According to the National Association of Realtors, foreclosures and short sales now make up nearly half of all real estate transactions.
That’s a lot.
And it means that as a real estate professional, you’re going to come across more and more of these deals – and that you should be closing with a real estate lawyer who is knowledgeable about the process and ready to work with you to get your deals done.
At Harlan and Associates, we’ve handled hundreds of short sales, and we’re here to put our expertise to work for you.
Whether you are an agent, investor, or lender, you’re in an ideal position to help homeowners considering short-sale transactions. After all, most sellers don’t have any idea where to start or how to approach their lender, let alone negotiate a complete short sale. They need help, and they turn to you.
But if you need help, where do you turn?
That’s where we come in. As real estate attorneys who know the short sale process, working with us increases your chances of getting that final short sale approval. We’ll prepare draft HUDs for you to include in your lender package – and revise that HUD as your offer may change. We’ll review your contract, and draft any specialized language that you many need. We’ll also do an initial examination of the property’s title to see if there are any lines or judgments which could derail the entire transaction.
In other words, we’re here to help you put together the most complete and well-organized short sale proposal possible and to work with you to get that proposal approved.
Short sales can be tough. Reports show that less than half of proposed short sales are ever approved. But experts unanimously agree that a good real estate lawyer on your side is vitally important in getting your short sales done – and at Harlan and Associates, we’re ready to work for you.
