Harris Bank Short Sale

I've done a lot of Short Sales, but I've never done one with Harris Bank. Has anyone completed a Short Sale with Harris Bank? Also, do they have any specific Short Sale Documents that need to be filled out? Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Wachovia has foreclosed! Changed rules in the middle of the game..dirty pool

My Wachovia Fast Track Short Sale listing, with accepted offer, was foreclosed on 8/10 despite written assurance from the asset manager that they would not foreclose. If this has happened to you since Wachovia changed the rules in the middle of the game, please contact me so that we can pursue Wachovia for lost commissions, etc. Henry Weiss... [email protected]

Short Sale Heaven

Short Sale , Deed in Lieu, Loan Modification, Foreclosure, HAMP, HAFA in California and what they mean to you.

Under the HAFA program you have the option of doing a Short Sale or Deed in Lieu. According to current FHA guidelines you can buy another home 2 years after the short sale. The lenders are required to give you at least 120 days to market the home and obtain an offer. The lender does not have to give you more time and you are…

Short Sale Company

Okay, to be honest, I try to stay away from Short Sales, but seems like a hard thing to do:0(

Do You need a Hardship to Qualify For a Short Sale?

Well that's a good question. What do you think? Most folks would probably answer this question with a resounding YES! But...what if I told you the answer is " don't necessarily need a hardship to qualify for a Short Sale. You may be able to do a Strategic Short Sale". Heck, big business and lenders do them…

Short Sale Approval Letters ARE just OFFER LETTERS

Can not stress this enough.....EVERYTHING on a short sale is negotiable, including ANYTHING that comes over on an approval letter.....

If you or the Seller does not like wording, commission amounts, or short sale consequences, then ASK THEM TO CHANGE THE LETTER!!!!

Most will if you negotiate properly.

Now go kick some butts!!!

If lender is not communicating, do you have an obligation to communicate that offer has fallen through?

Do you immediately call the lender to say the offer is kaput when you haven't heard from the lender in weeks on end?

Do you wait until you hear from the lender, hoping against hope that the short sale approval process -- whatever it may be -- is working its way through the channels and by the time you hear from the lender you will have another offer?

Of course, when contacted by the lender you should explain the situation, but should you remain silent until that call…
