South Florida and Massachusetts Short Sale Attorney


From 2002 through 2005, the South Florida and Boston real estate industry went through one of the biggest booms in American history. However, after hurricanes Katrina and Wilma, the South Florida economy and real estate market began to fall.  Coupled with the banking / lending industry going into a free-fall state from 2007 until recently, Florida and Massachusetts' real estate market continued its downward trend. Today, the nation’s economy has continued its rapid decline into one of the worst recessions in sixty (60) years and despite some turnaround in the marketplace, many property owners still cannot afford their homes anymore.  At the Law Offices of Ira Evan Weintraub, P.A., we are of the belief that our real estate owner and investors clients should be presented with and evaluate all of their possible alternatives instead of walking away and losing their home to foreclosure.  To that effect, a short sale may offer the best alternative to a distressed home owner. 


In some situations, a short sale offers a possible alternative to and solution to losing the property to foreclosure.  Simply, a short sale is the sale of a property for less than the amount owed to the bank.  However, a short sale is not without its share of possible negative effects, including damage to your credit score, having to pay income taxes, or possibly being saddled with a deficiency judgment.  At the Law Offices of Ira Evan Weintraub, P.A., we strategically work and negotiate with lenders to avoid or minimize any negative effects in short sales.
