For those buyers who enter into a contract to purchase such a home, it could be a rude awakening to find out that the deal, not disclosed as a short sale at the outset (because the numbers provided to the agent by the seller showed seller receiving net proceeds) is now turning out to be a short sale. It is anticipated that litigation from buyers based on failure to provide full disclosure on financial issues will increase as the potential for short sales increase. Read article

  • "My name is Emilio. When I was buying my property, I hired Mr William J Reinhardt Jr as my Real Estate Attorney, it was one of the best decision I ever made because he did everything in his power to make sure my purchase was successful. For example, The utilities bills left over by the person who owned the property before me. I said thank you to Bill for not allow me to pay these costly bills." - 5.0 stars | Posted by Emilio Bien Aime | October 1, 2019
