Short Sales and Foreclosures

In today’s tough economy, more and more homeowners are finding it difficult to make their monthly mortgage payments.  If you fall into this category, there are some things you should consider before going into foreclosure. One of the options you may have is called “short sale.”

Cynthia Hash (Principal Broker & Owner) earned her Certified Short Sale Specialist (CSSS) designation during the recession that started almost 15 years ago.  She was also certified in Real Estate Owned (REO)/bank-owned properties around the same time; and is experienced in helping clients buy and sell short sale and REO properties.

Julie Weaver (REALTOR®) is our SFR designee.  The Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR®) certification is for REALTORS® who want to hone the skills that will allow them to help buyers and sellers of distressed properties.  Julie has gained a framework for understanding how to:

  • Direct distressed sellers to finance, tax, and legal professionals
  • Qualify sellers for short sales
  • Develop a short-sale package
  • Negotiate with lenders
  • Protect buyers

With the negotiations and complexity that is involved with short sales, you should be prepared for the process to take several months; but, if you choose to work with us, we will stay on top of things throughout the process for you!  We are here to help expedite your transaction and protect your interests.  There are many important details involved that could delay your transaction, so you want someone on your side who can spot the details and sort out any problems on a timely basis.

If you are a Seller, an experienced short-sale REALTOR® can help you negotiate with the lender, submit the proper paperwork, prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to show the prices of similar homes in your area, and help you determine your marketplace.

If you are a Buyer, your REALTOR® can help you negotiate through the seller's agent, research the short sale listing, make offers, and submit appropriate paperwork.  Just because a property is listed with short sale terms does not mean the lender will accept your offer (even if the seller accepts it) so it helps to have an experienced agent on your side who understands the local market and the lenders involved.

The short sale agent you choose can make or break the deal. We can make the process easier. Contact us today!
