Local CDPE-designated agents Stephanie Norvell, Chris Anderson, and Bonnie Dodson of Town & Country Real Estate have completed their coursework and received their Certified Distress Property Expert designation in an effort to provide several opportunities for homeowners to avoid the negative financial impact of foreclosure.
“It’s a concern to me that so few in our community know their options when they start to fall behind on mortgage payments,” Norvell said. “If they act quickly and get informed, they can make informed decisions to find financial stability.”
Foreclosure alternatives such as short sales — which now make up over one-third of real estate closings across the nation — are an increasingly popular way for homeowners and lenders to minimize their losses in this tough economy.
“More lenders are realizing that they can save money in a short sale versus a foreclosure, and are more likely than they were three years ago to approve a short sale offer.” Anderson said. “This is good news for homeowners because they now have more options than ever.”
The CDPE designation Norvell, Anderson, and Dodson have earned provides real estate professionals with specific understanding of the complex issues confronting distressed homeowners. Through comprehensive training and experience, CDPE-designated agents are able to provide solutions for homeowners facing financial hardship in today’s market, they said.
