Real estate professionals that want to offer short-sale options to their clients are a special group that have agreed to undertake this complex and often frustrating task. It is not as easy as it looks. There is much more to completing a short-sale than just filling out some additional forms and making a few calls.
Certified Short-Sale Professionals will learn from a veteran, Jacob Swodeck, with over 10 years of experience in short-selling properties. In addition, you will be instructed by someone with current and relevant experience as he is a practicing professional. There is a big difference in short-sales today than what occurred in the 80s or 90s. As a CSP you will learn how to handle 80/20 loans, No-Equity Loans and Negative Amortized Loans all much different than the FHA short-sales that were handled by many agents in the past.
A Certified Short-Sale Professional (CSP) will be able to guide their client through the complex process of marketing the home, finding a willing buyer, working with the lender(s) and the other parties involved. A CSP will also learn how to determine if a property will even qualify for a short-sale and if the process will be worth the agent’s time and effort.
