The Shame of a Short Sale…

What is this thing called shame?  The Free Dictionary calls it painful emotion caused by a strong sense of guilt, embarrassment.

When one sells a house or condo for less than the mortgage owed, this is called a short sale.   The situation that resulted in the circumstance is not important to me.  
As real estate agents, our job is to advise, represent and sell – not judge!
The truth is that although a short sale is often emotional there should be no shame.  Similarly, foreclosures very often happen to good people.

As with other things in life…
There is no shame in getting defeated..The shame is in not getting up and trying again.
I counsel buyers when purchasing a short sale to remember there are real people on the other side of the table.

If a short sale is in your future, call me or drop me an email. We would like to assist you in this process.
