Do you ever want to just reach through the phone and slap the person on the other end?
I was speaking with a perspective seller. I could hardly get a word in. I understand she was upset, but she barely let me explain things. She thought she knew it all. Why? Because she's also a real estate agent.
However, this real estate agent is about to be foreclosed on. She is almost 2 years behind on her mortgage and they've given her a date of Dec 4 for the foreclosure. I tried to explain a short sale to her. Did I mention she's a licensed real estate agent?? She had absolutely no clue about a short sale and how they work. Once I finally was able to explain things, she let me talk a little, but then back to her own agenda.
I doubt she'll list for a short sale because she won't take the time to educate herself further on it. She's so fed up with Bank of America that she rather the house go into foreclosure. Yes, I told her a short sale is the better route, but just like "regular" sellers in a bad situation, even real estate agents in bad situations don't always know when to shut up and accept help.
If you're a home owner in or around the Austin Texas area, please don't let the bank just take your house. There are other ways for a graceful exit. Let me help you help yourself with a short sale. You'll be happy you took control!
