need advanced short sale course recommendation - Posted by Brian_wa

My short sale biz has grown drastically. However, the course that I currently have doesn’t have a very thorough selection of the following:

  1. Sample brochures with detailed information about short sale and the process itself to give to potential sellers
  2. Good contracts to use with sellers
  3. Perhaps even a “short sale” web site template that I could buy that has basic short sale info

Any idea where I could find one that has such info?

Brian: I wouldn’t look for a course. Search the web. You will find an
amazing array of short-sale sites, blogs and articles directed towards
the homeowner. Real estate agents are going after short sales like
nobody’s business in many areas. They are marketing to sellers to list
their property subject to getting the lender to discount. I think it’s
working, in terms of getting listings. I have no idea how many they
actually close.

There was one site I read, owned by a broker in Grand Rapids, MI. Her
site is totally full of information for the homeowner and attempts to
explain and answer all possible questions about a short sale. There
are many like hers.

I suggest searching the web, finding articles and posts you like and
making your own brochure and/or marketing materials.

Short sale is now a term that is becoming common enough that the
average home owner knows what you are talking about. I believe in
the coming year there will be less to explain about the process and
more to explain about what you can do for the homeowner that other
investors and (and agents) can’t. Kristine
