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

Miracle workers, that about sums it up. Joe and Pam worked endlessly to sell my home as a short sale in Eastlake. They made the impossible (working with Green Tree) possible. They dedicated countless hours month after month on this sale and kept me in the loop the entire time. I don't think I could emphasis enough the great communication from Joe. He answered his phone every time I called, even at wonky hours and weekends. An amazing team with integrity and the knowledge to sell homes. I would recommend to everyone. ---- Cassandra W, 5/3/2012

My husband and I met Matt Gover of Team Ratcliffe at an open house and instantly liked his demeanor and over time his work ethic. He became our agent., and for nearly a year worked tirelessly with us to find the perfect home, not easy in todays market of multiple offers and cash buyers. His hard work and dedication to us and our search paid off. We are now enjoying our beautiful home. We can't thank him and Pam Ratcliffe enough for going the extra mile to help us close the deal.

So if you're looking for a truly dedicated and professional Team look no farther then Team Ratcliffe, Thanks a milliom Matt, Pam and Joe! We really miss seeing you guys. ----Laura and Jim B, 5/25/2010

Joe Gover is the epitome of professional. He was always available. He kept us updated every step of the way, and when we ran into some problems with the listing agent, his mild-mannered personality took on the necessary edge to get our needs met. No question, we'll use Joe again, and we'll recommend him to anyone who asks. ---- Elizabeth S, 12/8/2011
