Need a Realtor for Short Sale in Gilroy, CA

Asked by Stanley, Gilroy, CA Wed Apr 15, 2009

I need an experience Realtor to list my home as a short sale. You should be able to negotiate with the lender to preferrably record the short sale as "paid as agreed" and not just "settled."

There are alot of details that need to be addressed. However, there are also other options to doing a short sale. Are you selling because you have to due to the market swing or a bad loan? Or, are you relocating? Short sales are just one of the strategies available, and not always the best option. Interview at least three top producers in the area and check references. Good luck!

You need at DEFICIENCY JUDGEMENT RELEASE from the bank, investor/lender for the amount of money you owe, less market value = short payoff. Many banks will try to negotiate for you to share in the loss, by asking for a promissory note for the difference owed, or ask you to come in with cash at close. No one has these monies these days, otherwise they wouldn't have to short-sale!!! Further, if you have a buyer in escrow, it can put a lot of pressure on the seller to sign that note in order to keep everyone happy. Don't do it, unless you've been advised by an attorney. Please be aware of this. The process can take 3-6 months after a notice of default has been filed.
