Certified Distressed Property Expert Matt Gregory
Matt Gregory

If struggling with your mortgage you might be interested to discover how short sale transactions help homeowners avoid foreclosure.

I'm Matt Gregory and I'm a Certified Distressed Property Expert realtor. I've represented many friends and clients to buy and sell homes, but the most exciting part of my job is closing short sales. There's nothing more satisfying than helping homeowners avoid foreclosure. To see a long awaited short sale transaction close and watch our client walk away with a fresh start makes for a great days work! Of course, it takes much longer than one day and in fact, the short sale process can take a good amount of time.

Depending on a variety of factors, the entire process for most short sales can take from four to six months. Sometimes, less, and sometimes more. Thankfully, our professional team of experienced bank negotiators can often work with your lender to stall the sale date, giving us the time needed to complete a short sale. Have a look at the video and be sure to see the inspirational short sale success stories.

CAUTION: If facing foreclosure it's more important than ever to begin the short sale process ASAP. If you have received a Notice of Default, contact us immediately. If a SALE DATE has been set, it may be too late.
