Yes, we use Equator for our short sales. We like it, make the process easier and more transparent.

the paperwork is likely generated by the actual lender and they are just using equator at the platform.  The amount of paperwork with different lenders have varied for me even though they all used equator.  But there is always LOTS of paper work with a short sale.

Equator is simply a platform used by the banks to manage a short sale or REO sale. Banks use Equator to find agents to list with.  The problem with Equator is it is very costly now to get your name associated with a zip code.

I don't -- I refer out this business to  a colleague who specializes in it. That way I have time to deal with the business I know well and make some money and he gets to do what he knows well and make some money. A win-win all around.

Unfortunately....if you do short sales...there is no option...it can be a frustration with canned responses that do not fit a particular situation.

The first time can be overwhelming, also depends who you work with your SS.

Good luck!

 

p.s. That's why I highly suggest AR to add an additional field where you can explain the question in more details.

Haven't used them since last short sale. You must stay on top of every step and meet every deadline.

I haven't done a short sale with equator in a long time. Right now I have a bank owned property and all the tasks go through equator.
