I would check with family, friends and work associates to recommend some local realtors. I would interview and ask if they have any experience and what their experience is in the short sale market.

OK Great. You don't charge the homeowner. Nobody should.

Now please tell us why flipping with an option contract is illegal?

I'm still waiting for your reply. You're an expert. You said it was illegal. Why not explain?

I just read Irene's answer - and I couldn't disagree MORE. Nothing personal - but I can tell you while that's important - HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THE LISTING AGENT IS A "SPECIALIST"?

And more than that - who's representing YOUR interests as a buyer? Who's educating you? The SELLERS agent????

No.

Brendan - find a quality agent in your area who works with BUYERS. You have your attorney to protect you legally - but your real estate agent helps you ultimately to be educated about the market.

I can assist with finding an agent - contact me.

A good short sale specialist can work anywhere...many times we never make face to face contact with our clients but get them the results they need so they can close. Most realtor offices will market that they can do short sales when in reality many are not very experienced and prefer not to do them...that, is not someone you need.

***BEWARE of anyone claiming to offer anything out of the ordinary in this business!! As someone who has literally CLOSED thousands of short sales myself, no agent for the most part can control the time length of a short sale!! The process can take several weeks to several months depending on MANY, MANY factors, almost of which are 100% out of ANY agents control!

ONLY choose an experienced and honest short sale agent with a proven track record -

I see many good answers here. I get these questions all the time. My name is Bob Hibbard SFR, Certified in Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource by the NAR; I’m with Nothnagle Realtors in Rochester, NY. I was in one of the very first groups of local Realtors to achieve this designation and I have a background in finance and Real Estate investing in both retail & wholesale. As most Realtors know this area of Real Estate is constantly changing and can be very complicated. As you may be aware of with the current problems banks are encountering with Foreclosures (proving title, etc.), many are much more willing to move their inventory of homes via Short Sales than before. However it is critical that you work with an experienced Realtor who specializes in this area to get them closed as timely as possible. This can be a complicated transaction, but done correctly they can be a good buy. Here is a short version of the process. First you must have a motivated Seller who is willing to cooperate and do all that is required by the bank in a very timely fashion, if not, don’t bother. Then the Agent must know how to price the property correctly, it’s a balancing act to do the best we can for our Clients and still be credible with the lenders! Let’s be real, if a buyer can’t get a discount why even bother with a Short Sale? From there you must have a preapproved, and educated Buyer going into the deal, who is willing to see the process through. Next, the Agent must know or learn very quickly the lender’s process and procedures intimately and turn in all the required paperwork, with all the I’s dotted and T’s crossed ASAP. Do this; use a good attorney as a team member and they can be a great way to buy a home with instant equity or a great deal for investors! I hope this helps. Learn more on my site or contact me.
Check your area for a knowledgeable agent. Email: Bob@BobHibbard.com, : http://WWW.BobHibbard.com Ph: 585-671-1710.

I know that short sales take a long time, but after 2 1/2 years I would certainly think that this person would have already bought or sold, whatever they were planning.

You definately will want to interview a few agents before making a decision. Experience is everything when it comes to short sales. Of course, there should also be no cost to you as well! Also beware of the "home buyers" out there, most of them are only out to dupe your lender and flip it to a REAL buyer. Find an agent who will represent YOUR best interests in the transaction, NOT their own! Try these http://www.newjerseyshortsalespecialist.com

To the JAX agent...you're an expert? A short sale expert? I call BS.

You said:

"only want to put in a "$10 option contract" and then illegally flip your home to a REAL home buyer"

What is illegal about it?

Give us specifics from an expert like yourself. It should be no problem, right?

Is an option contract illegal?

Is it the $10?

Is flipping illegal?

Tell us.

You must make sure you have an agent that can put a full package together. This includes everything from getting the sellers information in a complete package with the offer, and complete contract with money in escrow. If the agent leaves any part out, your short sale can last 6 month only to hear NO from the bank.

Our company sells short sale properties on Long Island and the surrounding area. We have been doing this for quite some time and all I can say from what i have seen is that you MUST use someone who is experienced in the short sale process. We have seen many homeowners/buyes being taken advantage of by companies that have little or no experience although they claim that they do. Please feel free to contact us for information. We are located in Melville, Long Island, but deal with Queens, Brooklyn, and New York City as well.

Short sale is a specialized field that takes a broker expert in real estate value, negotiating and closing the sale. It takes a team of experts, a broker to close the sale from a real estate perspective and an attorney that can close the sale from a legal perspective; one fact for certain, all parties to the transaction must be satisfied to close. Every short sale residential or commercial real estate transaction will vary from circumstance to each sale resulting in sold price to the acquisition. The range to acceptance of the difference owed to the lender or investor can be 100% forgiveness to the principal seller or deal with a bankruptcy. One common factor to every transaction to the outcome of any short sale is the team representing/brokering the deal. That's a matter of fact from thirty two years experience!

Brendan -

Word to the wise - Buying a short sale takes patience and LOW expectations - and I don't mean LOW price either.

Expect to pay up to 90% of the fair market value. Banks are desperate, but unless they know you as an investor - they negotiate hard-headed, poorly and without emotion.

The KEY is working with the right agent who can Pre-Qual a property - by simply asking the right questions of the listing agent. I know these quesions... :)

You can call me at my corporate office - 877-765-3123. If I can't help you - I know a few excellent agents in Manhattan.

What is your price range?
What is your exit strategy (goal for purchase - investment or personal)?
Type of property (commercial or residential)?
Are you Pre-approved for a mortgage?
Are you Cash buyer?
Are you looking to buy second notes?
