Short Sales & Foreclosures
Michigan Loan Workout Attorneys
In today’s real estate market, most people and businesses owe more on their property than their property is worth.
At Cooper & Riesterer, PLC, we understand that property values have significantly declined, and many property owners are underwater on their homes and businesses. Many of our clients have experienced hardships and cannot afford to continue mortgage payments due to a job loss, decrease in income, or loss of customers. Individuals and businesses in these situations are too often confused, disheartened, and simply do not know what to do. For several decades, our firm has been helping homeowners and commercial property owners negotiate various loan workout agreements with their lenders. We walk our clients through the legal, credit, and tax implications of short sales, deed in lieu of foreclosures, and other workout options so that clients can choose and understand the path that is right for them. Our clients are located throughout Michigan, and we can help you understand your options too. Contact our short sale and foreclosure attorneys today.

Residential and commercial short sale transactions share many of the same essential concerns. There are various impediments to a successful and beneficial short sale transaction; we’ve seen them and we educate our clients on how best to address and prepare for them. If a foreclosure is looming, our clients often benefit from the knowledge that we have to share on the foreclosure process which allows them to prepare for their lives after foreclosure. In some cases, there may be other options available to avoid foreclosure, such as a deed in lieu of foreclosure, modification agreement, or forbearance agreement.
