Good morning, I have contacted BSI 3 times a day, always on hold and never get a return call. Most of the time they say I am npt authorized, until I give them the page # of the loss mitigation package (PG #18), then no response. I was able to get through almost 30 days previous and they said it was sent to the state for approval and would be back in 10 days. So it has been 20 days and I cannot get any one to respond. Any suggestions will help.

I posted back in October 2013, but here is an update.  BSI at one point asked for a holds harmless agreement, they were willing to repair the home to bring the property to better condition to sell higher, even though they weren't the owner of the home.  However, after discovering the property had been broken into, they said nevermind.  I continued to submit several offers, all to no avail.  They wanted 278,000 for the property and the most I could get was 268,000.  It was a fixer to say the least.  However, I finally sent them an article about our market, showing them that sellers were asking too much and buyers weren't willing to pay too much and it was creating a tug of war.  After this article and submitting one last offer at 270,000 they finally agreed to the short sale.  I received approval within 10 days of submitting the offer and we closed finally in December.  The new buyers have rehabbed the home and I am looking forward to working with BSI again.  However, keep in mind, most negotiators and asset managers have this notion that agents suck and they don't work.  So, work hard to prove to your negotiator that you are not one of those, show them that you care and you're on their side.  That is what I did and we finally worked out well as a team.  I just emailed that negotiator today because I have a new BSI short sale and I'm hoping to work with him again.  I would also keep in mind, it's not BSI we're up against, it's the investor.  They are just the middle man.  Be VERY involved in your short sale and you'll get further.  It may not always work, but it's almost impossible to fail if you try.

@Sara - the loan was previously FHA serviced by BoA.  This property has been badly neglected & in need of a lot of repair, I had it listed at just $22k and then the seller moved out of state blah blah blah.  Several months later I received a call from BSI - the guy is aware of the listed price, aware of the condition, etc etc.  When I said I wasn't interested in working the listing anymore he says BSI will pay a flat $1900 commission; I just needed to get a cash offer.  OK. So I do exactly that.  Then BSI guy says oh, we need pictures of disrepair, estimates to fix etc etc.  So I submit pictures & ballpark estimates for majors like roof and electrical, trash out and eviction of 2 squatters. 

BSI rejects the offer countering at a staggering $45,000 (45k wouldn't happen even if all fixed up)

So we stalemate.  My listing agreement is with the seller, not BSI and in any event, it does not include getting quotes from contractors to do repair work - this is not a REO.  BSI has absolutely no regard for the time & work it takes a contractor to visit the site & work up a quote.  Andy at BSI stated that Realtors should expect to work 7 days a week as that is their job.  Sorry, Andy, I don't work 7 days a week...I have a life.  So, my one and only encounter with BSI has been bad.  I don't appreciate being lied to on any level.

BSI recently declined a cash investor offer only 10k less than their BPO value, stating they preferred an owner occupied buyer.  I recently submitted an owner occupied buyer for 5k less than the cash investor offer and I've not yet heard back. They did approach me, asking if they could do repairs to bring in a higher offer, however once I asked if we could do repairs to procure a higher offer they said no because 'the property was vandalized under the agents care'.  Seriously? As if I have control over a vacant house being broken into.  If the offer I have does not get countered or accepted, I will file a complaint with the OCC and reach out to my congressman because there is no reason why the bank should not help a homeowner avoid foreclosure when a viable offer is being brought to the table.  Overall, experience with the negotiation has been THE BEST EVER!  Experience with the investor behind BSI, not encouraging thus far.

Out of curiousity @Wendy Smith- do you know which lender had the loan before it went over to BSI? 

Comment by Wendy Smith on October 16, 2013 at 5:46pm
My first with BSI and its not going well at all. BSI rejected good offer stating maybe they will repair and resell. Huh? Guess they better own it before repair and resell aka Fix n flip. How do they figure on pulling permits?

I have a property listed, it is not in the best condition and would only attract someone with cash to buy it.  Most buyers with cash however are investors.  But, BSI has declined a viable offer because it is not an owner occupied buyer.  How can a servicer dictate who buys a property?  I can see they would be able to dictate price, but how can they dictate who the buyer is.

We have an FHA short sale with BSI and only have fax to work with thus far.  Has anyone else had any luck with them?

Just listed my first short sale with BSI. Good thing they use Equator. :)
