It’s very easy for any real estate agent to say that he/she has all the Wellington FL short sale services a client would need, but only time can tell if the agent can suit his/her actions to words. Unfortunately, most homeowners pursuing short sales can’t afford to waste that much time for assessing an agent’s
expertise in short sales. If you need to short sell your home urgently then you definitely need the most competent agent to back you up.
How much experience does the agent have?
When looking for an agent who can offer Wellington Florida short sale services, always make sure that you choose someone who actually had experience offering those very services he’s/she’s talking about. Just because they offer it on paper doesn’t mean they’ve actually gone and done them in real life.
And of course, don’t just take their word for it. Ask for proof – documents that show short sale approvals and referrals from their previous clients.
How long have they been handling real estate transactions in Wellington FL?
Agents can offer the best Wellington FL short sale services if they understand and appreciate the area the way locals do. They don’t have to live in Wellington FL to be good at their jobs, but they do need to have spent at least a few years buying and selling homes in the area to know which neighborhoods are most suitable for which type of clients.
You have to remember that most homebuyers purchase homes only in areas or neighborhoods that they like. Before an agent can start short selling your home to a buyer, they need to promote its location first.
Do they specialize in short sales?
Just because you scored an A in a math test does not make you a genius or give you a beautiful mind like John Nash’s. Likewise, just because an agent successfully short sold a home or two in Wellington Florida doesn’t mean he’s/she’s an expert in it as well.
Specialization takes years to acquire. It’s a combination of skills, experience, and a special kind of understanding of a particular area – which in this case would be Wellington FL. The process for short sales may be the same all over the country, but local market trends definitely affect the outcome as well
as other factors like the mentality of creditors in your area, what type of home you may have, and so forth.
If the agent you’re working with can truly prove he/she specializes in Wellington FL short sale services, then you have yourself a winner and you’ll surely be able to sell off your home in no time.
