Brett Goldsmith replied to Neil L.'s discussion URGENT: SLS forcing use of now? in the group Specialized Loan Services LLC
"Typically you can't. They can deny the seller for a short sale for not cooperating. Mr Cooper does this often. If they did a value and if the offer is in line with the value, then you might be able to bypass it."

Hi Brett,

I have been working on a short sale since February, Fannie Mae is investor, was told today that my seller is not eligible because he is not delinquent on his mortgage payments. He is a veteran that retired from the air force and had to move to Wisconsin. He got a job as a postal worker and has a security clearance. I had heard that once he misses the 31 days of  his mortgage payment that Fannie Mae will grant the short sale. The junior lienholder is Chase who has been very responsive. What should I tell this AF veteran to do? Thanks for your help with this.

Short Sale Vs Short Pay Off

Posted on April 22, 2020 at 9:00am 1 Comment

They are similar in that nature but the outcome is distinguished as one program transfers the home to a new purchaser and the other is a designed for a borrower to retain ownership of their home.

I had an approval and the buyer walked then they would not allow us to submit at the same terms due to this guideline. We also had a…

Nationstar is now Mr. Cooper!

Nationstar is now Mr. Cooper! They do have a new Mr. Cooper letterhead authorization letter and they are still utilizing equator. Nothing internally has changed to our understanding of the short sale process for now. This was a move to re-brand the company.
