This is a question that really needs to be researched. Short sales are specifically designed to be handled by experienced short sale specialists who have many short sales completed under their belt and the proof to back it up. There may be Realtors who claim they can take on a short sale, but it’s very important to check out their proof to those claims. It would be devastating to begin a short sale only to see it was rejected due to an incompetent Realtor© who claimed to be able to bring you to a successful completion of your short sale. When searching for a short sale specialist, make sure you have a list of questions you would like them to answer and make sure you can feel completely comfortable with them. There are also many who claim to be distressed property experts after taking a weekend training class and earning a certification. While proper training is one factor to consider, experience is everything.
