Hi Brett,

I have been working on a short sale since February, Fannie Mae is investor, was told today that my seller is not eligible because he is not delinquent on his mortgage payments. He is a veteran that retired from the air force and had to move to Wisconsin. He got a job as a postal worker and has a security clearance. I had heard that once he misses the 31 days of  his mortgage payment that Fannie Mae will grant the short sale. The junior lienholder is Chase who has been very responsive. What should I tell this AF veteran to do? Thanks for your help with this.

Nationstar is now Mr. Cooper! They do have a new Mr. Cooper letterhead authorization letter and they are still utilizing equator. Nothing internally has changed to our understanding of the short sale process for now. This was a move to re-brand the company.

Why Use A Short Sale Processor?

“No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.” 

Some agents will not touch a short sale file without their processor(s) and others are scared to relinquish any control whatsoever. We come across a mix of both and find that once an agent has a processor who adds enough value to their business they will never turn back.

A processor should know 10X than you about short sales and everything that goes into…
