(To recap, here were the reasons we put in our previous blog post. Reason #1: The sales price is lower than the lender wants. The lender thinks the home is worth more than it is selling for and won’t approve the short sale unless the price is for the value they have.
Reason #2: The tenant doesn’t allow the home to be showed. Many tenants do not want the home to be shown to buyers because they will have to move before it sells.)
Reason #3: Your realtor never followed up with the lender. Short sale negotiators are not in a rush. They don’t get paid by the file.
They also make the rules. They will issue ultimatums. “Get me this document by Tuesday. If you don’t, then I will cancel the short sale process.”
Restarting the short sale process will set you back 30-60 days. If your agent doesn’t follow up on the process regularly and quickly respond to requests, then your short sale may be canceled.
Reason #4: Your realtor didn’t keep their paperwork organized. Lenders want correct paperwork that is properly filled out. They want everything organized.
Most short sale departments are a bureaucracy. They have checklists to fill out, forms to check, and other things to check.
If your agent is not organized, then they won’t be able to give them the correct paperwork. They might lose paperwork and have to hunt down replacements.
This takes time and slows down the process. So, be sure you hire an organized, competent agent to help you with your short sale.

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
