In a short sale transaction, the lien holder accepts the selling price of the home, even if that amount is less than (“short” of) the borrower’s mortgage balance. This option is less harmful to a homeowner’s credit score, does not challenge employment or security clearance, and allows the seller to be eligible for Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac backed loans sooner than a foreclosure.
The CDPE designation, offered by the Charfen Institute, is the fastest-growing independent designation in real estate industry history. Christine Jeffers has earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert designation, which involves 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 Christine will help benefit the Alameda and Contra Costa County area residents and communities.
“Our goal is to help as many homeowners as possible, by educating as many real estate professionals as possible,” Charfen said. “Christine Jeffers has demonstrated a commitment to struggling homeowners, a commitment that can provide much-needed stabilization to the community.”
The growth of the CDPE Designation has been assisted by endorsement or support of major real estate market influencers RE/MAX, LLC, Century 21 Real Estate LLC, Keller Williams Realty Inc, Realogy Franchise Group, RealtyTrac, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, Fannie Mae, and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).
