Do-it-yourself homeowners want to save money and often enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done – both good financial and personal goals to strive towards. But there’s a big difference between the skills involved in fixing your home versus what is necessary to sell it. Smart homeowners know that working with a professional can pay off when the time comes to sell.

Distressed properties are those with owners whose mortgages are higher than the value of the house, commonly referred to as “short sales” or homes that have actually been foreclosed upon. While these properties may not always be pretty, they could be just right for the right buyer.
