Bank of America Short Sales System is Changing Again
Just when when we thought Bank of America was finally getting the hang of processing/negotiating short sales; they go and change the whole system all over again! Not that their system was great before but at least the processors/negotiators knew how to handle the system as well as knew who to contact in case of any emergencies, etc & the same went for our end as Realtors & Real Estate Agents – we knew where to go to get things done.
Now, the new system seems to be taking things in a wrong direction. The new guidelines for Bank of America Processors/Negotiators is to gather all the information for a specific file/client. Once the file has all the needed information Bank of America will then proceed with the short sale. Keep in mind this processor/negotiator is in the State in which the transaction is taking place( IE California property; California Processor/Negotiator). Now with all the checkmarks in place the file is then sent off to “Upper Management” and in one specific example for one of our files is in Kentucky.
Now, I don’t know where Bank of America has received this great idea from but don’t see how it will benefit it’s clients in terms of short sales as the “Upper Management” doesn’t know one main factor; market conditions. This could lead to more foreclosures on Bank of America’s end and does not look great for prospective short sale clients. Not to mention that the time zone difference also changes things significantly.
Just some creative thinking on our end but seems to me like Bank of America has some issues with fraud which is why they are resorting to “Upper Management” Approval in different states but then again, anyone can commit fraud, so why delay the transaction any longer than what it already takes. Could this be Bank of Americas way of showing they want to Foreclose on more Homeowners by giving them tougher conditions in which to successfully negotiate a short sale? It’s too early to tell just yet but we all hope that Bank of America is going in the right direction and that one day Bank of America short sale will not be so rigorous for homeowners and will be an adaptation of the many other bank who can produce short sale approvals in less than 45 days.

Bank of America starting to Lease-Back properties to Homeowners – Is it too Late?
Just as Bank of America is falling apart they go and talk about doing some good in America. Now this is all just talk at this point in time but if rolled out many home owners would be able to sell their home and still be able to live in it – just no longer be the home owner.
Since the bubble has bursted the use of a “Lease-Back Agreement” has been Illegal by all bank stating on the short sale approval letter that homeowners are not allowed to remain in possession of the home after the close of escrow. [click to continue…]

You are not alone Even PopStar Rihanna is doing a Short Sale!
Just to shed some light on the subject of Foreclosure & Short Sales…this economy is hitting everyone and this is the proof! Homeowners have many options when it comes to avoiding foreclosure and the one that Rihanna found to be the best is doing a short sale on here $4.5 Million Beverly Hills Estate. Why do you think she did this? In many cases (95% as not all short sales actually close) the short sale will remove all debt from the property and will not allow the bank to come after you for any remainder of the debt after foreclosure.
