I Am Trying To Buy A Northeast OH Short Sale. Can I Push The Process To Go Faster?

Northeast OH – Buyers often ask us how they can make the short sale process go faster. It is a common complaint.

Here is an example of the emailed we often receive. “I am trying to buy a short sale. It has been 4 months and we have heard nothing except that we are now on our 2nd negotiator, still with no contact from them.

I am getting very frustrated. Is there anything I can do on my end to try to push the process along, or is it all up to the agent?”

Unfortunately, there is little the buyer can do to speed up the process. It is up to whoever the seller or their realtor is using to negotiate the short sale with the bank.

If they don’t know what they are doing, then you are better of looking for another home to buy. But, here is what I recommend that agent’s working with the bank do to speed up the process.

1. Call the bank once or twice a week. Be the squeaky wheel. Your requests will be handle faster. Your file will be placed at the front of the line. Your file will be the first one that gets worked on.

2. Ask for more information. “Why is the file being held up? Who else needs to approve it? Why is the process taking so long? Who is going to lose money because of the delay? Who owns the loan?”

That is what the seller’s agent should be asking the bank. Now, what would happen if you started doing these same things to the person negotiation the short sale?

Yes, your file would be placed at the front of the line. You would get specific answers to your questions. You would know whether or not you should wait or go look for another home. Thinking about a short sale?
