River Club Short Sale Closes Without Deficiency! - 02/29/12 10:11 AM
River Club Short Sale Closes Without Deficiency! The Jarvis Team just closed one of our short sales in the River Club in Suwanee (This is the most expensive and luxurious neighborhood in Gwinnett County by far). This short sale was a Suntrust mortgage and although it took a few months and we went through 2 buyers, this River Club short sale was closed and the owner didn't have a deficiency. Meaning they didn't have to pay Suntrust back anything. The debt was, of course, forgiven. I was excited to share this story with you because so often we hear stories about (0 comments)
New Short Sale Timelines - 02/22/12 08:27 AM
New Short Sale Timelines I was working on a resource guide for our buyer's agents and buyers of our short sale alike and wanting to give them some more specifics than just the usual 60 days and get into some bank specifics. After reviewing our data from doing Atlanta Short Sales, I was very impressed to see that Timelines have sped up significantly! I was pretty impressed that Citi Short Sales got even better! Suntrust also made huge improvements! Citi Short Sales - Less than 30 days in most cases. Our last one was 6 days! Wells Fargo Short Sales - (2 comments)
Atlanta Real Estate Market Seems Like it's On Fire! - 02/13/12 05:30 PM
If you're shopping for an Atlanta Home For Sale, then you've likely noticed that their are other people looking at the same homes for sale that you are looking for. It's not just Atlanta, or the common favorites of Alpharetta Homes or Lawrenceville homes, but high end properties like Sugarloaf Country Club are experiencing major uptick in interest and overall traffic. With the market being between 50% to 80% distressed ( either a short sale or foreclosure which both are taking over 45 days to close) - meaning we won't know if these buyers are legitimate until later in the time (1 comments)
Your Loan Officer Shouldn't Be In A Different Time Zone - 02/10/12 04:27 PM
Your Loan Officer Shouldn't Be In A Different Time Zone We've been blessed to close a lot of Atlanta Short Sales in the past few years and there's a few things that we've learned. One of them is value of a good loan officer. A good one can make the buying experience less stressful overall. Their savvineess when it comes to short sales and foreclosure properties can save a client money or some cases save the client the home. Likewise a lame duck loan officer like the ones at Capital Lending Group could make more than just a buyer homeless in (1 comments)
