Short Sales

Fill out the form below to get a free short sale consultation from The Gover Brothers.

In our local real estate market, over half the available homes are Chula Vista short sales. Many homeowners find themselves “underwater” or “upside down”, which means the balance of the mortgage is higher than the current market value of the home. People who find themselves in this unfortunate situation often decide to do a short sale.

If you are considering a short sale for your home, it’s important to choose an agent that is experienced in dealing with the banks. As a top producing real estate team in the South Bay area, the Gover Brothers communicate with lenders on a daily basis and understand how to negotiate your short sale. The Gover Brothers have successfully gotten many banks to approve Chula Vista short sales and forgive hundred’s of thousands of dollars in mortgage debt for their clients.

While a short might sale sound like an attractive solution, it’s not the best answer for everyone. Call the Chula Vista short sale experts with the Gover Brothers to determine if a short sale could be an option for you. The Gover Brothers have a proven track record, and even work with an appointed short sale negotiator who focuses exclusively on Chula Vista short sales. In addition to contacting the Gover Brothers, it’s imperative that you consult with a CPA or a tax attorney to discuss the legal ramifications associated with short sales.

Team Ratcliffe - McMillin Realty

Being first time home buyers, we had very little knowledge of almost EVERYTHING related to home ownership. Fortunately, we found Joe and Team Ratcliffe, with its fearless and wonderful leader, Pam Ratcliffe. Having been to several open houses and meeting several Realtors, I can truly say that when meeting Joe, you instantly "read" what kind of agent he is. To echo what was already been said, he is all of those things. Additionally, he is persistent and patient, qualities that cannot be found in most. Having busy lives, our schedule was not always consistent. However, Joe and his team were always there for each other, and we always saw the home we wanted, when we wanted.

Joe and Pam are a truly wonderful team. If you are looking for an honest, professional and experienced team of Realtors, look no further. I highly recommend Team Ratcliffe! Thanks Joe and Pam! ----Larry A, 3/22/2010

My short sale experience was made so much easier by Joe; through thick and thin, he was willing to stick it out to get the deal done. He was a lot patient than I was and worked hard to get the negotiations done with the banks. There are a lot of realtors out there but Joe was the first one who I felt was exceptional. ---- Aye T, 5/19/2012

I had the pleasure of working with Matt Gover when purchasing my condo. This required an in depth knowledge of market values and the complex process of funding. Matt took the time to focus on the right questions which helped my wife and I establish what we were looking for. We are very detailed, and at the time there wasn't much inventory on the market that met our criteria.

However when the property that we bought first went to market,Matt was "Johnny on the Spot". He contacted us immediately and got us inside the condo that very same day.

This was critical as it was a bank owned property and the seller received several subsequent offers from other potential buyers. Matt was able to get our offer accepted in the face of competition, and still managed to negotiate a great price.

Once in escrow, we met his brother Joe and Pam Ratcliffe.I can emphasize that we were in good hands the entire time and there was always someone accessible to answer our questions.I highly recommend Matt Gover and Team Ratcliffe and definitely plan to use them again! ---- Rob H, 12/7/2011
