What a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) Offers

by The Pilgrim Team

What can Jerry Pilgrim, a CDPEAdvanced member, offer to homeowners in distress?

“I am a member of the CDPEAdvanced program. You may have heard of CDPEs or Certified

Distressed Property Experts before. We are agents who have committed to understanding and

providing Foreclosure avoidance solutions to homeowners facing financial hardship.

Being a real estate agent today means something different than perhaps a few years ago.

Today, around 15 percent of Home Loans are delinquent, or not being paid. That means one in six

homeowners you meet may be experiencing the same challenges you are. So the first thing you

should know is that you’re not alone, and that there are millions of others across the country

in your situation.

As a CDPEAdvanced member, I’m part of the charge to turn this crisis around by immersing

myself in the solutions available to distressed homeowners. And my goal is to bring the best

option to each individual homeowner.

CDPEAdvanced gives me access to regular industry updates from the Distressed Property

Institute, a company created by real estate leaders with the specific purpose of pulling as many

homeowners out of distress as possible.

I also have access to a network of top agents nationwide who are also dealing with distressed

properties. This is a powerful tool. It lets me find out what is happening on the front lines, what

banks and buyers are looking for, which foreclosure avoidance tactics are working and which

ones aren’t.

Between the market analysis and the network of agent communication, I can offer you the

most current, relevant solutions.

This housing market has become such a moving target that anyone who isn’t taking extra steps

to keep up will simply get left behind. My clients need to know all the options available to them,

and that is what I can deliver. This is why I am a CDPEAdvanced member.”

Strategic Foreclosures?

by The Pilgrim Team

Recently there has been some talk about "strategic foreclosures". Unfortunately there have been some individuals promoting to people who are in financial distress and don't know where to turn when they have fallen behind in their Home Financing payments. They have taken the stand that it is O.K. to just walk away and never look behind them for the consequences that come with such a move.

Just last week Good Morning America had a special about walking away form your commitment. The analogy they used was that if it is good enough for corporate America to do so, it is O.K. for the average homeowner too. It was totally irresponsible reporting and they should be taken to task to promote such a terrible injustice to the public. They did not mention what consequences there are to individuals who actually must work and maintain households, credit ratings and personal reputations if they allow a Foreclosure to happen. Obviously they did not realize or even care that with that type of reporting people could be jeopardizing their financial futures including holding on to the job they currently have or a job in the future. Corporations don't have to think about those things as it not part of the business world. So yes, corporations do that sometimes but with different consequences.

Please don't consider a Strategic Foreclosure as you might not be happy what you may end up with. Call me today for a confidential interview and we can set the record straight and get you on the right financial path.
