 Short Sale Information

If you are having difficulty making mortgage payments due to a hardship, don't worry.  There are options available even if the home's value is less than the mortgage amount owed.  In a successful short sale, the bank allows a homeowner to sell the property for less than the outstanding mortgage balance and the debt is released.  The homeowner does not pay out of pocket for any closing costs like attorney fees or broker commissions as these expenses are included in the short sale.
Matt Melull has closed hundreds of real estate transactions involving mortgage foreclosures.  These situations often begin with an unexpected hardship that impacts a homeowner's ability to repay their mortgage.  Our team understands the financial and emotional stress caused by this difficult period and we are here to help guide you through the options available.
  • Our team specializes in situations involving distressed properties.  We have closed hundreds of REO and short sale transactions.

  • Closing costs and commissions are all included in the short sale.  We only get paid if the deal closes.

  • Professional marketing.  Your home will receive the same level of attention as all our listings, including professionally edited photos, print marketing, and internet exposure.
