Short Sales - The Banks need to get with the times

Short Sales

I was just reading another Rainer blog and thought of how antiquated some banks are in the loss mitigation departments.  Get this you have to fax (fax- is the machine that can't make copies and has a phone line attached to it) the short sale packet and wait two weeks for a letter in the mail that they received it. 

No wonder we expect the delay to cause the banks to loss additional money.

 

With technology the way it is you should be able to scan and email the packet and have a confirmation that it was received and assigned almost instantly.  I can understand the call back might be awhile but "come on".

 For information on short sales Brian Sharkey can be reached at All Florida Realty Services Inc. at 772-335-1995 x 192.
