Certified Distressed Property Expert

Curtis has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales. This is invaluable expertise to offer at a time when the area is ravaged by "distressed" homes in the foreclosure process.Short sales allow the cash-strapped seller to repay the mortgage at the price the home sells for, even though it is lower then what is owed on the property. With plummeting property values, this can save many people from foreclosure and even bankruptcy.

More and more lenders are willing to consider short sales because the are much less costly than foreclosures. Over 10% of home owners with mortgages today are not making their payments. That translates to over 1 out of 10 home owners being in the first stage of what will lead to foreclosure (default). It is happening in all price ranges. Even high priced homes are not immune.

This designation has been very rewarding, helping sellers save their homes from foreclosure. With the CDPE designation, Curt can offer the home owner much better alternatives to foreclosure, which virtually destroys the credit rating.

A CDPE expert better understands the market conditions and can help the sellers through the emotional experience.
