They must have the ability to understand HUD-1 Closing Statements. The lenders will want a copy of the closing statement, also call a HUD-1.

Most people in the lender’s short sale departments are very familiar with HUD-1s. The person negotiating with you will need to answer any questions they have about the HUD and know how to make changes to it.

They must know the short sale seller’s rights. Most short sale transactions fall under certain guidelines. The lenders don’t always like to follow those guidelines.

They might ask the seller to accept a promissory note when the guidelines don’t require that. You could be stuck repaying thousands of dollars unnecessarily.

Make sure the person negotiating on your behalf has a complete understanding of your rights.

They must know how short sale negotiators think. Short sale negotiators don’t just approve every short sale.

There is a process they must follow before approving or rejecting a short sale offer. If the person doesn’t understand then they won’t be able to work your file thru the process to receive an approval. Thinking about a short sale? Visit for more information on Chicago short selling.

Phil Buoscio, Better Living Realty – Buoscio Brokerage, Inc., and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
