Bowman earns national certification

Posted


Ernie Bowman, with Century 21 1st Choice Realtors, has earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification.The National Association of Realtors offers the SFR certification to Realtors who want to help both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for professional expertise with distressed sales grows.


"As leading advocates for homeownership, Realtors® care as much about keeping families in their homes as they do about helping them find the home of their dreams, but unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or a short sale results," said NAR President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, Fa. "Foreclosures and short sales can offer opportunities for home buyers and benefit the larger community, as well, but it's extremely important to have the help of a real estate professional like a Realtors who has earned the SFR certification for these kinds of purchases."

The ce1tification program includes training on how to qualify sellers for short sales, negotiate with lenders, protect buyers, and limit risk, and provides resources to help Realtors stay current on national and state-specific information as the market for these distressed properties evolves.
