Targeting the BPO Agent and/or Appraiser via MLS

I've often found with standard sale agents, they do all they can to sell the property for the highest price.  Unfortunately, the goal of the short sale is to bring the most offers at the most realistic market value and do it quickly.


Here is some food for thought.  Sell it like it is.  If the property is in poor condition, target the investors.  Put the bad photos in, make sure the comments indicate how much work is needed and whether there are any location issues or other…

Seasoned Broker-Associate in FL getting involved

OK, so I have obtained the listing agreement and it "appears" the seller, who never resided in the property, will cooperate with other docs needed by the two lenders.

When do I need all those docs from the seller.  I have an offer coming in I'm told.  Do I wait until offer is in hand? Or do I begin now getting the list of things ready?  I keep getting different replies from different "experienced" folks in area...

In short, what is your best experience in the last 6 months…

Question on New Law.......................

How does the new law that went into effect on November 1st,2012 that if you can no longer afford your home due to illness in the home.  It is my understanding that you can turn the keys and title over to bank of America due to illness. Since the person that lived in the home can long live there by themselve and have to live in assitant living.  I know the loan is a Freddie Mac backed loan with Bank of America.  Can you tell me who we would call and how the new law works?
