Next Stop… More Short Sale Properties from RealAssist™!

0 Comment

The RealAssist™ program by BMS has been running for over a year, and it has been a roaring success!

Since the program’s debut, we’ve provided Trustees with short sale opportunities which have turned no asset cases into profitable asset cases with funds available for distribution to creditors. Currently, 12 properties have been sold; plus, another 5 are in the final closing stages, and 6 more are being auctioned.

The program is still growing—the volume of eligible, servicer pre-approved properties is increasing dramatically!

What is RealAssist™?

RealAssist™ by BMS is a streamlined short sale program that offers you a no-hassle opportunity to increase the value of estates you administer while allowing debtors to avoid the foreclosure process.

It’s the fastest and simplest way to handle selling off properties that are part of the bankruptcy estate, because we obtain approval and an acceptable minimum bid from servicers in advance, and screen for properties that debtors intend to surrender.

Plus, we guarantee a carve-out for the bankruptcy estate of either 5% of the winning bid or a minimum of $7,500 (whichever is greater). It’s a win-win!

Benefits of RealAssist™

With the streamlined process provided by RealAssist™, all parties involved in the sale benefit, and you get more asset cases in addition to these advantages:

  • Shortened Sales Timeline. With a finite 21-day marketing period followed by up to 3 auctions on Auction.com, the properties you list through RealAssist™ sell fast so you can continue to close cases in a timely manner.
  • Global Sales Platform. The Auction.com website is frequented by nearly 1.7 million buyers each month. Properties listed for sale through the RealAssist™ program get seen by buyers around the world.
