Bank of America FHA Short Sales can not be processed on

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Remax 24/7 Real Estate

Another interesting experience with B of A. At least you can talk with someone faster these days but after talking with three different people, I found out the can not process the offer through equator. Ironically the person could not email or fax the documents. So if you are doing a B of A FHA short sale, you need their specific forms...I had to google the forms and you will find the PDF online. Here's the link to the form they are legal size.

Hope this help everyone.

I set the right market determined price and convey the correct information to the banks, I can help successfully facilitate both residential and commercial situations where financial stress and market changes result in non-performing (upside down) loans as it relates to real estate property. This net result to my clients, is faster resolution and reducing long term credit damage.

Hi Thomas, I will file that new information since I have three short sale listing appointments this week. Don't you just wish they could get all this stuff standardized? Goodness..

Let's hope this lender doesn't follow the path of Wells Fargo: No more extensions on approval letters - close by the approval date - or don't close at all!

You are a life saver on the forms. B of A has been trying to email them to me for days but the button wont open to let me print them.  Their system is messed up!! Ive done all the Java, Chrome, Adobe, updated nothing works.  I tried Active Rain on a long shot and you came though on the forms.
