Dealing with repairs on bank owned homes - 02/20/11 08:46 PM
Just this week, I had a sale fall apart due to buyers with unrealistic expectations about the home they were purchasing. Bank owned properties come with deferred maintenance issues. Even move-in ready, seemingly perfect houses can have troubles. Many of these homes have been vacant for months, or had former owners that didn't have the money to maintain them.

Items of a cosmetic nature… scratches in the wood floor, stains in the carpet, trim missing in the living room, bedroom light fixtures needing bulbs, etc. I personally don't think they belong in an inspection report… especially on an REO property. A lot of these homes have taken a beating, and it's typically evident when you walked in the door. These types of items are irrelevant to the bank (they usually already know about them from the pictures the listing agent takes prior to putting on the market) and they should be to the buyer.

Speedy short sale approval through local servicer - LBPS (Lender Business Process Services) of Beaverton, OR - 02/02/11 01:19 AM
I was lucky to receive a phone call in November from a nice couple in Ridgefield, WA needing to short sale their family home for job relocation. They found me on ActiveRain, and asked if I had any experience with their lender, LBPS (Lender Business Process Services) of Beaverton, OR. I hadn't worked with LBPS yet on a short sale, but gave them my references and asked that they give me the opportunity... I would certainly do my best.
They made the decision to list their Ridgefield, WA short sale with me in November. We received an offer in (0 comments)
