How We Can Help You
We can help you close successfully and stress free on the purchase or sale of your home. We help you negotiate to get the best benefits without breaking the deal. With more than 30 years of experience we excel at navigating unusual complications to close the sale on your home!
Buying a property at a foreclosure auction can be mutually beneficial to the investor and the former homeowner! We match real estate investors with potential properties and homeowners – the investor wins an income property at a great discount and the homeowner can stay in their home after all else has failed with the potential to purchase in the future!
A loan modification denial doesn’t mean you don’t qualify. Our financial analysis and NPV Test can help you determine what steps to take to be approved for a loan modification. From the loan modification application, through the Trial Payment Plan, to confirmation of your Permanent Modification, we work for you. Call today to schedule your free consultation.
You have rights and defenses in your foreclosure. You can save your home from foreclosure auction. Foreclosure defense can prevent a foreclosure sale and facilitate the approval of a loan modification, real estate sale, or other foreclosure alternative.
