Great Service | Competitive Fees | Real People
The Firm offers the following, and related, services:
Real Estate Purchases: We have represented many thousands of residential and commercial Buyers. The Firm represents Buyers in all stages of the process. We are happy to become involved early in the process. We are available to answer you questions and concerns as you go through the purchasing process. We are available to help draft your purchase contract and/or to review contracts prepared by others. We are available throughout the process to anticipate and answer all your questions and concerns. We are part of your team. We show our commitment to your satisfaction at every stage of the purchasing and closing process.
Real Estate Sales: We have represented many thousands of Sellers in the sale of their home or their business real estate. Our services offered to Sellers are similar to those offered to Buyers (see paragraph above).
Short Sales: A “short sale” is the negotiated sale of residential real estate for less than full consideration paid to the mortgage holders and/or lienholders. Over the last 15 years we have been involved in and closed more than 600 short sales. Attorney Walsh has provided mini-seminars to hundreds of Realtors advising them how to list, sell, and advise their clients in a short sale transaction. A short sale is a time-consuming, detail orientated process. We are happy to become involved in the short sale process early and deeply. We pride ourselves on our ability to work with short sale lenders and lienholders, Realtors, Buyers and Buyer’s attorney in advancing such transaction to successful closings. A short sale can avoid a Foreclosure or forced Bankruptcy. It is an option to be considered, however, only with experienced counsel as there are many traps for the unwary.
Forestalling Foreclosure/Loan Work-outs: The Firm has great experience in working with opposing counsel and lenders in reinstating mortgage loans in default. Such reinstatement takes many forms including lump sum payment bringing the loan current, partial payment plus agreement to repay deficiency over time, or, entire deficiency being added at end of loan term.
In response to the growing number of mortgage defaults and resulting foreclosures, the State and Federal Government have each promulgated legislation designed to force mediation and/or allow for reinstatement, piggyback financing, or refinancing after market value adjustments. Although these programs are constantly changing, the Firm is well versed in the new workout opportunities currently available and we are working to learn and explore the complexities of such new legislation and, specifically, its implementation.
The purchase and sale of residential real estate is best accomplished by utilizing referrals from those you trust. We are happy to have earned that trust from thousands of clients, and from Realtors, Lenders and other real estate professionals. We can refer you to Realtors, Lenders, Appraisers, Home Inspection Specialists, Independent Insurance Agents, Handymen, and the like. Of course, you need to interview and check out anyone that you work with to establish your own comfort and compatibility level. Again, feel free to call.
