Understanding the Short Sale Process

As head of Diditan Financial, Inc., Arie Abekasis leads a company that offers customers a one-stop solution for competitive mortgages and home loans. Arie Abekasis and his team assist clients in tax reassessments and have experience in short sales, which occur when the balance owed on a property exceeds the value of that can be achieved by sale of the property.

Through the short sale, holders of security interest release their liens on the property and settle for an amount less than the owed amount. The sale does not release the debtor from the deficiency, which is the loan shortfall. Borrowers are still obligated to pay back this amount fully. It does offer a number of distinct advantages through protecting credit and having minimal impact on credit scores. In addition, with the home being put up for sale, mortgage payments are no longer necessary. The short sale process additionally benefits home buyers, as they are able to access properties at prices lower than their actual value.

Characteristics of Tuscan Homes

Arie Abekasis is the founder and owner of Diditan Group, a developer that builds and sells homes in Southern California. At Diditan Group, Arie Abekasis works with highly-skilled professionals and artisans to give each client a beautiful Tuscan-style home.

The overriding element of domestic Tuscan architecture is the blend of modern styles and Old World European aesthetics. The exterior of a Tuscan home is usually composed of natural stones, such as limestone, travertine, and marble. A distinct Tuscan feature is the inclusion of an elaborate wrought iron gates as an entrance. To further emphasize the classic European aesthetic, the entryways may be surrounded by weathered stone walls and covered in crawling vines.

The interior of a Tuscan home usually includes glass and stone tiles and terracotta floors, as well as intricately textured high ceilings. The marble aesthetic is continued indoors with beautiful works of mosaic art on the floor. The ceilings, meanwhile, often incorporate wood beams that have been refurbished from old Tuscan farmhouses.
