Cal Griffin Earns NAR Short Sales and Foreclosure Certification
Buyers and Sellers Benefit from REALTOR® Expertise in Distressed Sales
Edisto Beach, SC - Cal Griffin with The Edisto Beach Company has earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification. The National Association of REALTORS® offers the SFR certification to REALTORS®
who want to help both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated
transactions, as demand for professional expertise with distressed
According to a recent NAR survey, nearly one-third of all existing
homes sold recently were either short sales or foreclosures. For many
real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new
"traditional" transaction. REALTORS®
who have earned the SFR certification know how to help sellers maneuver
the complexities of short sales as well as help buyers pursue short
sale and foreclosure opportunities.
"As leading advocates for homeownership, REALTORS®
believe that any family that loses its home to foreclosure is one
family too many, but unfortunately, there are situations in which
people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or a
short sale results," said 2009 NAR President Charles McMillan, a broker
with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Dallas-Fort Worth.
"Foreclosures and short sales can offer opportunities for home buyers
and benefit the larger community, as well, but it's extremely important
to have the help of a real estate professional like a REALTOR® who has earned the SFR certification for these kinds of purchases."
The certification program includes training on how to qualify
sellers for short sales, negotiate with lenders, protect buyers, and
limit risk, and provides resources to help REALTORS® stay
current on national and state-specific information as the market for
these distressed properties evolves. To earn the SFR certification,
REALTORSÒ are required to take one core course and three Webinars. For more information about the SFR certification, visit www.REALTORSFR.org or call 1-877-510-7855.
