The Ballen Group, Las Vegas short Sale Specialists of Nevada, win top honors for production in listing, marketing, and closing Short Sale Homes in Nevada using their Comprehensive Short Sale System.
Online PR News – 21-October-2010 – – The Ballen Group, a top team of Las Vegas Short Sale Specialists under the brokerage Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas has once again received multiple awards for their real estate production which in turn is helping Nevada Homeowners. On Tuesday, October 19th, The Ballen Group was recognized for top achievements in Listings, Production, and marketing. Receiving such awards is significant to The Ballen Group as they had just made a big move from a Coldwell Banker franchise to the Keller Williams Family. "The move was disruptive and chaotic, but necessary", says Lori Ballen, Team Leader for The Ballen Group.
The Ballen Group knows that their short sale closing ratio and production is so high due to their comprehensive Las Vegas Short sale system for sellers. Many Las Vegas mortgages now exceed the fair market value of the home. Negative equity has become an increasing problem for the nation, but is excessive in Las Vegas. With the prices of Las Vegas homes decreasing, and the interest rates on previous subprime loans increasing, many Las Vegas home sellers have no choice but to negotiate with the bank to take less (also known as a “short”) on the sale of the property. The seller proves a hardship to the bank which could include divorce, loss of income, health issues and other various situations proving the monthly mortgage payments are impossible for the homeowner to pay. The home owner hires a Real Estate agent, such as The Ballen Group, Short Sale Agents to sell their home and negotiate the sale with the bank.
The Ballen Group and their expert team of agents working Short Sales in Nevada lists the short sale property the same as they would with any other property. It is marketed on the internet, television, mail outs, magazines and more. The real estate commissions are negotiated with the bank rather than the seller. Ballen then receives offers and presents them to the seller. Once an offer is chosen, it is submitted to the bank for approval. The entire process takes 60-120 days on average and could save the homeowner from Las Vegas foreclosure (Terms should be discussed with the seller’s attorney, accountants, credit advisors and any other professionals outside of the general real estate field).
The Ballen Group encourages its licensed agents and Realtors to undergo Short Sale Training and classes and stay up to date on bank requirements and policies. In addition to the licensed agents, The Ballen Group provides full time transaction coordinators to help in the short sale process. The Ballen Group, managed by Richard and Lori Ballen (Wekerle) is very successful in marketing & selling Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson Short Sales and helping home sellers valley wide. They hold a high standard for the agents, and practice professionalism, honesty, and ethical practices at all times.
