It’s a sign of the times!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams - First Atlanta

Most of us grew up thinking that if we planned well and played by the rules, we’d never have to stand by as our financial lives unraveled. 

But upheaval on Wall Street, unacceptable rates of unemployment and plummeting real estate values have taken their toll.  Since 2007, 7.9 million homeowners have lost their homes to foreclosure. Current estimates are that one in four homeowners owe more on their mortgages than they could get from the sale of their home. Millions more homes will be lost to foreclosure before this real estate crisis runs its course.

The sad fact is that foreclosure is not an isolated event. For months leading up to the loss of a home, financially strapped homeowners live under a cloud of uncertainty.  And then for many years afterwards, the blow to credit gets in the way of buying another home or buying anything on credit. Foreclosure even complicates employment prospects.

The impact of foreclosure is huge and the sad fact is that it’s often avoidable.

As a real estate professional who has earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, my mission is to provide financially strapped homeowners with options to foreclosure, ensure that they steer clear of scams, and help navigate them through the solution that best meets their needs.

Among the most important facts to keep in mind: the sooner help is sought, the better the options.

These are tough times, but more help is available than ever before. If you or someone you care about is ready to navigate away from the dark cloud of an unmanageable mortgage and realize that hope and blue skies are within reach, contact me today and let’s get started.

I am a Certified Distressed Property Expert who is here to assist you with the home selling process and to answer any questions that you might have. Call me directly at 678-357-5829 or if you would rather send me an email, SoldBySanna@kw.com. If you like this blog, let me know! You can also “like” my Facebook page. I look forward to working with you or someone you know in 2016!

Are short sales and foreclosures still a big issue in Atlanta, Sasanna? California's central valley has bounced back nicely; I had hoped the same in your area.

After serveral years of being short-sale heavy laden here in Sacramento, we are seeing fewer in recent months.
