Huntington Beach CA – We see a lot of agent’s going about escalating a file the wrong way. It reminds me of the appeals process game in death row.
Everyone has to go thru the appeals process. It drags on for years and years. After a while it simply becomes a game. I don’t want to see short sale escalation turn into a “game.”
Treat the Short Sale Escalation Process like a sales process. Don’t treat it like just another technical process that you do for no reason.
Don’t just escalate the file “because you felt like it.” The reason you escalate a file is because the lender is making a bad decision turning down the offer.
You feel, based on your superior knowledge of the property and the local housing market, that they will lose more money thru foreclosure.
And you are moving the file up the chain to make sure they don’t lose even more money. When you escalate a file, make sure you tell everyone that they are going to lose money if they don’t accept the offer.
Tell them, “Based on my projections, you will net 680k with this offer and 635k after foreclosure.” Give them documentation to back that up.
Here are a few examples of documentation we send to them.
1. Comparable Sales.
2. Other similar homes for sale that are competing for the same buyers.
3. Active, competing bank owned comps.
4. Other bank owned sales that were rejected as short sales and the lenders lost money as a result.
5. MLS History.
6. Bank owned comps that may not have been allowed in the Property Valuation or appraisal.
This documentation is designed to help your case. It will help convince them that you are escalating a file for a legitimate reason. It’s not just a game to you. Thinking about a short sale?

Our services have not been reviewed, endorsed, or approved by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
If you stop paying your mortgage, then you could lose your home and damage your credit. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
