Keller Williams Las Vegas Real Estate Agent Team, Closes An EMC Short Sale In Nevada


The Ballen Group, Las Vegas short Sale Specialists of Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas closes another EMC Short Sale for a homeowner in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Las Vegas, NV – December 23, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The Ballen Group, Leading short sale agents in Las Vegas at Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas, has solved another short sale problem for a Nevada Homeowner facing foreclosure. The Ballen Group, specializing in Las Vegas Short Sales, Henderson Short Sales, and North Las Vegas Short Sales, has successfully negotiated and closed a short sale transaction where a lender (Bank of America) accepted a “short” amount on Las Vegas Real Estate, saving the sellers from being another Nevada Foreclosure statistic.

The property on COOL CREEK in the Spring Valley area of Las Vegas closed on this week. Start to finish, this short sale took about 6 months to close which is the average time frame we see in Nevada for Short Sales. The right to pursue deficiency on the banks behalf was waived. Once approval was obtained, the transaction was closed in just over two weeks. The Buyer paid $99,000 Cash which was the list price of the property.

The sellers were in default and the homeowner was facing Foreclosure in Nevada. After many negotiations with the bank with no solutions, the home owners contacted The Ballen Group to negotiate a Las Vegas short sale on their behalf. The process was not easy, but with the strong negotiating powers, problem solving and a comprehensive marketing process, Ballen achieved the difficult approval to close the home. As with all Las Vegas short sale approvals, there must be a ready & willing buyer to purchase the home at what the bank considers “fair market value” based on their appraisers values. The seller opted to short sale their home rather than allow a Las Vegas Foreclosure in hopes of having a better credit score and the ability to purchase Las Vegas Real Estate again in approximately 2 years.

The Ballen Group, a top team of Las Vegas Short Sale Specialists under the brokerage Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas has put together a comprehensive Las Vegas Short sale system for sellers. They call it The Ballen Method to Short Sales. Homeowners who are facing Las Vegas foreclosure can request a Las Vegas Short Sale Agent, Henderson Short Sale Agent, or North Las Vegas Short Sale Specialist to consult with them about their needs. In addition, The Ballen Group has created a custom hardship package allowing the homeowner to complete the documents required by the bank to ease the process. Although The Ballen Group never encourages a Las Vegas Short Sale, many homeowners in Las Vegas and surrounding areas are facing true hardships that force them to attempt a Short Sale rather than face Las Vegas Foreclosure.

The Ballen Group uses a 3 question factor to consider if a Short Sale is right for the specific homeowner. These are 1. The homeowner is no longer able to make mortgage payments or have already missed a payment due to financial hardship. The homeowners wants to avoid foreclosure. The value of the home is less than what is owed on the mortgage.
