Have You Heard of HAFA? Do You Qualify for a HAFA Short Sale? What is HAFA?

Real Estate Agent with Casa Latino Four Corners, REALTOR, CDPE

 What in the world is HAFA?  From the CDPE website, www.CDPE.com


I love my CDPE designation!  The above video is one of the MANY reasons why.  Alex Charfen and other CDPEs really make a difficult process simple!   

Clearly, CDPEs are THE real estate agents to go to if you or someone you know needs to sell a Short Sale property!  The banks know that selling a short sale is a hassle and, partly because of this, part of the HAFA program REQUIRES a distressed homeowner to seek the aid of a licensed real estate agent to sell their home. 

A very misunderstood thing about Short Sale transactions is that THE BANK pays my commission on behalf of a distressed homeowner!  The homeowners may think they cannot afford me but they CAN because THEIR bank pays me!  Woot! 

And, yes, I am a CDPE, or Certified Distressed Property Expert for Short Sales!

Short Sale Success-    

If you or a friend are facing Foreclosure on your current property, what do you do? 

Do you know the difference between a FORECLOSURE and a SHORT SALE?  Do you know how either of these options will affect you legally, financially, and with your taxes?  Do you understand your other options if you want to avoid foreclosure?

Oh the fun of short sales.  Several of my agents have this designation.  Pretty intense training from what I hear.

Keeping pretty busy lately huh?

Hi Lisa!

How are you doing with the short sales? what is the fastest you've gotten a 3rd party approval?

Andy-  Quickest so far from start to close is 2 months.  That was Wells Fargo.  I have NO idea how it got approved and closed so quickly, esp. since the Seller's other condo in that community is with same lender and is still sitting there...
