Are you are facing foreclosure and want to know if a short sale is the right thing to do?

There are an endless amount of questions that go along with this difficult decision.  DO NOT PAY FOR SHORT SALE ASSISTANCE or sign your home over to anyone no matter what they tell you.

For starters we always recommed talking to an attorney or accountant for legal assistance.

We can help with the rest!

  • We are all licensed Realtors and handle your entire process from the day we list your property to the day escrow closes.  We are in contact with the bank for you.
  • We have successfully closed numerous short sales & been successful in negotiating with the banks. 


Some things you need to do to prepare for your short sale are:

-Have us do a FREE CMA on your property to see what it is worth in this current market.

-Gather your last 2 years of taxes

-Get a short sale packet from your bank

-Write a letter as to why you HAVE TO short sale your home - we can assist you with this

-Your last 2 months bank statements

-Write a letter of permission for us to handle your short sale

-Wait for us to bring you offers...

Just remember short sales are anything but a short process...they do take some time to get through.  Short means short of money not short of time.
