How To Short Sale Your Home

Hello everyone and welcome again to the Cook & Associates Real Estate Advisors’s short sale blog with The Real Brokerage in :k1:. We specialize in helping homeowners in the :k1: area find alternatives to foreclosure by the means of a short sale. One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive, which is a very good question, is, “How do I short sale my house, what’s the process and how do I get started?”

We can break this down into three simple steps, the first being contacting a qualified realtor or real estate team that does short sales. At the Cook & Associates Real Estate Advisors, we’ve done close to 400 short sales over the past five years and are still doing a lot of short sales. Right now we have over 60 properties that we are short selling for clients. Contact an agent that has experience with all different types of banks and take their guidance. The second step is to set up a free consultation either in person or over the phone where the short sale agent can lay out for you what will happen during the rest of the short sale process. Step three is to have the short sale agent meet you at your property, take some pictures and get familiar with it so that we can market it to investors or other buyers.

It’s a very simple process and the nice thing about a short sale is that you don’t have to have it in tip-top condition because it is sold as is. If there are repairs that need to be made to the property, that will be reflected in the bank approved price. That’s our job to make sure we get the price approved for you based upon the condition of your property so that you don’t have to go out of your way and spend your money to get it into the best condition.

There are many other things and intricacies that go with a short sale, so give us a call today. We’d love to help you in doing a short sale on your property today. You can reach us by telephone at either our Arizona or Ohio office, email us at info@cookandassociatesaz.com or visit our short sale calculator at www.MyHomeValueCalculator.com to see what your home is worth and how long before it breaks even again.

Is Your Mortgage With M And T Bank?

Hello, this is Kelly Cook with the Cook & Associates Real Estate Advisors, your :k1: short sale specialist. We can be found online at www.AZKCRealEstateGroup.com. We specialize in helping homeowners throughout the entire :k1: area find alternatives to foreclosure through the means of a short sale. We are part of The Real Brokerage here in :k1:.

Today the topic we are specifically addressing is short sales with M and T Bank; I’m sure you arrived here at this video because you have a loan with M and T Bank. Maybe you’ve never heard of them; they are a smaller bank located in Virginia and they are also owned by the same parent company as My Community Bank and New York Community Bank. If you have a loan with one of those two banks, they are all kind of tied in together.

M and T is also a servicer that is buying up other bad debt. For example, they may be contacting one of the larger banks such as Citi or Wells Fargo and buying some of their bad portfolios from them and assuming it. Because they are doing this, it makes doing a short sale a little bit harder to do. They are notoriously difficult to work with, especially if you have an agent that has never done a short sale with M and T Bank, doesn’t have any contacts and doesn’t know how to work in their system. We have done six short sales with them and would love to continue to work with them. We have two that we are currently working on with them and it’s been going well so far.

We’d love to work with you on your M and T Bank mortgage, so please contact us if you have any other questions about them and their short sale process. You can reach us via the Contact button on our website, email us at info@cookandassociatesaz.com or give us a call at 480.442.9868. I also want to encourage you to check out our Short Sale Calculator, which can also be found on our website. It will tell you just how underwater you are on your home and if a short sale is the best financial decision for you.
