Chicago IL – Are you looking for a Chicago Realtor that specializes in short sales. It is important that you pick the right agent. Many agents turn down short sale listings because they are unfamiliar with the process. These transactions are much more difficult and complicated than your average real estate transaction.
Because of the foreclosure process, you usually only have one chance at a short sale. If your first agent isn’t competent, then you risk losing your house to foreclosure. Then you have to wait another 5-7 years to buy your next house. First, ask the agent you are interviewing why they qualify to help you. Do they have any special short sale training or designations? Many agents have taken specialized training and education. They care about being up to date with the current trends in the market.
Next ask them how much experience they have selling short sales. An agent who has closed a few short sales is a lot better prepared than an agent that has not. You want someone experienced working for you.
Who is your lender? Ask the agent is they have closed any short sales with your lender. Every lender handles short sales a little bit differently. If your lender is ABC Lender and the agent has experience with ABC Lender, then they already know the process. Your agent will be prepared because they are familiar with that lenders’ process.
After that, ask the agent how they negotiate their short sales? They may do the follow up themselves. Or, they may hire a competent title company or loss mitigation company to do it for them. Either way is fine. Just make sure the person handling your file is suited for the job. Thinking about a short sale? Visit www.ShortSaleSuperMan.com for information on Chicago short sales.

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.
