"Homeowner's Block: The Hardship Letter"      Perhaps the most dreaded thing to what a homeowner needs to provide us when we help them with a short sale. . is writing the "Hardship Letter" I have seen all kinds. .long ones, short ones. .even in different languages that we had to translate verbatim with the help of others.. .but this one took the cake It was hand written and it took me several minutes to figure it that was written in English. . at least that was what I thought. Since I knew exactly what my client's hardship was, I decided to send it to the lender as it was . .I always believe a hand written hardship letter is more personal than a type out impersonal letter in a computer.

Scary Decision I get to talk almost in a daily basis to homeowners looking at the prospect of losing their own homes. What is interesting is that most of them are only concerned of one thing  "THE UNKNOWN" I learned very quickly early on, people want to see what is ahead and they are afraid of the dark and uncertainty. One of the most recent short sales presentation I gave to a mother of four children solidified this point for me. As soon as I told her that my services does not end when we sell her house but it ends when we find her a suitable property for her family at no cost. . . and I added that we gladly take the responsibility to TIME EVERYTHING. .so she does not have to worry if she should start packing next week or next month. . We tell our clients we are not completed in doing...
