Somebody with short sale experience. These homes are much different than traditional sales, and can come with all kinds of additional steps and delays if you don’t hire a qualified agent. Find a short sale real estate agent who is certified CDPE to help navigate these murky waters. These agents have special training in the shorted sale process and the issues that help sellers avoid a foreclosure. Having an agent who is not versed in the process will lead lags in the sales process while the inexperienced Realtor spends time learning which forms to fill out or fills out forms improperly.
In in the marketplace 30 years, we have seen 2 HUGE shifts in the global marketplace. First, the shift to a global economy in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Remember when we as a country used to shudder about the fact that the japanese were buying up all of our treasury paper? Some real financially intelligent soul would remind us that the japanese were dictating our prevailing interest rates, along with supposedly buying up our country and actually controlling our monetary policy! WOW!! That was some real deep thinking, probably right from the hallowed grounds of our own centers of higher learning! After all, weren’t those so called book smart people the only ones who actually knew what was going on?
