According to Superior School of Real Estate, the “Certified Short Sale ‘Seller’ and ‘Buyer’ designations are the First and ONLY North Carolina state specific Short Sale designations.
The Certified Short Sale Seller (CSSS) and Certified Short Sale Buyer (CSSB) designees are real estate related professionals dedicated to helping North Carolina home sellers and buyers who find themselves in a short sale. A short sale is when the seller owes more than their property is worth. They understand the short sale process, what’s normal and what isn’t, the transactional entities involved, and who the true Short Sale decision makers are.
A Certified Short Sale Seller (CSSS) designee understand the qualifications that the short sale seller will be required to meet. Just like a buyer needs to have a job, good credit, and money for a down payment to get a loan, the short sale seller must qualify for the short sale and understand the options that may be available, how they work, and what effect they may have on the consumer credit. They know what mortgage fraud looks like in a “Buyer’s Market” so they don’t inadvertently get caught up in it. They understand the fundamental concepts of the 2 negotiations in a short sale, what may happen with the loss, deficiency judgments, 1099, and credit reporting. They understand how to determine the complexity and the likelihood that this will be a successful short sale transaction and the questions to ask to determine if the seller is ready, willing, and able to do a short sale.”
