BB - SEVEN MONTHS???? Oh, gosh please don't tell me that.  I have a couple right now and it's as painful as a root canal!

Good job. Was this old B of A or Countrywide? I've got one with RealTime right now. Last year they were fairly flexibile, this year not so much. Oh well. . . . what are you gonna do, right?

Both mortgages were CW.

Carol, The CW short sales take 5-7 months. A true BofA can go quicker. It's no big deal as long as you have a whole bunch of them pending. They only take a few weeks to sell.

Melissa, I found RealTime to be very agreeable. Their first email to me of course told me they would only pay 4% commission and we want 10% of our mtg and blah blah blah. I just ignored it and then sent over the HUD the way I wanted it and they accepted it.

I believe a lot of this has to do with getting them a deal as close to market value as possible.

Great job, BB.  We all have short sale experiences.  Mine have been mostly good this year, so I am planning on doing more of them.

BB - That is helpful information to know because the one that does not already ahve an offer is a CW mortgage.  At least now I know what to expect and how to set expectations.  Well, Congrats on the short sale approval!!!

Being up here in Montreal, short sales are definitely not my thing.  But I love the way you presented this post BB: short and to the point, very easy to read.  Great presentation.

Definitely congratulations are in order! I have also dealt with Countrywide on a few and they are long hauls, but in the end it is worth it. Great job!

Way to stick with it Bryant.  I'm very impressed that the buyer stuck it out.  I normally go through two or three when they take this long.

I have a 11 month old short sale with the 1st National City, 2nd BOA and Genworth Mortgage insurance.  BOA has approved (actually a few months ago), NCM (has been the hold up and it was referred to a contract, Loan Resolution Corp before anything positive happened) has sent to MI for approval and if they approve it goes to investor.  This one should close.  I follow up two to three times a week.

Congrads on closing your deal.
