When we last left the Short Sale story we were writing on “How they should work.”
Today we’ll look at how they really work….it ain’t pretty.
First, we’ll disregard the “Slim Shady” Realtor’s that want to one side all their Shorts and always come up with an excuse as to availability of the property; which pretty much eliminates about 50% of all shorts.
Second, we’ll disregard the sellers that are clueless as to what a short sale is due too much Google/Bing/Facebook/Slim Shady Realtors/Family members/TV; which eliminates about another 25%.
Third, we’ll disregard the family/friend fraud aspect and there goes another 10%.
So we’re left with about 15% of all shorts being….Shorts.
Now if they worked like they should, we would not need dear old Jav.
Since they NEVER work like they should we can make the experience considerably less painful.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s still going to be painful, just consider us your “Klonopin” during the process.
How can I ease the pain? Well for starters, I know the process on both sides and for better or for worse am asked to drive short sale deals by other Realtors.
Why because I’ve done it many times before.
Hey, practice makes perfect…
