Getting the Buyer and Seller on the Same Page

Short Sale Road Rules: Getting Buyer and Seller on Same Page


One of the most neglected, and yet, most important part of a successful short sale is getting both buyer and seller on the same page.  This may stem from the traditional way of thinking on a traditional “retail” sale:  It’s “Us against them.”  This does not apply to short sales, and if you can over come this mentality, your closing success will…


Interesting article about short sales and flipping

Posted on December 1, 2011 at 3:07pm 23 Comments


As many of you know, there is a huge debate here regarding the flip, and whether or not it is legal (it is) or ethical (it MAY be) I am not attempting to resurrect that conversation, but I would urge you to read some of the comments made by licensed agents.  It clearly shows the…

Hey Joseph! Thanks for the info you shared in the DIL discussion. We're just starting to see them crop up in Northern VA. I figured the benefits were not necessarily in the sellers favor, but since none of my clients have ever been granted a DIL, I wasn't certain. Now that my understanding has been clarified, I know what to say to people who are contemplating DILs over short sales.

That would be great, Mike. Like I said before, you should consider a partnership with us as a mitigating option for members. It would be another revenue stream for you, and a service for your members.
