How did you let that happen to yourself?

I am the first to admit that we can’t control all things in our lives. After all, you did not choose to have that sparkling personality, did you? Anyway, I digress.

As I was driving to the office today I noticed the folks walking our 5 mile sidewalk course here in Rockledge, Florida. All shapes, all sizes. I saw a lady that was rather “large.” I thought to myself, “how did you let that happen to you?”

That is not an accusatory question.

Sellers who are “upside down” and needing to sell their homes as “short sales” ask themselves the same question. Not in an accusatory, antagonistic way.

Sometimes things happen we do not foresee.

As a youngster I was always a bit “husky.” OK, I liked to eat and it was encouraged in my family! Did I let “husky” happen? I did not know any better. [Eventually I lost a lot of weight and kept it off for about 30 years!]

Many home owners find themselves in the same situation. The mortgage rate has risen. Jobs have been lost or salary cut. Costs have crept upward. Like my "husky" issue, some did not know any better.

If you are in a situation where you need to sell your home but you are upside down, call me to discuss the possibility of a short sale.
