Fernando Herboso has just completed his 31 Reasons Why You Should Do a Short Sale Before Allowing a Foreclosure on Your Property. I've explained short sales to many and been involved on both sides of the deal, but there's still so much to know and Fernando doesn't leave anything out.
Included in this 31st reason blog, are links to reasons 1 through 30. Anything you ever wanted to know about short sales, but didn't know who to ask.
For the month of May 2011, Herboso & Associates will post one post per day highlighting the reasons why you should do a short sale before you lose your property to a foreclosure.
Day #31 --Reason #31
Moving On After A Short Sale
The roller coaster ride a short sale brings starts with the first stop:
The events leading to the place where you realize you are in trouble is sometimes met by denial. At that time, you may think that is a temporary problem, a bump on the road and everything should be fine. .. it will take a little time and money and problem solved. . right?
Anger & Irritation:
You can't believe this is happening to you!
So much time and effort creating the perfect nest for your family and now it all seems a wasted effort. . .
You are angry at your loan officer, at your Realtor, at the bank. . and in some cases . . .even at your spouse.
Your self esteem takes a hit after you realize that your home. .your dreams are all vanishing and going away. It is a bitter pill to swallow when you are a proud homeowner. .but you should remember this ... it is not your fault, circumstances happened that now are requiring you to change.
Its the simple things in life that really matters.
The culmination of a short sale is like . . .a marriage ending in a divorce. You have to start again, learn from your mistakes and . . you don't really have no choice. .you simply move on.
Never ever play the blame game with your spouse. I've seen many short sales that ended up in a divorce and their children suffer as consequence of it.
This is an opportunity to a new life for you and your whole family.
Keep it in perspective. .a home is not a house of bricks and mortar. You make your home as happy or sad as you want. . its your choice!
I wrote 31 reasons in this series why you should consider a short sale instead of a foreclosure. .
I can sum it up in one sentence for you:
It's all business, never an emotional decision. Taking control of your future financial life is strongly advisable at this time for you.
. . ..instead of waiting for the Government and the economy to solve this problem for you. .
You may end up waiting a long. . long time. .
