Short Sale Agent Finder Matches Homeowners with Short Sale Agents

""Short Sale Agent Finder"":http://www.shortsaleagentfinder.com/ offers a free service so distressed homeowners can locate qualified short sale agents in their area.


Since not all agents are ready to list short sales, Short Sale Agent Finder was created so homeowners can connect with experienced agents.


""When it comes to a short sale, if the agent doesn't know what he's doing or how to negotiate the deal, it can result in an unnecessary foreclosure for the seller, who was doing the responsible thing by pursuing a short sale before being foreclosed on,"" said David Tal, co-founder of the company. ""That's what inspired us to create Short Sale Agent Finder, so people could be matched up with the most qualified agents with short sale experience.""

Through Short Sale Agent Finder, homeowners can search an agent network of short sale specialists and compare agents.

The San Diego-based company has a nationwide network of over 15,000 partner agents. The company refers seller leads to their agents for a standard 25 percent referral fee agreement with the partner brokerage.

Rather than simply offer leads, Tal explained the company calls each seller, screens them, and qualifies them before introducing agents to leads.

""Our model is set up so that we make money when our partner agents close deals, so the better we can line up the lead for them, the better for both of us,"" Tal said.

According to a company release, over 50 percent of their leads turn into listings.
