5 Signs that You Need to Have a New Lakeland FL Short Sale Agent

5 Signs that You Need to Have a New Lakeland FL Short Sale Agent

 

Working with a good Lakeland FL short sale agent is key to having a successful short sale. When you work with the wrong agent, things are bound to go wrong along the way and it could only mean bad for you. So be careful with classifying whether or not an agent actually is a short sale expert or not. Here are a few signs to help you spot an agent who won’t be able to help you much with short sales:

Do you know when to change your Lakeland FL short sale agent? Here's how!

1. If your agent has never done short sales in the past

Do not be the experiment. If you are going to enter the complex world of short sales, it is best to have someone who has actually walked that path in the past to hold your hand along the way. If your current agent has never done this in the past, both of you would most likely have a difficult time.

 

2. If your agent tells you he won’t personally handle the short sale or the negotiations

Short sales in Lakeland, just like in any other short sales, would require tons of negotiations and communications with lenders, seller, and seller’s agent. It’s a bad sign if your real estate agent tells you that you need to handle the negotiations.

 

3. If your agent doesn’t ask you about your financial situation

Your financial status is really important to get your short sale approved by the bank. Your agent, in your cooperation, would have to collect necessary documents to detail your financial situation. If your agent never asked you about your loans and such, then you have to think twice. You can always check out http://LakelandFL-ShortSaleAgent.com/ to find not just ideal homes abut also experienced short sale agents.

 

4. If your agent doesn’t let you in the details and processes in short sales

Buying or selling a Lakeland FL homes for sale is different when buying or selling a short sale home. Your agent should never assume that you already know the ins and outs of the whole process. Apart from you being proactive in asking question, the success of your communication would depend on how well your agent explains all short sale related processes to you.

 

5. If your agent suggests an impossible pricing plan for the home

Pricing is a very important part of a short sale. There should be enough basis on pricing. A comparison on sales of similar homes for the past few months, as well as the value of your home must be taken into account when pricing. If your agent suggests an incredibly high price, be alert and immediately ask for his basis. 

 

Be very cautious in choosing your Lakeland FL short sale agents. They will play a huge part in the whole process. You need someone with superior knowledge and vast experience on short sales to be sure that you will be successful. Do not hesitate to change to look for a new one if necessary.
