If you find yourself in a position where you owe more than your home is worth and you need to sell, a short sale may be your best option. But don’t get taken for a long, stressful ride by a self-proclaimed ‘expert’…
“What is a short sale?”
Simply put, a short sale is a real estate transaction where the homeowner owes their lender more than what their property is worth and they need to sell. In a short sale, the lender must approve and accept less than what they are owed as full payoff (this means they may settle for $400,000, even if you currently owe them $500,000…even if the loss is hundreds of thousands of dollars).
- Are you facing a financial hardship that you know will decrease your income?
- Are you getting behind on your mortgage and you’re not sure if you can catch up?
- Or do you just need to sell quickly but your home is worth less now than when you bought it?
If you are facing any of the situations above, and you think a short sale might be your best option, then read on. If you’re still not sure and just want more info, then scroll to the bottom of this page and request a free copy of our article “The 9 Alternatives When Facing Foreclosure”
Don’t worry. It’s not your fault… You gotta remember, we’ve all had our ups and downs in life and a lot of other good people are also in the same tough spot as you. Life seems scary when you’re facing the reality of foreclosure and I know how you feel when you just don’t wanna answer the phone anymore…
We all agree that we’re in the middle of a national mortgage crisis and that, in many cases, homeowners who have bought or refinanced in the last few years have been seriously abused by unethical lending practices!!
You bought your home and hoped (like we all did) that it would increase in value (and some folks were even promised it would!), but most likely the harsh reality is that now your home is worth less than when you bought it and the value is still declining sharply.
I’ve helped hundreds of homeowners in this position to get the help they deserve. I’ve also, helped train hundreds of real estate professionals both locally and across the nation to do the same for their clients.
It’s sad but true! Did you know that nearly 90% of the homeowners nationwide who try to “short sale” their home will end up losing their home to foreclosure due to an uneducated or lazy agent?
Don’t allow this to happen to you! I hate to say this about my fellow agents, but the majority of them that are “trying to help” have not been properly trained and sadly, they are misinformed as to how to even negotiate with lenders. Some even get so far as to submit your ‘short sale packet’ and then just sit back and wait for a response! In the end, they simply don’t know how to help you and you will become one of those “90%” that were not helped.
“Short sales are not easy!” …unless you seek the help of an expert agent with a proven track record. I have been personally trained by a former Chief Loss Mitigator who is a career loss mitigator and asset manager with 20 years in the business (he is ultimately the guy at the bank who accepts or declines short sales). Actually, I went so far as to make him my partner and train my entire office. We are now helping save even more folks from foreclosure.
We have successfully negotiated short sales for hundreds of families and as you can see from my recent approval letters below (I swap out some of my recent approvals every couple months, so you will notice these will have been from within the last 90 days), we actually get the banks to say YES to our short sales. Before you agree to have an agent help you sell your home, ask him/her to show you just one short sale approval within the last 6 months… I doubt they can.
The best part is, my business partner, has taken his tips and tricks from working INSIDE THE BANK and taught my team and I exactly how to ethically BEAT THE BANK… 93.2% of the time!
My partner recently worked for IndyMac Bank, a top ten lender, as the head of their HELOC loss mitigation division. His insider knowledge and broad base of industry contacts allow us to get our approvals faster than any other agents in Southern California! In fact, we are constantly solicited by agents nationwide to ‘help them’ get their short sales approved.
Now it’s up to you… I am ready, along with my team of experts, to go to battle for you. Are you ready to take a serious look at your options and see how a short sale can help you:
- Avoid paying TAXES on the money the bank loses at foreclosure! (Yes, you may have to pay taxes on the amount of loss to the bank if the home goes to foreclosure!)
- Save your credit from the “Foreclosure” ding
- Avoid Bankruptcy
- Avoid Foreclosure
- Relieve the stress that this financial burden has become
- WITH NO OUT OF POCKET FEES OR ANY UPFRONT COSTS OF ANY KIND! …or in other words, you pay me nothing and if I do my job and save you from foreclosure, only then will I get paid by the lender!
