The Short Sale Was Denied, and The Sellers May Have Had Poor Representation

Working to Get a Succcessful Connecticut Short Sale

The email I received from the seller's agent read simply: The short sale was denied, can you offer suggestions as to how to proceed?  As I represented the buyer, I had to break the news to my client and they were disappointed, but also, being asked how to possibly proceed forward was out of the ordinary.

Going back to prior to entering an offer, I had called the other agent to try and determine some background for the home. Knowing that I cannot have compete knowledge of the deal, I still wanted to know who the lender was, were there any secondary liens; who was handling the negotiations and had they prepared the package for the bank.

The sellers personal lawyer was going to handle the short sale but the agent could not tell me if they had any experience doing them. Also, I asked the agent if they had counseled the seller and they indicated that they hadn't.

From the nature of the responses after the rejection, I had to wonder if these sellers ever had a chance.

Short sales are still a reality in Connecticut, as are foreclosures. Many agents will take the short sale listing but if they don't fully understand how to counsel the client and at the very least know how the process worlds, the seller's chances of a successful Connecticut short sale are reduced before they even get started.

Sellers needing to sell short in Connecticut should have some understanding of how to proceed or at least know what questions to ask the agent.

First, has the agent taken any courses or seminars on short sales?

Has that agent had a successful short sale?

Is the person that is going to do the negotiating for the seller had experience and understand how the house should be priced and marketed?

No short sales are ever guaranteed to be completed, but the chances are greatly lessened if the people working for the seller are just going through the motions. The requirements for short sakes are ever changing and having a Connecticut agent that understands the process and knows how to guide the sellers is critical to the completion.

We do Connecticut short sales. We understand the process and know how to explain it to the sellers of a distressed property. While no one can guarantee the results, it is important to at least have a fighting start.
