Sargent’s Title Company is pleased to provide outstanding assistance in obtaining Short Sale Approvals. A Short Sale is when your lender agrees to settle for less than what is owed. This is an alternative to a foreclosure. In the event that a foreclosure process happens, it is still possible that a short sale can be agreed upon during the redemption period. At Sargent’s Title we will assist you in obtaining a short sale approval from the lender. However, we will need several items and all parties to cooperate to obtain this goal. Attached are the items that will be required from all parties to make this transaction possible. We will set up an initial appointment with you and your customer to collect the required documents needed to obtain the short sale approval. From this point we will contact the lender and negotiate the short sale. If at any point we need further information we will contact you and your customer. We would like to thank you for trusting your business to us and look forward to assisting you and your customer in obtaining a short sale approval. In exchange for this service we do charge a specialist fee of $750.00 from the transaction proceeds. This fee gets paid out of the transaction proceeds; your customer will not directly pay for this fee. In the event that lender does not approve the short sale, no fees will be due. Sincerely, Short Sale Specialists of Sargent’s Title Company, LLC
