"What are the most common mistakes that can prevent a short sale from happening?"

Short sales are very viable alternatives to foreclosure and can save you and your family a lot of heartache. However, you need to ensure they are done absolutely correctly or else you risk the deal falling through. One of the most common short sale mistakes is that the proposal is incomplete. Most agents do not understand the short sale process and what your lender will be looking for.

As a Certified Distressed Property Expert, Zac understands the short sale process in detail and will work with you to present a complete and cohesive proposal to your lender (in fact, he is working on a few short sale proposals today).

Not sure what constitutes a "financial hardship" that you would submit in your proposal? Click here for our blog on qualifying for a financial hardship for the short sale of your Atlanta or Decatur home.

For a free report with the seven most dangerous short sale pitfalls, please visit the zac team online at www.SavingFamiliesFromForeclosure.com and indicate which report you would like. You can also request more information and a confidential consultation from our Certified Distressed Property Experts at www.SavingFamiliesFromForeclosure.com or call Zac directly at 404.564.7272.

We also invite any of our neighbors who are worried about foreclosure to join us on the first and third Saturday of every month for our “Foreclosure Prevention Initiative: A Community Workshop.” This is a joint effort by the zac team and other local organizations to help our Atlanta and Decatur homeowners avoid foreclosure. We will provide a presentation and a workbook with valuable materials. The workshop begins at 10 a.m. in our office near Virginia Highland. Please RSVP to Jenny by emailing jenny@zac.biz or calling 404.564.7250!

"What consitutes a financial hardship and how do I qualify for a short sale of my Atlanta home?"

Many Atlanta, Decatur, and Buckhead residents are asking themselves this question and our phones have been ringing with these and other foreclosure prevention inquiries.
The simple definition for financial hardship is as follows:

A material change in between the day the mortgage was signed and today that has affected your ability to pay.

Financial hardship leading to a short sale can include issues such as:

  • Mortgage payment adjustment
  • Job loss
  • Too much debt
  • Business failure
  • Divorce or death of a co-borrower

First and foremost, a financial hardship is a verifiable issue that has or will cause you to miss payments or have financial difficulties.

For a free report with the other two must-have qualifications for a short sale, please visit the zac team online at www.SavingFamiliesFromForeclosure.com. You can also request more information and a confidential consultation from our Certified Distressed Property Experts at www.SavingFamiliesFromForeclosure.com or call Zac directly at 404.564.7272.

Top Real Estate Questions Answered! #17: “What if our friend or neighbor wants to buy our home?"

by the zac team @ RE/MAX Greater Atlanta

"What if our friend or neighbor wants to buy our home? We want to have an exclusion in the listing contract just in case."

That's why we have our no-hassle listing agreement! For 4 percent, Zac, or the Listing Partners, find the buyer and write the contract. There is no other Broker involved. The commission drops to 3 percent if you find the buyer and there is no other Broker involved. We negotiate on your behalf, write the contract, and walk it through closing for you. At 1.5 percent, you find the buyer and there is no other Broker involved. You negotiate the price, we write the contract, and walk it through closing for you. And for free, you find the buyer and there is no other Broker involved. You don’t want our assistance. You pay nothing.

#11: “If we have to sell that low, then why wouldn't we just sell it ourselves and pay 3% to the agent that sells it?”
#12: "Can't we come down in price later?"
#13: "What if we aren't quite ready yet? We need to finish a couple of projects around the house before we put it on the market."

#14: “Will you cut your commission? The other agents will.”
#15: "Why don't you advertise in print?"
#16: “You don’t hold open houses... Why?”

Top Real Estate Questions Answered! #16: “You don’t hold open houses... Why?”

by the zac team @ RE/MAX Greater Atlanta

“You don’t hold open houses... Why?”

This goes back to passive versus active marketing. Wouldn't you rather have an agent on the phone every day working for you?

Also, most visitors are neighbors. In the current market, serious buyers call for an appointment. Buyers no longer walk in and buy homes. Another issue is, unfortunately, there has been some theft, especially of prescription drugs. In a larger home, it is very difficult to keep an eye on everyone.
