Brian White from Paramount Real Estate Services Earns Real Estate, Short Sale Designation to Help Homeowners in Danger of Foreclosure
Salem, Oregon – February 18, 2012 – Brian White of Paramount Real Estate Services in Salem has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) designation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance, with a particular emphasis on short sales. At a time when millions of homeowners are struggling with the possibility of foreclosure, the skills and education amassed by White will help benefit Salem & Keizer-area residents and communities.
Short sales allow the distressed homeowner to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for, even if 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.
Today, more than 13 percent of homeowners are delinquent on their mortgage or in the foreclosure process. This is occurring across all price ranges, and the fastest-growing category of homes in foreclosure is the luxury home market.
“The CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with homeowners and lenders on complicated short sales,” said Brian. “It is so rewarding to be able to help families save their homes from foreclosure and help them sell their home on their own terms with dignity.”
Alex Charfen, co-founder and CEO of the Distressed Property Institute in Austin, Texas, said that agents such as Brian White with the CDPE Designation have valuable perspective on the market, and training in short sales that can offer homeowners real alternatives to foreclosure, which can be devastating to credit ratings.
“These experts better understand market conditions than the average agent, and can help sellers through the complications of foreclosure avoidance,” he said.
The Distressed Property Institute provides live and online courses to train real estate professionals how to help homeowners in distress, with a strong focus on handling short sales.
“Our goal is to help as many homeowners as possible, by educating as many real estate professionals as possible,” Charfen said. “Brian White has demonstrated a commitment to struggling homeowners, a commitment that can provide much-needed stabilization to the community.”
Brian says, “in order for our communities, our towns, our states and our country to become healthy and vibrant again; we need to tackle this demanding issue head on. We need to first find successful ways to help homeowners stay in their homes and then clear out the inventory of the homes where homeowners were not successful. This is a critical time for the American people.”
