I am now a Certified HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) Short Sale Specialist!
On Monday of this week, I attended a day-long training at the Sacramento Association of Realtors to augment my existing knowledge of the HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) Short Sale Program. Overall, it was an informative course. Much of it was review of the history of HAFA, the procedural steps of the program, and a review of the timeframes and paperwork involved. So, I took the tests today, and I am officially a "Certified HAFA Specialist." I have successfully closed so many short sales in our Sacramento-area real estate market, I feel like having this certification is a bit of a formality, but perhaps it will provide my short sale sellers an additional level of assurance that I actually know what I am doing (aside from my numerous short sale seller client references, good track record, the mentoring I have given other agents, etc)!
