VA COMPROMISE SALE – SHORT SALE FOR VA’s - Your New Home Team with Remax Premier


Each of us face challenges in our lives. In our Distressed Home Solutions section we cover Short-Sales and how they can be utilized. For Veterans and Service Members, this process is called "The VA Compromise Sale" and is an opportunity to help members who may have a difficult time with their current housing situation.

These stressful situations can arise from an array os challenges. For Service Members, it may be due to PCS Orders - Permanent Change of Station or due to a loss of income, or other financial challenges such as Medical Bills. The VA Compromise Sale can be the ideal solution in a trying time. Learn the specifics of the VA Compromise Sale by watching our video featuring Chris Birk, author of The Book on VA Loans, and a representative from the VA Home Loan Guaranty Program.
