Hiring a Short Sale Agent as a Buyer's Agent

By December 5, 2012

Follow me on:

An advantage to being a short sale agent on the listing side is the agent sees what happens from a different point of view.

There are not a whole slew of agents in the business who have done a short sale, much less represented a buyer for a short sale. Writing offers to buy a short sale is different than writing offers to buy a home that is not a short sale. For example, if the agent isn't careful, it is possible that a short sale seller could accept an offer and then turn around and sell the home to a different buyer. An agent who mostly represents sellers for a short sale would know that, but a buyer's agent might not.
