We Work Twice As Hard For You!


Attention Homeowners!
Need to sell but can’t afford to? Don’t know what to do?
You are not alone! A short sale option might be right for you.
What is a SHORT SALE?
When a bank or mortgage lender agrees to discount a loan balance
due to an economic or financial hardship on the part of the
mortgagor. This negotiation is done through communication with
the bank. The home owner/debtor sells the mortgaged property for
less than the outstanding loan, and turns over the proceeds of the
sale to the lender in satisfaction of the debt. In such instances, the
lender has the right to approve or disapprove of a proposed sale.
We have experience in successfully closing short sales!
Call us to learn more (248) 901-0271
