Empire Title customers seeing up to $20K+ incentives for sellers, even quicker turnaround times and increased closing ratios on short sale real estate transactions.

Summit Mitigation, LLC (SMS) of Colorado Springs, one of the nation’s fastest growing short sale negotiation companies, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Empire Title’s Short Sale Solutions, LLC (SSS).

“SMS provides short sale negotiation services and technology solutions that help clients grow their business and close more sales,” said Karl Falk, SMS CEO and president. “This partnership with Empire Title is a great example of how our short sale negotiation services support title companies as they seek to expand their business through new market opportunities.”

Empire’s clients are already seeing the benefit of this partnership. In one such case, Empire Title recently closed a transaction on which SMS expert negotiators delivered a $20,000 incentive for homeowners who were initially denied eligibility from their lender. Given the seller’s hardship and knowledge of this lender SMS negotiated the incentive up to $20,000 for the seller. These sellers were able to sell their home via a short sale, walk away from closing with a $20K check and know that the bank waived all deficiencies against them. This success story, along with many others, have resulted in over $100K in planned seller incentives over the summer.

Clients are also seeing well above an 80% closing ratio and quicker response times on files.

“As an innovator in the title industry, we are excited for this partnership that will greatly benefit the real estate community in the months and years to come. The partnership will enhance customer service and has set a goal of increasing closing ratios, and providing interactive training opportunities, and heightening awareness with new technology and mobile applications.” Stated Empire Title president Bill McAfee. “The additional staff at SMS will allow workloads to be managed more efficiently, and the technology will allow faster communication to buyers, sellers and agents. SMS technology solutions - including MyShortSaleScore, a mobile app – provide workload management, schedule tracking and real-time file monitoring.”
