A Common Northeast OH Short Sale Case Mistake: Waiting To Long To Submit The Contract To The Short Sale Lender

Northeast OH – Short sales have a reputation for taking a long time. But, they can drag on even longer if the paperwork isn’t submitted to the lender in a timely manner.

When the Stop Foreclosure Institute first started doing short sales, we were hesitant to submit anything to the lender until we had a 100% complete package.

That caused the short sales to drag out a lot longer. After a little while, we learned to submit the paperwork as quickly as possible to the lender.

It usually takes 30 to 60 days for the lender to assign a negotiator to the file. That gives us plenty of time to track down any missing paperwork.

We realized that we were wasting time if we waited 30 days until everything was perfect and then submitted the file. There is a common myth that you shouldn’t submit short sale paperwork until it is 100% complete.

Let me explain why that myth just isn’t true. A lot of lender have different special forms they wanted filled out specifically for them.

“Oh, you need the buyer and seller to sign the ABC Bank Contract Addendum”, the short sale negotiator tells us. Besides, most short sale negotiators want things done certain a way.

Because of this it is almost impossible to put together a 100% perfect short sale file that will have exactly the way the lender wants it. So make sure your agent submits your file quickly and follows up with the short sale negotiator to see if anything is needed.
