Short Sale Assistance

With the economy and real estate market’s struggles as of late, many people have seen their home values drop – to the point that they owe more on the home than it is worth. This has put many in Seattle, Tacoma, and the Puget Sound area is a difficult situation. While some may feel chained to their homes by insurmountable debt, others have no choice but to endure the financially damaging process of foreclosure, a process that wreaks havoc on their credit scores. At Dickson Frohlich, we help our clients with a third option known as a short sale. By negotiating between the lender and homeowner, an agreement can be reached that allows a sale to a prospective buyer at a value below the amount owed.

If you think you may benefit from a short sale on your property or if you have another legal issue, feel free to call for a phone FREE consultation.

Short Sale Assistance Fees – How much does it cost?

To assist you with a short sale, we typically charge you the equivalent of one month’s mortgage cost. However, we can often get our legal fees paid by your lender when the sale is completed so the fees can be reimbursed back to you!

- Jeremy H.

I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate this firm! These guys helped me through one of the most challenging legal situations I’ve faced in my life. Their skill and expertise literally saved my business. I’ve dealt with other counsel in the past but the Dickson firm was by far the most competent and tactful counsel I’ve ever received. I would recommend this group to anyone!
