For my blog today I wanted to talk with :k1: property owners about any possible downsides to completing a short sale. I get asked this questions a lot due to the many misconceptions of a short sale and it is important to know the facts. Of course any homeowner would prefer to never have to consider a short sale but drastic changes in your life may require you to sell your home. If you find yourself in this situation a short sale is great option to consider to get out from under your mortgage. One of the few downsides to a short sale is the inability to purchase a home for at least two years. There are some exceptions to this and having an experienced agent may help you purchase a home sooner than normal. While a short sale is not right for every :k1: homeowner there are few downsides and should be considered if your home needs to sell fast.

Specialized Loan Servicing Short Sale Information

Hello everyone, this is Kelly Cook with the Kelly Cook Real Estate Group in :k1:; we’re your short sale and real estate specialist for the :k1: area and specialize in helping homeowners find alternatives to foreclosure through the means of a short sale. You can find us online at www.KellyCookHomes.com.

Today we’re addressing Specialized Loan Servicing (SLS) short sales. They are one of the larger loan servicers in the country and they have several different offices throughout the country. They are encouraging homeowners that are behind on their mortgages to look at a few different options because a large portion of the portfolios that they service are in default. That being said, one of the first things you’ll see if you go to their website are loan forbearance, loan modification and short sale. We’ve found out that a loan modification through SLS is very difficult primarily because they don’t give you a principal reduction. They may give you a lower rate, but they’ll just tack that amount on to the back end of the loan. A short sale is something they really encourage and that’s where we step in because we’re short sale specialists. We’ve dealt with them many times and they’re not that bad to deal with. We have a few decent contacts and we look for those contacts to use for you.

Again, we’re one of Arizona’s largest real estate teams, so if you’d like to call us at our Phoenix, AZ or Columbus, OH office, please do. You can also email us at info@kellycookhomes.com or visit www.MyHomeValueCalculator.com.

Radian is notorious for being brutal to deal with. What we have done is we have purposely seek out a contact within Radian when doing one of our short sales, that was half-way pleasant to work with. We just got to know him and learn a little more about the company and why they deal with certain things the way they do. We looked at the financial models in terms of negotiating settlements and things of that nature so we can help our clients when that situation arises we can do whatever we can to reach a plausible settlement.

How To Short Sale Your Home

Hello everyone and welcome again to the Kelly Cook Real Estate Group’s short sale blog with Keller Williams in :k1:. We specialize in helping homeowners in the :k1: area find alternatives to foreclosure by the means of a short sale. One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive, which is a very good question, is, “How do I short sale my house, what’s the process and how do I get started?”

We can break this down into three simple steps, the first being contacting a qualified realtor or real estate team that does short sales. At the Kelly Cook Real Estate Group, we’ve done close to 400 short sales over the past five years and are still doing a lot of short sales. Right now we have over 60 properties that we are short selling for clients. Contact an agent that has experience with all different types of banks and take their guidance. The second step is to set up a free consultation either in person or over the phone where the short sale agent can lay out for you what will happen during the rest of the short sale process. Step three is to have the short sale agent meet you at your property, take some pictures and get familiar with it so that we can market it to investors or other buyers.

It’s a very simple process and the nice thing about a short sale is that you don’t have to have it in tip-top condition because it is sold as is. If there are repairs that need to be made to the property, that will be reflected in the bank approved price. That’s our job to make sure we get the price approved for you based upon the condition of your property so that you don’t have to go out of your way and spend your money to get it into the best condition.

There are many other things and intricacies that go with a short sale, so give us a call today. We’d love to help you in doing a short sale on your property today. You can reach us by telephone at either our Arizona or Ohio office, email us at info@kellycookhomes.com or visit our short sale calculator at www.MyHomeValueCalculator.com to see what your home is worth and how long before it breaks even again.

Our Wells Fargo Experience Could Be The Difference In Your Short Sale Approval

Hello everyone my name is Kelly Cook with the Kelly Cook Real Estate Group, your :k1: short sale specialist, thank you for your time today. Our team of short sale experts are working with :k1: homeowners every day and I use this blog to share valuable information on the numerous options you the homeowner have for avoiding foreclosure. If you are currently behind on your mortgage or have seen the value of your home greatly diminished take a minute to browse my website or call my office directly to learn about your real estate options.

For my blog today I wanted to talk with :k1: homeowners who have their mortgage through Wells Fargo about the opportunity to complete a short sale. Wells Fargo is one of the biggest banks in the country and in turn own a very large portion of the mortgage portfolio’s in this country. I have dealt with their short sale staff on numerous occasions over the last few years and have been able to get plenty of approvals for :k1: homeowners. Of late, the staff at Wells Fargo has been a little harder to work with especially when negotiating to have all deficiencies waived and the selling price be accepted as payment in full. For reasons such as this it is important to have a trusted short sale agent handle your file instead of someone new to the short sale process. I personally have been working with the loss mitigation staff at the Des Moines offices of Wells Fargo since 2006 and have the experience to ensure you a fast approval.

If you have questions on your Wells Fargo mortgage, or any other lender, or are already planning to short sale your home fill out a contact form on my website or call me directly to get started today. On my website you can also find our Short Or Stay Calculator that may help you determine if a short sale is right for you. Thank you for your time today and I hope to hear from you soon at the Kelly Cook Real Estate Group in :k1:.

Can I Stay Current On My Mortgage And Still Short Sale?

Hello, Kelly Cook here with the Kelly Cook Real Estate Group, your :k1: short sale specialist. We can be found online at www.KellyCookHomes.com; we’re part of the Keller Williams Realty network here in :k1:. We specialize in helping homeowners find alternatives to foreclosure through the means of a short sale.

The topic we’re discussing today is a pretty interesting one because it has quite a few misconceptions about it. It’s a question asked frequently and that is, “If I’m current on my mortgage can I still short sale?” The quick answer is yes, you absolutely can. We have completed short sales for clients while they have stayed current throughout the entire process, however, it’s a challenging battle to fight with the banks; this is unfortunately the reality of the situation. A small percentage of all the short sales we’ve ever done have involved the client staying current on their mortgage. It’s something that we’re more than happy to take on and attempt the short sale because we can’t advise a homeowner to either miss a payment or remain current. That’s not our job; our job is to do the very best to try and short sale your home. If you are behind on your mortgage, that does motivate the bank to work a little bit harder to get your short sale approved.

So, yes, you can remain current on your home and still do a short sale, but it depends on a few specific scenarios. Give us a call today because we’d love to talk to you about it and your specific situation. Give us a call or email us at info@kellycookhomes.com. You can also go to MyHomeValueCalculator.com and it will instantly tell you what your home is worth. If you’re underwater, you can determine from there if a short sale is right for you. Thanks again for joining me; I look forward to helping you with your situation and determining if a short sale is right for you.
