Foreclosure Alternatives Under the Magnifying Glass
Linda Craft, CEO of Linda Craft Team Realtors, is releasing an informational report comparing the consequences of a short sale to a foreclosure. The report can be found at http://www.raleighrealestateforeclosures.com . It draws on information Craft uses to advise her clients in the greater Triangle area, as a Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE).
“Foreclosure can be devastating for the homeowner and the surrounding community. Despite an improving economy in the Raleigh metro area, it is important that everyone knows all of the alternatives available,” said Linda Craft, CEO of Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS® & Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE). “I try to ensure that homeowners have the best information available so that they can make the most informed decision possible.”
For many homeowners, once a mortgage payment has been missed, the lender has the ability to begin the foreclosure process. A short sale can potentially minimize the damage to one’s future loan eligibility, credit score, employment, security clearance and more.
The CDPE designation provides real estate agents with the tools and knowledge needed to efficiently, ethically and effectively pursue foreclosure alternatives, specifically short sales. In addition to their initial training, CDPE-designated agents are connected to a network of professionals via the Charfen Institute, allowing them to remain regularly updated on the complex and quickly changing real estate market. The free report entitled “Foreclosures Alternatives under the Magnifying Glass” is accessible from her website, http://www.raleighrealestateforeclosures.com at: http://www.raleighrealestateforeclosures.com/Foreclosure-Alternatives-Under-The-Magnifying-Glass.aspx
