(Please ask your REALTOR® if he or she has proper, up-to-date training to handle short sales. If not done properly, short sales can cause a lot of headaches and stress for sellers). Most agents should hold the (CDPE) Certified Distressed Property Expert designation in order to handle short sales.
How long does a short sale take?
Although the short sale process is complicated and may take some time and effort, a certified CDPE agent can usually help handle short sale transactions and easily close quickly smoothly and minimize the work for the seller. In order to complete a short sale you must act quickly, be diligent and understand that the bank must approve the sale.
