Atlanta Short Sales Seeing Success – There is No Reason to Foreclose

Atlanta, Georgia / / January 30, 2012 — Atlanta based Short Sale Real Estate Expert, Rhonda Duffy is seeing huge success with short sales and lenders saying “Yes, Sell It”! This means that there is absolutely no reason for anyone to foreclose on their property and take a 7-year beating on their credit! If a homeowner has a hardship there is a good chance that their lender wants to help the homeowner who is in mortgage default if the homeowner is willing to stay put and find a buyer for the home. It appears that lenders do not want foreclosures on their books.

“There is a real sense of urgency now with these lenders” says Rhonda Duffy, owner and broker of Duffy Realty of Atlanta and now ranked #1 Short Sale Specialist in Georgia according the MLS. “No one wins with a foreclosure, and certainly not the homeowner. They get penalized with their credit score, potential harm with future and current employers pulling their credit, insurance carriers pulling their credit for insurance purposes, and everyone knows that all creditors charge more in interest to someone with bad credit. And worst, homeowners report that the collection agencies make life almost unbearable at time as they attempt to collect the deficiency judgement.

If a homeowner is behind in their mortgage and facing foreclosure due to a circumstance that has happened to them, the lenders are prepared to help. That is the good news. The bad news is that they won’t wait long for a homeowner to take the help. There is a short window for success with a short sale and the more time that a homeowner has to do a short sale, the better the outcome. Again, there is simply no reason, especially in a fast moving market like Atlanta Georgia to risk a foreclosure.
