"arms length" convenants and their impact on a short sale

I need to have some of you experts weigh in;

I have a must be short-sold.

My wife and I are going through a divorce

She was "quit claimed" off the property, but our state is a "community asset" state.

She wants to have someone she knows buy the house...have her stay in the home, and then rent it back to her. It would allow the kids to stay in the house and not be disrupted by a move.

If there is a…

New Report Flood Of Foreclosures Coming? Actually These Will Be Short Sales...

You may have heard or seen a report on a new flood of foreclosures coming. The data is showing owners have miss at lest one mortgage payment in the first quarter of 2010.

Navy Federal Credit Union Short Sale BEWARE of tactics Taking money from Parents account!!!!!!!!! ALERT

Shame on these bottom feeders. Navy Federal Credit Union likes to brag about helping our "family". One of our borrowers completing a short sale finds the following actions were taken by NFCU without knowledge:

"My second loan was with Navy Federal Credit Union. We agreed to complete a short sale and settle the account in good faith instead of walking away. In return, Navy Federal Credit Union withdrew money from my mothers account on three separate transactions. These…

Listing an Under Water Home with No Hardship

How do you list an under water home with no hardship. If the Seller is willing to bring the "difference" to the table does the Buyer have to be informed? Does this have to be "announced" in the MLS? I think there will be more of these transactions and I want to address them appropriately. Has anyone heard of the lender reducing the debt when there is no hardship?

BAC - Let's Start A Movement!

I would like to start a movement with BAC. All their approval letters should include the following:

Buyer (insert buyer's name from contract). **Replacement buyer subject to BAC approval.

Now wouldn't that eliminate being in escrow 3 to 4 to 5 times - assuming net to BAC was the same and no change in close of escrow date?

I say that while having 6 short sale escrows with them, and 3 approved - but it's absolutely pulling teeth and insanity.

When You Are Representing the Seller in A Short...Do "you" submit an offer on the property?

Pardon my "newness". I have been trying to avoid short sales and now have given in to the reality that they aren't going away. So, I have been researching short sale agents in my area and have run across this statement on a couple of websites:


Most banks will not stop the foreclosure process and start the short sale process until you have an offer on your home.…

How to Calculate Past Due Property Taxes for the HUD-1

"Why would we want to find the tax assessor records for a property?" you may ask. ANSWER: To prepare the HUD-1 before sending it to the short-sale lender. For example, a homeowner may be 2 years past due on their property taxes, but you fail to list the past-due taxes on the HUD-1. Then the short-sale lender approves the HUD-1 as WRITTEN. So you go to escrow, the title company runs a preliminary title report (AKA "prelim") and you find out that…

Cover Sheet Works Wonders & Equator can Mess with your Commission...

We have found that when submitting your complete short sale package to a bank it make easer if you include a “cover sheet” for each section of documents you are sending. (i.e.: paystubs, bank statements, taxes, purchase agreement, etc.) Cover sheets simply state the document that will follow in large bold type in the center of a blank page. They help to organize the package…

Short Sale Sellers are asking for some pocket money since they are in financial distress
