You and I have friends and neighbors who are in need. These are families like yours and mine. They go to our schools, shop at our markets, play sports with our kids. Today, 1 in 7 homes across America is in distress with homeowners who aren’t making their monthly payments. That is an average of 2 distressed homes/families per street across America.
Some homeowners in this situation are in denial, some are trying loan modifications (not knowing that only 1 in 5 loan mods actually succeed), some try short sales (selling their home for less than is owed to the bank), but eventually many lose their homes to foreclosure.
You and I can help these friends and neighbors. We can help them through awareness – an awareness that they are not alone, that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and that they need to seek the right person to guide them through these troubled waters. For most of these people, short sale is the best answer to their difficult situation – but it is a path that should only be travelled with an experienced and knowledgeable trail guide.
Part of the problem is misinformation. Unfortunately, 76% of short sales fail nationwide. Why you ask? The sad answer is largely due to real estate agent error. THE HOMEOWNER CHOSE THEIR REAL ESTATE AGENT INCORRECTLY. You see, a short sale is a completely different transaction than a regular home sale, and it requires a different skill set and level of experience to be successful. Homeowners are fooled by slick marketing and empty promises made by agents who simply have no business being involved in short sales. Calling on a family member or friend to sell a short sale could be a significant financial mistake with huge longterm ramifications.
I work with a short sale team that has successfully closed over 1500 short sales. They are the best in the industry and deliver on results. Plain and simple, we get short sales closed and we want to help as many homeowners as we can. I am the trail guide who can lead them effectively down the short sale path and solve their problem.
You can help your friends (who, by the way, also have friends in distress) by making them aware just like I have made you aware. If you know of anyone in this situation, please contact me, and I will be happy to do whatever I can to help. Best of all, my assistance won’t cost them a dime and will save much headache, heartbreak, and expense for them down the road.
