Homeowner's Guide to Redding CA Short Sales

Article by Chris & Maria Jeantet, Short Sale Agents in Redding CA

A huge amount of patience is necessary during the course of a Short Sale process. Whether we are managing a Short Sale in Redding CA or surrounding communities, one thing we know for sure, THERE IS NOTHING 'SHORT' about a Short Sale.

Patience is required on the part of all parties involved AND it is essential to work with an agent that knows what he or she is doing. There's a big difference between promoting yourself as an experienced agent and actually having proven experience to successfully help homeowners who are facing foreclosure!

Below is a snapshot of the life of a short sale in Shasta County:
