In 2011, C.A.R. made short sales and distressed properties one of its top priorities. As a result, C.A.R. launched ShortSalesCalifornia.org. The site not only provides up-to-date information about changes to lenders' policies, but also serves as a resource for REALTORS® and consumers involved in these challenging transactions.
On the site, visitors will find short sale and distressed properties news, foreclosure timelines, legal Q&As, a short-sale glossary, a discussion forum where REALTORS® can ask questions of other agents, and much more.
Additionally, consumers can find a REALTOR® to assist with their short-sale transaction, learn what to expect as a buyer or seller of a short-sale property, and find out whether they qualify for government programs to keep their home.
