North Metro Atlanta – 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.
Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.
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.
