Communication is key when it comes toÂ Wellington short sales, regardless if you are aÂ Wellington short sale listing agent orÂ Wellington short sale buyerâ€™s agent.
As aÂ Wellington FL REALTOR I have had conversations with both Short Sale Sellers and Buyers who have worked with other Wellington Short Sale agents and their biggest complaint was lack of communication from their agent.
When a Wellington FL homeowner decides to short sale their home it can be one of the most stressful times in their life with all of the unknowns,Â so it is extremely importantÂ that theirÂ short sale listing agent communicates with them on a regular basis even if itâ€™s a quick e-mail or text statingÂ â€œno change this week.â€ AtÂ leastÂ the short sale seller knows their listing agentÂ hasnâ€™t forgotten about them.
The same holds true forÂ home buyers who are trying to purchase aÂ short sale in Wellington Florida. Â First and foremost it is important thatÂ short sale home buyers are educated on theÂ short sale process and are prepared to stick around until the sellersÂ receive a short sale approval or denial letter, which could take weeks or several months.
Most home buyers could probably goÂ the firstÂ week or two with no update or communication from their real estate agent, but as soon as that 30, 60, 90, 120 days pass I can almost guarantee they will start to get impatient. Â So it is important to keep these buyers updated even if itâ€™s an e-mail or text statingÂ â€œno change this week.â€ I personally update my short sale clients every single week.
Communication is key for ALL real estate transactions, but especially during aÂ Wellington short sale transaction.
