Liniger: ‘Short Sales are Getting Easier’ in the Antelope Valley

RE/MAX Chairman and Co-Founder Dave Liniger shares his insights on how innovative changes are improving the success of short sales in a column for the September edition of DS News magazine, a premier trade publication for the default-servicing industry. 

The essay, headlined “A Short-Sale Shopping List,” looks at the ways servicers, homeowners and professionally trained real estate agents have worked together to produce successful results, making short sales a more efficient process.

Here’s an excerpt:

 

The key to [closing short sales] is having three components in place: first, a servicer with a true interest in short sales and an empowered staff that can handle the work flow; second, prescreened homeowners who can’t be helped with a loan modification and carry mortgages, often portfolio loans, with no or few encumbrances; and third, a network of real estate agents with high levels of training, skill, and experience. 

When these elements come together, aided by a spirit of cooperation and a shared commitment to the goal—a closing—it changes the game. We’re seeing it firsthand at RE/MAX. We’re engaged with several major national servicers to educate struggling borrowers about foreclosure alternatives and, if conditions are right, guide them to a successful short sale closing. 

The fact is, these programs did not exist a year ago. Servicers were reluctant or still ramping up, delays were measured in months, and consumers and agents alike were experiencing a terrible lack of results. Within the new framework, however, things are better—not perfect by any stretch, but much better.

ReMax Ranks Highest in Customer Satisfation

REMAX VOTED #1 IN HOME BUYING AND HOME SELLING FOR 2011

Results are based on measures of customer satisfaction and quality by consumers that are proprietary to J.D. Power and Associates. Awards and performance ranking are based on numerical scores, and not necessarily on statistical significance. Our experience indicates that even when small differences occur in the scores of those being measured, these small perceived differences help drive competition in the marketplace, thereby improving product and service quality and driving increases in overall customer satisfaction. What sets ReMax agents apart from any other Real Estate company? We have the most college graduates and higher credential agents who specialize in reaching their customer’s goals and allows ReMax AllPro to continue receiving these prestigious awards!

Testimonials

My husband and I were very happy with the service we received from Peter Terracciano, Broker-Owner, and Re/Max, All-Pro in selling our house in Lancaster. We listed our house on March 23rd and had a full-price offer on April 4th. Probably the best thing about our experience, besides actually selling our home, was the full-service that was provided. Peter has an assistant, Frank Barrow, who met the appraiser, supervised the installation of smoke detectors, found someone to check the roof, and kept in touch with us while we were out of town. Having an escrow company adjacent to the Re/Max office also made the closing activities fairly pain free. We would recommend any seller in the Antelope Valley to consider listing with the All-Pro office.

Just wanted to step up and express my gratitude for all Peter has done over the years.  Peter Terracciano has helped me buy and sell houses for the last 20 years. Peter has always been hands on, knowledgeable, confident, helpful, and trust worthy kind of guy.  In fact, he has been so personable over the years with all my real estate transactions that I now consider him a good friend. I realized I have never verbalized to Peter how wonderful it has been to put my real estate concerns in his hands. So, here’s to you Peter and thank you very much for all your kindness.
