Vincent,

You need to find a Realtor that carries the SFR designaiton. ( Short Sales and Foreclosure Reseouce) The SFR is NOT the cure all for short sales, but usually, agents taht have taken this designation course have a greater interest and experience level with short sales then the average agent. You NEED an agent that knows the ropes and has closed these transactions in the past in order to help you.

if you agent starts out with.. Yeah, short sales take 6-8 months to close.. walk away and find another agent. Quickly. That would read to me that they really have no idea on what is necessary and what process is involved to get an expeditious answer from a bank or Realtor.
