Victoria Gore of Gore & Associates in Torrey Highlands, a division of Keller Williams Realty, has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales. The CDPE is the premier designation for Realtors helping homeowners in distress and handling short sales. This is invaluable expertise to offer at a time when the area is ravaged by “distressed” homes in the foreclosure process.
Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for, even though it is lower than what is owed on the property. With plummeting property values, this can save many people from foreclosure and even bankruptcy. More and more lenders are willing to consider short sales because they are much less costly than foreclosures.
“This CDPE designation has been invaluable in learning the detailed processes and procedures for working with lenders on complicated short sales. Experts who understand this can close a short sale in a much quicker time frame,” said GORE. “It is so rewarding to be able to guide sellers through the process of saving their homes from foreclosure and in finding the best solution to whatever financial crisis they are facing.”
Alex Charfen, founder of the Distressed Property Institute in Boca Raton, Fla., said that Realtors® such as GORE with the CDPE designation have valuable training in short sales that can offer the homeowner much better alternatives to foreclosure, which virtually destroys the credit rating. These experts also may better understand market conditions and can help sellers through the emotional experience, he said.
