This is invaluable expertise to offer at a time when the area is ravaged by “distressed” homes in the foreclosure process.<br /><br />Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for, even though 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.<br /><br />In the Bergen County area, more than 800 homes are in danger of foreclosing. It is happening in all price ranges. Local experts say that even high-priced homes are not immune.<br /><br />“This CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with sellers and lenders on complicated short sales,” said Rojas. “It is so rewarding to be able to help sellers save their homes from foreclosure.”<br /><br />Alex Charfen, founder of the Distressed Property Institute in Boca Raton, Fla., said that Realtors® such as Johnny Rojas with the CDPE designation have valuable training in short sales that can offer the homeowner much better alternatives to foreclosure, which virtually destroys the credit rating. These experts also may better understand market conditions and can help sellers through the emotional experience, he said. <br /><br />The Distressed Property Institute opened in January 2008 and provides training on-site and online. The CDPE is the premier designation for Realtors helping homeowners in distress and handling short sales.<br /><br />“Our goal is to educate as many people as possible so we can help as many homeowners as possible,” Charfen said.<br /><br />For more information about CDPE designation or to find a certified distressed Realtor in your area, please call 1-877-636-2272.<br />Wed, 20 Feb 2013 13:31:31 ESTDESIGNATIONTRAINING DESIGNATIONEXPERT DISTRESSED SHORT SALEFORECLOSURECareer Sustaining Training That Keeps You on Tophttp://century21jrgoldteamrealty.com/news/index.cfm?fc=article&id=1206http://century21jrgoldteamrealty.com/news/index.cfm?fc=article&id=1206In today's constantly evolving industry, your skills and know-how are what set you apart.

CDPE agents are required to complete two days of intensive training and are held to a high standard of expertise, efficiency and ethics.<br /><br />For more information about the CDPE Designation, visit www.CDPE.com.<br /><br /> <br />Thu, 19 Jan 2012 14:27:39 ESTmortgage troubleMORTGAGE FORECLOSURE SHORT SALE HELPHOMEOWNER training CHANGE THE COURSE!

According to Lender Processing Services, over 6.32 million Americans missed a mortgage payment in April. Fortunately, there is a growing movement of specially trained real estate professionals that have earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation. As a CDPE, I can show homeowners their options, and provide them with information they need to know to avoid foreclosure. <br />I have prepared a report that shows homeowners what to expect if they've missed payments (or are about to).

The free, no-obligation can be found on the following website: <br /><br />WWW.TOPSHORTSALEEXPERT.COM <br />IT'S NOT TOO LATE! <br /><br />It is understandably difficult to start the process of getting help. Along with the reality of foreclosure comes the emotional struggle of being in a situation that most never thought they'd ever be in. It's important to know that this challenge can be overcome when homeowners have the right person on their side. In my experience, this helps alleviate the stress of not knowing what to do in a seemingly hopeless situation.

This is invaluable expertise to offer at a time when the area is ravaged by “distressed” homes in the foreclosure process.<br /><br />Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for, even though 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.<br /><br />In the Bergen County area, more than 800 homes are in danger of foreclosing. It is happening in all price ranges. Local experts say that even high-priced homes are not immune.<br /><br />“This CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with sellers and lenders on complicated short sales,” said Rojas. “It is so rewarding to be able to help sellers save their homes from foreclosure.”<br /><br />Alex Charfen, founder of the Distressed Property Institute in Boca Raton, Fla., said that Realtors® such as Johnny Rojas with the CDPE designation have valuable training in short sales that can offer the homeowner much better alternatives to foreclosure, which virtually destroys the credit rating. These experts also may better understand market conditions and can help sellers through the emotional experience, he said. <br /><br />The Distressed Property Institute opened in January 2008 and provides training on-site and online. The CDPE is the premier designation for Realtors helping homeowners in distress and handling short sales.<br /><br />“Our goal is to educate as many people as possible so we can help as many homeowners as possible,” Charfen said.<br /><br />For more information about CDPE designation or to find a certified distressed Realtor in your area, please call 1-877-636-2272.<br />Fri, 25 Feb 2011 15:05:48 ESTSpecial DesignationsEXPERT TRAINING SHORT SALE FORECLOSURECENTURY 21 JR Gold Team Realty Raises Over $4,500 in the “Go the Distance for Autism” Bike Eventhttp://century21jrgoldteamrealty.com/news/index.cfm?fc=article&id=630http://century21jrgoldteamrealty.com/news/index.cfm?fc=article&id=630Garfield, New Jersey (Grassroots Newswire) 06/04/2010 -- Local real estate broker Johnny Rojas led a team of agents, supporters, family and friends in the “Go the Distance for Autism” bike riding fundraiser.

However, as the market begins to climb out of one of the most challenging economic downturns in recent history, the current state of the real estate market may be in question in many peoples’ minds. Is it the right time to make a move?<br />In April, two giants in the real estate market announced interesting survey results. Fannie Mae found that two-thirds of Americans (65 percent) are still bullish on homeownership, preferring to own a home despite the challenging economic environment and the housing downturn. Additional research conducted by Century 21 Real Estate LLC provides further insight.<br />CENTURY 21® First-Time Home Buyers and Sellers survey captured and compared the opinions of prospective home buyers and sellers who either purchased or sold their first home within the past year or are planning to buy or sell their first home within the next year. The majority of survey respondents had moved or intended to move more than 10 miles but less than 50 miles from their previous location, indicating current market conditions may be a catalyst for buying or selling homes, as opposed to a desire to dramatically change geographic location or relocate for a job.<br />“Buying a home, whether it’s your first or subsequent purchase, is the single greatest financial decision that most people will make in their lifetime,” counsels Rick Davidson, president and chief executive officer, Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “And, our research indicates that today’s market presents a generational opportunity for home buyers and current home owners looking to leverage their market position.”<br />Current Market Conditions<br />More than 80 percent of first-time home buyers and sellers feel the current housing market is more affordable today than this time last year. This is despite the fact that 40 percent of all respondents are more worried about the economy now compared to this time last year. Federal tax credits and solid mortgage rates have had a positive impact on driving people to take action.<br /><br />Reestablishing Balance<br />A full market recovery takes time and current conditions continue to favor buyers. While buyers are excited about the opportunities in the current market, sellers note their main concern is losing money on the sale of their home and receiving offers near their asking price.<br />When will the balance between housing need and inventory return? The real estate industry typically considers six months of inventory to represent a balanced market. According to the National Association of REALTORS® the number of homes for sale currently represents approximately eight months of inventory and has decreased 21.7 percent below the record of 4.58 million homes for sale in July 2008*. First-time home buyers anticipate home prices will soon begin to rise and in fact, about half of first-time buyers (48 percent) expect an increase by this time next year, thereby reestablishing better market equilibrium.<br />Let an Expert Help Guide You<br />Whether you are considering buying or selling a home, 60 percent of first-time home buyers do not feel they have a good handle on the real estate process. Given the complexity and opportunity of today’s real estate market, 85 percent of both first-time buyers and sellers feel that using a real estate professional is important. Allow an experienced professional to help guide you to the home that is right for you, at a price you can afford. <br />The market is recovering and providing a powerful opportunity to act. Take advantage of positive price points and low interest rates today.<br />For additional information about market conditions in Garfield, contact Johnny Rojas at (973) 772-9404 or jrojas@njrealestate.com.<br /><br />*National Association of Realtors Existing Home Sales Report, March 2010<br />Methodology – Century 21 Real Estate LLC First Time Home Buyers and Sellers Survey<br />MarketTools, Inc. conducted a quantitative survey on behalf of Century 21 Real Estate LLC with 708 prospective home buyers and sellers who either purchased or sold their first home within the past year or are planning to buy or sell their first home within the next year.
