Ocwen/FHA Shortsale forced into a Loan Mod

My clients were denied a loan mod back in January and were suggested by Ocwen to find a shortsale agent and list their home for sale. So that's what they did, they contacted me and we listed their home. My clients accepted an offer and we emailed it to the bank along with the RMA and all corresponding documents to initiate the shortsale in March. I was told it would be 45-60 days for the review process and I was given an appt. with the "relationship manager" for end of May. In our first…

Economic Stabilization Project

I recently had a Realtor forward a short sale contract to my office where the Buyer is Economic Stabilization Project. I have never heard of this before and saw some posts on here from 2012. Has anyone has any interaction with them since. I am a little nervous about moving forward with the short sale for the clients as I have not really been able to get much information on the company.

Any information anyone has is greatly appreciated.

I have a client who purchased her home with a BOA financing. A year later she applied for a home equity again thru BOA. BOA sold the home equity to Ameristar. Simple enough, BOA is the primary, Ameristar is the secondary. Well no, apparently when she applied for the home equity, BOA somehow made that the primary making the primary secondary. Now she is doing a short sale. How do I figure this out for sure?

Short sale difference

Does anyone know if there is a way to find out if a bank will waive the difference on a balance owed from a short sale? Are there any banks that absolutely will not waive it and send a client a 1099?

Short sale and divorce

I have a divorced couple doing a short sale. They are both very cooperative. Banks aren't. The wife went back to her maiden name and banks will not accept her authorization with her signature under the maiden name. I can get her to sign in her maiden name but will her docs such as filed taxes and pay stubs be an issue. I already have buyers who really want this home.

Disputing valuation with Freddie Mac

I have a buyer who has been trying to buy a short sale property for the longest time. He wants this house. It has foundation issues. We gave an engineers report to the listing agent. Cost to repair is $75,000+. House was listed at $157,000 bank wants $154,000 plus they want a promissory note from the seller for $18,000. Is this legal? Also, I asked the agent to file a dispute with Freddie Mac, it's been almost 2 weeks. How long does it take Freddie Mac to reply?
