Yah!!!! I agree with that one hundred percent, however too late someone else told them. Yes, your input is very helpful, that is how I feel across the board. I did contact their attorney and that is what he advised them to do :) Thanks so much Fiona
Dear Stephanie, in reference to HUD short sales. I have a client who owes $280k on his mortgage and his house is comped at $330. We have it priced as a non short sale at $319, tons of showings no offers, house needs some work and updating at that price. Someone suggested to him to stop paying his mortgage and short sell it at $279. Given the big difference in price I feel this would arouse a suspision with the bank (rightfully so) and suggest we drop the price in 30 day incriments by $10k if no offers, right now a $305k offer will break him even with no foreclosure on his credit. He refuses to and just wants to drop it so he can get out. Thoughts???
