10 Tips to Survive Today’s Florida Real Estate Market: Free Workshop

Buying and selling Florida short sales, foreclosures, and REOs (Real Estate Owned) are not for the faint of heart says foreclosure defense lawyer Roy Oppenheim. He regularly shares his insight with the media and now offers a Florida real estate workshop targeted at homeowners and real estate professionals looking for trusted legal direction in today’s murky waters of real estate buying, selling and investing.

The workshop will be split into three strategy segments: buying Florida real estate, defending Florida foreclosures, and investors looking for opportunities. Attendees will leave with Oppenheim’s Top 10 Tips to Survive in Today’s Florida Real Estate Market.

For example: In a recent article in the Daily Business Review about the Florida Supreme Court’s foreclosure task force Oppenheim commended the task force for recommending mandatory mediation.

“One of the big problems that borrowers have had is getting in touch with an intelligent human being who has authority at the bank,” Oppenheim commented in the article. “Most of the time you’re dealing with people just pushing paper.”

The 53-page report starts off by describing the Florida foreclosure crisis and recession as a massive traffic jam during rush hour, in a thunderstorm during hurricane evacuation with a lane closed due to construction.

“Today you need a tough set of armor to fight the battles whether you are buying or selling Florida real estate,” said Oppenheim, who has represented buyers and sellers through bust and boom markets for the past 20 years. “The red tape and unchartered territory makes this a brutal market for everyone from the court systems to the lenders to the homeowners.”

The Oppenheim Law workshop provides insight for homeowners on their options during real estate troubles including: foreclosure defense, Florida mortgage modification, deed-in-lieu, short sale advice, bankruptcy, deficiency judgments, and counterclaims against the banks.
