Bergen County Short Sales: How To Avoid Any Surprises When Selling A Short Sale

Bergen County NJ – Many agents and buyers are scared of short sales. Here is something that I do to make the short sale process easier for the home seller.

Before I start negotiations with your lender, I will have the attorney order a complete title search. Here is why I do that. I want to know all the costs upfront, before I give the bank a number.

If I don’t do this, then the short sale lender will approve the short sale at a certain price. We can get to the closing table and discover there are unforeseen costs.

Then we have to go back and re-negotiate with the short sale lender. This can be tough because they already have a higher number in mind.

Sometimes you have to start the short sale negotiations all over again. That can delay the short sale by 2-3 months, if not longer.

This trips up many agents and causes them to bad mouth short sales. Extra costs can show up in the form of higher than expected Homeowner’s Association Dues, Property Taxes, and other costs.

The title company will do a complete title search. They will get an estimated payoff from the Homeowner’s Association, and estimate the payoff for the taxes.

Since I take this pre-caution I have found short sales to be easy and fun. Before you hire a short sale agent, ask them about the short sale process. If they don’t mention this step, then find another short sale agent.
