Short Sales: Do the Problems In Greece Affect Us?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Action
IL – The Greeks are finding themselves in hot water. They have maxed out their credit. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. The government borrowed money and is having a hard time paying it back today. Here is what most people don't understand about how a national economy works. When the government reduces interest rates to boost the economy and spending, they are actually only acting as a co-signer on the loan. Here is a real life comparison. Let's say a wealthy person has lots of kids. I'll call him Mr. Wealthy. To boost his kid’s economic activity he lends them money at 1% interest. However, because he has so many kids, pretty soon he has lent all of his own money. So he starts borrowing money from someone else at 6%. Pretty soon he has maxed out his credit. In addition, he is also paying the difference in interest payments between 1% and 6% each month. That difference is almost ready to eat up his remaining savings. After he runs out of money; he'll be broke. Let me ask you a question? How much longer will his kids be able to enjoy below market 1% interest rates? It doesn't sound like much longer to me. This is what happens when a government with a good credit rating borrows money and re-lends it to citizens for below market interest rates. It sounds to me like Greece borrowed a lot of money from foreigners and is now having a hard time repaying the debt. A bailout from Germany, the EU, and the IMF hasn't stopped their problems yet. And it doesn't look like it will be anything other than a short term band-aid. Many say that when Greece does default it will send shock waves thru the global economy. Who really knows? Either way, it is still a good idea to get rid of upside down debt with a short sale. Thinking about a short sale? I can help you short sale your property and get back on your feet.

Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why? Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit. However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification. We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision. This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision.

If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.

Hi Dennis I've received my I.R.E.S. Designation in Vancouver, BC, Canada and I noticed that you have similar designations.  I'm messaging you because I want to expand my international connections.  I'm presently building a larger network so that your listings can be featured in my city (for an international exposure), and mine can be featured by you.  Presently I have approximately 20 listings which might be of interest to you.  

Interested?  Look forward to chatting some more with you with respect to co-listing each other's properties, if you are interested in speaking further?  Cheers, Jark.
