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...

"Heck no, we do it ourselves or have an assistant or designated person in the office negotiate them".
We handle all our own short sale negotiations
I do my own as an agent and then I know exactly what is going on.
"Heck no, we do it ourselves or have an assistant or designated person in the office negotiate them".
No do it in house, I had two deals with outside negotiators and they both went to the bank. Do it in house!

We contracted an attorney to help out but must be handled "in-house" so to speak.

 

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

I handle them in house.

We negotiate our own short sales. I have been approached by 3rd party negotiators but so far, have declined. I am dealing with an agent right now who is using a 3rd party and it is the worst short sale experience I have ever had. Communication is poor and there is a lot of confusion.
No 3rd no way...close them all
I do all of mine in house so I know what is exactly going on and I can control the situation better. Much smoother short sales
We do this in house.  Why pay someone else to do something we can do just as well or better.
We prefer to use outside companies to negotiate our short sales.

As the banks and lenders will pay the negotiators, why do it in house and subject ourselves to all that time, aggravation and added inconvenience? We do stay on top of it, but it's one less burden we don't have to do. And, by outsourcing the negotiations, we can focus on helping people buy and sell real estate.
