A Common Northeast OH Short Sale Myth: Short Sales Are Adversarial

Northeast OH – Many people mistakenly think that a short sale is adversarial. “I will fight that banker and convince them to let me short sale and walk away from the upside down debt”, they think to themselves.

That is not how short sales actually work. Most negotiations are not adversarial. In fact, most short sale negotiators are just normal people.

They go to work each day and go thru their files. There is a lot of paperwork and reports that have to be filed. Most of them don’t get out of bed looking forward to a tough negotiation.

They simply have to process their file in accordance with the guidelines. The banks have budgeted money to write down mortgages on short sales.

The CEO (or someone similar) at the bank sits down and talks about the loans in default. We have X number of loans in default and we can expect to lose X percentage on each loan.

That means that I have to set aside 10 Million Dollars to cover the projected losses on those loans. He will then give the person managing the short sales guidelines.

Those guidelines will be used to keep the losses at 10 Million Dollars or less. This is why short sale negotiations are no adversarial. They banks already know they are losing money.

They have resigned themselves to losing it. Now they just have to go thru the process and minimize the losses as much as possible.

They know that a short sale reduces losses by an average of 20% compared to a foreclosure. That makes them eager to negotiate a short sale with you.
