Raleigh, NC, December 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Don Walston, founder and executive chairman of Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston (http://www.hpw.com), a full-service real estate firm, has announced the release of a podcast outlining issues surrounding short sales and foreclosures and how its SAFAssist program can provide assistance to homeowners facing various financial predicaments. In the podcast, Roger Bernholz, vice president and general counsel for the firm, discusses various factors that have resulted in the recent explosion of short sales and foreclosures, common misconceptions that surround these situations and the ways neighborhoods affected by many short sales and foreclosures can be brought back into good standing. Additionally, Bernholz outlines the advantages Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston’s SAFAssist program offers to homeowners who need to move, but due to declining home values, cannot afford to do so, as well as homeowners who are at risk of foreclosure. The podcast is available for download at http://bit.ly/TDWHM8.
“Not only are there individual homes facing foreclosure in the Triangle, but there are entire neighborhoods that are suffering,” said Bernholz. “The SAFAssist program helps these neighborhoods by equipping individual homeowners with the tools to avoid foreclosure through short sales—a far less damaging option than foreclosures that can help prevent further damage to troubled neighborhoods as well as homeowners’ financial standing.”
