EAST RUTHERFORD (Aug. 5, 2010) — Jane Frank, broker/owner of Century 21 Gold Advantage, East Rutherford, is proud to announce that Evelyn Paladino, Christine Van Dyk and Lea Cheskevich — all with Century 21 Gold Advantage — have earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification.
The National Association of Realtors offers the SFR certification to Realtors who want to help both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for professional expertise with distressed sales grows.
According to a recent National Association of Realtors survey, nearly one-third of all existing homes sold recently were either short sales or foreclosures.
For many real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new “traditional” transaction.
Realtors who have earned the SFR certification know how to help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales as well as help buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.
“As leading advocates for home-ownership, Realtors believe that any family that loses its home to foreclosure is one family too many, but unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or a short sale results,” Frank said.
“Foreclosures and short sales can offer opportunities for home buyers and benefit the larger community, as well, but it’s extremely important to have the help of a real estate professional like a Realtor who has earned the SFR certification for these kinds of purchases.”
If you find yourself in a situation where you need the assistance of a Realtor with the short sale of your property or if you are a buyer interested in purchasing a short sale property please give us a call here at Century 21 Gold Advantage.
Call 201-964-2100 and ask for Evelyn Paladino, Christine Van Dyk or Lea Cheskevich.
