Home Point Financial

In all my years of  negotiating short sales I have never done one with this company.  I am on the buyer side of this transaction and the listing agent is a little vague on the process with them. Has anyone handled short sales with Home Point? What can I expect? Do they accept electronic signatures?, etc Any direct phone number to loss mit or short sale department Also the borrower is deceased so there would be no reason to review for home retentionThanksTony MoralesSee More

SPS dragging out short sale review

SPS is delaying short sales by using invalid valuations. The BPO reports show 2 different values:..current-30 days As-Is and, 90-120 days  As-IS. They are countering the offer at the 90-120 day value meaning they want an offer based on that future value,, not the current AS-IS value. We have submitted our dispute with comparables and contractor estimates. They then say their review takes  "up to" 30 days.  Then on the 28th day they send out a letter saying they need more time and could take an…See More

"Had they disclosed that they were asking for a credit and that credit was going for short sale negotiations then the bank would decline. Paying out of commissions has always been acceptable as it is not an additional loss "

Short Sale Negotiator Fraud

I have had many conversation over the last 10 years with agents that are contacted by companies that state the agent will get their full commission and the bank will pay the negotiation fee. I have even contacted some myself and they stated how they use a different name so that the lender is not aware that it is a negotiation companyHere is an interesting article of a company doing this and now the principles will be facing jail time  see attachedTony MoralesTM Short Sales ConsultingSee More

Short Sale with HERO Assessment

Posted on April 9, 2018 at 12:59pm 3 Comments

As anyone dealt with any short sale lenders that will agree to pay the HERO tax assessment?  Are lenders declining short sales due to the HERO being a "future" tax bill rather than a current or delinquent tax?  Need responses

Franklin Still Killing Short Sales

Posted on October 22, 2015 at 8:11am 0 Comments

I was hired by the listing agent to save this short sale  Franklin played their silly games. We offered $12,000.00   They countered back at $20,000.00  Buyer walked. Month and a half later obtained new buyer, whose offer was approved by  and the first lien holder, and allowing $20,000.00 to Franklin. They came back and countered at$28,000.00 claim they have new guideline. That is a crock.  This one will end up in foreclosure. Other than preaching to the choir, who can we reach out to stop…

Fannie Mae Countering above their own values

Posted on November 1, 2013 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

If you are in a real estate market that is going strong and values are increasing then this applies to you. My reliable sources have informed me that Fannie Mae will counter your offer above what their BPO or appraisal came in at.

As of November 1, 2013 they are instructing servicers to submit  all offers to them where the net proceeds are less than what they have required They are stating that they want the sales price to be inline with how their REO's are handled.

They are…

Fight Back Against Nationstar

Posted on February 23, 2013 at 8:20am 6 Comments

Nationstar has taken the position that they will dictate to agents and if you don't like it they will just close your file. Agents need to join together and not accept the silliness of Nationstar.  DO NOT ACCEPT 5% commission!  DO NOT ACCEPT that they will not pay title insurance or any other state regulated fees. Recently they closed my file because I questioned why they required a separate letter on a LLC buyer's letter head  their instruction said .....: Must…
