BofA if you pay your bills NO SHORT SALE

Real Estate Agent with / Signature Homes

It basically amounts to extortion and bribery to require a seller make a contribution or accept a promisary note at the last moment after going through the process and trying to do a short-sale on non-recourse loans. 

If BofA determines that the seller has continued payments to everyone else they will likely request a promissary note or cash contribution before approving the short-sale according to this BofA employee.

Can't say I blame B of A for trying to cover their assets... especially when a dead beat is paying everyone else!

Although I've sen this happen first hand with BofA, I don't think it's just them. I think other banks pull credit as well and review full financials of the payee(s).

Wayne & Linda - what if the only way they can pay the rest of their bills is BECAUSE they stopped paying their mortgage?  what makes you think they are deadbeats? should they stop buying food/elec/water so they can pay an upside down mortgage?  When the banks get billions and the avg homeowner gets SQUAT, what are we they supposed to do when they fall on hard times?


damn proxy errors are showing up left & right
