Short Sales - Diva Style
The past couple of years have been very trying for families and individuals as they face declining home values, job losses and changes in their financial situations. Team Diva has seen an increase in the number of folks coming to us whose agents have left the real estate business, who have relocated to another city for their jobs and/or they are forced to sell their home at a loss. These transactions are called short sales - when someone owes more on their mortgage than they can sell their home for in today's market.
The Divas and Matt Team Up for the Good of our Diva Dwellers
TeamDiva decided early on that everyone deserves the same high quality of service as our Diva Dwellers, regardless of their financial situation or their home's short sale status. Team Diva is very proud to partner with Matt Miner, a certified Short Sale Expert in our family of Coldwell Banker Bain real estate brokers.
Why Does Team Diva Work With Matt vs. "Professional Negotiator"?
Team Diva prides themselves on the comprehensive approach we take when working with our clients. We were immediately impressed by the environment Matt creates when assisting our clients through a difficult time in their lives. We expect everyone we work with to be smart and provide the same level of service we would provide to our own clients. A professional negotiator is not going to put their heart and soul into ensuring a positive outcome for our clients. Matt does that and more!
Managing a short sale can be very difficult and time consuming process. The national average for closing short sale homes is around 25%, with a bulk of the short sales ending in foreclosure. Matt closes 80% of his short sale listings. A good portion of his success comes from his disciplined process of managing information provided to the key decision makers within each of the financial institutions with a stake in the property. Matt is tenacious, very knowledgeable of the banking system and creates a good report with many of the bank's decision makers. The results have saved many from foreclosure and ruining their credit.
