Lets do a poll here


Casting your vote below can be as easy as saying below "We prefer to use outside companies to negotiate our short sales" or "Heck no, we do it ourselves or have an assistant or designated person in the office negotiate them". 


Most of you know my personal stance for The Short Sale Specialist Network, and that we require all of OUR referrals to be worked in house, but MOST of the people on this forum do NOT receive listing assignments from us!  I want to hear what YOU prefer to do with you short sale files, and for agents who DO receive listings from us, what do you do with your other files??




***Update 9/1/11 - I was at the REO Expo in Dallas a few months ago.  An agent asked a panel this same question.  I watched David Sunlin (Loss Mit Pres. for BOA) say "An agent should NEVER, EVER use a 3rd party company to negotiate their short sales".  I then watched the head of Loss Mit for CITI and the department head for Freddie Mac who were sitting next to him both shake firmly their heads YES in agreement.  Regardless of what the 3rd party negotiation companies say, or what would now appear to be only a small percentage of agents say, 3rd party negotiations  aren't needed or wanted in the transactions.



Here are some video testimonials for our Short Sale Lead Machine websites from just a few of the agents who are utilizing them! More coming soon...

We insist on negotiating short sales ourselves after learning the hard way that you count rely on others to do the job.

I am a control freak - negotiate all my own. Do all the calls. I've learned there is less hassle or confusion this way. I can do 9 at a time before my head starts to spin. ;-}

I do it myself and strongly recommend against third parties.

I take care of all our short sale negotiations!

"Heck no, we do it ourselves....."

Some in house; some out sourced.
I do it all myself - I don't trust the 3rd party negotiators

Hey Mike, very good question in taking that vote. when you refer to 3rd party negotiator i would presume you are speaking about preferred members, which I think are very capable to handle that for you or your Co. So in that case I would say lets the members handle it for you.


I prefer to do the negotiations myself. I have better first hand knowledge of transaction and know in the end that I have done all I can to complete the transaction...
Hi, we prefer to negotiate these files ourselves.  No assistant.  Myself or Kim.  It always works out better for the client, buyers agent and buyer.
I do all my own negotiations since I'm the one the sellers hired.

"Heck no, we do it ourselves or have an assistant or desigtnated person in the office negotiate them."

Heck no, do it ourselves!
