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.

A processor should know 10X than you about short sales and everything that goes into…

Ocwen Continues to Grow Buying Rescap's Servicing Platform (GMAC)

Posted on February 26, 2013 at 3:34pm 0 Comments

Ocwen is continuing to grow as they won an auction for Rescap's mortage servicing and origination assets. Files that were previously being serviced with GMAC will now be serviced by Ocwen.
