If a purchase or sale is a business transaction, the sooner your business is going to benefit.


Being that foreclosure has been a major issue in recent years, we have helped homeowners keep their homes by negotiating with their lenders. A deed in lieu of foreclosure and loan modification are two creative tactics that your Southern Minnesota real estate lawyer can use. If neither one of these will work, then a short sale can keep the foreclosure from showing up on your credit report. This means selling the home for less than what is owed on the loan, but the bank has to agree and certain qualifications must be met. This helps the borrower avoid foreclosure and the bank is able to preserve some of its lending power and avoid having another foreclosure property in its inventory.
