The Loss of a home is always accompanied by many other hardships...I commend our Sellers for the courage they have had in endurance of the deck they have been dealt. More than that...the strength to move on and have a brighter vision for the future with the hard work it takes to "get back on that horse" after multiple personal issues have plagued them.
No one gets married imagining divorce...the perfect job that got down sized...the spouse who was taken ill...the disability no one planned...and the list goes on and on...and tears fall and we share them during the short sale process until we get to the day when we can end this chapter and begin again and the home is closed.
It is more than OK to feel badly....and we well understand your feelings. You know you have done the very best thing you could do in your situation...and we are here to help and make the process the very best it can possibly be during this difficult time.
No...you do not have to go to the closing..you may choose a time that works for you and go to the title company and presign closing documents very privately. If tears are shed...that's Ok too.
If you or anyone you know is unable to pay their mortgage for reasons of hardship...please call the Hansons. No matter where you live, we will find a caring and competent agent to help you make the best decision you can make during this time.
