Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation from Charfen Institute arms local real estate agent with tools, processes and education to help distressed homeowners in Southeast Florida!
Linda Martignetti, Broker/Owner and CDPE of Crossroads Realty Team announced today that she is now among an elite group of over 40,000 national CDPE trained professionals helping local homeowners avoid foreclosure via short sales.
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. “As a Certified Distressed Property Expert “(CDPE), Linda says, “it is my mission to help homeowners avoid foreclosure and get their lives back on a positive path. If you, or someone you know, is faced with an unmanageable mortgage, please know that I am here to help. There are other options to save your credit by working with me and your mortgage company on a short sale.”
