RE: Request for short sale for 12 Hans Street, Tampa Fl
To whom it may concern:
I bought my home at Saints Avenue May of last year. During that time, B & B Holdings employed me as an accountant and business was very good. My salary made sure that I could fully support my mortgage. Unfortunately, the economic downturn led B & B Holdings to be bankrupt.
I really love my house but I can no longer afford paying its mortgage this is why I am selling it quickly. I believe that a foreclosure on my record will affect my future, which is why I am asking your help to avoid it.
