NAR's Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR®) certification focuses on both the buyer and seller sides of distressed property transactions. 

For many real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures represent the new “traditional” real estate transaction. Knowing how to maneuver the complexities of short sales as well as how to identify the distinct real estate opportunities in foreclosure are not merely good skills to have in today’s market—they are critical. This course helps students evaluate all available options for distressed homeowners and identify the components of an effective short-sale package. This course looks at how real estate professionals can counsel buyer-clients in the purchase of foreclosure properties. And as a practical resource, this course shows students how consumers can avoid foreclosure in the future.

Designed for real estate professionals at all experience levels, this course gives you a framework for understanding how to:
• Direct distressed sellers to finance, tax & legal professionals
• Qualify sellers for short sales
• Develop a short sale package
• Negotiate with lenders
• Tap into buyer demand
