Short sales and foreclosures are a unique niche most agents will encounter at some point but frequently don’t have the skills or expertise to handle. Short sale negotiator and expert Angela Burton joins us to share her background, how she helps negotiate short sales and what it takes to work this niche.
Takeaways + Tactics
1. You don’t have to be a short sale expert yourself - you can bring in a short sale expert to help you negotiate with the banks and give your client the best service
2 Short sales take an average of 3-6 months
3. Beware of buyers wanting to buy a short sale - your buyer agent fee cannot come out of the listing side, so your buyers are responsible for paying you directly
We believe real estate could radically change in the next 5-10 years, so you may need to shift gears to stay in the business. You might even need to learn new types of transactions and a new way to manage transactions for your clients by putting together a custom team of outside experts. Take Angela’s advice and binge on educational content on YouTube and take advantage of company training programs. They might lead to whole new source of business for you.
