Short Sale with ING Direct

Who has experience asking and getting ING DIRECT in DE to increase the agent commission to 6%?  What needs to be done in order to get them off their stated $35,000 max. commission payment?  Please help.

Also, can a non-CA Lender ask that the Buyer use an out of state (in PA) escrow agent?  What are the Seller's rights if any here?

Thank you. HELP!

Short Sale with Chase so far so good..just follow the brick road

I listed a short sale with 2 loans serviced by Chase. CLTV is LESS that 50% of market value. Submitted a CASH buyer and assigned a negotiator in less than 3 weeks. Today, he is submitting my package to the investor. 

We'll see...NOD in May 2012 but nothing posted in public record. Negotiating to include payoff to release an abstract of judgement from a deceased husband over a year ago. 

Scheduled to close AUGUST 30.

FlagStar Declining and turning down doing a short sale

Flagstar is denying one of my files saying that my home owner can afford the home and they will not do a short sale.  His only option is to pay off the home in full.  Has anyone experienced this before?  He has not missed a payment yet either. Does he have to miss a payment before he does the short sale?  If you have experienced this with Flagstar please let me know.  I have closed a few short sales with them already so this is a first for me as far as completely being turned down to do a…

Anyone have problems w/buyer buying a short sale property with an IRA.

Waited 6 months for an approval letter on a short sale my buyer is wanting to purchase from Wells Fargo with Freddie Mac Investor. He started out using a loan n at about the 3 month mark decided to use his IRA. Listing agent and I both decided an addendum to change verbiage on buyer name would be best added after approval was even given. Otherwise short sale may be stopped n restarted. Upon uploading the change, days before closing, the Equator system kicked out a note from negotiator saying,… Continue
