Can borrower in default get copy of BPO when they say offers are too low?

I was surprised how difficult the negotiator was on first contact today.He said our value was 'very low' when I know it was not. He is basing his comments on the BPO.I heard borrowers can lnow find out what that value is, but he refused to tell me. .Anyone know if we can get the value? The sale is in 3 weeks. Oh and yes, this is a Freddie Mac loan.See More

Are there any Freddie Mac restrictions concerning investors over other buyers?Thanks! (could not find how to thank Kevin for his last answer, so thanks.See More

Plaza Home Mortgage handling Freddie Mac loan

We're initiating a short sale with Plaza Home Mortgage and were surprised how quickly they filed a Notice of Sale after the loan mod failed. They are quoting 23 days to auction.This is a Freddie Mac loan. Anyone familiar this institution and how it goes with a FM loan under them? Can't find anything on them re short sales on the internet.See More
