This site is devoted to helping people interested in or engaged in the short sale process by educating them to some of the ins and outs of the process. My name is Jim Schroeder and I am an attorney and a real estate agent licensed in New Jersey. I serve clients throughout the southern part of the state working out of offices in Egg Harbor City, Woodbury and Medford.
I have wanted to create a site like this for quite some time but finally carved out the time. My hope is that this effort will decrease people’s anxiety and stress level in dealing with short sales. Sadly the majority of distressed homeowners are so intimidated and discouraged they never contact an attorney or real estate professional and allow their home to fall into foreclosure. This experience does more than destroys a person’s financial health it takes a heavy emotional, spiritual, physical and relational toll. Divorces, health problems, depression, even suicide attempts are sometimes at least caused in part by the long, public and debilitating foreclosure process.
I encourage you to anonymously read through the information on this site. I hope that learning about the process will help you get your arms around the issues you face. The number one thing you can do to help yourself is to educate yourself. The second most important thing is to surround yourself with quality professionals who are knowledgeable and supportive guides from where you are to where you need to go.
While this is a new site the information is gleaned through going to bat for client after client, working through the process, learning as it changes month by month, gathering intelligence about lenders and their unique processes and closing deals that help people move forward in life. A good short sale deal is a win-win-win.
#1 A win for the seller who gets out from under a situation they can no longer manage.
#2 A win for the buyer who gets a house they love at a price which creates instant or quickly builds equity in comparison to the competitive market.
#3 A win for the lenders and investors who, while taking a loss, recoup as much of their investment as possible through the knowledge that they received the highest and best offer for the property without the added cost and delay of foreclosure.
