Jack Lara, Earns Real Estate, Short Sale Designation to Help Homeowners in Danger of Foreclosure

Pensacola, Florida – Jack Lara of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Main Street Properties in Pensacola has the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) designation, having completed refresher training in foreclosure avoidance, with a particular emphasis on short sales. At a time when millions of homeowners are struggling with the possibility of foreclosure, the skills and education amassed by Mr. Lara will help benefit Pensacola-area residents and communities.

Short sales allow the distressed homeowner to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for, even if it is lower than what is owed on the property. This can save many people from foreclosure and even bankruptcy. More and more lenders are willing to consider short sales because they are much less costly than foreclosures.

“The CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with homeowners and lenders on complicated short sales,” said Mr. Lara. 

“It is so rewarding to be able to help families save their homes from foreclosure.”

Tony Martinez, author of the CDPE course and CEO of Tony Martinez Events, LLC, in Davie Florida, said that agents such as Jack Lara with the CDPE Designation have valuable perspective on the market, and training in short sales that can offer homeowners real alternatives to foreclosure, which can be devastating to credit ratings.

“These experts better understand market conditions than the average agent and can help sellers through the complications of foreclosure avoidance…”
