Hi Erik,

Sometimes you can get a really good deal with a short sale or foreclosure.  I would be happy to discuss, in depth, the details with you, please give me a call.

Short Sales = frustration, confusion, delays, time consuming, might never actually close


Foreclosures are no longer in foreclosure so they are usually bank owned or REO homes. They are pretty much like buying any home from anyone. A bank just is colder and not as fast to answer your questions or concerns.

Both require you to be using a Realtor so find one to help you with either.
