As a Certified San Jose Short Sale Specialist I see myself as a public servant as well as a San Jose Real Estate Professional.
Not only do San Jose short sales require that I spend significantly more time with a San Jose homeowner, San Jose short sales require significantly more time, effort and energy in collecting seller documents, processing the paperwork, following up with the short sale lender and negotiating the approval. Add to that the fact that once we actually have short sale approval, the buyer may elect not to move forward with the sale and the process starts all over again as we find another buyer. This process can take six to nine months and longer!
Why do short sale lenders, banks, loan servicers and investors expect short sale specialists to accept significantly less than what we are customarily paid? They know what we will not jeopardize the sellers opportunity for a successful San Jose short sale. It’s a gamble any true short sale professional will not take. The risk of creating a lose/lose situation is far too great! Believe me I would love to tell the negotiators to take a flying leap!
What if we just said NO?
Where would the lenders be without real estate agents willing to do whatever it takes to help homeowners avoid foreclosure?
Lenders would certainly lose more money than what it would cost to pay a civil commission and yet they have no regard, concern or respect for what short sale specialists do to help San Jose homeowners avoid foreclosure and ultimately help lenders recover as much of their loss as possible.
This is why I see myself as a public servant as well as a real estate professional who specializes in San Jose short sales. Helping San Jose homeowners avoid foreclosure not only helps the homeowner, it serves the greater good of the community as well. I will continue to do whatever it takes to help San Jose homeowners avoid foreclosure and serve the community in which I live and work.
