Selling Your Home

Short Sales
DEFINITION: When a property is sold for less than is owed to the lien holder.
You hear the term "short sale" now almost every day in real estate. The term refers to the sale of a property that result in a "shortage" to the lien holder. Recently the Obama administration implemented a program referred to as "Making Home Affordable". This program sets forth incentives (for lenders) and procedural guidelines for "short sales" and DIL (deeds in lieu of foreclosure) under this plan.

I (Sue Zabel) am proud to announce I have earned the accreditation of SFR (certified Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource). I have much experience "where the rubber meets the road" with short sales, as well, I have and continue to seek additional education to support my street knowledge.

We are equipped to help you through the short sale process from start to finish. Be prepared - it is not a short or quick process, but one which can keep you in your home during the process and help keep you credit loss to a minimum.
