Why Should you Choose a CDPE agent to Sell Your Home When Doing a Short Sale?
Today, 1 out of every 10 homeowners in America is behind on mortgage payments. These are tough and frustrating times. Now more than ever, it's important to identify your options. Foreclosure can be avoided and your financial future can be salvaged. In a short sale transaction, homeowners sell their property for less than the mortgage amount, but avoid the foreclosure process.
The Distressed Property Institute trains real estate professionals to engage and assist homeowners facing hardships. The Institute has developed a course to provide the tools and knowledge to handle distressed properties, including short sales, deeds-in-lieu, mortgage modifications, forbearance, refinances, reinstatements and, if that fails, how to help homeowners through the foreclosure process. After completing a comprehensive on-site or online course, graduates are awarded the Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) Designation.
Please understand though, you also have to interview agents to not only have the CDPE Designation but they have to be a full time professional Realtor® skilled with cutting edge marketing skills to get your home sold in the first place as well. Many key factors go into selling a home as a short sale. Choose your Realtor® wisely, now more than ever you need an experienced, qualified, trained Realtor® to handle your distressed property needs.
Nationally, only 12 percent of short sales are approved. Among CDPE designated Realtors®, more than 80 percent of short sales are approved, that's a huge difference. It's important you choose a agent that has the expertise and knowledge to get your home sold in this changeling market. Next you have to make sure they can protect you, guide you and get your short sale approved. Now more than ever homeowners should interview at least three Realtors® before choosing the best one to sell their home.
As an agent with the CDPE® Designation, I have a strong and unique appreciation of the factors affecting the market, and know that there are options available to you.
