Gainesville – How to Process a Short Sale File
Anson Properties, who successfully handles short sale listings, understands the time sensitivity of the short sale process. During the listing period, short sale lenders are observing the status of the property. If it takes a period of time for the listing to be approved, the lenders may request an extension of the short sale to be listed. It is necessary to make sure to get duration of one year for the listings to avoid trouble. If it is near on the time-frame given, that’s the instant wherein we obtain another extension for the listing.
Aside from having an annual period for the short sale listing, there are several points to take note while the listing duration is on-going. Here they are:
• Have a Marketing List of all the online and offline postings you have done. Track the post that you are listing on and the date of posting. Take notes of all the internet sites where you are posting on, like your blog, Trulia, Postlets, Realbird, Craigslist, Activerain, and others.
• Provide an efficient showing schedule. MLS can provide a schedule system for showings where it produces a response form through email that can be printed along with other showings that the system has generated.
The showing sheet involves the name of agent, their phone number, brokerage name, time, and date. In the lower portion, you can also add a comment area for prospect buyers to fill in.
• Store your Listing Files in an organize manner. There are several digital platforms wherein you can keep a soft copy of all your listing files. Aside from keeping digital files, it is best if you have a folder of the files in your very own office. The digital files are just a back-up for online transactions and other matters.
• For every short sale listing, keep a pricing history. In MLS, a pricing history is kept but it is important to have a paper file on-hand for emergency needs. You can keep them on the listing files as well.
If it is necessary, a seller will sign into a contract that Anson Properties are authorized to reduce the price of their home if it is needed in order to sell the property.
