Spotlight on Short Sales - The Harcourts Community Commitment:

Harcourts NV1 has been a committed community partner since its founding in 2011.  As a leader in the real estate industry, some of its transactions have been guiding clients through the often-complex short sale process, helping Northern Nevadans avoid foreclosure.  Harcourts will always be dedicated to serving the Reno community and being fully transparent, as highlighted by this week’s article in the Reno Gazette-Journal.  Harcourts appreciates RGJ spotlighting the real estate community and asking important questions, as Northern Nevadans cannot be too informed about the complexities of dealing with distressed home sales.  Harcourts has been a leader in this arena and will continue to be a resource for those in need of guidance in the short sale process or finding other alternatives to avoid foreclosure.

Harcourts is committed to representing their clients’ best interests including, in some cases, finding investors willing to wait out the long short sale process.  Before entering into any sales agreement, Harcourts and its agents take the time to educate sellers and buyers about the difficulty that short sales may present.  This includes the fact that the lender must approve all short sales, thereby setting market value, by hiring an independent Broker Price Opinion from a local professional.  The process can often take months – time that many homebuyers cannot afford.  This is where investors can often help – willing to wait months or years for sales to go through or stepping in days before a foreclosure sale and helping sellers avoid being foreclosed upon by the bank. In any type of transaction, Harcourts always provides their sellers and buyers with full disclosure and documentation about their individual transactions.  Ultimately, the goal is to help local families find the best path for them to avoid foreclosure.

As owner Steve O’Brien stated, “As long-standing members of the community – both personally and professionally, we at Harcourts NV1 are dedicated to helping Northern Nevadans.  We want to see the region continue to thrive by rebuilding the housing market and helping individual families in need of a solution for their specific situation.”
