Short Sale Superstars Website Rocks!!

It has been several months since I signed up for Short Sale Superstars. It is the one site I have found that has information that I like to say "you can sink your teeth in", it is not fluff but real time information to aid all of us with our short sales. I have been referring agents to this site everytime someone asks me a question.

Yesterday an agent in our office, who is on the buying end, was frustrated with an OCWEN short sale. The bank was not responding for an extension.…

Request for copy of BPO denied

I have tried and so has the homeowner to get a copy of the BPO so that we know where BofA is coming up with their numbers. Every time, we are denied. BofA says we can't have a copy or know what it is! I talked to Fannie Mae and they said we should be able to get it, but no luck w/BofA. Any suggestions?

How Often Should You Call The Short Sale Listing Agent?

If you are a short sale buyer’s agent, it can often be frustrating waiting for any scrap of information for your buyer. After all, it might be three to five months before you get short sale approval. You don’t want to lose your buyer. It’s best to give…

Freddie Mac: Is there a HUMAN there???

Is there a HUMAN at Freddie Mac? As one of your largest investors, (80% of your stock I believe?), I was so hoping for some help with one of my Short Sales. Your CEO's have apparently decided that CHASE is a good investment as a "servicer" of a bunch of those under performing loans that I, and all of my tax-paying fellow-investors, are now holding the bag on.

I am challenging that decision.…

As A Buyer, Who Can I Contact at Capital One to Get a Short Sale Processed?

My husband and I have submitted a fair offer on a property that was approved for short sale with Capital One. A couple of months have gone by and no one has gotten back to our realtor - I'm running out of time but REALLY want to buy this property. Is there some way to get in contact with someone at the bank?

Bank Real Estate Solutions Inc. transformed a vacant house into a marketable home which procured a FULL PRICE contract within 27 days!

Flash back to summer 2009. 11XXX BridgeCreek Dr in Riverview was listed for sale (short sale). The owner could no longer afford to live there, so he moved his family to the panhandle, and left his home in the care of the listing Realtor. The home was empty, the power was off, and the pool started to resemble more of a swamp then an oasis. As the year dragged on, the house sat lonely and empty, no showings, no offers, and the price kept being reduced to try and force a sale. When the listing…

Hi folks. Today I want to clear up one big misunderstanding about the system.

Quite often I hear from agents, buyers and sellers that......"Equator accepted our offer" or "Equator denied our short sale." In fact, here's…
