Hey Short Sale Listing Agents Out There! HELP ME OUT would ya?

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Short SaleI find myself having to call the listing agents of short sales all the time with the same questions, over and over and over. Even the “famous” ones (well they are the worst actually) do little in their listings to help me out (or other real estate agents for that matter). Please short sale listing agents, note answers to the following in the agent remarks of your listings so I don’t have to bug you!!!!! Every short sale is different!

  1. How many lenders are involved? (of course I would prefer to know that Countrywide isn’t one of them)
  2. How many offers do you currently have on the home?
  3. Has the seller already accepted an offer and sent it to the bank? If so will they send additional offers through or will they only allow one through at a time making additional offers backup only?
  4. Has your seller given you permission to disclose what the highest offer is?
  5. What is your rough guess for a bank response time? About 3 months or possibly more than 6?
  6. Has the seller already turned in the hardship package to the bank(s) yet?
  7. Do you think the bank will accept your list price or did you underprice it to generate offers? (okay, I don’t expect you to answer that one)


REO Bank Owned Homes Just Listed Today 10/31/09. Pretty Big List Today.

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

bankUsually the weekend REO list is very short but today we have quite a collection.

I saw a condo for the John Ross in here today; I haven’t seen any bank owned pop up there for some time. If you don’t know where the John Ross Condominiums are just make a note of the Porland South Waterfront area. That’s were you see all the tall condo towers built down by the waterfront. Yes, they built too many and that’s why you can find an amazing deal there, however know that if you purchase there you will need to hold onto it for sometime as it’s going to take several years for that area to recover. If you think you can purchase and rent it out, think again… there are already an amazing number of rentals in the area. Interesting, I’m finding that corporate housing is being offerred in the area for recruits and job transfers until they are able to find permanent housing; GREAT idea! That could put Marriott Courtyards out of business!


If you want to tour any of these bank owned listings (and you aren’t already working with an agent), give me a call! -Kristie McD.
