A short sale specialist can begin to help the healing. JUST BECAUSE A REALTOR IS EXPERIENCED…DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE/SHE IS EXPERIENCED WITH SHORT SALES.

Avoid the Stress of Foreclosure
A foreclosure can be mentally and emotionally draining and publicly humiliating.

A short sale will help you avoid this, and move on with your life.

  • A short sale can help protect your financial future, salvage your credit and save your dignity.
  • Did you know that many people have been able to buy just after two years of a short sale?
  • Banks typically report to all three credit reporting agencies that your account has been “legally settled short of full payment.” A short sale shows responsibility on your credit because you made a choice to cooperate with the lender, versus abandoning the property and allowing the home to foreclose.
  • Did you know that a foreclosure stays on your permanent record? Yes, you may be able to buy again after 7-10 years but the foreclosure evidence does not go away.


Want Peace of Mind During This Stressful Time

How Much Money Does a Short Sale Cost?
How much money do you have to pay by choosing to do a short sale with Mick and Julie Perez? ZERO, ZILCH!

Our Short Sale Service is FREE. While many Brokers charge upfront fees to do a short sale, we do not. Beware of Realtors who charge you “upfront fees” for short sale service. Do they guarantee that ALL your money will be refunded if the bank denies your short sale? Probably not. We will NEVER charge you junk fees. You will not be required to pay for appraisal fees, inspection fees, or repairs. When you use Mick and Julie Perez, to represent you, we do not charge you a dime. We ONLY get paid if the short sale is approved, and we get paid by the bank…NOT YOU. This is a guarantee.

A Team You Can Count On and Trust

We understand that this is a difficult time. We do NOT use outside negotiation companies. Many Realtors hand over the file to other companies and/or other people. We are 100% hands on. We manage your entire file and all of your information is 100% confidential. We personally handle the negotiation process with the bank and will take care of your every need from Prior to LISTING all the way to CLOSING. We have the experience a proven system and successful track record to help you throughout the entire short sale process from the beginning to the close of escrow.
