Bank America has approved this Fort Walton Beach Florida home for a Ginnie Mae USDA short sale. It was a lengthy process. Bank of America only recently added Ginnie Mae short sales to its Equator processing platform. This file was handled through emails and phone calls directly with a Bank of America Ginnie Mae specialist.
What is Ginnie Mae? Ginnie Mae is a governmenty entity that guarantees VA, HUD and USDA Rural Housing Services mortgages. This makes these loans more valuable as investments when sold to the secondary market, thus more attractive to mortgage servicers, such as Bank of America.
What about the deficiency on a USDA short sale? The deficiency is the amount of the note not covered by net proceeds of the sale. According to USDA Ginnie Mae short sales guidelines:
A borrower who successfully sells the property securing the loan using the PFS option is relieved of the mortgage obligation. The borrower shall not be pursued for deficiency judgments by either the Servicer or the Agency
One caveat about Ginnie Mae USDA short sales - you will not be approved unless you miss at least one payment. This is not true with many other short sales programs.
If you are considering short sale to avoid foreclosure of your Fort Walton Beach home, contact Wendy Rulnick, Broker. You may qualify for USDA, Ginnie Mae, VA, FHA, HAFA or another short sale program.
