Why Your Agent Should Check That Appraisals Are Accurate For Your Chicago Short Sale

Posted on October 17th, 2011 in All Articles, Short Selling/Buying.


Chicago IL – The biggest threat to your short sale is a high appraisal. Which is why your agent needs to make sure the appraisal is accurate.

There are a lot of opinions on how to ensure the appraisal is correct and accurate. You need to check and make sure your agent is willing to do the extra work.

I will tell you what happened to an agent that decided it was too much work. This agent decided not to do the extra work. Then, short sales started getting turned down for no reason at all.

This agent thought they were doing everything right. They couldn’t see how they were doing wrong. The buyers were only willing to offer so much and the bank only willing to accept so little.

The buyer’s offers were higher than the property would have sold for after being foreclosed on by the bank. So they kept turning down the buyer’s offers. “We think the house is worth 300k”, they would say.

“But, we think the house is worth 250k”, replied the buyers. The short sales became more and more difficult.

Here is the good news. Now this agent checks to make sure every single appraisal is accurate. Today most of their short sales are being approved.

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.
