What’s an Atlanta Short Sale?

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

 Everyone is talking about short sales these days.  As a Seller, are you qualified for a short sale on your property? Or, are you a Buyer, wanting to buy a home this way? Depending on your perspective, Seller or Buyer, it is not something for someone who is impatient or for someone who is unrepresented.

What are the parameters and prerequisites for a short sale? If you want/need to short-sell your home, what paperwork does a lender need? Do you know how much time is involved in a short sale? Do you know what a short sale’s consequences are and what you can expect in the long-term if you sell your property this way? What if you buy a short sale; is it different from a traditional sale?

If you would like a confidential discussion regarding the short sale of your Atlanta property, or if you would like to purchase an Atlanta home that is being sold through a short sale, call or email me.  I am a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) and I can help.

Foreclosure Help

Monday, August 17th, 2009

If you are living in the Atlanta area and think you may lose your home to foreclosure, call me. I am a Certfied Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) and may be able to help.

It is estimated that up to 90% of Atlanta’s foreclosed homes were never listed for sale! These homeowners, living in an about-to-be-foreclosed home, have not explored something called a “short sale”. If they qualified for a short sale with their bank, they would not have suffered through the foreclosure process and would not have quietly let their homes be auctioned “on the steps” (of the courthouse).

Stop Atlanta foreclosure!

A short sale may be possible, in lieu of a foreclosure. Although a short sale will harm your credit for 2-3 years, it will not have the devastating, long-term effect (9-12 years) that a foreclosure will have on your credit. And a foreclosure will not stop at your credit report; many employers will not hire people with a foreclosure on their record.
