Why I Achieved the SFR – Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certification

Real Estate Agent with The Gene Group Inc

Short sales and foreclosure - two phrases that were minutely heard of a short five years ago.  Now, however, these are common descriptions for a great amount of property listings.  It's unfortunate but it is a sign of the economic crisis our country is stumbling through.

Sellers going through short sales and buyers contemplating the purchase of a foreclosed home require resources, information and care more so than a traditional buyer or seller. While the education needed to be a great real estate agent in the traditional sense is exceptional, providing assistance for distressed properties requires additional education and skills that can only be ascertained via a few select educational sources and practical experience.

Upon noticing the changing trend in the real estate market and witnessing several people in Beavercreek experiencing these changes by way of short sales and foreclosures, I knew I had to be prepared to take appropriate action. I didn't want my clients going through these stressful events alone with no idea of where to turn or what to do.  Additionally, I wanted to be sure my knowledge and skills to assist buyers and sellers were timely and applicable when it came time for these folks to consider short sale and distressed property options in my Beavercreek area. I did my homework and found exceptional resources with the SFR (Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Designation) and knew that achieving this designation would empower me to be an asset in this changing market.

By being SFR certified, I can provide the homeowner experiencing the short sale process with resources, information and expert negotiating skills while navigating them through this often stressful ordeal. Additionally, my SFR certification coupled with my extensive distressed property experience has armed me with the knowledge and abilities to protect both buyers and sellers and potentially limit their risks when purchasing or selling a foreclosed property. The SFR certification has empowered me to be an asset to my Beavercreek market and I look forward to the opportunity of helping more families facing this complicated situation.

If you are looking at the short sale option or are considering the possibilities of purchasing a foreclosed property, give me a call and let my SFR designation work for you!
