Explanation of Short Sales

Are you a Seller in Roswell GA behind on your mortgage now or potentially in the near future and need pre-foreclosure help? If so, a short sale in Roswell aka pre-foreclosure may be your best option to avoid foreclosure. Short Sales are when the mortgage holder accepts to take a lower payoff than what is owed on your current loan. In many cases, you may be eligible to sell your home "short" of what you owe and not have to come out of pocket at time of closing. Also, a short sale is typically better on your credit than a foreclosure. For example, it takes approximately 5-7 years before you may be eligible for a loan after a foreclosure but only about 2 years with a short sale. For this reason alone, many homeowners have opted to go the short sale route in lieu of foreclosure.

During the recession of 2009, Jonathan Lee, Owner of Team Lee Homes, had a heart for homeowners that were in true hardship. He quickly became the area expert in helping sellers get their short sales approved 97% of the time.  As Jonathan honestly says, "short sales can be very long and taxing to both the sellers and buyers. I wanted to come up with a way to streamline the short sale process and get a higher short sale approval rate in the fastest time possible. Our short sale approval rates are much higher than agents that do not have short sale experience or lack the systems we do. We have a dedicated team to handle the pile of paperwork required by your bank and are in constant communication with your bank and all parties."

Testimonials from our past clients:

"When a career opportunity caused our family to move, our only option was to short sale our home.  It was a scary feeling and from everything I read I was expecting a nightmare.  Jonathan literally took the whole burden on his shoulders and completed the entire transaction with very little work on our part.   He made the whole process so easy and efficient.  Jonathan eliminated so much stress from our lives through his hard work and experience.  I would recommend Jonathan to ANYONE in a similar position to ours." 

  Deric Gwinn-GA Seller


Working with Jonathan Lee was an extremely positive experience and a testament to tenacity.  He is a true professional and one of the best Realtors I have ever met.  Jonathan never quit on me or the short sale process. Personally I gave up about a half dozen times because the amount owed seemed impossible to overcome.  But Jonathan would always pick me back up and push forward to the finish. I cannot thank him enough for pulling me through one of the most devastating and depressing financial times of my life.  If you are looking for someone who won't take no for an answer and who will never quit, then Jonathan Lee should be your Realtor.  


Paul C. Holcomb, P.E.-GA Seller

 "We would like to thank you for your very professional demeanor during the process of selling our home via the HAFA short sale program that Fred and I just successfully completed. You were truly heaven sent and I don't believe any other agent could've pulled it off.  Thank you so much and God Bless you from the bottom of our souls."

Fred, Anita, Amelia, Kelli, and Frederick II Evans
