I often am contacted by home owners / home sellers from all over Ohio asking for advice and help in stopping foreclosure or how to do a short sale in Ohio.  Sometimes other real estate agents contact me for help or to refer a home owner / seller to me for assistance.  We understand how this happens due to our reputation and experience, as well as, our fantastic web presence.  What we have struggled with is helping home owners avoid foreclosure or short sale their Ohio homes.  It is not always easy to find another real estate agent that has the training or experience necessary to complete a short sale in Ohio.  Want to know more about short sales or short payoffs

Can any real estate agent do a Short Sale in Ohio?

The easy answer is yes…  Now is it ethical for any real estate agent to do a short sale in Ohio… that is a different question.  You see Realtors hold themselves to a Code of Ethics and that code states in Article 11:

  • Realtors®
    shall not undertake to provide specialized professional services
    concerning a type of property or service that is outside their field
    of competence
    unless they engage the assistance of one who is
    competent on such types of property or service, or unless the facts
    are fully disclosed to the client. Any persons engaged to provide
    such assistance shall be so identified to the client and their
    contribution to the assignment should be set forth. (Amended
    1/95) see Code of Ethics
