"Greetings, Bill! From the land of open beaches and open gyms! I did see your comments and I have not encountered such an FHA situation, I'm sorry to say. I don't see any shot, but think Brett has given you good advice!"
"Hello, Wendy. I hope you're doing well down there in the land of sun and socially-distanced fun.
Did you see my earlier comments about the FHA owner, past due for 7+ years? Have you ever seen FHA approve a…"
"I think that people who remain unemployed will be screwed and that many o thers who get pay cuts will run into trouble when it comes to a repayment plan or loan modifications. I feel many people who's income go back to normal likely will face…"
"@Brett Thanks for the feedback. Your comments affirm what I've experienced with FHA. Often a challenge navigating the one-size-fits-all rules written by faceless Federal bureaucrats. I'm not optimistic on this file, but…"
"You'd need to reach out to a HUD representative If you don't know any you can email then you need to open a ticket at NOVAD to have one reach out to you. The general concept is that once it's 40 months past due that it's a hard…"
"@Brett & @Guerry. I normally steer away from any FHA file that's this far past due, but didn't know if the military serviceman wrinkle might allow a more favorable result. Any suggestions for getting some…"
"@Bill, most reps are unaware of that guideline. HUD will decline this file when a variance to open the PFS program is submitted. Never seen a variance for the 40month rule once it began to be enforced. The file is likely a waste of time and this…"
"LAST PAYMENT 7 YEARS AGO.... I have an owner relocated by the military seven years ago, thereby forced to move from his home with the FHA mortgage. The mortgage servicer (Selene Financial) suggested he now apply for a short sale. My…"
Yah!!!! I agree with that one hundred percent, however too late someone else told them. Yes, your input is very helpful, that is how I feel across the board. I did contact their attorney and that is what he advised them to do :) Thanks so much Fiona
Dear Stephanie, in reference to HUD short sales. I have a client who owes $280k on his mortgage and his house is comped at $330. We have it priced as a non short sale at $319, tons of showings no offers, house needs some work and updating at that price. Someone suggested to him to stop paying his mortgage and short sell it at $279. Given the big difference in price I feel this would arouse a suspision with the bank (rightfully so) and suggest we drop the price in 30 day incriments by $10k if no offers, right now a $305k offer will break him even with no foreclosure on his credit. He refuses to and just wants to drop it so he can get out. Thoughts???
