Chicago Short Sales: What To Do When A Short Sale Negotiator Gets An Attitude

Chicago Short Sales: What To Do When A Short Sale Negotiator Gets An Attitude

Posted on April 25th, 2012 in All Articles.

Chicago IL – Most short sale negotiators are professional. They understand the seriousness of their jobs. They work hard to educate themselves on the industry and market trends.

They are friendly and fun to work with. This is one of the things I like about selling short sales for a living. The downside is that every once in a while a negotiator will get an attitude.

For whatever reason they have decided to go on a power trip. They start asking for unnecessary paperwork. Or, they nitpick the paperwork you send to them.

Most agents just kowtow to the negotiator. They think that the negotiator has all of the power. I have found that isn’t true. The negotiator has very limited power.

After all, they don’t own the bank. They aren’t the one who will be losing money on the loan. The fact is most banks lose a substantial amount of money when they turn down a short sale.

As an example, a bank turned down a $190,000 offer on a short sale. The property sold about 18 months later. But, this time it didn’t sell for $190,000. It sold for $165,000.

Not only did that bank lose $25,000 on the sales price. They also paid the property taxes and insurance for that amount of time. In addition, they were unable to lend that money and earn interest.

I estimate they lost an additional $15,000 when you factor in the interest. That’s a $40,000 loss. When a short sale negotiator gets an attitude I simply remind them of this.

And I tell them I will be holding them accountable if they turn down the short sale and the bank loses more money as a result. Needless to say, they lose the attitude. Thinking about a short sale? Learn more about Chicago short sales at

Important Notice

phillip 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.
