Local Agent Provides Resource on Foreclosure Alternatives, Short Sales

For homeowners struggling with mortgage payments, website explains differences between foreclosure and short sales.

Eureka, CA – 15 October 2010 – Local CDPE-designated agent, Dean Kessler of The Kessler Team, has released an informational report comparing the consequences of a short sale and foreclosure.

The report can be found at www.EurekaForeclosureHelp.com and provides a thorough explanation of how a short sale may potentially improve a homeowner’s future financial stability.

“Considering how damaging foreclosure can be for the homeowner and the surrounding community, it is important that everyone knows all of the alternatives available,” Kessler said. “This report is the latest addition to my website, which gives distressed homeowners a way to inform themselves on their best options.”

Currently, one in seven mortgages is in some stage of delinquency. Once a mortgage payment has been missed, the lender has the ability to begin the foreclosure process. A short sale can potentially minimize the damage to one’s future loan eligibility, credit score, employment, security clearance and more.

“We often see homeowners enter the foreclosure process without any visible means of professional guidance,” Kessler said. “My hope is to inform the Eureka area community that there are legal, dignified alternatives to foreclosure.”
