My name is Anthony Susi of Realty Executive. A large part of my Real Estate business focuses on representing homeowners during times of distressed economy and declining home values. Many of my clients are unfortunately facing issues such as, negative equity in their homes, threat of foreclosure, job loss or declining income, divorce, and mortgage rate resets. My team and I successfully work with those who cannot continue to afford their home and help them protect their personal credit by establishing a short sale in lieu of foreclosure.
I have an attorney as part of my team that specializes in short sales. Together, we work to meet your needs. Through careful and strategic planning, we can help you navigate through these troubled times.
An example of one of our recent success stories is a home I listed for sale on Monday; April 27th, 2009. We had multiple offers, and accepted one on within two days. By Thursday April 30th, we submitted the strongest offer to the bank for review. We received an approval for the short sale within five days, and we closed on June 12th 2009.
I am not saying that all short sales are this quick, but you won’t know until you explore the option.
If you are facing foreclosure, do not let financial pressures be the cause of personal anguish. For more information or a free consultation, do not hesitate to contact me at (617) 243-3883.
Short Sale Testimonial From Gregg and Kristin
My wife & I found ourselves in a very difficult spot in April 09. We had to sell our house very quickly (which was a challenge in & of itself ) & we were very “upside down” on our mortgage. We had researched our options and a “short sale” appeared to be our best bet, however we had heard ‘horror stories’ from various friends (several of them realtors) of that process being painful.
Some of the stories included: the bank supposedly being willing to settle for a given figure but then wanting to renegotiate &/or them taking forever to truly approve the short sale at which point the buyers back out due to the time lapse & even the banks looking for cash from the former owners after the fact (i.e. leveraging other assets that an lendee may have as to why the bank should not accept the lessened figure) Some of the above may simply be “stories” & not necessarily facts, but in any event this info made our challenge all the more daunting and again, our timeline was very short to accomplish this.
Enter Anthony Susi! Anthony came by the house and in 30 minutes had his game plan together for marketing the house as it needed to be listed and asking what he felt would be the perfect price to both move the house quickly as well as get the short sale approved. He also was aware of the potential pitfalls of a short sale scenario hence he partnered with a legal consultant to make sure this would be tied up nicely. By the time he left he was already working on posting our house & had his legal consultant fully informed & ready to engage as soon as we got an offer and… that offer came quickly!
Two days after meeting with us, Anthony put our house on the market. We had an offer for it 24 hours later! The short sale was approved by our bank 4 days after that!! In the span of 5 days all of our “challenges” were completely taken care of. As this process unfolded I ran this info by a long time friend of mine who is a very successful and long time realtor in Boston & his words were “I am shocked… I am absolutely shocked!! I have never seen a short sale get approved in 4 days - EVER & I haven’t seen a property sell in 24 hours in a long long time amidst this market” That pretty much summed up our thoughts as well!!
Anthony continued to partner with us every step of the way through closing. He kept traffic coming to the house just in case the initial offer did not fully pan out, he facilitated all the proper paperwork via Email & Faxing such that rarely did we have to take time out to deal with that & on the few times we did, he came to our house to do so. And as we approached the final week, Anthony PERSONALLY ensured that everything was fully in place from our home inspection to settling all fees with the town & otherwise. The closing date came & went as promised (which he also did all the leg work on – we did not have to attend) and he is keeping us in the loop with his legal partner to ensure the short sale sees the closure that it will (i.e. we pay do not pay a DIME on Fed. Taxes or otherwise)
In short: On May 1st my wife & I were looking at a potentially very messy ordeal & felt overwhelmed. On April 27th our house was on the market, on April 30th; we had an offer, on June 12th we closed without a SINGLE hitch along the way with the short sale or otherwise! ALL due to the outstanding strategy, execution, professionalism & (true) customer service by Anthony Susi. I would recommend him to anyone!!
THANK YOU ANTHONY!!!
