  1. What’s the benefit of negotiating a short sale on behalf of a seller if you don’t have the funds to purchase the property (other than the satisfaction of being able to help someone out of a bad situation, of course)?

    1. You can use private lender funds to purchase the property. Also, on properties that don’t fit our criteria we negotiate the short sale and make $3,000 to $5,000 as a buyers premium. The buyers get a great deal, the homeowner avoids foreclosure, the Realtors get paid commissions and we make money too. Win, Win, Win, Win.

      1. So you negotiate with the lender on behalf of the seller, but how are you able to sneak a buyer’s premium in there?

        1. Nothing sneaky…it is disclosed to everyone, just super creative :) We have the seller sign a short sale rep agreement with us and they agree to not accept any offer from a buyer who doesn’t agree to pay the premium. The agent states this in the MLS listing. Buyers are happy to pay it since they are getting the property at a reduced price. Buyer’s premium is disclosed to bank on HUD-1 (cash transactions) or Closing Disclosure (financed transactions) and bank doesn’t have a problem with buyers premium either.
