What makes a successful short sale transaction?

To us, it is a transaction in which the homeowner in distress understood his or her options and had right expectations about the short sale process.

It is a transaction in which our clients were kept informed about each step of the way and participated in the decision making. Furthermore, it is a transaction in which we minimized the financial and credit score ramifications for our clients.

And finally, it is a transaction after which prospects of foreclosure becomes a distant memory.

On this page you will find testimony from short sale homeowners just like you. Homeowners that I and my team of short sale specialist have helped to avoid foreclosure and get on the path to financial recovery.

$8K condo lien negotiated down to $1K and got it covered by the short sale lender

Details: Condo in Columbia with a very high outstanding condo fee balance. The lender cut down balance owed almost in half and our team of short sale specialists was able to negotiate partial deficiency waiver. FHA buyer found within 2 months of listing.

Feedback from sellers:

The AHG team is incredible. They made the impossible happen for us. We had a condo that’s market value was way below what we owed. We couldn’t afford it anymore. Rather than letting it go to foreclosure, AHG took on our condo. They worked very hard to find a buyer quickly, negotiate with our bank and the lawyers from our condo association. They took all the headaches away from us and kept us in the loop every step of the way. Within four months, they were able to sell our condo and have the bank release us from our loan. Our credit was barely touched and we were able to avoid foreclosure and possible future bankruptcy. We are extremely grateful to the team at Atlas and think the world of them. We HIGHLY recommend Atlas Home Group to everyone!
