The rules of Short Sales just changed. This book is designed for real estate professionals, but it will explain a Short Sale in detail to anyone. In a Short Sale, a property is sold and the lenders get paid less than the full amount owed on the loans, i.e., the payment is "short." This is an important alternative to foreclosure because the sellers move with dignity with less damage to their credit, the buyers get a house in better condition, and the bank makes on average 30% more money. Short Sales are an important part of America's economic recovery; this book will help you make the right choices for everyone involved in the process.

How to Sell Your Small BusinessFor every small business owner, for consultants, and for brokers - this book has the nuts-and-bolts information to help you sell your small business.

Rich Madzel was the owner of a small business. When a respected broker was unable to sell it, Rich put a plan together, implemented it himself, and had a check 14 days after contacting the right potential buyer.  With a pocket full of money, a head full of how-to ideas, and too much time on his hands, he developed a unique approach to selling a small business.  After learning that his way was similar to how the merger and acquisition experts sell bigger businesses, he wrote this book to help you, or your broker sell your small business.
