Avoid Foreclosure

Avoid Foreclosure

What is a short sale?

A short sale occurs when a homeowner owes a mortgage company more than the market value of the home. A sale is considered “short” when the homeowner’s mortgage company agrees to accept a sale price less than the amount of the loan balance.

What is foreclosure?
A foreclosure begins when a homeowner defaults on a loan and the mortgage company files a public default notice. The lender takes possession of the property securing the loan in order to recover the amount of money that is owed.

She has earned this prestigious designation, after having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales. This is invaluable expertise to offer Westport home owners at a time when the Fairfield County area is ravaged by “distressed” homes in the foreclosure process.

More and more lenders are willing to consider short sales because they are much less costly than foreclosures.
