I read an interesting book recently. The author talked about persistence and how it helps you be successful. He told a story about phoning a call center. The first person he talked to told him that he couldn't buy something in bulk for a certain price. Rather than argue with her, he instead hung up and called back in. The next person he talked to agreed to sell him the product in bulk for the price he wanted. He got what he wanted a lot faster and easier than if he had spent time arguing with the first person.

He gave another example of trying to change his account info with a phone company. The first person tells him he needs to print and sign a form. Then he must have it notarized and mailed to the company. The company will then change the account information. Does he willingly go along with her? No. Instead, he hung up the phone, called in again, and talked to another rep. In just a few minutes that rep had changed the information in the computer system. Goal accomplished.

So what does this have to do with short sales? We will use this same strategy when we negotiate your short sale. If the first person won't give us what we want, then we will ask someone else. Now, this can't be use in all stages of the short sale. But it can be used to increase our odds of success. Remember, our goal is to help you wipe out the upside down debt, get rid of any tax liability, and keep your credit intact.
