Well Hello everyone and welcome to Sold By Short Sale I am Matt Fetick and we are Philadelphia’s leading short sale team. I am a licensed realtor in the Philadelphia area and my team and I specialize in short sales. I update my blog frequently to provide valuable information to homeowners in the surrounding communities about their options for avoiding foreclosure.

For our topic of discussion today I wanted to bring some attention to the short sale and loan modification scams occurring in the Philadelphia area. I have talked to far too many people that have fallen victim to companies that charge upfront fees. There is absolutely no reason to pay any upfront fees to complete your short sale. The only exception is if your property is selling for a very small amount in the fifty to sixty thousand dollar range. When you hire a short sale agent their paycheck should always be coming from the lender and certainly not out of your pocket. These scam companies are looking for a quick pay day and often reach out to homeowners through letters and phone calls. Anytime a homeowner is considering a short sale the last thing they need is out of pocket expenses that just aren’t necessary. Our team of short sale specialists can help get you out from under your distressed property and won’t ask for a dime. If you have any questions or would like to set up a free consultation please visit my website or contact me today. Thank you for tuning in to Philadelphia’s leading short sale specialist and have a wonderful day.
