Many homeowners and real estate professionals are cautious when having someone handle their short sale transaction. How do they know the company they will hire will work honestly and efficiently for them? The best way to protect yourself from fraud is never use any company that asks for money up front or asks you to sign your deed over to someone else. These are the biggest red flags for dealing with an unscrupulous company. Only deal with companies that are willing to do the work and get your results before they get paid. At Short Sales For America, we never accept any money from anyone ever. We only get paid at closing from the lender. So you know we are working hard on your files because we wont be paid if it doesn’t close.
