If you want some advice on who to retain and what steps you need to take to prepare for the short sale process before you move forward, let me know.
I've worked with many agents and attorneys...I know the better ones that get the job done. Most agents will say they do short sales...ask for specific details on their results.
For example, how many short sales they handled for the past 12 months? how many of them resulted in the seller having to contribute cash at closing? what was the average amount of the cash contribution? how long did the process take? what they do specifically to adjust the listing price to generate a purchase offer?...etc. Many will say they handle short sales...Due your due diligence and make sure you don't get misled.
