Latest Foreclosure and Short Sale Statistics

Handling the Stress of an Unaffordable Mortgage Payment

Whenever I research the latest foreclosure and distressed property statistics, the sheer number of Americans facing the stress of losing their homes amazes me.  It is my goal to help as many homeowners I can either stay in their homes or relieve the burden of their mortgages. Knowing that there are so many that need my help is a driving force for me to continue doing what I do.

In fact, I just released another report that I’ve made available on my website today. It explains the CDPE designation and lists 10 options that homeowners can take advantage of to relieve the stress that comes with owing their mortgage lenders more money than they can afford to pay.

The report also draws a contrast between short sales and foreclosures. Unfortunately, there’s a growing trend of “strategic defaulters” who think it’s smart to let their home go into foreclosure. As any one who follows this blog knows, there is nothing strategic about foreclosure; it’s one of the most long-lasting, negative financial challenges you can go through.

I’m excited about acting as a resource for more homeowners who have questions about what they should do. As always, if you know homeowners who may need my help, have them contact me immediately! Together, we can put them back on the path to financial stability.

Thanks for the information. I don't know any other way to be :) It's a tough market out there and I don't know if it is going to get any better..... I just have to get better I guess.

Hey Chris, just an FYI if you care. You can/should create a better link to your site to help you improve your seo results, instead of "Click here for more information," you could have used something like "KC Area Short Sales Advice."

Chris..it is an interesting and at times, overwhelming area of the housing market.
congrats on your chosen path withing the Profession. Sincere wishes for successful enterprises. 
Many people do not know the difference between Foreclosure and short Sales much less the latest  strategic defaulter [those who walk away];  those who are what we call 'regular sellers' are caught up in this mess too as many buyers expect ALL Homes to reflect the lower prices. Have a good week.

Barb,

It is difficult to educate sellers and buyers these days. All we can do is provide them with as much education as possible and hope that they begin to understand. Have a great last half of the week!
