Got A Question?

Does It Matter Who The Knoxville Short Sale Agent Is?

As a Knoxville Realtor I can honestly say, the answer is "YES" In my travels around Knoxville neighborhoods showing short sale homes for sale as well as the emails and phone calls I receive from sellers and agents, their is no question that Rick Smenner CDPEyour choice of  agent is important. Let me give you an example.....

West Knoxville Short Sale

Just in the past week alone, I showed an West Knoxville home for sale only to find that the house was listed by a Realtor who under priced the home.  Now, some may say “wow, how nice to get a house for such a low price.”  It doesn’t work that way.  The bank will have the property appraised to make sure the agent that listed it knew what they were doing.  What a shock that will be for the buyer!!  The story doesn’t end there.  After questioning the  agent it was obvious he had never done a short sale.  For a home buyer to wait endlessly for a short sale approval is one thing, but to wait even longer with someone who has no idea what they are doing is quite another.  This  agent should have referred this seller to an agent who experienced at short sales. My home buyer decided to pass on this one and submit an offer on a short sale that had an experienced short sale seller’s agent who listed the house.

Your  Agent Matters

I just scratched the surface with this example just this past week…plenty more I could share.  So, in conclusion YES, it does matter who a distressed home seller chooses to sell their short sale home.  If you are having trouble paying your house payment, give me a call and let’s talk. Our conversations are kept strictly confidential.  Who you hire to handle your short sale does matter. I have the most experienced team in Knoxville.
