Real People, Having a Real Conversation About Their Florida Foreclosure Short Sale . . . Sarasota, Bradenton Lakewood Ranch, and Statewide

Yes, being in a situation where you are facing foreclosure and have to contemplate a short sale of your home is not fun, nor is it insignificant, but I promise you . . . it's not the end of the world! Too many people allow their foreclosure problems to cloud their judgment and ruin their spirit.

 

Folks! I PROMISE you, in five years you will look back on things and realize that they are not so bad as you might be making them out to be. Thank God you're not withering away from cancer! Count your lucky stars that your children are healthy! They can't send you to jail for being in foreclosure and they can't take away the things that really matter in life, like family, friends, food on the table . . .

 

Here's a little video pertaining to this mortgage mess that the politicians and bankers have gotten us all into . . . I hope you get a chuckle out of it . . . I hope it makes you realize that facing foreclosure isn't as nearly as bad as it seems if you face up to it and do what it takes to stop foreclosure. Foreclosure help is available. Enjoy the video!

Hi JM --I approve, too. I think it's a brillant video. Did you post it on your Facebook Business Page? Link to it on Twitter? How do you get it out to the public?

A sense of humor is essential, especially in your market!

Best to you in 2011.
