Homeowners: Seek Advice Ahead of Market Turmoil According to
Linda Craft of Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS®
RALEIGH – More home foreclosures loom on the horizon, according to REALTOR® Linda Craft of Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS®. Craft recently traveled to Austin to meet with the number one short sale expert in the country Alex Charfen, CEO and founder of the Certified Distressed Property Institute.
Charfen says the next wave of foreclosures will be the option ARMS (Adjustable Rate Mortgages) that will reset in 2010 and 2011. He indicates that one of ten homeowners is delinquent on their mortgage, indicating that when interest rates increase, more Triangle houses will be pushed into foreclosure or short sale.
Craft will be attending a three day conference called Momentum in May where representatives from Bank of America, Fannie Mae and others will prepare attendees for the next wave.

Craft is the first in the Triangle-region to hold the designation of Certified Distressed Property Expert, from nearly two (2) million REALTORS® nationwide. Craft received this designation in early 2008 and has stayed current with
advanced training every month through CDPE. The training allows her to remain on top of the changing market and requirements to successfully negotiate with mortgage companies to save her clients from foreclosures.
Alex Charfen also owns Star Power, a coaching and training company for REALTORS® from many different companies all
