In an unprecedented program, one of the nation’s largest mortgage investors is reaching around its servicers and engaging with Realtors directly in an effort to get more short sales closed.

Traditionally, investors are neither seen nor heard in the short sale transaction. Through Fannie Mae’s new Short Sale Assistance Desk, a direct connection between the investor and the Real Estate Agent is created, short-cutting the time involved in getting transaction approved.

This exciting broadcast includes:

  •     How agents can access the short sale assistance desk through their local MLS.
  •     How to get the short sale assistance desk for your MLS if you don’t have it yet.
  •     Understanding the 4 triggers that allow you to contact the Short Sale Assistance Desk for resolution.
  •     The amazing time commitments and deadlines that Fannie has committed its servicers to keeping.
  •     Clarification on the goal of the entire Fannie Mae organization as to exactly how many foreclosures they want to have.

Fannie joins other major organizations like Bank of America and the US Treasury who have appeared with host Alex Charfen on the Charfen Institute National Broadcast Network to make major announcements to the Real Estate Industry. No other organization in the real estate industry equals the Charfen Institute’s number of live broadcasts or the quality of their content.
