The Current Environment
Homeowners are in the biggest financial crisis of their lives and, for 85% of them, the first call they make for help will be to a real estate agent:
- Less than 10% of agents have the training needed to successfully negotiate a short sale.
- Over the last three years, over 70% of all residential foreclosures were never on the market.
- Over 85% of short sale files agents submit to the banks are rejected the first time around.
- Over 80% of short sales attempted by real estate agents fail.
- Our success rate for closing short sales is over 90%.
Metro Mortgage Consulting is a third-party Loss Negotiator. We work as a facilitator between the Bank, the seller, the seller’s agent and the buyer’s agent to help negotiate Short Sales. We are only paid if we successfully help close the Short Sale, and are paid out of the proceeds of the transaction (typically not you as the seller).
