Hansen earns CDPE designation
CROSSLAKE - Judy Hansen, Up North Properties Marketing Team with Edina Realty in Crosslake, recently earned the Certified Distressed Property Expert designation.
The training prepares her to work with property owners faced with a "short sale," which occurs when the seller must sell their home at a price less than the existing mortgage dollar amount.
In an e-mail release, Hansen said short sales require careful attention to detail and a willingness to invest the time to work with the seller, the lender and a buyer. She also said short sales are complicated transactions and constant communication with the lender is crucial.
In the Brainerd lakes area, Hansen said she is seeing more and more properties reaching the foreclosure stage and that short sales may provide a viable alternative.
