Stepping up short-sale efforts

RE/MAX hosts broadcast to educate agents

Real estate franchise giant RE/MAX International this week promoted new short-sale incentives as an alternative to foreclosure during a broadcast to affiliates across the country.

The presentation, which featured Laurie Maggiano, director of policy for the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Homeowner Preservation, among other speakers, coincided with the April 5 launch of the revisions to the federal Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program, which is a part of the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).
