Short Sales Impact Realtors, Homeowners
Linda Craft Explains Improving Short Sale Results
RALEIGH –The Triangle-area home marketplace features plenty of short-sales going into the second quarter of 2010. Linda Craft of Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS® recently presented information on how REALTORS® can speed a short-sale approval to help both the home seller and potential buyers. A short sale is when a homeowner sells property for less than the mortgage balance, and the lender accepts the sale as payment in full.
Craft’s presentation, at “Short Sale Answers” on Friday, April 16th, touched on how agents can improve their chances of having lenders approve short sales. “Short sales can be a time of high stress for homeowners and agents alike,” said Craft. “By learning more about the process, REALTORS® can provide peace of mind while they’re easing the short sale process for homeowners.”
Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS® recently launched a website dedicated to helping owners of distressed properties examine all their options, at http://www.raleighrealestateforeclosures.com/. Craft currently holds a CDPE designation and receives weekly training through the CDPE organization to stay abreast of the changes in guidelines and programs such as the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program, or “HAFA”, launched April 5th, 2010.
