Industry-First Short Sale Buyer Representative Course a Game-Changer for Real Estate Industry

Share Article

Specialized education for Buyer Agents aims to increase Short Sale closing ratios, protect real estate values and get the real estate market and economy back on track.

America’s Home Rescue, an industry leader in advanced Short Sale training, announced the official release of the first industry designation specifically designed for the Short Sale Buyer’s Agent. The Certified Short Sale Buyer Representative (CSSBR) designation course is aimed at keeping the real estate industry accountable for getting more Short Sales closed by teaching Agents how to more effectively represent the Short Sale Buyer. Given the national foreclosure situation coupled with record volume of inventory on the market in most regions of the country, more Agents are working with Short Sale Buyers than ever before. Experts predict that 50% of the real estate industry will be Short Sales by year end. As a Buyer's Agent in today's environment, it is imperative that Agents have the knowledge, resources and tools to properly educate and effectively represent their Buyers in purchasing a Short Sale.

“Buyer’s Agents should no longer feel vulnerable in a Short Sale. With so many inconsistencies in how real estate Agents have been educated on Short Sales, we are empowering the Buyer’s Agent to better qualify the Listing Agent, before writing up an offer, to determine the likelihood that the Short Sale is being facilitated correctly, based on the type of loan the Seller has and the type of financing the Buyer is obtaining,” says Michael Spickes, CEO for America’s Home Rescue. In a Short Sale, if not facilitated properly, there can be unnecessary hiccups and time delays.

Therefore, it is critical that the Buyer be represented by an Agent who is well-trained in facilitating these transactions successfully. A Buyer’s Agent who has earned the CSSBR designation has gone the extra mile with additional training in serving the Buyer throughout the Short Sale buying process. Working with a CSSBR can drastically increase the likelihood of a successful Short Sale closing and will give Buyers the assurance that they will receive the highest level of Buyer-representation expertise when purchasing a Short Sale.

Since 2003, America's Home Rescue has been a leader in providing advanced Short Sale education to over 40,000 real estate professionals through the most advanced a la carte Short Sale training program available in the industry. They continue to produce an array of solutions to educate and equip real estate professionals with the knowledge, tools and support needed to successfully navigate and close their Short Sale transactions. The programs include both live and online courses, the Short Sale Discussion Forum, Short Sale Calculator Software, Marketing Tools, access to over 80 Short Sale FHA, VA, and Conventional Short Sale Packages and Lender Contact Information, MHA-HAFA lookup tools and three of the leading real estate industry certifications in the country, the CDRS (Certified Default Resolution Specialist), the CDRCS (Certified Default Resolution Closing Specialist) and now the CSSBR (Certified Short Sale Buyers Representative).
