Equity Real Estate Academy

Since we're so invested in helping our partners grow, we've established both as a RI & MA Real Estate School. We hold classes here in our office in Providence, at various venues or we'll come to you!  It's a great place for real estate agents to come for continuing education, but it's also a way for us to get to know one another. Check back with us often to see what we've got coming up

RE78R13   Short Sales  We all thought that we saw the last of the short sales 10 years ago.  However, today short sale looks very different from that of the early 2010’s.  Today short sale could be just $5000 but nonetheless an impediment to closing.  Learn where they processes today on dealing with short sales, some solutions and the inevitability of foreclosure if the short sale does not go through.  Mike will walk you through this process which is as timely as any other.
